Gleeson Homes is offering buyers the chance to buy a new house in Manchester with mortgage repayments starting from just £530 per month, which for many people is a cheaper option than renting.
This affordable mortgage repayment is based on purchasing a new home using the government backed FirstBuy scheme. With FirstBuy you can buy a 3 bedroom Gleeson house at the City East development in Beswick, or a 2 bedroom house at Grove Village in the Ardwick area of the city for just £102,396.
Gleeson is one of a select number of housebuilder chosen by the Government to allocate FirstBuy funding on its developments. Through the scheme a buyer owns 100% of their home but pays just 80% of the price and only requires a 5% deposit. The remaining 20% is provided as a loan which is interest free for 5 years.
Linda Matura, Sales Manager for Gleeson Homes explains, “Manchester is a vibrant, multicultural city which attracts people from all over the world to work and study. We are thrilled to offer FirstBuy at our Manchester developments. Many people don’t realise that it can be a cheaper option to buy a new home than to rent.”
Both the City East and Grove Village developments are located in up and coming areas of Manchester. Located in the Beswick area, City East is less than 2 miles from the city centre and close to the world famous Etihad Football Stadium.
Linda adds, “In the last few years there has been a huge amount of investment into the football ground and the surrounding area. This is due to continue with plans to make the area into a world class sporting destination. Gleeson’s spacious new 2, 3 & 4 bedroom homes at City East, which all feature on plot parking and gardens, not only represent fantastic value for money now but are a great investment for the future.
Situated in the Ardwick area of Manchester, Gleeson’s Grove Village is ideally located close to Manchester’s University and hospitals making it extremely popular with NHS workers. 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses are available at Grove Village priced from £102,396 with FirstBuy with a limited number of 2 bedroom apartments priced from £83,996.
FirstBuy is just one of Gleeson’s ‘Fantastic Five’ range of purchase enabling schemes, many of which are specifically aimed at first time buyers. Buyers wishing to purchase 100% of their home can take advantage of the Aspire scheme with the housebuilder contributing 5% towards the deposit, £500 towards legal fees and paying the valuation fee. Schemes are also available for parents wishing to help their children purchase a new home plus help if you have a house to sell.
Linda said, “What is great about our Fantastic Five range of schemes is that we can tailor them to suit a buyer’s circumstance. Our Sales Offices at Grove Village and City East are now open 7 days a week and I would urge buyers to visit the developments now to view our beautiful homes and speak to our Sales Negotiator about how Gleeson can help you buy a brand new home”.
