It is a common assumption that home ownership is much easier when sharing the financial responsibility with a partner. Increasing house prices and a perception of larger deposits can put single people off. However, thanks to Gleeson’s range of purchase schemes and the low prices of their homes there has never been a better time to branch out on your own.
Communications Consultant Rachel McCaffrey is one of many Gleeson’s sole buyers who saw the advantages on getting onto the all-important property ladder and Gleeson was only too pleased to help her reach her goal.
Rachel, who purchased a home at Gleeson’s Glen Court development in Hebburn, found that the mortgage repayments were so cheap, that she was able to afford a larger property with an extra bedroom.
Rachel explains “I chose Hebburn as I grew up here and all of my family and friends live here. When I heard about the development, I thought I knew exactly the size of house I could afford, but I was disheartened when they had all sold out at the launch. I looked at the bigger properties and, after doing some calculations, I realised that the mortgage repayments would only be slightly more, so it made complete sense for me to go for it. I love owning my own home and being financially independent.”
Gleeson Sales Manager, Lindsey Oliver adds “Glen Court has proved to be one of our fastest selling developments and is really popular with local first time buyers. Rachel’s story is a great example of how we can get young, local people who want to stay near their families, onto the property ladder”.
More 2, 3 & 4 bedroom homes at Glen Court will be released for sale soon. For development details visit www.gleeson-homes.co.uk/new-homes/tyne-wear/glen-court
