Gleeson Creates a Generation That Can Afford to Buy

Did you know that last year Gleeson sold 60 homes to people aged 21 or under? Gleeson are extremely proud of the fact that their affordable homes give first time buyers the opportunity of home ownership at such a young age.

Care Assistant Hannah Jackson, age 21, is just one of many young proud Gleeson purchasers across the north east after buying a home at Beck View, Middlesbrough and amazingly her mortgage repayments are nearly half the cost of her previous rent!

With deposits on Gleeson’s homes starting from just £4300 and a number of schemes available to help you get onto the property ladder there’s never been a better time to buy, whatever your age.

Hannah comments, “I didn’t even think buying was an option at my age. My sister and I only visited the Gleeson show home as she wanted some kitchen ideas, but once we realised how affordable they were, I ended up buying one! When I was renting, I was paying £450 a month whereas now my mortgage repayments are £270 a month and whilst it sounds very grown up I know this is a great investment for my future”.

Hannah adds, “To be honest I knew nothing about the home buying process but Gleeson’s staff went out of their way to help me and they were always on hand to answer all my questions.  They made my home buying journey really simple, it really is the best move I have ever made”.

Christine Douglas Sales Manager adds, “It was an absolute pleasure to help Hannah get on the property ladder.  We specialise in building homes for first time buyers and we know this is a completely new experience for them, which is why our Sales Negotiator are available to hold their hand through the whole process offering advice along the way.”
