Special Forces Scheme Helps Naval Couple to Complete Mission Impossible


Many young people view owning their own home as ‘mission impossible’ but thanks to the affordable prices of Gleeson’s properties at Barnburgh View, which start from only £119,995 for a 3 bedroom semi-detached home, plus a range of schemes on offer to help you get onto the property ladder, it can be ‘mission accomplished’ before you know it.

After finding their perfect home on the Barnburgh View development in Goldthorpe savvy buyers Bethany and Callum did their homework and realised that thanks to Callum’s job in the Royal Navy, they could use the Government’s ‘Special Forces Help to Buy’ scheme to help raise a deposit.

Open to armed services personnel the ‘Special Forces Help to Buy Scheme’ allows you to borrow up to 50% of your salary to contribute towards a deposit or legal fees. But hurry, the scheme will only run until 2018.

Callum said “The Special Forces scheme combined with affordable price of Gleeson’s homes enabled us to become proud new home owners, something that we never thought would be possible. We never expected to get onto the property ladder at such a young age.”


Maxine Baxter Gleeson Sales Manager says “Gleeson’s purchase assistance packages, government schemes and low interest rates make it the perfect time for first time buyers to get onto the property ladder. The new homes at Barnburgh View are really popular but we do have a couple that will be ready to move into this summer.  I’d advise people to book an appointment with our Sales Negotiator now to avoid missing out”
