Hull and East Yorkshire house builder Beal Homes reports that many young people are now seeking to buy a home rather than rent, especially since the Government’s Help to Buy and NewBuy schemes became available.
Interest in new properties at Beal Homes’ The Village development, Kingswood Parks, a development designed with first movers in mind and where monthly mortgage payments are comparable with rental payments in the Hull and East Yorkshire area, is at a high, reports the family-run house builder.
First time buyer Lewis Fowler moved into his new FirstStep home at The Village in July. Lewis had been living with his Mum and Dad in Hull, but was keen to have a place of his own. “I wanted somewhere to settle down and, unlike renting, buying is an investment,” said Lewis.
“I had a good look round at what’s available and Beal’s FirstStep homes at The Village were good value with more included and more choice for your money,” explains Lewis, who is an electrical technician working in the off-shore industry.
The FirstStep Gramercy home design appealed to Lewis: “Off plan I was able to choose either an open plan layout or a separate kitchen and living room, which is what I prefer. It was great to have the choice. I spent a day at Beal’s Customer Selection Lounge where there is a really good selection to choose from. It was a good day with no pressure and I could take my time.”
Lewis took advantage of Beal Homes’ First Time Buyer package. “Beal’s First Time Buyer package provided five per cent towards my deposit and something towards the legal fees so it’s a good offer and I used the mortgage advisor Beal provides rather than have to find my own financial advisor. He was brilliant, really helpful and the sales executives at The Village were very helpful too. It was all really easy.”
Properties at The Village range from a smart one bedroom Soho at £84,995. Two bedroom designs include the well-appointed Gramercy starting at £117,995 and Tribeca from £122,995. A three bedroom Chelsea design is priced at £135,995. All homes at The Village come with Beal Homes’ trademark high specification, including many items often classed as extras by other builders.
