Fairview New Homes welcomes its first residents at Hertfordshire scheme
Posted 24 February 2016 by Keith Osborne
With work well under way on 110 new homes at the Royston scheme, the first residents are already moving into their properties at Fairview New Homes’ Affinity development.
Among the very first were Stuart and Emma Hunter and their family, who used Help to Buy to get onto the property ladder from their rental home close to Royston. Having taken their keys in November, the family are well and truly at home in their new three-bedroom ‘Nutmeg’ townhouse.
Stuart says: “We wanted to live in Royston and our preference was always for a new build, so we kept an eye on the developments which were coming up. We waited for work to start at Affinity as we wanted to find the right house, and the townhouse which we chose was just what we were looking for. It felt like home as soon as we moved in.”
With Help to Buy, the couple needed just 5% of the price as a deposit and benefitted from a government equity loan of 20%, leaving them to find a competitive mortgage of just 75%.
Stuart adds: “Help to Buy was really quite straightforward and we found buying using the scheme to be easy.”
Jim Holliday, sales and marketing director for Fairview, says: “It’s great to see building work on some of the homes at Affinity completed and people moving in, and I wish all of our new residents all the best in their new homes. We look forward to pressing on with our build programme and seeing Affinity grow.”
There are currently several three- and four-bedroom homes available at Affinity, priced from £324,995.
