Housing Couple Become Home Buyers

Keen to get on the property ladder and armed with a good knowledge of the housing industry, Jade Olds and her husband John knew just the place to start their search.

Working as a sales advisor at Bovis Homes’ High View location in Paulton, Jade knew better than anyone else that this would be the perfect place for her family to live, and she didn’t need to worry about persuading her husband, as he had worked there too!

“We wanted to buy a new build property as we liked the idea that it would be our very own home from the beginning,” says Jade. “We were renting just down the road and I knew High View would be the ideal place for us to buy our first house. John used to be the site manager and I work in the sales office, so we know all about the location and the homes here.”

The couple selected the four-bedroom Buxton and used the government’s Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme.

“The Help to Buy scheme was great! We used the recommended financial advisor who made the process so quick and easy,” says Jade. “It took all the hassle away from trying to do it ourselves! He found us a great rate with a well-known top lender, which we were not expecting!”

Jade and John moved into their new home earlier this year with their four-year-old, Eva and dog, Dolly.

“We really like the open-plan living room/diner, which was great over the summer as we were able to open up the patio doors until very late into the evenings. I love all the space in the house and absolutely adore our kitchen, which we got to choose ourselves along with the bathroom tiling. It’s so nice to have everything so new and fresh,” adds Jade, who now has an extra insight into purchasing a Bovis Home at High View that she can share with potential buyers.

“It was very interesting seeing the process from a customer’s point of view! I really enjoyed the whole thing and it was all very exciting!” says Jade. “I love my job. It’s so nice to meet people from the very beginning and follow them on their home buying journey and then have the pleasure of handing over the keys to them! And another benefit – it only takes me two minutes to get to work in the morning now!”
