NEW builds in Tunbridge Wells will be among those on offer when Berkeley Homes holds a Help to Buy Open Weekend this coming Saturday, January 12, at its Holborough Lakes development near Snodland.
The scheme is open to everyone purchasing a home of up to £600,000, not just first-time buyers.
The event will give buyers an opportunity to secure one of the remaining new build homes across a selection of the developer’s local portfolio – Royal Wells Park in Tunbridge Wells, Ryewood in Sevenoaks, and Holborough Lakes itself in the heart of Kent – with assistance from the government’s Help to Buy scheme.
The current selection of 49 homes consists of 16 houses at Holborough Lakes, nine apartments at Ryewood plus 23 apartments and one house at Royal Wells Park.
The scheme assists buyers to purchase with just a 5% deposit, and allows for an equity loan of up to 20% from the government, which is interest free for the first five years.
At the event, buyers will have the opportunity to purchase a new home at prices starting from £295,000 for a one-bedroom apartment at Ryewood, £315,000 for a two-bedroom apartment and £385,000 for a three-bedroom house at Holborough Lakes, £335,000 for a two-bedroom apartment and £600,000 for three-bedroom house at Royal Wells Park.
Expert advice will be available from an Independent Financial Advisor to help home seekers understand how the Help to Buy scheme could assist them in purchasing one of these new homes.
Karina Oki, Sales and Marketing Director at Berkeley Eastern Counties, said: “We’re excited to offer a wide selection of Help to Buy homes across our Kent developments. Our portfolio showcases a great variety of options, from those looking for their first home to those looking at a larger property for a family.
“We’re looking forward to meeting interested buyers at the event this coming weekend.”
