First time offers help move buyers over the finishing line

As the Scottish property market welcomes a rise in first time buyers securing a mortgage, Kier Homes has released a number of value-led properties at its Glasgow development providing the opportunity to buy a first time house rather than an apartment.

Within walking distance of a number of the Commonwealth Games venues including the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, Belvidere Village is located on London Road and is a typical Kier flagship development offering a variety of house styles.

Perfect for first time buyers looking for their own garden, Belvidere Village offers a choice of two bedroom mid terrace and three bedroom end terrace homes.

The Craigstoun features a wc, living room and open plan kitchen/dining room with French doors leading to the garden on the ground floor.  The bedrooms are located on the upper floor along with the main bathroom.  The Craigstoun is priced from only £117,995.   However, Kier Homes is currently offering first time buyers Shared Equity and MI New Home on selected properties including the Craigstoun.

The Shared Equity Scheme enables the buyer to defer up to 20% of the purchase price for ten years or until the property is sold.  Under the Government’s guaranteed MI New Home initiative the buyer can secure a 95% mortgage with only a 5% deposit required.   In addition, Kier Homes has secured an initiative with the Glasgow Credit Union offering first time buyers access to 100% mortgage deals, subject to certain criteria.

Carole Donaldson, Regional Sales & Marketing Manager, Kier Homes said, “It’s certainly encouraging to see an increase in the mortgage availability for first time buyers and it’s key that we support this drive however we can.

“We find that many first time buyers would love to have their own garden and our terrace properties offer great value compared with some apartments.

“With all the buzz recently about the Commonwealth Games ticket sales there’s been a great excitement in the area and it’s fantastic to see all the venues coming to life.

“Belvidere Village is a great location to soak up the atmosphere and residents here will undoubtedly benefit from the investment in the local community.”

In addition to the first time buyer properties, Belvidere Village also offers a number of three bedroom semi-detached properties, priced from £131,995 and four bedroom detached homes from only £199,995.

There are two showhomes available to view at Belvidere Village, the Strathaven and the Dunvagen, which are open daily from 10.00am until 5.00pm.
