First Time Buyers To Get Boost For The New Year With Stewart Milne Homes


Following the success of its previous First Time Buyer Plan, Stewart Milne Homes is kicking off the New Year with a new affordable solution to help more buyers onto the property ladder in 2011.

Available with a wide variety of two, three and four bedroom homes across Scotland, the new First Time Buyer Plan offers a 90 percent mortgage, no stamp duty on selected properties and mortgage protection insurance. The plan also includes carpets, curtains, a home cinema system and a choice of furniture for a stylish start as a homeowner. Buyers also benefit from a deferred payment mortgage, which significantly reduces monthly repayments and can make buying a home a more affordable option than renting.

John Slater, Stewart Milne Group managing director – Homes, comments:

“As a company, we are constantly monitoring buyer needs and tailoring our purchase plans accordingly to ensure we are providing the most practical and effective solutions available.

“Our original First Time Buyer Plan proved an outstanding success, and we remain committed to ensuring homeownership remains an affordable option. Our new plan is specifically designed to help customers secure a manageable mortgage and alleviate some of the costs of buying, and moving into, a first home.

“With monthly mortgage repayments of as little as £368, we are confident our new First Time Buyer product will prove equally effective.”

Based on the new plan, a two bedroom property at Morningside Gardens in Wishaw, priced at £125,000, can currently be purchased with a mortgage of £93,750 and monthly repayments of £368. Meanwhile, a two bedroom apartment at Athena Grange in Prestonpans, costing £153,000, can currently be purchased with a mortgage of £122,400 with monthly repayments of around £450.

The First Time Buyer Plan also includes mortgage protection insurance and no stamp duty on properties under £250,000. In addition, the package ensures buyers can move straight into their new home with furniture for the living room, master and guest bedrooms; a plasma TV with home cinema system; carpets; curtains; light fittings and a fully fitted kitchen.
