New Year, New Home – Moving Masterclass for Buckinghamshire House Buyers

A Typical St Rumbold’s Fields Street Scene

The New Year is a great time to start thinking about moving house and Barratt and David Wilson Homes is making it easier than ever by hosting a moving masterclass at its Buckinghamshire developments this weekend.

The housebuilder is inviting keen house hunters to come along to its local developments on Saturday 18th January where there will be Sales Advisers and independent Mortgage Advisors on hand to answer questions and offer expert advice on how to make moving home as easy as ABC.

Karly Williams, Sales Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes North Thames, said: “The moving masterclass will be a brilliant opportunity for those who are thinking about buying a home with us to get all of those niggling questions answered.

“The advice offered by our experts will be second-to-none and will give potential buyers the confidence to take the next steps in the buying process with confidence.”

Barratt and David Wilson Homes has created a useful breakdown of how the two most popular schemes currently available work:


Part Exchange

Moving house can be a stressful time for everyone, especially if you need to sell your old home before you can move into your new one. Barratt and David Wilson Homes has recognised this and is offering home owners the option to Part Exchange their old property for a new home at one of its developments

Once you find a new home at one of their developments, Barratt and David Wilson Homes will set up two independent valuations if you have a home to sell. If you’re happy with the offer, you can sit back and relax while Barratt and David Wilson Homes put your home on the market for you. Furthermore, you can stay in your current home until your new one is ready to move in to.


Help to Buy

The scheme enables anyone, both first time buyers and existing owners, to put down just five per cent as a deposit for their new home and to take advantage of a government equity loan providing access to more affordable mortgage rates.

Help to Buy allows any homebuyer to secure a brand new home under the value of £600,000 with just a five per cent deposit. The government lends the buyer 20 per cent of the value of the property in the form of an interest free equity loan for five years, meaning that buyers then gain access to some of the great mortgage rates currently available with just a 75 per cent mortgage.
