Kerry and Adam find their forever home with Help to Buy
Ahead of their wedding next year Residential Liaison Manager Kerry Higson and her Dental Technician partner Adam moved into their first home together at the end of May. The outgoing couple of 27 year olds were bot previously living separately with family while they slowly saved a deposit. Kerry said “having our individuality is the best part about our new home, having our space, somewhere that is ours”
After starting their house search they were told about the Help to Buy scheme by both their developer McDermotts and their financial advisor. Now knowing the scheme was available they quickly found their dream home. Kerry told us “we hadn’t been looking for a new home for that long, and when we were told about Help to Buy it made the search even quicker. Help to Buy has assisted us to buy our forever home, a house we thought would be out of reach for us.”
There are a lot of misconceptions that using the Help to Buy scheme is a long, tricky process and makes buying a house even longer. We asked Kerry about this, “We found it very straight forward and we had help from both McDermotts and our financial advisor, we didn’t even have to speak with Help to Buy North West at any point as our financial advisor sorted it for us. We didn’t find the process stressful at all.” She continued “we would definitely recommend the Help to Buy Scheme; in fact we already have to some friends”.
