Jargon-busting advice for first time buyers

24 June 2012

First time buyers were helped to find their way onto the property ladder at a special one-day event in Telford

First time buyers were offered jargon-busting advice as Persimmon Homes hosted a first timers’ open day at its Coppice Grove development at Ironstone on Saturday January 28.

The event took place at the new Persimmon sales office, off Lawley Drive, and brought together independent mortgage advisors and the house builders’ sales teams to offer information about schemes available to help people get the keys to their first home.

Claire Jarvis, sales director for Persimmon Homes West Midlands, said: “These events are a great way for visitors to chat face to face with the various experts about their individual concerns, such as how they can benefit from the government’s FirstBuy scheme, in a relaxed and informal way.

“Our advice day also marked the launch of FirstBuy at Persimmon’s Coppice Grove site – the first time we have been able to offer this assistance to first time buyers at Ironstone.”

FirstBuy is the government equity loan scheme which aims to help first time buyers with smaller mortgage deposits.

Persimmon has been awarded the largest FirstBuy allocation of any housebuilder, meaning the company has a wide choice available to buyers at several of its West Midlands locations.

At Coppice Grove, Persimmon offers two, three, four and five bedroom homes, with prices starting at just £154,950. Designs include the three bedroom semi-detached ‘Alder’ with en suite bathroom and single garage, and the four bedroom detached ‘Maple’, which boasts a study and a Juliette balcony to the master bedroom.

Coppice Grove is part of Lawley Village, Telford’s premier new homes development. Located just two miles west of Telford town centre, it is currently the largest sustainable urban residential development of its kind in the UK, providing 3,500 homes, alongside new health, education, retail and leisure facilities.

The project represents a visionary approach to new home building, placing a greater emphasis on design and sustainability. The result is a new community with a clear character and a strong sense of place.
