We catch up with Sam and Jess, who used the Key Workers Scheme to allow them to move into their dream home in Kingsbury Park, Lutterworth…
With Sam David (21) a police officer from Leicester living with his parents in Lutterworth and Jessica May (20) based in Daventry with hers, settling close to both families was essential for the couple. Whilst driving around, Sam and Jessica noticed the Help to Buy logo on our Kingsbury Park sign and were instantly drawn to the development.
On visiting our show home, the couple’s desire to become Mulberry homeowners was confirmed and, after talking through their situation with our Sales Advisor Sally, they took their first step onto the property ladder by reserving their two bedroom Stanton home there and then.
Sam, who works as a police officer in Warwickshire, explained: “We’d spoken to a few housebuilders and we found Mulberry a lot more understanding than others, with none of the pushiness we’d experienced previously. The Sales Advisors realised it would take us a while to save for our deposit and were very accommodating.
“The Stanton was the ideal fit for us as first-time homeowners. In addition to its size, we especially liked the bay window and the adjacent parking spaces.”
The couple had been saving for their first home together with the aid of a Lifetime ISA. Sam’s job as a police offer additionally made the couple eligible for our bespoke Key Workers Scheme, which offers £500 for every £20,000 spent on one of our homes. These contributions can be made towards a flooring package, a specification upgrade, or legal, survey or mortgage broker fees, or stamp duty.
Sam added: “We’d known for a while that Help to Buy would make a huge difference by allowing us to buy our home with just a 5% deposit, but we hadn’t heard of Mulberry’s Key Workers Scheme until the Sales Advisors explained its advantages. The practical support of the scheme is helping to make owning our own home a reality far sooner than we’d hoped to imagine.”
Sam concluded: “We still can’t believe the difference the Key Workers Scheme has made financially and we’d definitely encourage those who are eligible to check it out. We would absolutely recommend Mulberry Homes to anyone starting out in homeownership.”
