Home hunters are realising the benefits of buying brand new homes off-plan in Saffron Walden, according to Bloor Homes.

With the first phase of homes just released to the market at superior development Mortimers Gate, many buyers have been reserving their dream property early, and taking the opportunity to have a say in the design features, fixtures and fittings.

The stunning collection of two to four-bedroom homes is set in an idyllic location in the north-west Essex town of Saffron Walden.

Monika Hanlon, Regional Sales Director for Bloor Homes Eastern, said: “Mortimers Gate has generated a lot of interest since its sales launch on Saturday 29th July due to the quality of the build and the desirable setting, so many buyers are seizing the opportunity to purchase their new home off-plan.

“We would encourage potential buyers to visit the sales information centre at Mortimers Gate and speak to one of our advisors who can spend time discussing the possibilities of buying off-plan in more detail.”

Three and four-bedroom homes are available on the current phase at Mortimers Gate development, all available with Help to Buy and Home Exchange schemes. 
Help to Buy is potentially available to all types of purchaser, not just first-time buyers.

Buyers can secure their new-build with a minimum 5% deposit to qualify.  The government will lend between 10% and 20% of the value of the property.  This means the buyer will only need to secure up to a 75% mortgage from a bank or building society.  

Additionally, Bloor Homes offers the Home Exchange Scheme giving potential buyers the chance to purchase a wonderful new home whilst relieving some of the stress associated with selling their existing property.  

For those who choose the Scheme, Bloor could make an offer on the buyer’s current property and if it’s accepted, a Bloor home can be reserved, subject to contract, a satisfactory survey and a viewing of the property. The housebuilder will then help ensure the process is as smooth and straightforward as possible.
