Never a better time to buy at Duke's Rise


And it seems as though homeowners in Shepton Mallet are taking full advantage of the positive market conditions, with national housebuilder Bloor Homes celebrating sales at its Dukes Rise development.

Househunters in Somerset are therefore being encouraged to pay a visit to the development without delay, for their opportunity to secure one of the stunning two, three and four bedroom homes, currently available for £163,950 or £131,160 with  Help to Buy. 

Michele Rose, Sales Director for Bloor Homes South West region explains: “It is fantastic to see such renewed confidence returning to the housing market. First time buyers and second steppers alike have been taking advantage of an unprecedented set of circumstances including mortgage rates which remain at record lows, recent reforms to Stamp Duty thresholds as well as the continuation of the popular government scheme, Help to Buy. 

“The addition of the Help to Buy ISAs, announced in the latest Budget, can only strengthen the market further by providing additional support for first time buyers. We would therefore encourage anyone considering making the move, especially anyone previously stuck in a rental trap, to take advantage of the fantastic rates and support available to them now.” 

One such Bloor Homes customer who has already made the move from rented accommodation to their own home are Jasmine and Ben Hayne. 

Having been in rented accommodation for years the couple benefited from the government’s Help to Buy scheme to purchase their home, as Ellen explains: “We had wanted to be able to buy our own place for years and Help to Buy has meant we can achieve this much sooner than we thought possible.  

“We feel very lucky that as first time buyers we’ve been able to purchase such a beautiful home with ease.  The sales team were great and the process was really quick and straightforward, I would highly recommend it.” 

Duke’s Rise is ideally located within the attractive market town of Shepton Mallet, which offers a fantastic mix of shops, restaurants and cafes, as well as an abundance of cycle lanes connecting the numerous surrounding village greens. The development is also within easy reach of the M4 and M5 motorway networks making it perfectly placed for commuters.
