A new Bloor home at Hereford Point ticks every box for first time buyers

Excellent build quality, a superb location and great customer service made Hereford Point the perfect choice for first time buyers Annie Baines and Tom Powell.

Annie, a deputy supervisor at Whitecross day nursery, and Tom, a site manager for an engineering company, were the first buyers at the Hereford Point development after purchasing a three bedroom semi detached Studland house type.

The couple, who are now settled in their new home, were able to secure their dream property with just a five per cent deposit and 75 per cent mortgage using the Help to Buy equity loan scheme.

Annie, 30, said: “Location was very important for us and that’s what attracted us originally to Hereford Point. The development is perfectly positioned on the side of Hereford that we really like.

“We always wanted to buy a new build property, but we didn’t expect it to be so soon. It has been a really busy time for us as we are in the middle of planning a wedding too. 

“Tom and I were previously renting a three bedroom detached house just two miles away and using the Help to Buy scheme helped us a great deal to get the property we really wanted. We also used Bloor’s recommended mortgage advisors and they were first class, helping us to decide what was best for us and our current situation. The whole process was very informative and easy, they did all the hard work.”

Discussing the house layout, Annie added: “I spend a lot of my free time cooking and baking, so the kitchen was always going to be my favourite room of the house. I really like the open plan layout and what was even better was that I got the opportunity to upgrade the kitchen to look exactly how I like it.”

Commenting on the buying experience, Miss Baines explained: “The Sales Team was very helpful and supportive from the start, making our experience hassle free. There was always lots of advice on hand to help us secure the plot we set our hearts on. 

“We would definitely recommend Bloor Homes. Our home is finished to a high standard and we are very pleased with the overall process. You hear lots of horror stories about new build properties, but I am pleased to report that our experience has been a dream.”
