Help to Buy helps Clitheroe couple find their dream home

Sep. 28, 2018

A young Clitheroe couple are celebrating getting on to the property ladder with a foot-up from the Help to Buy Scheme.

Jouisse (28) and Nathan (32) knew they had found the perfect property for them after they saw the plans for the home that they went on to buy at Prospect Homes Rose Gardens development.

Jouisse said “We weren’t house hunting for very long at all. We spent around a month looking into different new build developments around Clitheroe before visiting Prospect Homes, and once we saw the plans for our house we just knew that that was the one!

“Rose Gardens had everything we were looking for and more compared to other new build sites around Clitheroe.

“We bought using government Help to Buy, a fantastic scheme to help first time buyers get on the property ladder. Stephanie from Prospect has been great and has seen us through the entire process from reserving to completion.”

The Help to Buy scheme allowed Jouisse and Nathan to purchase their home with a five per cent deposit and a 75 per cent mortgage.

“Life in our new home is fantastic! We are settling in nicely and can’t wait to see the rest of the houses around us built and lived in.”

Prospect Homes are building 80 new homes at Rose Gardens in Clitheroe, with another new development at Greenfields, Clitheroe coming soon.
