Britain’s housebuilders giving a helping hand to Staffs first-time buyers
First-time buyers have been a hot topic in the property pages for some time now. Last year, the Government launched FirstBuy, a shared equity scheme designed to help give them a leg-up onto the property ladder at new homes developments around England.
At the end of 2011, the Government announced a new scheme to underwrite 95% mortgages, to help new homes buyers struggling to save a large mortgage. And at the end of March, the “Stamp Duty holiday” for first-time buyers comes to an end, with a surge of activity expected before the deadline comes.
The new homes industry has been at the forefront of the help being offered to first-time buyers, and homebuyers in Staffordshire are no exceptions when it comes to benefitting from the assistance that housebuilders are offering those who aspire to a home of their own. Once considered a luxury option, a new-build is, in many ways, the perfect first choice for first-time buyers.

Lovell’s Weston Heights development on the outskirts of Stoke-on-Trent won a Bronze at the What House? Awards 2011, for its success in regenerating an old mining community with a selection of brand new, contemporary-designed homes ideal for young buyers and families. Thanks to a shared equity scheme, where buyers pay just 85% of the full price up-front, a two-bedroom semi-detached home costs from just £101,957 here.
Ben Bailey Homes is offering one- and two-bedroom apartments in the City Waterside regeneration area in Stoke at The Works at Johnson Wharf, with some newly discounted homes costing from just £85,000. There is the option of FirstBuy on some plots, which will reduced the up-front funding needed to secure one of these conversion properties.
Close to the heart of Stafford is St George’s Park, where Bovis Homes has a huge range of properties from starter homes to luxury family houses. The ‘Turner’ coach house is a two-bedroom property above an integral garage, priced from £129,995. Bovis Homes offers a range of assistance schemes to help first-time buyers, including a 10%-deposit mortgage scheme and shared equity option on selected plots.
