All the boxes were ticked for Rebecca Summers and Adam Inman when they found their dream Warwickshire house at Bovis Homes' Bidford Leys location.
Looking for a brand-new property, Rebecca and Adam found their perfectly designed four-bed home before they had even decided on the right location.
“We saw this Bovis Home design featured in a video and just fell in love with it,” says Rebecca. “It was amazing – exactly what we were looking for.”
The couple put their home in Bromsgrove on the market and while they were waiting for it to sell looked around numerous new-build developments. With their heart set on the open-plan, spacious design they saw in the video, they were keen to buy a Bovis Home.
“We looked at Bovis Homes' Kidderminster and Redditch locations, but Bidford-on-Avon is just perfect for us,” says Rebecca, an administrator for the NHS. “My husband is an investments performance and risk manager in Stratford, so he's now only got a short drive for work.
“This home has a fantastic layout. It's got four bedrooms, so we're set up for the future, and we love the open-plan kitchen area. We've even turned the study into a room for Gilbert, our little Ragdoll cat – he loves it!”
The couple took advantage of Help to Buy which is exclusive to new-build homes and available to both first-time buyers and existing home owners. With the Government providing an equity loan of up to 20% of the value of the property, buyers need a 5% deposit and can secure a mortgage of up to 75%, opening doors to more competitive lending rates.
“From start to finish, the sales advisors Nicola and Claire were amazing,” says Rebecca. “They guided us through every step and the service was outstanding. With their personal touch, we feel like we've also made some friends along the way too. We had a fantastic experience buying our home. The build team were so, so helpful and everyone is so friendly!
“They say moving house is one of the most stressful things you can do in your life, but the sales and build teams made sure the entire process ran smoothly. They made buying our dream home the amazing experience it should be!
“We love our new home and we are very happy.”
