Families and downsizers have been snapping up properties at a new-build location in Cheshire thanks to some special purchase schemes.

Buyers attracted to the rural feel of Bovis Homes’ Saxon Lea location in Sandbach, have been using the housebuilder’s Home Exchange package, allowing them to part-exchange their property to move into a brand-new home.

Home-hunters can also use purchasing schemes Smooth Move, also popular at the location, and Help to Buy – Equity Loan, to aid their move.

Claire Blatchford, Bovis Homes sales advisor at Saxon Lea, said: “We have had a huge amount of families and downsizers at the location who are impressed with the setting and the purchasing options we have here.

“Saxon Lea is more rural than other locations nearby. It’s by the canal, with a lot of open space and it’s close to the M6 for families who need to commute. Home Exchange is very popular at Saxon Lea as is Smooth Move.”

There is now just one of the popular four-bedroom Middleton house types left to buy at Saxon Lea.

The home, which is on a corner plot, overlooks the Trent and Mersey Canal and is close to Sandbach town centre and good schools. The property boasts two en suites, an open-plan kitchen and dining area, plus French doors leading to a large garden.

A total of seven new plots have been released at the development, which has three, four and five-bedroom homes available to buy.

Louise Macrae, regional marketing manager at Bovis Homes, said: “We have some wonderful properties, including the Middleton, at Saxon Lea, for downsizers, families and first-time buyers.

“There are some brilliant purchasing schemes to choose from to save time and stress. Come and visit the location to see its charm and rural feel and see how we can help you move!”

With Home Exchange, Bovis Homes will purchase the mover's current property, meaning they avoid estate agents fees and the stresses of property chains.

Those using Smooth Move get support from Bovis Homes throughout the process, with the housebuilder working to find movers the right buyer and paying estate agent fees.

With the Help to Buy - Equity Loan scheme, home buyers need just a five per cent cash deposit, with the Government providing an equity loan of up to 20 per cent. They then need to secure up to a 75 per cent mortgage, which opens the door to more competitive lending rates.
