Applegate Properties on the ‘Help to Buy ISA’

3rd Oct, 2016

Applegate Properties know that buying your first home can be a daunting experience. Circumstances such as wages rising slower than house prices can make taking that first step onto the property ladder a real challenge.

However, there is help at hand. The government initiative, the 'Help to Buy ISA Scheme' can offer valuable help with saving for your house deposit. Under the scheme, the government helps first-time buyers by contributing 25% towards your savings. Therefore, for every £200 that you save, you will receive a government bonus of £50. The maximum government bonus you can receive is £3,000. This would bring a saving of £12,000 up to £15,000 allowing you to place a 10% deposit on a £150,000 home. With the average semi-detached home in Huddersfield being around £149,000 this can offer a great helping hand for first time buyers in the area.

Here at Applegate Properties we are always here to offer helpful, friendly advice on all things housing related. We are experts in getting the best deal for our customers and we can help you every step of the way when buying a house for the first time as we know this can be a stressful process that can sometimes feel overwhelming.
