Time to Say Goodbye to Generation Rent

Time to Say Goodbye to Generation Rent

It is easier than ever for first time buyers to purchase a stylish Walker Group home at Meadowcroft in Falkirk.

The terraced Glenelg, priced at £165,000, is eligible for the Scottish Government’s Help To Buy scheme, which means clients only need to provide a 5% deposit to secure a new home with the Scottish Government providing a 15% equity stake. 

Buyers need to find a deposit of just £8,250 to purchase this stylish home, which features a generous lounge with patio doors to the garden, kitchen to the front of the property and a downstairs cloakroom. Upstairs are three bedrooms and a family bathroom. 

The property also comes complete with flooring throughout, so buyers save on the expense of laying expensive carpets and tiles.  

Sandy Casey, Director of Walker Group, said: “First time buyers don’t have to resign themselves to being part of generation rent any longer there are lots of options now to make payments more affordable - from Help To Buy to 35 year mortgages which are increasing in popularity. 

“Mortgage lenders are becoming increasingly inventive with the products on offer with Nationwide now raising the mortgage borrowing age limit to 85.”  

Other properties available with HTB include the three bedroom detached Belmont, which is available from £217,000.  A great family home, this property has a large lounge, and kitchen with dining area, utility downstairs cloakroom and integral single garage. Upstairs are three bedrooms with the master with an ensuite and a family bathroom.
 
A development of three, four and five bedroom homes, Meadowcroft benefits from a leafy location which is close to the developer’s sell-out developments at Carronbank and Daylesford.

In total 86 new homes are being built at Meadowcroft, featuring a choice of 11 different house types from three to five bedrooms with prices starting from £165,000.  
                                                                                                 
All of the houses offer high quality finishes and fittings, including stylish and practical kitchens and bathrooms, along with high-efficiency heating systems and appliances to help ease carbon footprint concerns.  

Meadowcroft is the company’s fifth development in the area and represents a major investment for the Livingston headquartered and Scottish-owned Group. 

The new homes feature high specification fixtures and fittings such as oak internal doors and turfed front gardens as standard. 

The surrounding area offers renowned attractions such Stirling Castle, the Wallace Monument and the Falkirk Wheel, as well as superb local amenities for shopping, sport and leisure.  

Excellent road and transport links allow easy access to all of central Scotland, whilst the thriving town of Falkirk is home to several top restaurants, bars and high street stores.
                                                                                                
Families are well catered for locally, with a number of respected schools in the area and Falkirk College providing excellent educational facilities.
