First-time buyers secure dream home where they met.

Josh and Catherine

We went to visit Josh and Catherine from York to ask them about their experience with Help to Buy.


We arrived at The Lancaster Muse an exclusive Redrow development and we were welcomed into the beautiful Belgrave house style, a 3 bedroom end-terrace. Where we talked through Josh and Catherine’s home buying experience.

Josh and Catherine who met in York, described how their home buying process began.

 “We found saving for a home a challenge whilst renting within the city centre.”

They explained how they came across the Help to Buy scheme.

“One of our friends explained how they found buying a home with Help to Buy and through further research into the scheme we opened a Help to Buy Isa to start our home buying journey.”

After hearing about the scheme the couple decided a new build property would be the best option for them.

“After looking at new developments in the surrounding area of York, we found our dream home on this Redrow development in an ideal location with only a short commute for both of us for work.”

When asked about their experience of the Help to Buy process.

“From start to finish we had no complications and are delighted by how stress-free the process was. Help to Buy helped us buy where we wanted to buy.”

With Help to Buy, Josh and Catherine were able to step on to the property ladder with just a 5% deposit.
