From renting to owning a brand new 3 bedroom home!

Callum

We vistied Callum, who recently bought his first home with Help to Buy.

Originally from Wiltshire, Callum moved to Bradford 18 months ago for work. After over a year of house sharing, he decided it was time to think about buying his first home.

"I decided I needed somewhere for myself, and after using the Help to Buy ISA to save a deposit, I knew I could use the Help to Buy scheme to buy a home."

After deciding Leeds would be the place he wanted to live, the search began!

"I searched online for a suitable house, and I finally found this one! It's a three bedroom new build and it's perfect for me."

As Help to Buy was available on his dream home, it was meant to be.

"I was first introduced to Help to Buy by my family, and when I decided I wanted to use the scheme to buy my first home, I had a look on the website to find out some more information. The scheme is easy to get your head around, and a great way for a first time buyer to be able to afford a new build home without a huge deposit!'

"As a young first time buyer, Help to Buy enabled me to step on the property ladder. I think its a really good scheme, I don't know why anyone wouldn't use it! I had a great experience with Help to Buy and would recommend
 it to anyone wanting to buy a new home with a low deposit."
