(PRWEB) January 20, 2008
Housebuilder George Wimpey has launched four great deals to help people looking to buy a new home in the New Year.
Customers who visit any of George Wimpey's information centres during January can take advantage of the New Year deals and get both practical and financial help from George Wimpey's experienced team.
First time buyers looking to get onto the property ladder during January will be entitled to the 'Move in for £99' scheme*. The scheme relieves first time buyers of all the daunting costs associated with buying a home and means that customers pay nothing more than a £99 reservation charge until the day they move in. George Wimpey covers the cost of 5% deposit, stamp duty and £500 legal fees - saving the customer thousands of pounds.
George Wimpey customers can also benefit from the 'Easymover' scheme*. This means George Wimpey will sell the homebuyers' property and pay all the costs associated with the move.
The scheme brings an excellent prospect to purchasers at this time of year. Not only does the Easymover scheme ease the costs associated with buying a house, including stamp duty and legal costs, more importantly, the company will pack up all of the homebuyers' belongings and pay for a removal company to transport everything for them.
George Wimpey is also offering buyers the chance to have half of their interest only mortgage paid for two years when they reserve one of its properties during January. The 'Half Price Mortgage'* incentive means that homeowners will get 24 direct monthly payments from George Wimpey to help them with their purchase.
Investors can also benefit from George Wimpey's New Year deals with the housebuilder offering guaranteed income on rented properties. Giving investors the security of pre confirmed rent, the 'Rental Guarantee'* scheme is open to all investors. The scheme guarantees rental income for one year, reassuring everyone from seasoned investors to first timers.
Speaking at the launch, Kevin Belsham, national sales and marketing director, said: "No matter what the situation, whether buying a first home or upsizing, we understand the financial pressures of moving house, particularly following recent interest rate rises.
"The first couple of years can often put the biggest strain on purchasers' finances and with these schemes, George Wimpey can make a considerable difference, freeing up customers' hard earned income for other uses, which is something that can't often be done when buying a new home."
