FIRST TIME BUYERS : With its lively social scene and showstopping entertainment on offer in the UK, it is no surprise that house prices in the Capital have risen drastically in recent years, with the dream of London living seemingly out of reach for many. But first-time buyers in search of a slick apartment need not think that buying in the Capital is unattainable. At Shanly Homes’ impressive North London development, Hillgrove House in Edgware, every property is available to purchase with the London Help to Buy scheme, challenging the average property prices in North West London at a staggering £730,523 – with starting prices at Hillgrove House from just £499,950[1]. With 5% deposits from as little as £24,997 using London Help to Buy and the additional current stamp duty holiday, Hillgrove House is an excellent choice for young home hunters keen to secure a stylish city pad for less.

Those looking to step onto the property ladder into a luxurious and spacious new home that brings with it a desirable London location for less can do so with the excellent offering of the Help to Buy scheme at Hillgrove House.

Martin Brown, Sales Manager at Shanly Homes, comments: “We are pleased to be able to help home hunters take their first steps onto the property ladder with the Government’s new Help to Buy scheme.
