Help to Buy Wales scheme enables couple to secure their dream home in Blackwood

With the ambition to get themselves on the property ladder and find their perfect first home, Aoife and Carl began looking at houses close to their friends and family in the local countryside.

The couple looked at a number of properties including Victorian-style homes and second-hand new builds but it became very apparent for the couple that the houses were either not structurally suitable or they would quickly outgrow them within a few years.

Aoife and Carl were left feeling deflated until they were informed of Llanmoor’s Hawtin Meadows development in Blackwood back in July 2019.

“After work, I dragged Carl out of the house to view The Ferndale showhome – this was the first showhome that piqued my interest.

“We maintained contact to show we were interested and Sue also offered to show us the other house types available. The more I spoke to her, the more I realised our requirements. We needed double parking side by side, a separate utility room, a social kitchen/diner space, and a 4th bedroom for expansion and Irish family visits – hence why we settled for the Bonvilston!”

The couple had originally saved their 15% deposit with no intention to use the Help to Buy scheme, but when Covid hit, the property market was impacted and circumstances led them to re-evaluate this decision. 

“I was expecting to jump through hoops for my mortgage but it was effortless using the Mortgage Advisor, Mike, recommended by Llanmoor.”

Commenting on their relationship with the sales team, Aoife said: “Sue and Lily have been most helpful and I have made good friendships with them both. They spent so much time accommodating my changes and add ons to the house – I can’t fault them!”

Aoife and Carl have purchased a 4 bedroom home together
