Buying in London as a First Time Buyer with #HomesComfort

Posted 27/03/2024

Owning a home in London, a city filled with history, culture, and endless opportunities, has long been a dream for many. However, being a first-time buyer in London can be both an exciting and daunting experience. The city's housing market is diverse, offering everything from modern apartments in high-rise buildings to traditional Victorian terraces, but the steep prices and competitive nature of the market can make the process quite challenging, even if it isn’t your first rodeo.

Particularly for first-time buyers, the challenge of saving a substantial deposit often places this dream out of reach. Recognising these hurdles, Higgins Homes has introduced the #HomesComfort campaign, offering hope for those aspiring to own a piece of London's vibrant landscape.

How #HomesComfort Can Help

At the heart of the #HomesComfort initiative is a thoughfuul response to the financial barriers that stand in the way of home ownership. For many, the biggest hurdle is saving for a sizeable deposit. Higgins Homes has taken proactive steps to ease this burden by offering a 5% deposit top-up, potentially increasing the deposit from 10% to 15%. This move significantly reduces the initial financial outlay, making home ownership more attainable for many prospective buyers.

But the support doesn't stop there. Higgins Homes understands that the costs associated with purchasing a property extend beyond the deposit. Legal fees and stamp duty can quickly add up to substantial amounts. Through #HomesComfort, buyers have the opportunity to have these expenses covered, providing further relief and financial flexibility.

A Home Buying Initiative that is Centred Around You

Every aspiring homeowner is unique, with different financial circumstances and lifestyle preferences. That’s why Higgins Homes offers a bespoke approach to each buyer and empowers them to engage directly with their Sales Executives to tailor a solution that best suits their specific situation.

Whether it's the financial boost of a deposit top-up or the peace of mind of having legal fees and stamp duty covered, #HomesComfort ensures that buyers can choose the option that aligns with their goals and needs. This personalised approach not only makes home ownership more accessible but also empowers buyers to take control of their financial future.

More than just a Financial Initiative

The incentives offered through #HomesComfort extend beyond the financial realm. Higgins Homes recognises that owning a home involves more than just paying for the property. The campaign includes offerings such as covering childcare expenses for six months and providing upfront payment for travel cards. These thoughtful gestures not only ease the financial burden but also contribute to a more stable and secure future for buyers.

One of the standout features of the #HomesComfort initiative is the inclusion of a Furniture Pack option in partnership with the renowned brand BoConcept. The Furniture Pack offers a curated selection of Danish-inspired furniture, accessories, and lighting, designed to bring style and comfort to modern living spaces. Buyers can choose from a range of packages, guided by interior designers who make the process seamless and effortless. The collaboration with BoConcept underscores Higgins Homes' commitment to providing not just houses, but dream homes that are ready to be lived in and enjoyed from day one.

The #HomesComfort initiative is about more than just buying a property; it's about opening doors to a brighter future at a time when getting a foot on the London property ladder is harder than ever. By widening the accessibility of home ownership, Higgins Homes is enabling individuals and families to secure high-quality homes that offer stability, autonomy, and an enhanced sense of well-being.

For those dreaming of owning a home in London, with Higgins Homes as a partner, that dream is closer than ever before. Our Home Comforts incentive is available at both our Ecole development in vibrant Bermondsey and The Garratt Collection in the charming borough of Wandsworth.
