First time buyer success story seen in the Metro
With Great Britain storming up the medal charts at the Rio Olympics, it seems as if the whole of England is celebrating. This is particularly true for Alex Garguilo, 20, and Hannah Sanders, 21, who must have felt like they have won gold; getting engaged and securing their first home.
Not only did they get engaged in January but, with support from the Help to Buy scheme and Hannah’s parents, they’ve also bought a fabulous new one-bedroom apartment at Prime Place, Godalming, in the heart of the town.
Here at PHM we’re also celebrating as our write-up on their lovely story featured in this week’s Metro’s Property supplement. Journalist Andrea Dean featured the story in the ‘First-time Buyer’ section, where Alex and Hannah spoke about how fantastic Prime Place was in helping them secure their new home.
Alex and Hannah both studied at Godalming College so know the town well and already enjoy its great facilities and semi-rural setting. After driving past Prime Place, Godalming, a number of times and seeing that the show apartment had opened, they decided to stop in and find out more. Keen to settle down in their own home before they marry next year, to them it seemed the perfect choice.
Alex said: “This was the first and only development we looked at – it’s exactly what we needed. We love the central location and the specification of the apartments is great.
“When Help to Buy was explained to us, it quickly became obvious that this was our best route. Without Help to Buy we would have struggled to buy our first home. Our apartment is brilliant – we couldn’t be more thrilled.”
For more information, contact Hamptons International on 01483 351933. Help to Buy is available on all the apartments and on townhouses priced less than £600,000; and is not limited to first-time buyers. Part Exchange is also available for second buyers.
Currently available at Prime Place, Godalming are one, two and three-bedroom apartments starting from £277,995 and three and four-bedroom townhouses starting from £574,995.
