Cruden Offers ‘One Stop Shop New Home Event’ for First Time Buyers

October 25, 2016 Young adults moving in new home

Cruden Homes is hosting a special ‘one stop shop new home event’ aimed at first time buyers, to offer them all the help and advice they need to step on to the property ladder and buy their dream new home.


First time buyers need to consider a number of things when buying a new home:

  • Affordability – can I afford it, am I eligible for Help to Buy?
  • Mortgage – will I qualify for a mortgage, what type and how much will it cost?
  • Other costs – what other monthly bills will I have?
  • Design – how do I make it my home in my style for my budget?


Now, first time buyers can get answers to these questions and take a stress free route to home ownership at this exclusive weekend event which will be held from 12pm – 4pm on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th October at Cruden’s popular Baron’s Vale development in Glasgow’s thriving East End, where only a few properties remain for sale.


Potential first time buyers will get a wealth of advice and support from Cruden’s award winning sales team, interior designers and a ‘whole of market’ Independent Financial Advisor (IFA).  The Cruden team will explain the Help to Buy Scheme, qualify applicants and manage the entire process for them on behalf of Scottish Government.


The one stop shop event will also provide information on all the associated costs involved with buying a home and visitors will be able to view the plans for Cruden’s newest show home and even get expert advice on how to decorate their new home, tailored to their individual budget!


Homes at Baron’s Vale will be complete in March 2017 and are being sold off plan.  All the homes qualify for the Government-backed Help to Buy (Scotland) scheme which allows buyers to own a home with only a 5% deposit.

Buying ‘off plan’ is ideal for first time buyers – it allows homebuyers to plan their house move in detail.  Cruden’s structured purchase plan can support those looking to buy of their estimated monthly mortgage payments, deposit required and all the other costs associated with home ownership.   What’s more, it gives first time buyers time to save for the perfect sofa, bedding or curtains for their new home!

Liz Mallon, Sales & Marketing Director of Cruden Homes West, explains: “This unique event will really help any first time buyer understand what is fully involved in buying their first home and explain the benefits of the Help to Buy Scheme. The scheme has been designed to meet the needs and affordability of a range of first time buyers, however, many people are still in the dark about how affordable and straightforward buying a new home with this fantastic initiative can be.


“We want to give first time buyers all the tools they need to make an informed decision about buying a new home at Baron’s Vale.  Cruden Homes sales staff can take the stress out of home ownership by offering expert assistance with Help to Buy eligibility, affordability and getting them excited about what their new dream home could look like.   This event is the perfect way to start their journey!”


Expected to be a very popular event, Cruden’s interior designers will be on hand with lots of layout designs, wallpaper and fabrics to see on the day.  First time buyers should visit the Cruden Baron’s Vale sales and information suite, MacDuff Street, off London Road, G31 4PN from 12pm-4pm on Saturday 29 October and Sunday 30 October.
