Siblings make buying a new home a family affair in Bournemouth

Help to Buy assists brother and sister to step onto the ladder at The Citrus Building

For one brother and sister, the dream of owning their own home will finally become a reality as the pair take advantage of the Government’s Help to Buy scheme, at the recently launched The Citrus Building in Bournemouth.

Keen to take their first step onto the ladder, brother and sister George and Megan decided to pool their finances and venture into their first property purchase together. When they discovered The Citrus Building in Bournemouth they were impressed by the high specification and spacious living accommodation on offer and were keen to make this up and coming part of town their home. The pair has since reserved one of the popular, two bedroom apartments and are looking forward to moving in later this year.

Megan said: “We both work in Bournemouth and had been looking locally for a home that we both fell in love with. After visiting the sales suite we knew this is where we wanted to buy but we weren’t sure if it was something we could afford. When we were told about the Help to Buy scheme, this offered the ideal solution and has enabled us to purchase a beautiful, spacious new home, which we can’t wait to move in to.”

Duncan Johnston, Development Director, Bournemouth Development Company, said: “We have a fantastic selection of apartments available at The Citrus Building and with prices starting from £130,000 and the Government’s ‘Help to Buy’ scheme available across a number of the apartments, it’s no surprise that they have proved such a hit with the first time buyer market. The homes have been selling fast so I’d advise anyone looking to purchase in the area to visit our sales and marketing suite to see what we have on offer.”

A selection of studio, one and two bedroom apartments are now available to be reserved off-plan. With the homes already selling fast, interested buyers are being urged to make an appointment to view the new show apartment, which is open Thursday to Monday, 10am – 5pm.
