Nearly half (46%) of prospective first-time buyers say their home buying plans have been delayed by Covid-19. However, first-time buyers who had decided to put their home ownership dreams on hold have recently been delighted by Peabody’s Williamson Heights development, part of the newly regenerated area and established community at Wembley Park by Quintain.
Offering a collection of one, two- and three-bedrooms; apartments are available to purchase via the popular Shared Ownership scheme and London Help to Buy, providing buyers with a much more affordable way of securing a home of their own, and ensuring that the current global circumstances don’t impact their homeownership aspirations.
Andrew Peglau, Assistant Director of Marketing at Peabody comments: “Covid-19 has set many hopeful buyers back in their homeownership journey, however thanks to valuable schemes like Shared Ownership and London Help to Buy, buyers at Williamson Heights are able turn the dream of home ownership into a reality. We launched London Help to Buy at this fantastic scheme last month and had a fully booked viewing weekend. Williamson Heights is a destination in itself, with unrivalled views from the rooftop terrace, impressive onsite amenities will be arriving in early 2021 and high specification apartments, they truly are a must see and we encourage prospective buyers to book a viewing today.”
Tess Anderson and Aaron Brown have recently reserved a home at Williamson Heights: “We began searching for a new home earlier this year had considered other developments as well as other areas in London. However, we didn’t find anything with quite the same quality fittings as Williamson Heights. We wanted a two-bed apartment so that we could use one room as an office space as it’s likely we will both be working from home more frequently post-covid, coupled with the co-working spaces and facilities on the ground floor of Williamson Heights – this development certainly ticked that box for us.
“We also wanted somewhere that was a new build with modern fixtures and fittings already installed, as that’s one less thing to worry about! As for the location, we wanted somewhere with a great community feel, green spaces and strong transport connections into central London – and Wembley certainly ticks those boxes too!”
