Top Tips to get you on the property ladder at The Green in Ingol, Preston

The Green in Ingol offers a fantastic choice of 3 & 4 bedroom homes, perfect for first time buyers. Here’s some useful tips to help first-time buyers get on the property ladder.

  • Start by saving for a deposit: Some lenders now only require a 5% deposit and on selected plots we could even match this, giving you a total of 10%.*
  • Alternatively, if you are currently renting and have been for 18 months, 100% mortgages could also be available for people who can show evidence of their rental record.
  • For those of you who are self-employed, you no longer need 3 years of proof of earnings, this has now changed to just 1 year meaning you may be able to buy sooner than you thought.
  • Check your credit score: Your credit score plays a significant role in determining the interest rate you'll receive on your mortgage. Make sure to review your credit report, address any errors, and work on improving your score if needed.
  • Get pre-approved for a mortgage: Before reserving your home at The Green, it's beneficial to get pre-approved for a mortgage. This will give you a clear understanding of how much you can afford and see which of our homes are within your budget.
  • No Stamp Duty: The current Stamp Duty threshold has been increased for first time buyers, meaning you don’t need to pay it on any of our homes at The Green.
  • Consider additional costs: In addition to the deposit and mortgage payments, remember to budget for other expenses like solicitor fees, building & content insurance, council tax and general utility bills.
