First Time Buyer Web Page Launched

11 November 2014


The Society has launched a new easy-to-digest web page aimed at first time buyers which includes testimonials from a young couple from Crumlin, South Wales. The first time buyers, Emmeline and Stewart, recently purchased their first home thanks to a Monmouthshire Building Society mortgage.

The Society’s first time buyer web page provides a valuable source of information for those wishing to purchase their first property, and a portal to the Society’s competitive low deposit mortgages which offer up to 95% loan to value in selected areas*. The Society’s product range is suitable for a range of home buyers including those hoping to purchase new build properties**, and offers competitive interest rates, and in some cases, there are no product fees payable.

As well as information on our low deposit mortgage range, special attention is paid to the Help to Buy – Wales scheme and the Society’s handy mortgage calculators which have been designed to help potential customers find out how much they could potentially borrow and what their monthly repayments might be.

Emmeline and Stewart, whose photos feature on the web page, looked to purchase a property in Crumlin, South Wales, and saved to put together a 10% deposit. They chose the area in order to remain close to their parents who live in nearby towns, and also because of the good transport links and affordable property.

Stewart said: “After deciding to make an offer on our home, we looked around at many different mortgage companies but chose Monmouthshire Building Society since the company is well known and offered us the best assistance and support. We spent a lot of time comparing rates, and found that they offered the best deal. After meeting with Kristy, our Mortgage Advisor, we were offered friendly and helpful advice at every stage, and the Society’s ongoing support confirmed that we’d made the right choice.”

Commenting on the Society’s support for first time buyers such as Emmeline and Stewart, Chief Executive, Andrew Lewis said: “Monmouthshire Building Society is proud of the support it is able to offer first time buyers who wish to pursue their dream of home ownership. The strength of our product range, allied to our award-wining recognition, cements the Society’s position as a competitive, vibrant and approachable provider of mortgage loans. I would like to encourage anyone who is looking to purchase their first home to head to the new webpage.”
