Finding the perfect dream home with Help to Buy
Ian Saliendra, 44 and wife Maria, 44, following a move to London from the Philippines 15 years ago, were looking for the perfect new build home. They wanted to be within the area they had been renting and were looking for a home that was finished to a high standard that meant they could move in straight away without the hassle of decorating. The family finally settled on our Trinity Place development, in Becontree, London.
Ian comments, “We really really wanted our own place, our own home, because this is something that we see as an investment…something we can pass onto our kids as they grow up.”
Ian continues, “Help to Buy is very important for us in buying our first home because as with a family like us, having three kids, it is very difficult for us to save some money to make our first step... it made our dream come true.”
The family were reassured by the ease of the process, and the service provided to them by Countryside. They felt supported and guided throughout the whole process.
Ian adds, “Countryside, in terms of customer experience is absolutely fabulous. They make you feel that you are part of the family, they make you feel that they are there to support you.”
Ian and Maria were impressed by the design of the house, finding the rooms more spacious than initially expected. Falling in love with Trinity Place, the couple were delighted they qualified for the Help to Buy London scheme as it allowed them to make the very important step to becoming homeowners.
