Plenty of incentives for families buying new homes in South Wales


Thursday 8th March 2012

Lovell will match your 5% deposit on selected plots at Parc Eglwys

House buyers in South Wales currently have a superb range of new houses to choose from within easy striking distance of the thriving capital city of Cardiff, plus other key commercial hubs such as Newport and Swansea. London is just a few hours' drive away, while closer to home there are well-known leisure attractions, gorgeous beaches, and leading cultural venues to keep families entertained.

Shared equity schemes

Llanmoor Homes has a number of new developments in South Wales, including Cefn Cadno in Llanharan near Pontyclun, 20 miles from Cardiff. With a range of two-, three- and four-bedroom detached properties and link homes, the four-bedroom 'Llantrisant' house costs £215,995, complete with a single garage and private garden. An Equity Share Scheme offers an added incentive, whereby buyers pay as little as 85% of the purchase price upfront for a new home at Cefn Cadno.

Part exchange schemes

For buyers with an existing house to sell before they can move, Part Exchange schemes can help speed up the process. Taylor Wimpey is offering this as an option at its Lysaght Village development, just a couple of miles from central Newport and 14 miles from Cardiff. This site offers a good mix of properties to suit a wide range of buyers, from one-bedroom right up to four-bedroom homes, priced from £116,995 to £219,995. With a good choice of schools and colleges, leisure facilities and entertainment, Lysaght Village also benefits from Newport's excellent road and rail links to all major towns across South Wales and beyond.

Deposit match schemes

Parc Eglwys from Lovell Homes is situated in the village of Bassaleg, less than four miles from central Newport and 13 miles from Cardiff. Priced from £141,995 to £186,995, there are a range of buyer offers available on selected plots at Parc Eglwys, including a 'Bank and Build' scheme whereby Lovell will match the buyer's 5% deposit, turning it into a 10% deposit. This collection of two- and three-bedroom houses offer a village lifestyle with gorgeous countryside right on the doorstep - yet J28 of the M4 is only just over a mile away for commuters, placing Newport, Cardiff, Swansea and Bristol within easy reach. Families will find a number of well-regarded primary and secondary schools in the local area, as well as a good range of leisure attractions and amenities.

And for buyers with a more generous budget...

Between Pencoed and Llanharan, in the village of Brynna, Wynndel Property Management has created an unusual, retreat-like development of individually-designed, high-specification family houses for sale at Naturally Woodlands, 19 miles from Cardiff. With Brynna Woods as its leafy backdrop, this development of contemporary houses aims to offer a place away from the chaos of modern life, yet within easy commuting distance of Cardiff. The M4 motorway is nearby, as well the Pencoed and Llanharan railway stations, giving residents easy travel across South Wales. All homes are detached with four bedrooms, and are priced from £425,000, featuring lots of extra touches such as wood-burning stoves, feature skylights to maximise the natural light, and a double-height entrance hall.
