Alexa and Jordan' s story

alexa and jordan

Despite paying more than double for their mortgage than they were for their rent, the couple see great value in their new home, gaining more space for their family to grow and confidence that their monthly energy bills would be lower than what they would pay in an older property.

After finding the process of buying their first home incredibly easy thanks to the Gleeson sales team supporting them every step of the way with regular updates, Alexa and Jordan were thrilled that their home features a front and rear garden for their son to enjoy plenty of outdoor space to play in, plus a garage and drive their cars too.

Alexa said: “We never imagined that we would be able to afford our dream wedding and our dream home in the same year but thanks to Gleeson and how affordable and easy they made the first-time buyer process for us, we are now proud homeowners of a gorgeous, detached family home.

Despite now paying more for our mortgage than we were for our rent, we are thrilled to be on property ladder and in a home which holds such great value, and finally after eight years of renting, having somewhere to call our own. We also couldn’t believe that owning a 4 bedroom detached home would be more affordable than a smaller, older property - plus with our Gleeson home we don’t have to worry about anybody else's mishaps as we are the first to make memories here, it’s a win, win!

We love that we have moved into a blank canvas, enabling us to add our own personal touch throughout our home, it’s so satisfying to see the subtle transformations of each room as the weeks go by and we can’t wait for the future in our new home. The community feel is so friendly, and our neighbours have been fantastic, it’s great to have such a supportive network around you when you’re new to the area.”
