Maddie and Tom's story


After visiting their local development, Maddie and Tom were thrilled to find out how affordable it was to own a 3 bedroom, semi-detached home, built from stone, which came with so much internal space as well as a garage, driveway and a front and rear garden. The couple felt that thanks to Gleeson they didn’t have to compromise on any of their requirements for their ideal home, and that they could get onto the property ladder much sooner than they first thought due to the buying schemes on offer and affordable prices.

After finding buying their first home very straight forward, Maddie and Tom are now loving life on their development and are much happier now that they have their own space as they enjoy the independence that’s come with homeownership.

Maddie said: "We couldn’t have asked for a better first home. We initially chose to buy with Gleeson because of how affordable it was, and also because the home is a blank canvas, which allowed us to personalise to our own taste.  A new home gave us the confidence that everything would be brand new and we wouldn’t encounter too many unwanted or unpredicted problems, and if anything was to happen we would be covered by the two year Gleeson warranty backed by the NHBC's resolution service, and a further eight years of insurance cover from NHBC as standard. We knew we have made the right decision to buy new over an older."
