Rachel Suckling, 22, a PA for a director at a Mayfair-based company, has taken her first step onto the property ladder in Greenhithe at Thames Waterside by Fairview New Homes. Having been in her job for three years and living at home, Rachel realised she wanted more independence and so decided to move out of her mum and stepdad’s house in Dartford.
“As a young home buyer renting wasn’t really an option for me as I didn’t want to be pouring money into something I didn’t own,” says Rachel. “I was always looking to buy, but property prices in London are just too high for my budget. Working in Mayfair meant I needed to live somewhere with a reasonable commute into the capital.”
“Fairview’s Thames Waterside is an ideal choice for me, as the train station is a two minute walk away and trains to London Bridge take only 39 minutes – the same journey time as travelling from Dartford. Daily commutes to work can have such a great effect on your quality of life and this is something that I couldn’t compromise on. What’s more, the road connections from Greenhithe are so convenient, which means I can visit my Nan down on the South coast via the M2 and see my mum whenever I want, which is great!”
“I visited the marketing suite at Thames Waterside and immediately fell in love with the new homes. As they are right on the riverfront, the views from some of the properties are spectacular. The specification for the interior, especially the kitchens, was impressive and my apartment has a good-sized balcony; definitely a place to show off to my friends and for evening drinks.” adds Rachel.
Rachel bought her new two-bedroom home at Thames Waterside for £189,000 and was able to take advantage of Fairview New Homes’ 5% deposit top-up incentive for first time buyers.
Rachel continues, “My new home will hopefully be ready in September and I am so excited to move in. The area is fantastic, perfect for young professionals, with a 24-hour Asda right on your doorstep and Bluewater just minutes away. I also get a secure underground parking space, so I will definitely be taking my car with me.”
