Friars-Orchard-Gloucester-View-e1616410971953

With rent costs rising fast, many renters are finding that buying their own home makes sound economic sense. And, with the Government’s Help to Buy* Scheme, prospective purchasers can get moving with just a five per cent deposit.

At Linden Home’s Greyfriars Quarter, in the heart of Gloucester, prospective buyers can secure a stylish one-bedroom Highgrove apartment with a deposit of just £5,549.75 with Help to Buy.

The Highrove has a stunning open plan living/dining and kitchen area and the apartments also benefit from balcony, spacious double bedroom and allocated parking. Greyfriars Quarter forms part of the redevelopment of the former Gloscat college site and offers a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments and three/four-bedroom houses. Prices start at £110,995 for a one-bedroom apartment and £199,995 for a three/four bedroom home.

Help to Buy

Sue Schofield, Sales Director at Linden Homes Western, said:

“Using Help to Buy, the Government provides an interest free loan for the first five years of up to 20 per cent of the property value. So, buyers only need to secure a 75 per cent mortgage from a bank or building society to purchase their home.

Help to Buy is open to all qualifying homebuyers – not just first-time buyers, and at Greyfriars we can arrange an appointment for specialist mortgage advise for those who want to find out more.”

Linden Homes also offers a wide range of flexible moving schemes to help you move to your dream home. With Part Exchange*, for example, Linden becomes your guaranteed cash buyer so movers can buy and sell in one easy, hassle-free step with no chain and no estate agent fees.

Hear what our clients have to say...

I cannot recommend Michael Tuck Estate Agents enough.

They were so professional and so prompt with their communication. In particular we would like to mention Charlie for his regular updates and extremely helpful service in the sale of my mothers house. We were in a particularly long chain, and he went over and above to assist us in the communications between the buyers and sellers in order for our chain to proceed. He even contacted Solicitors and helped progress the exchange.

“We are certain if it wasn’t for him we wouldn’t have sold our house! We cannot thank him and his team enough.”

Kelly Durkin

Miles has gone above and beyond to ensure buying our first house has been a smooth process. He has offered clarification and reassurance at all steps of the journey, making us feel like valued clients.

“We would recommend Michael Tuck Estate Agents.”

Hollie Blunt

Michael Tuck New Homes in Gloucester assisted us selling three phases of our development in Kingsway, Gloucester.

“All of the staff were very professional and knowledgeable sales people who represented our company as if it were their own.”

If we were to need help selling our homes in the Gloucester ara again they would be the first phone call i’d make.

Stephen Holbrook. Abbey Homes

Tony and John, Abbeymead branch, supported us during very difficult circumstances (and we don’t just mean Covid!)

The same applies to other staff when answering queries etc.

“They were unfailingly courteous and returned phone calls and emails promptly.”

David Duncan

I have been a customer of Michael Tuck Lettings in Abbeymead for coming up to 2 years now.

I would like to highlight Kurt and James for there forever ending support and excellent communication. Their joint efforts have filled me with confidence in the ability to keep my family safe in a home we love.

No matter the complexity or need they are always on hand to support and come to some form of reasonable resolution.

For this reason I would recommend Michael Tuck to all my family and friends and will hopefully continue to stay a customer of Michaels Tucks until I purchase my own home. Thank you

“Being a contact centre manager I know how important customer service is and I must say that Michael Tuck has not disappointed.”

Jay Preece

Miles and the team have been brilliant from start to finish during the sale of our house.

Miles especially went above and beyond with sales chasing when I think most other people would have probably given up! Really happy with the service.

“Such a friendly and professional team and nothing was too much trouble.”

Anna England

I was recommended Michael Tuck Estate Agents in Abbeymead by a friend, thank you friend!

I would like to say a big thank you and well done to the team who are very friendly, helpful and have taken the strain out of what was a fairly long house sale.

Special thanks go to Chloe and Tony for their positivity and Chloe thank you for your good humour which lifted me during the long process!

“I would highly recommend them for a first class service”

Michael Tuck Lettings in Abbeymead have been a fantastic letting agents looking after our house for the past 17 years.

We have recently sold the house with the sales department.  Kurt has looked after us incredibly well during the 17 years of lettings and Tony, Andy and Chloe have made the selling very easy. Thank you

“The staff are professional, approachable and easy to contact.”

Claire Rawlinson

I have recently bought and sold through the Gloucester branches and cannot praise Miles and the team highly enough.

In what has been a very testing time for the industry, Miles and all the staff have worked tirelessly in my purchase and even more so my sale.

Thoroughly recommend Tucks every time. Special thanks to Otis. Thank you guys it’s been an absolute pleasure.

“Their drive and communication skills have been amazing.”

David Lichtenstein

As a both a private individual and as property developer I have been using Michael Tuck New Homes in Gloucester to sell my properties for the last ten years.

During that time they have provided a consistently first class service. In particular ‘Richard’ has always been willing to go above and beyond what is required by offering highly skilled sales negotiation techniques to obtain the best price possible in various and sometimes challenging market conditions.

I special mention to a newer member of the team ‘Chloe’ who I had numerous conversations with in my latest sale, she was always friendly and approachable to myself and I am told the buyers and I am certain this would of helped, along with chasing the solicitors to bring my latest sale to a satisfactory conclusion.
