Dalmeny Avenue – Help To Buy Case Study


Buying a new home is considered to be one of the most stressful things to face in life, especially in London, where the price of property remains high. 


However, Amanda Parment, a 27 year old Account Manager from Sweden, found that buying a home at Dalmeny Avenue in Islington with Help To Buy, the government-backed scheme to lend first time buyers up to 40% of the cost of their new London home, allowed her to purchase her dream home in the Capital.


“The development is just perfect and I chose an apartment which overlooks the gardens. Being from Sweden peace and tranquillity is really important to me and I got a real sense of this at the development, even though you are in Central London. I also really like the area as I am close to Angel which I love to socialise in and I can walk to work.”


Amanda had been paying £1,800 per month (including bills) in rent, but her outgoings after purchasing a property at Dalmeny Avenue are set to be around £1,200 per month – a significant saving. Amanda comments, “I have been living in the UK for the past four and a half years and after several years of sharing with different people, I was keen to have my own place. I had been saving for a deposit during that time after realising that I would actually be saving money if I bought a property of my own, rather than spend all my money on rent and bills and have nothing to show for it”. 


Furthermore, thanks to Help To Buy, Amanda has found that she hasn’t had to compromise in terms of the quality of her new home; “The apartment is a really good size for the money and I love the large oversized windows which let in plenty of light. They are also finished to a really high specification with all the appliances included”.


Amanda also appreciated the help and advice given to her by the friendly sales team at Dalmeny Avenue, and how simple the Help To Buy process was; “Being from Sweden, I don’t have my parents close by to ask their advice but the sales team were really helpful and recommended a mortgage advisor who took me step by step through the whole process, reassured me all the way and made it so straight forward. After all the things you hear about moving home in the UK, I couldn’t believe how easy it was. I would highly recommend Help to Buy as a way of getting on the property ladder.” 


Prices at Dalmeny Avenue start from £482,500 for a one bedroom apartment, and approximately 90% of homes at the property have now been sold. Consequently, there are now only x5 properties remaining.
