Zoopla has unveiled a simple Help to Buy explainer video to assist the thousands of borrowers expected to use the Government initiative this year.
The video (3:19s) covers everything you need to know about the scheme, which is aimed at helping those with a small deposit of as little as 5 per cent to buy a home.
The video can be found on the home page of the website under the ‘new homes’ tab at the top of the page or by clicking this link.
Thousands of borrowers have already used Help to Buy to move into a new home after it was announced by the Government in the Budget last April.
Almost 750 borrowers have bought a new home using the Help to Buy mortgage guarantee scheme, according to Downing Street. A further 6,000 people have made offers on properties.
In November last year, the Government released the first official figures for the equity loan scheme, which helped 5,375 buyers during its first six months.
The popularity of Help to Buy among first time buyers and existing home owners is expected to continue throughout 2014.
The X Factor house is back on the market for rent following the end of the latest series, won by Sam Bailey.
The seven bedroom detached property was revealed by Zoopla last year as the X Factor contestants moved in ahead of the live shows.
Number 9a Broad Walk, in London’ s Winchmore Hill, had plenty of space to accommodate the contestants, including Sam Callahan, Tamera Foster, Rough Copy, Luke Friend and Nicholas McDonald.
There are seven bedrooms, six bathrooms and a swimming pool with a sauna.
And perhaps most importantly – especially for the X Factor stars – added security is provided with the property being set behind gates.
It is available to rent for £20,000 a month, the equivalent of £4,615 per week. The estimated value of the property is more than £6m.
Nick Charalambous, of estate agents Winkworth, described Broad Walk to Zoopla at the time as “one of the most desirable in North London”.
The area is well known for attracting singers, with Lionel Richie and Cliff Richard both having previously lived there.
The area includes some relatively expensive, substantial family homes, and is a sought after location for families moving in to the area.
The average value of a property on the road Is £2.6m, but turnover is low, with just five homes in Broad Walk sold during the past five years. In the wider N21 postcode, the average property value is £more than £500,000.
A luxury Hertfordshire mansion occupied by singer and former X Factor judge Tulisa has been sold.
It had an asking price of £4.5m and has been sold subject to contract.
The property is set behind an electric gated entrance, and has five bedrooms split over two levels, an indoor pool complex with a gym and cinema room, and a sweeping drive.
There is also a triple garage and extensive landscaped gardens, with just under two acres of land.
It is said to be in ‘one of the most desirable places to live in Hertfordshire’.
Lawrence Henry, of Statons, the estate agent handling the sale, told Zoopla: “It is a stunning home. The only part left from the original house on the site is the façade. It has been redeveloped to an exceptionally high standard. It is set in its own grounds and has a deep drive.”
It is understood the singer no longer lives at the property.
The N-Dubz star was arrested after being accused of setting up a drug deal to an undercover reporter. But the drugs trial at London’s Southwark Crown Court collapsed following a sting arranged by Sun investigative reporter Mahzer Mahmood.
The judge at the trial told jurors there were strong grounds to believe Mahmood had lied at a pre-trial hearing and the case was thrown out.
