Help to Buy the home you want

Make your money go further with Help to Buy. First time buyers or existing homeowners can buy a new home with just a 5% deposit and a 20% equity loan – available on all new builds in England under £600,000. Easily find homes within your price range using our handy Help to Buy calculator.

Adjust the slider to the amount of deposit you have available. This calculator assumes that the minimum allowable deposit on a ‘with Help to Buy’ mortgage is 5% and the maximum allowable deposit is 30%. This calculator also assumes that the minimum deposit for a ‘without Help to Buy’ mortgage is 15%.

Mortgage interest rates are set by mortgage providers and will depend on a number of factors such as your deposit value, the value of the property and your financial circumstances. As a guide, as of September 2013 most mortgage rates are between 3% and 6%. This calculator works on the basis of a capital and interest repayment mortgage, with interest calculated monthly.

[?]

Adjust the slider to the amount you might expect to be able to repay each month on your mortgage. The results will include your other settings, including your mortgage amount, length of the mortgage term and interest rate. Note that this amount does not include the interest repayable to the Government on your Help to Buy equity loan from year 5 onwards.

Efficient, modern design

At Berry Edge we’re building beautiful new homes from our latest County range.

Space for your family to grow

These innovative designs raise the bar of what buyers can expect from a Barratt home. They’re light and spacious with free-flowing interiors, perfect for modern family living. Stylish kitchens, dining and family areas give you plenty of space to relax.

Design touches that make a difference

Our homes are filled with design details that really impress. Floor-to-ceiling ‘light pods’ blur the boundary between inside and outside space, while the double showers in our high-specification bathrooms are a smart and modern feature.
