Why first-time buyers choose us

If you’ve been living with your parents or renting for a while, then you might think that buying a home isn't possible but at Gleeson we build high quality low cost homes with prices starting from just over £100,000 for 100% homeownership.

A mortgage is often a cheaper alternative to renting a similar property in a similar area. Why wouldn’t you?

In addition we also offer schemes where you can buy a percentage share and rent the remaining percentage, or the government First Homes scheme (ask your Sales Executive what is available on their development).

With a Gleeson home you can expect affordable monthly mortgage payments, and low-cost living, as not only are our homes affordable to buy, but they are affordable to run too. 97% of Gleeson homes achieve an EPC rating of B or above*, meaning a new home is definitely the sensible choice. Data from the House Builders Federation ‘Watt a Save’ report 2023 found that owners of a new build home spend on average £1,707.42, saving £2,510.73 as compared to buyers of older properties who will be facing bills of an average of £4,218.15**.
