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, affordable homes, with a number of schemes designed to help you take your first steps onto the property ladder. 

And with mortgages often being a cheaper alternative to renting a similar property in a similar area, why wouldn’t you?

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. 95% 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 2024 found owners of a new build home spend on average £1,277.18, saving £2,206.84 compared to buyers of existing properties who will be facing bills of up to £3,484.02 a year**.
