Looking to get on the property ladder? A two-bed is a great first step

A two-bedroom home may fit your needs perfectly.

WHEN MAKING A big decision, it’s important to weigh up all the options.

There are some great possibilities for first time buyers and one of those possibilities is a modern two-bedroom house from Glenveagh. These newly-built homes come with more space and freedom than your average two-bed apartment. 

Live in an A-rated newly built home, with en-suite bedrooms, open plan living and your own back garden; a great option for young couples and growing families. They are also a smart choice for anyone hoping to move out of the rental sector.

Many new two-bed homes qualify for the First Home Scheme which helps first-time buyers with up to 30% of the cost of their newly built home in a private development anywhere in the Republic of Ireland. First-time buyers can also avail of the Help-To-Buy Scheme, getting a substantial sum towards their house deposit. It’s a tax rebate provided by the Irish government which is worth up to €30,000 of 10% of the property price (whichever is less).

A two-bed is a great buy, you can use the spare bedroom as a guest bedroom, study or gym, according to your preferences. If you’re looking to make your first steps into the property market, it can be a perfect starter home.  

A two-bed home can even help friends get on the property ladder together – the mortgage payments for a new build are very often less than rent, no matter where you are in the country. Alternatively, you can rent out the second bedroom to a friend even if you’re availing of government schemes that help first-time buyers. 

If you’re already in the market for a home, you’ll know the advantages of buying a new build. From having a home in turn-key condition to increased energy efficiency, there’s a host of convenient and financial benefits.

Sustainability plays a larger role in new builds, as evidenced by Glenveagh’s A-rated homes. Not only is this good for the environment, but it’s also great for your pocket too - a higher rating means a warmer house with less costly bills for heating. 

When comparing houses to apartments, you’ll find the former makes for a great standard of living. You’ll enjoy more privacy through your own front door as well as more outdoor space in most cases.

With these new builds, they’re designed with modern ideas of convenience as a key feature. Glenveagh’s Kilmartin Grove is an example of that. In these recently-built two-beds, you’ll find two en-suite bedrooms, an open plan living space that’s perfect for entertaining and a back garden.
