Open Evening at Cargo 2

Home buyers have a fantastic chance this month to find out how the Government-backed Help to Buy and NewBuy schemes can give them a helping hand to buy a new home at English Cities Funds (ECf) stunning Cargo 2 development at Millbay.

A special open evening is being held from 4-7pm at the Cargo 2 Sales Office in Millbay Road on Thursday May 23 featuring information and advice on the schemes, which are aimed towards helping people get their foot on the property ladder as well as existing property owners who thought they had been frozen out of the market.

Both Help to Buy and NewBuy are open to all homebuyers, not just first time buyers, and offer the opportunity to take advantage of deposits from as low as 5%.

An Independent Financial advisor will be on hand to help home buyers check they are eligible for either of the schemes, to explain how they work and even help with the application process and mortgage advice. The Cargo 2 sales team will also be ready to offer advice on Cargo 2’s range of high quality apartments and townhouses, which will be completed in early summer.

Pauline Sangster, Residential Sales & Marketing Manager for Millbay’s lead developer ECf, said: “Saving for a deposit can be difficult, but by only needing a minimum 5% deposit to qualify, these two schemes are opening up life changing opportunities. Holding the open evening is a way of giving people the chance to get all the information they need in one go as well as the opportunity to find out more about the stunning homes available in Cargo 2.”

Cargo 2 is the latest development in the transformation of Millbay into a vibrant new residential and cultural quarter, making the most of its waterside location and close proximity to Plymouth city centre.

Situated opposite the multi-award winning Cargo development in Millbay Road, Cargo 2 is being built and finished to the same high standards and occupies a fantastic location close to the new 171-berth King Point Marina, which is being developed by Sutton Harbour Holdings.

Cargo 2 features 1 bedroom apartments available from £125,000, 2 bedroom apartments from £169,950, 3 bedroom townhouses from £225,000 and 4 bedroom townhouses from £290,000.

Millbay is being developed by ECf, which is a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal and General Property and the Homes and Communities Agency. Demand has already been high at Cargo 2 and a number of buyers have moved early to purchase properties.
