Don't be spooked by Shared Ownership
Are you thinking of buying a new home this Autumn? It may be spooky season, but there's no reason to be frightened of Shared Ownership. So, put your mind at ease with our top reasons to choose this government-backed scheme.
What is Shared Ownership?
Shared Ownership is a scheme that allows you to buy a percentage share of a property and pay a reduced rent on the rest. We've helped thousands of happy customers make their move, so you can be sure that our new homes are far from haunted.
It's a great option for first-time buyers
Taking your first step onto the property ladder is an exciting time. And, with Shared Ownership, you could start your home ownership journey sooner than buying on the open market. What a treat! With deposits starting from 5% of the share you buy, the day you buy your first home could be closer than you think. Let's see an example:
- for a home worth £250,000
- you buy a 40% share worth £100,000
- which means a 5% deposit from £5,000 (based on a 40% share)*
There are a few important things to consider before you start the buying process. So, check out our first-time buyer top tips to see what's in store.
