Take the first step on the ladder with Shared Ownership

With a new year firmly underway and life resembling something very close to normal, there is definitely an appetite for new beginnings and fresh starts – and stepping onto the property ladder is certainly one goal many first-time buyers are determined to achieve. However, navigating the different schemes available to support that important first home purchase might feel very daunting – to the point you might even decide to put it off! That’s where we are here to help.

Being a specialist provider of homes available to buy with Shared Ownership, St Arthur Homes is in the perfect position to help you find the ideal home for you and your bank balance. The Shared Ownership scheme offers an achievable way for first time buyers to buy a home without the need to have a large deposit to put down – and as the Help to Buy scheme draws to a close in 2023, it is likely that demand for Shared Ownership homes will rise. So, why not get ahead of the game now and take a look at one of the stylish Shared Ownership developments with St Arthur Homes – we’ll have you stepping on the ladder in no time!

A bit more about how it all works…..when you opt to purchase using Shared Ownership it allows you to buy a share of a property and pay reduced rent on the part that you don’t own. The scheme has been designed to help people on lower incomes with smaller deposits get on the property ladder. Buying a Shared Ownership property can potentially be cheaper than renting one, but the main benefit is that you own a percentage of a home. In many cases your monthly outgoings will work out cheaper than if you purchase a property at full market value, and of course you also stand to benefit from any increase in the value of the share you have purchased.

If Hampshire is a place that piques your interest, St Arthur Homes’ latest development Whiteley Meadows offers a choice of contemporary designed two and three bedroom houses and two-bedroom apartments just nine miles away from the thriving city hub of Southampton. Each property features bright, spacious and versatile layouts, and the variety of homes available means a wide audience of buyers are catered for; from those stepping into homeownership, to young families seeking extra growing space –there is something for everyone. Set between the villages of Whiteley and Botley near the market town of Winchester, Whiteley Meadows forms part of a thriving new neighbourhood that will bring forward more than 3,000 new homes, alongside new schools, nurseries, a care home, a community centre and retail outlets – making this a fantastic opportunity to live within an exciting new destination – reservations are already underway, so don’t delay and register your interest now!
