About Share to Buy

Share to Buy – the home of Shared Ownership

In an age where it’s becoming increasingly difficult to buy your own home, Share to Buy helps first time buyers to get a foot on the property ladder.

A one stop shop for affordable home ownership schemes, Share to Buy is an online property portal and the first point of contact for many buyers looking to purchase their own home through alternative home buying schemes such as Shared Ownership and Help to Buy.

 

With housing providers who specialise in first time buyer developments listing their properties on our website, users of the Share to Buy portal benefit from access to a wide range of new build and resale homes across the country. Potential buyers can register for alerts on properties which meet their requirements, as well as signing up to receive notifications about brand new schemes which may be of interest to them, all based on their individual search criteria.

Founded in 2004, Share to Buy started out as a specialist mortgage broker with a focus on first time buyer mortgages, expanding into a property portal in 2010. Share to Buy continues to offer mortgage services with a focus on the affordable homes sector and is authorised, and regulated, by the Financial Conduct Authority.

Utilising its expertise as mortgage brokers and knowledge of the property market, the Share to Buy portal uniquely offers affordability calculations for its users. Each listed property offers a financial guide, including an estimated deposit and potential monthly payments, helping buyers to weigh up their options.
