London Home Show Guest Blog: Southern Home Ownership
Wednesday 15th March 2017
Southern Home Ownership is part of Southern Housing Group; one of southern England's largest housing associations, with a growing portfolio of over 26,000 homes across London and the South East. We’ve been helping buyers onto the property ladder for over 30 years, making home ownership a reality for more than 4000 households.
This is why we’re proud to be official sponsors of the March 2017 London Home Show, as it gives us the opportunity to speak to potential first time buyers directly. We cater to those on a modest income and aim to help people realise their dream of home ownership in an affordable way. Shared Ownership is a key route to achieving this, as it combines buying and renting, giving you the opportunity of owning your own home.
- You can buy shares from 25% to 75% and pay rent on the remaining share at 2.75% per annum
- The minimum deposit required starts from 5% of the share you’re purchasing, meaning a smaller than average deposit
- Overtime you can increase shares in your home up to 100%, this is called staircasing
The London Home Show is set to be a great day, where First Time Buyers (like you) will be on the look out for their first home – so be sure to visit us at stand 4, we have a variety of homes available in London and a team of experts ready to guide you through the Shared Ownership process.
