Buying with Shared Ownership
Shared Ownership is a ‘part buy, part rent’ way of owning your own home for a smaller upfront payment – making it easier for buyers to get on the property ladder.
So, what does ‘Shared Ownership’ mean? When buying a Shared Ownership home, initially you can buy anywhere between 25% and 75% of the home. You would take out a mortgage for the share you are buying, or in some cases you can be a cash buyer. On the outstanding percentage of the property that you don’t yet own, you pay a subsidised rent. The combined monthly mortgage and rent payments are often less than if you were to buy the home outright and can sometimes be less than if you were renting.
Shared Ownership homes in Harlow are the perfect first-time buyer option, benefiting from a friendly town, plenty of green and spacious landscapes, a close community and the box-ticking transport links. With homes available across this region, getting yourself on the property ladder in an emerging hotspot for commuters and families alike may be easier than you imagine through Shared Ownership in Harlow.
