Affordable Homes Within Reach of Key Business Districts

Recent research has revealed that more and more businesses are now requiring staff to work full-time in an office, marking a notable departure from pandemic-era hybrid working patterns.*

With 43% of employees now reporting to work five days a week in an office, homes with excellent transport links to major business districts are once again growing in popularity, key for cutting commutes and enhancing overall work-life balance.**

Helping first time buyers step onto the property ladder in one of the UK’s thriving employment hubs, a number of new Shared Ownership developments are currently available across, or near to, London, Birmingham, Manchester and Bristol. Shared Ownership is an alternative housing scheme enabling first time buyers to purchase a share in a property (usually between 10%-75%) and pay subsidised rent on the remaining portion. Buyers will only pay a deposit on the share they are purchasing, meaning that deposits are usually far lower than when buying on the open market.
