In addition, a majority of people - regardless of their own circumstances - feel that it is harder than it has ever been for young people to buy their own home with 75% believing action is necessary to help first-time buyers.
Those who are looking for an easier way to fly the nest can do so through the London Help To Buy scheme at Countryside’s newly launched Allerton and Eastwell apartments at Kings Park, Harold Wood. This allows buyers to purchase with as little as a 5% deposit, the Government will then provide an equity loan of up to 40% of the property’s value, which is interest free for the first five years.
Andrew Loveday, Sales Director at Countryside comments: “It is increasingly evident that a number of house-hunters are looking to the outskirts of London to find their long-term home. Home ownership is valued as a major landmark for personal and financial development and Countryside understands that affordability is crucial. We are offering a number of homes at Kings Park with Help to Buy providing the opportunity to purchase a home whereby it may be cheaper to buy than rent. With the impending Crossrail and already fast access to the centre of London, Kings Park in Harold Wood is proving very popular.”
