Meet Isabella, one of our Stanneylands, Wilmslow customers. “I found out about Prospa Homes online, I wanted to stay in Wilmslow and my Mum searched for properties for sale around the area and Prospa Homes website popped up. Shared ownership was new to me and when I investigated it further, I realised it could suit my needs. Shared ownership also worked out cheaper than my previous mortgage, so after the move I’ve had extra equity to save. I grew up and was living in Wilmslow so wanted to remain, but I couldn’t afford either rent or outright sale (average price of a 3-bed home in Wilmslow  is *£532,368)  so shared ownership was the perfect in between. My children also attend the local schools, so I didn’t want to cause any disturbance to their education and move them elsewhere. Living here is even better than expected - both the home and on the development. Me and my boys have made friends with the surrounding neighbours and their children, they enjoy the play area and green spaces. I love it, absolutely love it, the estate has such a nice feel, despite the building works during the day as the development is ongoing, it is so quiet during the evenings, weekends, and everyone you pass is so friendly. Prospa Homes and the sales team were brilliant, keeping me regularly updated and handing over the keys was a special day for us all. There was one very minor defect for which I have an appointment, with a quick response and easy communication. The house has a sturdy, well- built feel, and it’s very warm which is reassuring given the current situation, I haven’t had to put the heating on yet, and some days even have the windows wide open as it gets so warm! Some would say it is cheaper to buy outright and in a cheaper area for future investment, but you’ve got to look at the ‘here and now’ and what works best for you. For me and my family, it worked perfectly for our situation, and we get to live in an area where both me and the boys have grown up, with a much more affordable option. I also have the option to buy in the future which I’m considering, but also have the option to sell if it came to it; it’s great to have that flexibility. I’ve not felt restricted with decoration either, although it isn’t completely mine it still feels like my home, which you don’t get in a rental property where it can be extremely limited. I don’t plan to do any huge changes, but I know I have the option to do so. My new house is so homely, me and the boys have had a fresh start thanks to shared ownership”
