Let’s hear from our customers
Since we started to offer Shared Ownership homes across Cheshire in 2019, one of the best bits is undoubtedly going to visit our customers once they have moved in. This has been the case even more so since the pandemic started, as we’ve not seen many of them face to face! Here we catch up with just some of our customers.
Having just moved in, Paola and her family have already made this brand new shared ownership house their home. The family love this area, being close to great schools and shops and with the countryside and city of Manchester in reach, this is an ideal family home. Coming from a rented house, Shared Ownership was a great option for the family to have a home for the long term, and they already feel settled and are getting to know their new neighbours, who are all fairly new to the Stanneylands development. With just a few more bits of furniture to arrive and some work to their garden, their home is already looking stunning. The family are looking forward to spending many more years calling Stanneylands their home; and their dog is very happy too!
Dane View, Northwich
We always love to be greeted by a happy dog and at Dane View this was just the case when we visited, just look at that face! These customers have been in their home well over a year and feel very happy and settled. This summer is the first year their hard work in the garden is starting to show, with a lovely selection of roses and flowers in full bloom. With lots of photos on the walls of children and grandchildren, this home has such a cosy feel to it and being able to downsize with Shared Ownership suited this couple. Being handy, the kitchen has had a few extra bits added for a personal touch, and their lovely doggy has found his favourite spot on top of one of the sofa cushions, so he can keep an eye on the garden and on the front door at the same time!
Woodford Grange, Winsford
We could have spent all afternoon with this lovely couple, who have been in their home about two months. Coming from a rented home with Weaver Vale Housing Trust, they were able to buy a Shared Ownership home after finding out more details about how it could work for them. They’ve made a great start on the garden with some railway sleepers, a water feature and a shed. The couple were very complimentary about the Prospa team throughout the sales process, from their first phone call of enquiry to the day they moved in. Recommending Shared Ownership to anyone looking to buy a home at their time of life, this couple are delighted that they now have a home of their own. With family living locally, they’ve had lots of people popping over (for now, socially distanced of course) to help celebrate their move.
Darnhall Walk, Middlewich
Being the first home for this young couple, staying local was important to them. Shared Ownership gave them the option for a smaller deposit, on the share they have purchased with a mortgage, to enable them to get on the property ladder. Wanting a home that they would be able to put their stamp on, and entertain in, was top of their minds. They moved in during the pandemic and said it was strange to get a key code to open a box to get their keys and move in! They’ve really enjoyed pulling together the look and feel of their home, and we especially love their fabulous bed and bedroom, so chic! After a pandemic move in, they can’t wait to have friends over in the garden to celebrate their first home together.
Brereton Grange, Arclid Village
Being so happy in her new home, this customer says how quiet and peaceful it is here, in this development in the heart of the Cheshire countryside. She says she would recommend Shared Ownership to anyone who isn’t in a position to buy a house outright. Finding private renting scary due to high costs and insecurity, she thinks Shared Ownership is the perfect option.
With Shared Ownership you are able to buy a share from 25% with a mortgage, and rent the rest of the home, along with the opportunity to staircase and buy more of the home when you are ready. Shared Ownership works for a range of different circumstances and you can confirm your eligibility for shared ownership via Help to Buy North West HERE.
Dane View, Northwich
After a busy month of moving in, this young family are settled and loving their new home. ‘We are over the moon and with two young boys it’s nice to have our own garden. The house is perfect, we wouldn’t have a family home if it wasn’t for Shared Ownership. House prices in this area of Cheshire are well above the national average and buying via Shared Ownership means a smaller mortgage and smaller deposit on that mortgage.
