2015 has kick-started with new Government figures showing that sales through Help to Buy have hit 73,000 since it launched. Here at Countryside, 43% of our customers across the North West became homeowners through the flagship 5% deposit scheme.
We firmly believe that Help to Buy is enabling people to get on the property ladder far sooner than they thought possible, as they don’t need to save a whopping 20% deposit.
Peter Vella, Regional Sales and Marketing Director, Countryside, commented: “The number of first time buyers is at its highest since 2007, a sure-fire sign that the affordability of Help to Buy is enabling more and more people to own their own home.
“Countryside has definitely felt this increase in buyer activity and with our sales offices at their busiest for the past few years, it is evident that the housing market is strong.
“There is no doubting that this has been significantly boosted by the affordability of Help to Buy, which not only enables people to own their own home far sooner than hoped, but also frees up extra budget to improve their quality of life.”
