property investment

If you’re a first time buyer and itching to get onto the property ladder, 2021 has some great news for you. With several moves by the government set to make getting on the property ladder easier and more obtainable for first-time buyers, 2021 could be the year you get your own set of keys. From the Mayor of London’s homes for Londoners scheme to the cuts in deposits, there is plenty to be optimistic about this year when it comes to house hunting. 

What is Shared Ownership 

Shared Ownership allows you to part buy part rent a property meaning you end up paying a smaller deposit and applying for a smaller mortgage. Yep, that means the hardest parts of the house buying process is pretty much sorted for you. This is because you only put down a deposit on the portion of the share you wish to own and so this is a significant help when it comes to finding your feet on the property ladder and securing your place there. You can also buy more of your home overtime and increase the share you own so you are essentially climbing the ladder without having to move anywhere at all. You can also search for these properties easily through portals like Keaze.co.uk, that cover shared ownership all over the country. 

Why 2021 is the time to buy 

While it not only promises a hopeful and optimistic end to the perils 2020 brought us face to face with 2021 is also looking good for house hunters financially. The chancellor has released the plan that ensures the stamp duty holiday will be extended to June which is great news for first time buyers who have been saving for all the down payments that buying a house ensues. You could save up to £15,000 by buying your home before June 31st. Initially this was to only run from July 2020 to March 31st and so the extension is certainly something to take advantage of while it lasts! And what’s more is that this also applies to shared ownership so you can take advantage of both before the deadline of June 31st. Keaze.com offers a search tool for affordable homes that is completely tailored to your eligibility, preferences and checklist. And with the super simple step by step process, finding the perfect affordable home is easy and quick. 

In addition to this news the government has also announced that house deposits will be reduced to just 5% in 2021 which is great news for first time buyers and the struggle that comes with saving for your first home. This is set to really pick up the market for the year and get first time buyers back on their feet and instill a bit more optimism to the dream of buying your first home.
