Family-Friendly First Time Buyer Houses by Home Reach

Shared ownership provides a stepping stone on to the property ladder, and with one of the largest homeownership programmes in the UK, Home Reach is proud to partner with over 130 housebuilders across 200 local authorities – enabling house hunters across the country to realise their homeownership dreams.

A Diverse Range of Homes

A key part of bringing affordable homes to buyers across the UK is to offer a broad range of homes, from apartments through to family-sized houses. Melissa Toomey, Director of Sales at Heylo, explains, “We don’t want to just offer one bedroom apartments for shared ownership, because we know there are families looking for three and four bedroom houses who can’t afford to buy in their areas at full market value. We want to make a diverse range of homes available, to make buying affordable to everyone who wants to do so and work closely with some of the highest quality housebuilders to make this a possibility.”

One such partnership is with Vistry Group, whose brands include Bovis Homes, Linden Homes, and Countryside Properties. Home Reach has recently launched 100 new shared ownership homes in partnership with the Vistry Group, a large proportion of which are houses. From three-bedroom properties in Peterborough to four-bedroom homes in Stowmarket, Home Reach has a diverse range of options available, ensuring every customer can find their perfect place to call home.
