Brand New Homes In Salford Right Now

Posted 26 October 2020 by Keith Osborne

Salford has become a go-to destination for house-hunters with its impressive range of available brand new homes...

The last 15 years or so have seen Salford Quays undergo major regeneration to become one of the North West’s trendiest addresses, and together with the rest of the City of Salford district of Greater Manchester there’s an excellent range of brand new homes for sale now.

In addition to those selling on the open market, for those taking a first step on the property ladder there are some apartments and houses available via Shared Ownership, a part buy-part rent scheme that requires a much smaller deposit than purchasing outright. Buyers with a larger budget and needing a larger home can find a host of houses with private gardens, which have become a priority for many people during coronavirus lockdown.

For units completed by the end of December this year, the current Help to Buy scheme will be available on selected private sale home to both first-time buyers and those selling a current property, but from April next year the government-backed initiative with only be open to first-timers and the upper price limited reduced from £600,00 to a regional £224,400. There’s a Stamp Duty holiday in place until the end of March 2021 that means none needs paying on properties up to £500,000.

Investors will also be attracted to Salford as recent research by CIA Landlord has placed it at the top of the table nationally for the ratio of house price to rental return while Stamp Duty isn’t payable.

A Guide To Part Buy Part Rent
Part Rent Part Buy is a scheme you can use with Home Reach where you buy a share of your chosen newly built home and pay a monthly rent on the part you don’t buy. Your budget will decide the size of the share you buy, rather than the size of your home. So, you might decide to buy a bigger share of a lower priced home or a smaller share of a more expensive home.

You are able to purchase your share in either cash savings or by taking out a mortgage. If you are taking out a mortgage to finance your share, you will need to allow for a minimum of 5% deposit. The larger your deposit (typically 10%) the lower your mortgage repayments are likely to be.
