Home Reach Opportunities In The North West

Posted 15 December 2021 by Keith Osborne

A range of homes across the South West region are available via the Home Reach ‘part buy-part rent’ scheme...

For house-hunters who are searching for a first home to move into early next year in the North West of England, there are opportunities to do so at developments across the region which offer new build properties for sale through the Home Reach scheme.

Home Reach is a partnership between housing provider heylo and a number of housebuilders across England which gives buyers who meet the eligibility criteria the opportunity to ‘part buy-part rent’ a brand new home. You can purchase a share of a new build home (usually starting at 50%) and pay a subsidised rent on the remainder, with heylo as the landlord. The scheme is offered on selected plots at a development and provides all the benefits of homeownership but requires a much smaller deposit (5% of the share price) and a smaller mortgage than when purchasing outright. Over time, owners can buy further shares as their budget allows, until they own 100%.

Here are some examples of homes in the North West now for sale through Home Reach.

Highgrove Park is just over a mile from the centre of Ormskirk, the market town which offers a host of shops, amenities and entertainment, and within easy reach of the likes of Southport, Liverpool and Manchester.
