In a move announced by the government last year, young first time buyers can now go online and sign up for cut-price new starter homes – with 20% off the asking price.
The www.starter-home.co.uk website officially launched this weekend and is now live for those under 40 to register their interest in buying one of the new homes. New rules have cut planning requirements for the new Starter Homes, allowing house builders to slash 20% off the usual price. The government says that building on the first homes is expected to start within months.
Housing already seems to be becoming an important topic in the run up to the election with all major political parties pledging to increase the number of new homes being built every year to cater for increasing demand and to help stimulate the economy. Though increasing supply runs the risk of diluting housing prices, in our extremely competitive areas of Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire schemes to help get people on the property ladder should only help to meet existing demand and be good news for our local property market.
