Home ownership with the Affordable Housing Programme

Published in Magazine on 7 October 2021 by our Marketing Team

The UK government have shown that they are committed to helping the younger generation get onto the property ladder, allocating £8.

6bn to build approximately 119,000 affordable homes.
 
– 57,000 homes will be available to buy
 
– 29,600 properties will be delivered for social rent
 
– 6,250 will be rural homes
  
The introduction of the Affordable Housing Programme is due, in part, to the shortage of homes being built over the course of the pandemic and aims to make house buying more realistic for families.
 
Lockdown and Brexit have taken a toll on house building in the UK over the last 18 months, as shutting down construction sites has delayed projects and led to disruption along the supply chain for materials, whilst there have been fewer workers available to complete work.
 
There has been a fall in completions of new build homes by 11% since last year, whilst the supply-demand imbalance has made homeownership more difficult for first-time buyers, in particular.*
 
What does this mean for you?
 
If you’re struggling to get onto the property ladder, this may be the perfect scheme to take advantage of.

One in three properties receive an offer one hour after viewing

The housing market once again exceeds expectations after a poor reception from the chancellor’s mini-budget and regular talk of a possible slowdown, as current research suggests that in 2022, almost a third (31%) of properties are now receiving offers within an hour, compared to a mere 7% in 2018.
