First Homes Scheme launched with 30% discount for first time buyers
First Homes Scheme
The government has launched it’s ‘First Homes Scheme’ which aims to provide local first time buyers and key workers with, at least, a 30% discount on new build flats and houses compared to the market price. The same percentage that is discounted will be passed on to future first time buyers – which means that the homes within this scheme will always be sold below market value.
The aim is to provide local residents the opportunity to buy a new property within their local area, where they might be currently struggling to afford market prices.
The First Homes project has initially launched in the Bolsover district, East Midlands, but is set to launch nationwide within the next few weeks. The government has pledged to deliver at least 10,000 homes a year, and more, if the project is successful.
