Help to Buy South has helped hundreds of people to purchase or rent their new home.  Here are just a few of the success stories:

"We couldn't wait to show off our new home!"

Frankie and Hayley had been saving for a while but when they had their first baby on the way it got much harder to save and they wanted a bigger home for their newly extending family. Unfortunately they knew that they wouldn't be able to buy anywhere on the open market with deposits at an all time high. That's when they looked into their other options on Homes in Hants.

"We'd known about Homes in Hants for a while through key worker schemes as I'm a teacher" explained Frankie "we thought that shared ownership could give us the ability to own our own home and have some security and be paying into our own mortgage for us, instead of paying out rent"

Frankie a PE teacher and his wife Haley a sales manager had some savings but couldn't afford to keep saving enough for a deposit when their son Harry came along. They got some help from their family to raise a bit more money for a deposit and then they were able to start looking at their options on Homes in Hants.

"We found Augusta Park on Homes in Hants and thought they looked like they would be affordable for us. Then we got in touch with Sentinel Housing, we were already registered with Homes in Hants, Sentinel sent us out information on the homes and then we arranged a viewing. As soon as we saw them we liked them."

"We didn't realise just how big the house was until we moved our stuff in. We had been renting a two bedroom house and didn't think the difference would be that noticeable but we have lots more space now. Plus we now get to have a brand new house which we can make our own and have the security of the NHBC warranty."

Frankie and Hayley bought a 50% share in their three bedroom house which cost them £92,500. They were previously renting a smaller two bedroom house but now they are £100 better off each month.

"We are very happy with how everything has turned out, we moved in on Harry's first birthday and showed off our new home with a party. Sentinel have been great, our sales adviser Sean was there for us every step of the way. All the literature was always in plain English and Sean made sure that we understood every stage of the process. We have been telling all our friends they should do it too!"
