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:

"It was the easiest and best way I could purchase my own property"

Living with her parents and eager to take a step onto the property ladder, Sharon Guthrie was delighted when she discovered that with a little help and guidance from HomesinHants, she could finally do so on her own.

"It was the easiest and best way I could purchase my own property, without it I wouldn't have been able to afford to leave home". explains Sharon. "I wanted to live near my family and be close to local amenities, such as shops and transport links, and from registering with the HomesinHants website, I was recommended The Mallards, a Linden Homes development in Totton".

Sharon was approved for FirstBuy, an equity loan scheme specifically designed to help first time buyers struggling with the need for a large deposit. The scheme can help you purchase a new build home on selected developments with the assistance of an equity loan up to 20% of the value of the home. Sharon realised the scheme was ideal when she discovered that only a 5% deposit was required.

"The whole process was very easy and HomesinHants did all the work for me", said Sharon "I didn't have to call them once; I would definitely recommend this method to people in a similar situation to myself".

Purchasing a brand new, one bedroom modern apartment for £139,000 with an equity loan of 20%, Sharon's mortgage payments are affordable at £458 per month. Within just over one month from exchange of contracts, Sharon soon had the keys to a place she could call her own.
