Army Staff Sergeant uses Home Reach to buy her first home
“I’d never heard of Home Reach until the sales team told me it was available on my apartment. It’s brilliant – the scheme is very straightforward and easy to understand, and I love the flexibility it gives me to buy more shares in my home in future.”
Leanne purchased a 50 per cent share of her apartment for £140,000 (full market price £280,000) and put down a deposit of £21,000, funded by her savings. She explains: “I’m paying £440 each month for my mortgage and around £350 for rent – that’s very affordable, it’s about a third less than I was paying in rent for army housing, and best of all it’s my own home.”
She adds: “I already own half of my apartment, and I definitely plan to buy more shares in time. It’s great to be able to do this at my own pace, when I can afford to do so.”
