Useful info for first time buyers – Government help is available

We’ve had an excellent start to the year with an abundance of new sales instructions coming into our Southsea, Portsmouth and Waterlooville offices. Despite the recent cold weather, it’s this time of the year where people are looking for a change as they head towards Spring and Summer….our clients are looking to move onwards and upwards!

Over the last few weeks, we’ve also had a great deal of interest from first time buyers who are looking for advice on how to get on the first rung of the property ladder. Our in-house financial advisers are available to assist with information and support for ‘newbie’ buyers (or for anyone looking to get a mortgage/remortgage for that matter!) and you can make an appointment to pop in and see them with any of our branches.

If you’re looking to buy for the first time, we think that this article on Zoopla could be useful food for thought – it contains a ‘shopping list’ of the set of Government schemes currently available that might make buying your first house a reality for 2017.
