As some know, Ive been wanting to buy my own place for while..
I cant knock the service I get at home, but at 22 I reckon my own place would be ideal.
Now, I earn a decent wage, but what with house prices being where they were - I realistically couldnt afford a garage, so I looked into 'part rent part buy schemes'...which help first time buyers get onto the ladder.
I registered on every scheme with my local council and surrounding councils in the hope I could land myself a place.
Basically for those who dont know - you can buy/mortgage 25%, 40% or a 50% share in the value of the house, plus paying a small 'rent' element to the scheme provider.
A new development has been going up locally with 1&2 bed flats, which would be great...but even better than that I have been shortlisted for either a 2 or 3 bed house with garden, on this site....
Best thing is they are brand new
Its not 100% yet, but fingers crossed I may land myself in one of the 2 bed places.
Watch this space. Im excited, but I know it might not happen - but it could do
Car will have to take a back seat for the minute.
