A HOUSING association is offering 19 shared ownership homes at a new development in Benson.
Catalyst’s two and three-bedroom properties are among the 241 homes being built by Cala Homes on land north of Littleworth Road.
A 40 per cent share in a mid-terrace two-bedroom home costs £128,000.
Becky Jacomelli, area sales manager for Catalyst, said: “Shared ownership gives first-time buyers and those that do not own a home a more affordable way to get on to the property ladder.
“You pay a mortgage on the share you own and rent to Catalyst on the remaining share. It often works out cheaper than renting alone.
“The amount of money required for a deposit is a lot lower compared with the amount required when purchasing outright.”
