Housing for sale

Looking to buy your first home or a new home is one of the most important decisions you may make in your life.

When you are considering buying your new home, it is vitally important that you take into account your financial and personal circumstances. You need to know how much you are able to borrow from a mortgage lender to fund your home purchase. An Independent Financial Advisor should be able to assist you on the financial products available.

You will also need to consider the costs of running and maintaining your home when you purchase a property alongside your own other personal outgoings.

When you are looking for a home to buy, there are a number of options you can consider. Looking in the local newspaper property sections or using one of the property sales websites can identify potential properties that may suit your needs.

If you find that properties on the open market are above the amount you can afford, there are also Affordable Housing Shared Ownership schemes in St Helens that may better suit your circumstances. More information on this type of home ownership option is available on our Affordable Housing page.
