Kiera feature image
Kiera, 28, was living with her parents but was longing for a place of her own. She knew that on her own, she’d not get a mortgage for a substantial sum of money to buy locally, but she also knew that shared ownership could be her answer.

“I had a chat with a mortgage advisor to work out what I could afford to help me achieve my dream of having my own place. But every time a shared ownership house was advertised, it was sold so quickly."

“When I saw these homes being advertised for Hackleton, a pretty village in Northamptonshire, I didn’t hang about; I applied in under 10 minutes!"

“I was glad that I had my Help to Buy ISA – the government tops up your savings by 25% when buying your first home – which I used for my deposit."

“Grand Union made it super easy for me to buy this house. It was a completely seamless process, and the paperwork was straightforward.”

In October, Kiera moved into her two bedroomed house, which she’s furnished in her own modern style.

“I am totally in love with my home, it’s my pride and joy. It’s everything I dreamed of."

“I’d encourage others to look at shared ownership. It can be quite scary, buying a house on your own, but you can do it. It’s so empowering and rewarding having your own space.”
