We’re celebrating after a sell out success at The Firs, our latest Shared Ownership scheme in Salford. All 15 two and three bedroomed homes sold within two weeks of launching, with seven homes being reserved on the first day.
Salford MP Rebecca Long-Bailey and Paul Longshaw, lead member for housing and neighbourhoods at Salford City Council, were taken on an official tour of the site by Guy Cresswell, executive director of customer services and Lizzy Bachelor, one of our sales’ advisors.
The scheme was built by Kier Living and was partly funded by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) who provided a grant of £270,000. This new development was constructed after the sales success at nearby Hart Hill Place located at Edward Avenue, in Weaste, where the team sold 27 new homes.
Rebecca Long-Bailey MP, said: “I am delighted to see The Firs, the latest vibrant and buzzing regeneration scheme in Langworthy. It’s a great place to live with a solid community and I know the new residents will love living here. This development plays one small part in providing the community with the top quality homes they deserve, from private and Shared Ownership, to homes for social rent.”
Guy Cresswell, executive director – customer services at Great Places Housing Group, said: “The demand for contemporary, spacious properties in Salford is huge. Residents want to own their own modern homes and are finding that Shared Ownership, the part buy, part rent Government scheme, is the easiest way to get onto the property ladder.”
