Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

TAY­LOR Wim­pey North York­shire says that 52 per cent of its an­nual prop­erty sales have come from first-time buy­ers.

They have sold 235 homes in the last 12 months, with 122 of them pur­chased by first-timers.

Deb­bie Whit­ting­ham, re­gional sales and mar­ket­ing di­rec­tor of Tay­lor Wim­pey North York­shire, says: “Con­trary to the re­cent re­ports of first-time buy­ers strug­gling to get on to the hous­ing lad­der, we have had a sig­nif­i­cant per­cent­age of our sales com­ing from those who are buy­ing their first prop­erty.”

Over half have bought us­ing shared eq­uity schemes on of­fer, which mean they need only come up with a five per cent de­posit.
