Affordable housing

2. Low cost home ownership

Everyone should have the opportunity to live in a decent home; a home they can afford, in an area they want. However, big increases in house prices in Stockport have made it much tougher for many households to get a foot on the housing ladder.

There are many low cost home ownership options that have been designed to help anyone looking for an affordable home to buy – including council tenants, waiting list applicants, first time buyers and key workers.

All these initiatives are administered by Help to Buy.

A HomeBuy Agent is a one stop shop, allowing you to apply for a whole host of schemes and developments regardless of the supplier.
