A recent report by the National Housing Federation has highlighted that youngsters wanting to buy their first home in a rural area are facing even more difficulty than ever to get onto the property ladder in their village, as the average rural property price is now 12 times the average salary of those working in the countryside.
Those aspiring to live in Whitchurch, a bustling market town ideally placed for exploring Cheshire, Shropshire and North Wales, may believe they have no way of buying a home here however, help is at hand, courtesy of Charles Church.
At Time Square on Liverpool Road in Whitchurch, Charles Church is offering its Fair Share shared equity deal whereby purchasers pay just 85 per cent of the market value of the property with the remaining percentage not payable for ten years or until the home is re-sold - whichever comes first, with no interest to pay on the outstanding balance.
