People hoping to buy their own home can get all the information they need at our new SO Living website, launched today.

The website – www.so-living.co.uk – tells you how to buy a shared ownership home with us.

The site includes frequently asked questions explaining what shared ownership is and who is eligible.

You can also view descriptions and photos of homes currently for sale and request a viewing.

Schemes which will be available soon include Southern Gate in North Prospect, Southway Campus in Southway and Bodmin Road in Whitleigh.

There are also testimonials from residents who have recently moved into SO Living homes.

One of these is Lisa Weeks, who moved into Grassendale Avenue, North Prospect, in April with her family.

She said: “The house is so spacious. Everything’s brand new and there’s a big kitchen. The whole process of moving in was easy too. Vicki from the SO Living team gave us details of mortgage investors and it all went through really quickly.”

Claire Andrew, PCH Neighbourhood Housing Officer, said: “‘The SO Living website is a great one-stop shop for people wanting to learn more about shared ownership and the properties we have available. We want to help people get a foot on the property ladder, and we’re here to assist from initial enquiries, right through to picking up the keys. The new website is a great way for people to learn more about what SO Living is.”

The SO Living team has sold more than 70 shared ownership properties in the city since 2012, including PL2, the North Prospect regeneration project.

SO Living is the sales subsidiary of Plymouth Community Homes.
