We have sold our first shared ownership home, helping a young family get on the property ladder.

The sale was completed in June and the family moved in on 1 July 2017. The brand new home is a three bedroom mid mews house on Ennerdale Lane in Scunthorpe.

Kyle Fraser, the owner of the Ennerdale Lane house, said: “I’ve always wanted to own my own home and if it wasn’t for this house being up for sale we would still be in rented accommodation.

“Lesley and the team at Ongo were so supportive all the way through the process. They helped us all the way through the sale and answered any questions and queries we had. We really couldn’t have done it without them.”

Lesley Warburton, Home Ownership Manager here at Ongo, said: “It’s really exciting that we’ve sold our first shared ownership home. It’s brilliant to see a young family getting on the property ladder, and in such a fantastic house too.

“Shared ownership is a great way to become a home owner. You can build up the share of the house you own over the years, making sure your payments are affordable. You can eventually own 100% of the house which is fantastic.

“Ennerdale Lane is a great location too, near shops, schools, playing parks and not far from the motorway if you travel to work too. We still have one, two-bed home available which is definitely worth checking out.”
