Shared Ownership in Liverpool
Why you should buy a shared ownership property in Liverpool
Think of Liverpool and what do you see? The Beatles and the Docks always spring to mind. But the UNESCO World Heritage City is no one-trick-pony: buy a home in Liverpool and you’ll never want to leave. It’s streetwise, it’s fun and it never fails to deliver. And like any self-respecting big city, it knows all about reinvention.
Over the past decade, Liverpool’s tangle of streets has seen an influx of cultural landmarks, truly memorable eating destinations, and disused warehouses transformed into humming centres of enterprise. This is a city you can muse about exceptional art galleries, peek through the distinctive red gates at Strawberry Fields, tuck into exceptional Michelin-starred nosh, hang out at the Beatles’ former drinking dens, and book into speakeasy for cracking cocktails. You come for the cultural heritage and the world-famous football clubs; you stay for the addictive camaraderie and the creative energy.
Elsewhere, the formidable Roman Catholic Metropolitan Cathedral is an endlessly charming way to escape the clamour every now and then, and the verdant Grade- I-listed site of Sefton Park provides ample space to run wild with its playground, caves, waterfalls and botanical collection. For locals, getting around is effortless – the city bike hire scheme makes for cheap and efficient two-wheeled tours; bus and rail networks are comprehensive and fast; and travel aboard the world-famous Mersey Ferries to gaze at the dockside city from the water.
Part-buy Part-rent Liverpool
Head to Liverpool today and you’ll discover it’s full of wit, aspiration and attitude.
The good news? First-time buyers have every chance of hopping onto the property ladder with shared ownership: you don’t need a huge deposit and you just need to be earning less than £80,000. And there are some fantastic options for first-time buyers with shared ownership homes in Liverpool. In the town of Litherland - where once-upon-a-time the Beatles played some of their earliest gigs – you’ll find stylish semi-detached homes with three floors of high-spec design, ensuite master bedrooms and pretty front and back gardens. It’s possible to get your hands on a slick city centre pad too: plot a course to Liverpool One and there’s a series of flats close by available to purchase on a shared ownership basis – all well-kept, modern and with access to a communal courtyard, though the real selling point is the central location.
Alternatively, in the district of Speke on the southern fringes of the city, you’ll find brand new semi-detached homes with three large bedrooms, neat gardens and smart and bright kitchens.
