A contemporary home in the heart of a lively Hampshire village, surrounded by lovely countryside and with excellent transport links, is the idyll of many aspiring homebuyers. Add to this the opportunity to buy through shared ownership, and it’s easy to see why most of the homes at SO Resi Hook have already been reserved.
Just a few two-bedroom apartments remain for sale, at prices starting from £61,875 for a 25 per cent share – full market price £247,500 – a 10 per cent deposit of just £6,188 is required.
Ideal for first-time buyers and young professionals, the stylish homes are designed to a high specification with a spacious open plan living area and great quality fixtures and fittings in the kitchens and bathrooms.
Plenty of extras are included from integrated kitchen appliances to fitted wardrobes in the main bedroom. Each home also has its own allocated parking space.
Residents will also benefit from exceptionally convenient transport links as the development is situated just over 300 metres from Hook station, where journeys to London Waterloo take just over an hour, while Junction 5 of the M3 is just half a mile away, providing quick access to Basingstoke and Farnborough.
Keen pub-goers will be spoilt for choice as the area – like any traditional Hampshire village – boasts a plethora of local pubs and restaurants which are ideal for a spot of lunch or an evening drink. There are also plenty of green open spaces located nearby, including Bassett’s Mead Country Park with acres of woodland to explore.
A great opportunity
Esaiyas Mollallegn, head of marketing at SO Resi, said, “SO Resi Hook is very popular with home-buyers who are looking to put down roots in a quieter area with a community feel, but still with easy reach of nearby towns and the capital.
“SO Resi makes home ownership more attainable in desirable locations like Hook because only a 10 per cent deposit based on the size of the share purchased is required, which is much less than a deposit paid on the full market value of a home.”
Through shared ownership, SO Resi allows buyers to purchase a share of their new home, making home buying more accessible, as buyers only need to raise a deposit for the share they are purchasing.
The share is typically between 25 and 75 per cent, meaning the deposit – which can start from just five per cent depending on the property – could be a fraction of what would be required if buying on the open market.
For home-buyers looking to buy more shares of their home, SO Resi is the only housing provider to offer a scheme that makes this simple and efficient.
SO Resi Plus enables home-buyers to buy an additional one per cent extra share each year, for up to 15 years, at a price that is fixed when they first purchase their home, saving the hassle and cost of arranging a solicitor each time they want to buy a new share. After the scheme ends, they can continue buying more shares if they choose.
