Meet Katie and Benny

  • 17 October 2022

Meet Katie, a first-time buyer in her early twenties who has just bought her first home with Shared Ownership! As part of Shared Ownership week, we caught up with Katie to talk about her experience and why she knew Shared Ownership was for her and her adorable dog Benny.

1. Where did you first hear about Thirteen Homes and Shared Ownership?

I had been searching for homes on Right Move and I saw the new homes at Amblers Grange were available with Shared Ownership, so I enquired straight away.

2. What attracted you to Shared Ownership?

I was buying a home on my own, so buying a home outright wasn’t an option for me. Buying with Shared Ownership meant I could get onto the housing ladder on my own which is just amazing!

3. How did you find the process of buying through Shared Ownership?

I found the entire process of buying a home with Shared Ownership very easy. The team at Thirteen Homes were extremely accommodating and helpful along the way. It was so simple and no different to purchasing a home outright. I would 100% recommend Shared Ownership with Thirteen Homes to others.

4. Lastly, if you could invite any 3 celebrities over for a dinner party at your new home (dead or alive) who would it be and why?

It would have to be…
Lauren Graham who is an actress from one of my favourite TV series.
Paddington Bear, just for the fun he would bring to the party.
Yvette Fielding, because I like going on the Most Haunted explorations and she would make the party very interesting.
