With a mix of first time buyers, investors and people moving up/down the ladder – including locals and people coming from further afield – it seems everyone is in the market for property in Skipton and the surrounding areas.

The property market in the Craven area is very active and, with prices continuing to increase, getting on the property ladder can be tough… so a helping hand is always appreciated. Carling Jones are thrilled to announce three brand new affordable properties for sale, available to first time buyers as part of a shared ownership deal with Craven District Council.

Four 2 bedroom homes were snapped up on the Crossburn Close development in Glusburn earlier this year, but fear not, there’s more good news – set to be available before the end of the year, Harper Grove in Sutton will comprise a development of three brand new two bedroom houses. These shared ownership homes are exclusively available through Carling Jones and it is anticipated that they will sell quickly! The properties will be sold on a leasehold basis and are available by way of shared ownership with Craven District Council to first time buyers with a combined income of less than £70,000 per annum. Priority will be given to serving military personnel and former members of the British Armed Forces discharged within the last two years. A 50% share of the market value is available to purchase, with a rent payable on the remainder. In order to proceed with a purchase, any interested party must complete a ‘Help to Buy’ application on the Help To Buy website
