Launching our shared ownership homes with new sales team SO Resi Agency
We are very pleased to announce that we have started working with SO Resi Agency, the new sales agent specialising in shared ownership, created by leading housing association Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing, to market and sell our homes at Flora Court, Auckland Rise and Heathfield Gardens.
SO Resi was created to help make shared ownership more accessible to homebuyers, and will handle the sale of our shared ownership affordable homes across Croydon. The three schemes, located in Upper Norwood, Thornton Heath and South Croydon in South London, are designed by outstanding architects, including RIBA Stirling Prize-winning Mikhail Riches, and comprise one, two and three-bedroom apartments alongside a small number of maisonettes, in keeping with demand for entry-level properties for local first time buyers. Homes have been developed to a high specification, with timber parquet flooring, Silestone worktops, Bosch appliances and private balconies. All have a range of integrated energy efficient features to ensure their sustainability credentials, including secure cycle storage, solar energy, electric vehicle charging points, and an Environmental Performance Certificate rating of B or higher.
Diana Alam, Head of Sales at SO Resi Agency, comments:
“We are excited to announce our first partnership through our new SO Resi Agency, and to work together with Brick By Brick to increase levels of affordable homeownership in Croydon. Partnerships such as these create a genuine opportunity to leverage expertise and work alongside equally ambitious partners to accelerate the delivery of much needed local, affordable housing.
“Croydon is a highly searched area on the SO Resi website, demonstrating that there is a clear demand from customers for shared ownership properties in this area as well as Greater London. We are pleased to be supporting Brick By Brick with the sale of these properties at three developments in the borough, which will allow aspirational first time buyers get onto the property ladder and secure their own home.”
Colm Lacey, CEO at Brick By Brick, said:
“Brick By Brick’s partnership with SO Resi Agency will help us to provide high-quality affordable housing to those who need it in Croydon and accelerate the returns we provide to our shareholder Croydon Council. These high-spec homes, which have been designed to our usual high environmental standards, offer a very appealing option for local people looking to take their first step onto the property ladder.”
