Shared Ownership Schemes Seek to Make the Most of Property Sales

PEOPLE looking to retire or downsize are being advised that they are unwittingly failing to free up cash to enjoy their retirements by not realising the potential of shared ownership schemes.

As a result, a good proportion of retired wealth is tied up in property ownership. In fact, those over 55 in Scotland are likely to own a house which is worth more than their pension fund.

Downsize Me: The Stumbling Blocks and How to Address Them

FOR ANYONE with a property with room to spare the prospect of downsizing should be a prime consideration – financing an earlier and easier retirement.

IMPRESSIVE coastal views and attractive neighbouring properties are just two of the reasons that have helped St Andrews to land a new title – for having Scotland’s most expensive street.

However, while the eye-watering claim of The Scores having properties that sell for an average of well over £2 million puts a home there out of the reach of the vast majority of people, that’s not to say St Andrews does not still remain an affordable place to buy.
