“I reserved the house without even viewing it first, as I just knew it was the home for me.”

After always living on the Yorkshire coast, Amy knew Scarborough was the place she wanted to stay.

Amy had heard of the Shared Ownership scheme but her sales officer Beth helped explain the ‘staircasing’ process further. She knew it was a great opportunity and was intrigued by the idea of buying more shares as and when she liked. 


It was the ultimate seal of approval from my Dad that made me sure; he’s always been a perfectionist!

Amy decided after 5 years of living in Scarborough, that she just couldn’t resist staying. Vision boards were always a big inspiration for Amy while saving for her new home. Her short and long-term plans would always be brought to life through her boards, including pictures of her dream new build house.
“My mum was the one who spotted the development while driving past. She told me about it straightaway, and without even viewing the interior I knew I wanted to reserve within the month!”
Amy’s first feeling was pure excitement when she visited our view home. “I just loved how tucked away it was from the rest of the development. The views from my window are just so scenic, and despite it only being a 2-minute walk from the roadside it is still very secluded.”
We strive to create the best customer experience for all our buyers at Space Homes, and always try to make their move as smooth as possible.
Despite such a positive process, Amy was constantly in disbelief her home would complete. She was always thinking something would get in the way, but after she received her mortgage in principle, the good news just didn’t stop there. “Still now I think to myself, oh my gosh I actually own a house! It just seems crazy.”
Amy loves to be a host, so her favourite feature of her new home had to be the kitchen. Guests always comment on the size of it, and it proved to be a delight for her family over the Christmas period!
The perks of new build homes that really attracted Amy was how easy the process was made for her. “I was really impressed by how everything was done with such intricate thought; the garden patio in particular was very well presented when I moved in.”
Constantly seeing others do it, Amy wanted to prove to herself she could do it alone. “My advice to anyone looking at buying a home or having doubts about the process, is to be proud of yourself…it’s a huge accomplishment!”
