Nick Lieb, head of operations at Share to Buy, said: “First-time buyers looking to get on the property ladder may wish to do so for a combination of reasons: it’s common to not just want a comfortable home to live in, but the chance to buy in an area you love, as well as making a solid investment to ensure financial wellbeing over the long term.

“Locations where property values steeply increase are a great option for buyers looking for not only a home but an investment.”
