First time buyer round-up — great homes to get you on the property ladder

If you’re a first time buyer in the north east then we have good news: you live in — or near — one of the top cities in the UK to get on the housing ladder.

That’s according to price comparison site MoneySuperMarket, which listed Aberdeen as the only Scottish city in the top five of its First Time Buyer Index recently.

The research looked at 35 cities against key criteria including the cost of a one-bed property, crime stats, job opportunities and the average salary.

Bath took the top spot, and London the bottom, with the granite city placed fourth due to the higher-than-average disposable income, with buyers able to get their hands on a one-bedroom property for an average of £93,600.

And here at Ledingham Chalmers, we want to make it even easier to get on the property ladder, so we’re offering all first time buyers 20% off legal fees.

Plus, to help you find your perfect place, we’ve pulled together a handful of great one-bedroom properties, and if you don’t see something you fancy, why not take a look at our residential property page.
