SO Living is part of Plymouth’s largest affordable housing provider, Plymouth Community Homes.
The SO Living team have sold over 70 shared ownership homes in the city since 2012, including PL2, one of the largest housing regeneration projects in the South West. The team pride themselves on their personal approach towards helping you own your own home.
"My older daughter’s mother-in-law lives in Foliot Road. She’s in shared ownership too. I really liked her home."
"The size of these houses is so spacious. There’s a big kitchen and everything’s brand new. The whole process of moving in was easy too. Vicki from the SO Living team gave us details of mortgage investors and it all went through really quickly."
"We say hello to our neighbours and my husband’s got quite friendly with the man from next door. Everybody seems really nice around here. I can’t fault it. It’s been a godsend moving here."
"It was impossible for me to get a mortgage at my age but shared ownership made it possible for me. I grew up in North Prospect itself many years ago. It’s great to come back to an area where you were brought up. My sister lives nearby too."
"I’ve got to know my neighbours on one side. We say hello and have a chat over the fence. It’s well connected and near to all the facilities like my doctor’s surgery and the chemist’s."
"I’m comfortable here. It’s energy efficient – I don’t need the heating on here much so I’m saving money."
