First-time buyers need less than a £7,000 deposit for a home at East City Point

East City Point 2According to figures released by Halifax earlier this year, a first-time buyer needs a deposit of around £106,000 (or 23 per cent) to buy a new home in the capital, making homeownership out of reach for most Londoners.

However, at East City Point – Clarion’s stunning new development in Canning Town – buyers can get their foot on the property ladder with a total deposit of less than £7,000.

Through Shared Ownership, buyers can get their hands on a 25 per cent share of a two-bedroom duplex for £120,625, with a full market value of £482,500.

Canning Town is ideally located at the heart of some of London’s most dynamic districts, including Canary Wharf, Stratford and the City. This scheme is also part of a £98m regeneration project which is transforming Canning Town into the next up-and-coming part of the East End.

The homes are constructed and finished to a high standard to ensure that they are not only comfortable, but built to last. A selection of the properties even boast their own parking and terrace.

Buyers will benefit from a variety of energy efficient measures which are designed to keep fuel bills down - including a high level of insulation, low energy lighting and water saving spray taps.
