A month ago I emailed you about the launch of the Conservative Help to Buy scheme. Since Labour’s financial crisis, hardworking people have been priced off the property ladder because of the large deposits you have to put down. That’s why we introduced Help to Buy - to make it easier to get a mortgage by cutting the deposits you need.
Four weeks on and it is delivering.And how does Dave assure us that it is delivering? Well obviously by using
1. Over 2,000 people have already been accepted in principle for a Help to Buy mortgage - 75 families every day getting closer to owning their dream homeBut as the email concludes, as if to reinforce the point, "this isn’t really about statistics. This is about people".
2. £365 million worth of mortgages are being processed - home sales that may never have happened otherwise
3. There are a third more houses being built now than this time last year.
