Buying Options

The Acorns offers a range of buying options to help you get moving. As well as being part of government-backed schemes like Help to Buy, we also offer our own ‘Assisted Move’ scheme to remove the stress of selling your existing property. If you’d like some impartial advice, we can put you in touch with an Independent Financial Adviser for help.

Help to Buy

Help to Buy is the government-backed scheme for home buyers, meaning you can purchase your new home with only a 5% deposit. You don’t have to be a first-time buyer to take advantage of this scheme – it could help you upsize from your existing property.

With Help to Buy, you make a five per cent deposit and get a mortgage of up to seventy five per cent on your new house. The remaining twenty per cent is provided by a government equity loan, which is interest-free for the first five years.

Assisted Move

With our Assisted Move scheme, we’ll get rid of the hassle of selling your existing home by doing it for you. We’ll put your property on the market and pay your fees meaning that your dream home move could be one step closer.

First, we’ll secure your chosen Acorns home. Then we’ll conduct a valuation and survey of your existing property and agree a realistic selling price. We’ll instruct estate agents to market your home, pay their fees and keep you updated with progress. Finally, once we’ve found a buyer, we’ll appoint a solicitor and mortgage broker to help the sale go smoothly. (Terms and conditions apply.)
