This morning the First Home Scheme, which was established by Government last July, published an update for Q1 of this year. Key highlights from the report include:
I am really pleased with the strong interest in the scheme, just eight months on from its establishment. The feedback I’ve received from those who have purchased a home using the scheme is that without it the person would have continued to pay rent while trying to save, rather than paying down a mortgage on their home for life. Testimonies given to the First Home Scheme say that it is very easy to navigate as part of the mortgage process.
The establishment of this scheme was something which Fianna Fáil fought for and now that we are in Government it is a reality.
