The town is great for commuters, young couples and families alike as it is within easy reach of major towns and cities including Norwich (31 miles away) and Kings Lynn (only 12 miles away).

Yet, with the Norfolk Broads so close by, perhaps the perfect mode of travel is by boat, quietly cruising the waterways and looking for a glimpse of a water vole among the reeds.

Affordability guide

Estimate Household Income

When looking for your new home, it’s important to understand what you can afford. To help get an idea of the estimated affordability for a home on this development, you can apply the 40% net income approach. In simple terms, this means that a household should not spend more than 40% of their household income to pay for their mortgage, rent and service charge.

2 Bedroom £39,613*

As a rough estimate, the graphics above suggests the household income required to purchase; however, people with a lower income may be able to secure a property if they have a larger deposit. (i.e. if you have a larger deposit saved, where you have higher savings, your household income can be lower than the figure quoted above).

How it works

Shared Ownership is a government-backed scheme which allows first-time buyers – or those who do not currently own a property – the opportunity to purchase a home at a more affordable price.

Affordability Guide graphic for Shared Ownership from Legal And General Affordable Homes based on a 5 percent deposit and a 40 percent share value.

The Shared Ownership scheme is simple – you buy an initial share of between 40% and 75% of the homes full value and pay a subsidised rent on the remainder.

You may purchase further shares (up to 100%) as your circumstances change, should you choose to.
