    Shared Ownership - Large Share

    Shared Ownership - Large Share 12th Jan 18 at 2:52 PM

    I just wonder if someone has been in similar situation.

    We own 65% share in our flat, and are preparing to sale it, it gained quite nicely in value since bought it.

    And we wondering if we will have trouble selling it, because it is quite large share? I think most people have shares between 30-50%.
    Share comes to more than 100k.

    Thanks in advance

    I guess the question is - what else is available in the area at 120k or so? Also, are there new shared ownership flats on the market offering lower shares?

    I live in a shared ownership flat, and in our block people have struggled to sell shares of over 50% but less than 100%, but that's largely because we're in London so the prices are really high - people would rather save for a couple more years and buy somewhere outright than part with significant amounts of money for 60-70% shares.
