The First Home Fund is a newly-created, £150 million shared equity pilot scheme that will provide first-time buyers with up to £25,000 to help them buy a property that meets their needs and is located in the area where they want to live.
It is open to all first-time buyers in Scotland and can be used to help buy both new build and existing properties.
The funding provided by the scheme will help up to 6,000 first-time buyers purchase their first home. This is in addition to the more than 32,000 households that have already used the existing Scottish Government shared equity schemes since 2007.
The scheme is operated by Link Housing and more guidance is available on the Scottish Government website.
