Do you want to own a home of your own? Are you unable to afford market prices? Look no further, home ownership could be within reach.


Aspire2Own has been created by the Vale of Glamorgan Council and its partners in recognition that first time buyers can often find it difficult to get onto the first step of the property ladder. It is managed by the Council in partnership with Registered Social Landlords.

  • How does low cost home ownership make properties more affordable?

    Most low cost home ownership properties operate on a ‘shared equity’ basis, which offers first time buyers the opportunity to purchase a property at a lower than market value. This reduces the amount of mortgage required to purchase a property. An equity share is retained by a Registered Social Landlord at no extra cost to the buyer. This makes the property more affordable. 
  • What properties are available?

    Properties are most often available on new housing developments. The Council works with Registered Social Landlords to provide low cost home ownership properties on new housing developments in the Vale of Glamorgan. The properties available are advertised on the Council website and in the local press. If you are registered with Aspire2Own you will also receive notification by email of properties becoming available.
  • Why register with Aspire2Own?

    The Aspire2Own scheme is a register of people interested in low cost home ownership opportunities. The information collected, about where people want to live, the size of property they would like and their income helps the Council to plan for new low cost home ownership properties.


    We also use the contact details to make sure that we let interested parties know when low cost home ownership properties become available.
