Cornish first-time buyers welcome new plans to help them onto the housing ladder.
£400 million is being pumped into a government scheme.
It could mean thousands of new homes and mortgages with just a 5% deposit.
Valerie from St Just calls it a step in the right direction: "It is a big difference. Again, it depends on the house prices. You still have to find that deposit. With the wages the way they are and the way things are at the moment, it may help some people, but I think others will be stuck in the same rut and still won't be able to afford it".
