Of those who said they were against, not wanting to rely on someone else to help them into their home was cited as the reason for the majority at 26%.
In second place 19% of respondents thought that it was too expensive to have a mortgage and rent.
And in third, a further 15% didn’t want to live in areas where the properties were on offer.
Just 6% argued that it was because of any stigma attached with the schemes.
Stephen Noakes, commercial director for mortgages at Halifax, says: “Affordable housing provides a great leg-up onto the property ladder and shouldn’t be overlooked.
“For those who think they are priced out of the market we would encourage them to consider an affordable housing scheme.”
