One of these swish flats could be your first rung on the property ladder (Picture: Metro.co.uk)
Next Monday is the start of the first National Home Buying Week, a brand new initiative that aims to educate potential buyers throughout England about home ownership and the help that’s available to them when getting on the property ladder.
During the week, buyers will be able to join informative virtual events including live webinars on key topics like Help to Buy, shared ownership and mortgages, where you’ll be able to get your questions answered by a team of property experts.
There will also be seminars on essential matters such as boosting your credit score and saving a deposit, plus animations explaining government schemes, and a walk through video and Q+A with vlogger Jade Vanriel.
One of the highlights is a masterclass on viewing a property, presented by Jonnie Irwin of BBC’s Escape To The Country and Channel 4’s A Place In The Sun.
‘Being a first-time buyer can be a daunting experience, given the wide range of home-buying schemes available and property jargon that can be confusing,’ Jonnie says. ‘National Home Buying Week is designed to provide a starting point for all buyers and arm them with the information they need to get onto the property ladder in a clear and informative way.
‘It’s an exciting time to be a first-time buyer, particularly given the new Help to Buy scheme and 95% mortgage announcement, and with the property market set to see a mini-boom, now is a great time to find out how you could take those first steps onto the ladder.’
National Home Buying Week, hosted by First Time Buyer Magazine, takes place between March 22-27. Visit the website here for more information.
