Catalyst New Homes: Expert webinar discussing property hacks

Join Catalyst for a live first time buyer webinar this November

Are you interested in getting on to the property ladder but unsure where to start?

Join Catalyst at 5pm on Monday 15th November for a webinar where they’ll be sharing their top property hacks every first time buyer should know.

From deciding which buying route is best, to how to work out finances, all the way to moving in tips, the webinar is designed to help buyers go from the very first stages of their property journey, right to unlocking the door of their new home.

Joe Farrington and Sam Cox, two of Catalyst’s leading sales gurus, will share what they’ve learned over the course of their careers helping first time buyers on to the property ladder.

Each year, Catalyst support hundreds of buyers to find their dream home. One of the UK’s leading housing associations, Catalyst is dedicated to providing homes people love, and building communities and neighbourhoods that can flourish and grow. They currently have a breadth of developments across London and the South East ranging from Portobello Road to Princes Risborough. With homes available through Shared Ownership, Help to Buy and private sale, they offer a variety of purchasing routes for first time buyers and second steppers alike.

Joe Farrington, Senior Sales Manager at Catalyst, comments: “So often first time buyers come to us and are already exhausted by the home buying journey, as it feels like there’s so many holes to jump through. We’re aiming to streamline this process, so purchasers can get the information they need quickly and focus on finding the home of their dreams. One of the most common confusions we find first time buyers struggle with is budgeting; knowing how much they can afford, and what buying option best suits their situation. Often, buyers are amazed at what is in reach! In the webinar we’ll help explain what options are available, so first time buyers can hit the ground running in their property search.”
