Balconies come in all shapes and sizes – from the smallest Juliet to the most spacious deck.

Guest Blog: Discover your dream South London home with Peabody
On Saturday 29th September, Peabody, London’s leading housing provider, will embrace a new concept to help first time buyers secure their dream home by hosting an exclusive event that will enable home buyers to view some of the finest Shared Ownership and Help to Buy properties available in South London, each with different values to suit a variety of price ranges. The event follows Shared Ownership Week and the London Home Show, with an objective of helping prospective first time buyers that may have been inspired by the campaign to find their dream home.
Peabody has a vast range of high-quality homes currently available for first time buyers through affordable purchasing routes. This exclusive event will bring prospective buyers along to the show homes of seven stylish developments that have been well-designed, are of high quality and finished to exceptional standards. There will be shuttle buses departing approximately every 30 minutes bringing guests across South East and South West London to see the various properties first hand, which will be a first for the award-winning developer.
Prospective buyers can also expect to be privy to a wide range of benefits on the day. These will include having the opportunity to receive personalised mortgage advice, undergoing a free financial assessment and also speak to a legal team to have any legal queries answered at Q&A drop in sessions. One of the most attractive offers available at the event is any buyers that reserve their dream home on the day, will be gifted £1,000 towards legal fees from Peabody (payable on completion).
There are many reasons why this is a unique opportunity for first time buyers to achieve the next steps of buying a new home. It’s not often developers physically bring buyers along to view a multiple selection of homes and this gives them the chance to see different styles and prices ranges to suit different types of requirements and budgets, as well as face-to-face time with the experienced Peabody sales team to advise and answer any questions someone may have on buying their first home.
Debbie Coombs, Director of Sales and Marketing comments; “We have a huge selection of homes available for first time buyers this year, and we thought what better way to show them what is available within a range of price points, than to bring interested buyers to the developments ourselves. Each development is different and caters for a variety of personal preferences. We hope that on the day there will be some buyers that find exactly what they are looking for – it’s a great opportunity to take advantage of some offers on the day too.”
