London’s largest event for first-time buyers is set to return on Saturday 18th September with 46 exhibitors all under one roof. Held at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre in Westminster from 10:30 AM to 5:00 PM, the London Home Show is a one-stop-shop for first-time buyers looking to learn about Shared Ownership, Help to Buy, and all things affordable homeownership.
Hosted by Share to Buy, the UK’s leading online portal for Shared Ownership properties, the London Home Show successfully went digital for the first time earlier this year, following a pause in in-person events, with the Virtual London Home Show welcoming over a thousand budding buyers. Since lockdown, the autumn 2021 show will be the first in-person London Home Show and is expected to welcome thousands of budding buyers seeking information on homeownership in the capital.
A new offering for the show this year, a series of first-time buyer workshops, will be taking place throughout the day, giving visitors a chance to learn about the different home-buying options available to them from a range of industry experts.
The free exhibition will offer potential buyers unprecedented access to some of the housing industry’s biggest names and showcase the best affordable homes available across London and the Home Counties – including thousands of properties available through Shared Ownership and Help to Buy. The event will also offer quality rental alternatives, including London Living Rent and Build to Rent.
In addition to the new series of workshops, visitors will be able to attend live Q&A sessions with industry experts covering everything from understanding Shared Ownership and Help to Buy eligibility criteria to perfecting your credit score. Independent mortgage advisors and solicitors will also be on hand to offer free financial and legal advice and answer purchasers’ questions about the buying process.
Partnering with the city’s leading housing providers and sales agents, sponsors of the event include L&Q, Latimer by Clarion Housing Group, Peabody, SO Resi by Metropolitan Thames Valley, Southern Home Ownership, Catalyst New Homes, Notting Hill Genesis, Countryside Properties, Galliard Homes, Red Loft, JLL and Savills. In addition, all exhibitors will have their own stand, making it easy for hopeful buyers to get their questions answered directly by sales teams.
