Homebuyer Show Scotland

Construction News Image
This October will bring the launch of the Homebuyer Show Scotland, an exciting new event for homebuyers looking to make their next move – and the event is set to make its debut in Glasgow.

From frustrated first time buyers to struggling second steppers, growing families and downsizers alike, Homebuyer Show Scotland is the first of its kind in Scotland designed to help any buyer find their next home, arming them with all information they need to make their next move.

The inaugural event will launch in Glasgow on Saturday 19th October 2019 and will be held at the Royal Concert Hall from 10am until 4pm. The show will welcome a range of exhibitors offering property sales and services; from housebuilders and estate agents to mortgage lenders and solicitors, combining to provide a valuable ‘one stop shop’ opportunity for homebuyers looking to make their next move in and around Glasgow.

Matt Colgan, Event Director for Homebuyer Show Scotland commented: "We are very excited to be launching Homebuyer Show in Glasgow this October. In today’s world of online calculators, algorithms, and chatbots, consumers are more likely to become confused and disheartened. We believe that we should never underestimate the value of face-to-face informal consultation where homebuyers can receive impartial, direct and personalised information, relevant to their own personal circumstances.

Potential homebuyers will be able to seek free financial advice in a one-to-one consultation, find out everything about their mortgage options or ask any legal questions they may have – all under one roof.  Throughout the day, key industry speakers will be able to deliver advice on certain topics, including first time buyers, helpful schemes such as Part Exchange as well as explaining the legal process in more depth. There will also be a whole range of properties and new homes to discover as well as finding out about any great deals available on the day.

Matt continued: "We are pleased to be launching the show in Glasgow, an exciting and welcoming city which continues to thrive and prosper. For anyone keen to make their next move here, or escape the rental trap, they will find the show an excellent place to explore all their options, consider new areas and maximise their budget. Moving can seem like a daunting prospect especially if you need to factor in schools, commutes and house prices.  By coming to speak directly to the local experts on the day, homebuyers will be able to save days of time and meet the experts who can provide everything they need to find their new home."

The launch event is supported by new homes property portal WhatHouse.com and leading housebuilding trade magazine Show House.

Rupert Bates, editorial director for www.WhatHouse.com said: "We are delighted to partner in this fantastic event which aims to support and promote homeownership in Glasgow as well as throughout Scotland. The property market in Glasgow and throughout Scotland is holding strong and this is great news for homebuyers whatever rung of the ladder they are on. Events like Homebuyer Show Scotland will see this upwards trend of homeownership continue and give people the right advice to help make their next move, the right one."
