Housebuilder CALA Homes (North) is inviting those looking to discover their first dream home to a special First Time Buyer Event, for a chance to chat to experts on all aspects of buying a property.

The event will take place on June 26 and 27 June at the housebuilder’s Craibstone Estate development, a tranquil rural neighbourhood located just five miles from Aberdeen city centre.

All first time buyers visiting the event will be able to meet CALA’s experienced sales consultants, who have extensive knowledge of the local property market and will be on hand to discuss every aspect of taking the first steps on to the property ladder.

Guests to the event will also have an opportunity to tour some of the contemporary one and two-bedroom apartments available at Craibstone Estate, each fitted with quality appliances and flooring included.

The team will also be able to talk potential homebuyers through some of CALA’s tailored incentives which can help to simplify the purchase process for first time buyers, including the Help to Buy scheme, contribution towards deposit costs, a reduced reservation fee of £250 and even a £2,000 voucher towards new furniture for a new home*.

There will also be independent financial advisors from Aberdeen’s First Mortgage branch at the event who will be on hand to discuss the mortgage process and answer any questions.

Angela McKay, regional sales manager at First Mortgage, said: “Buying your first property can be daunting, especially if you’ve no one to turn to for advice. We’re delighted to attend CALA Homes’ First Time Buyer event to chat through any concerns or questions about applying for a mortgage.”

“There’s even more opportunities that have opened up for first time buyers, leading to a market that is more open to helping and providing more choice than ever.
