Free event for first-time buyers at Whiteley Meadows location in Hampshire

First-time buyers can find out all they need to know about buying a new home at Bovis Homes’ Whiteley Meadows location in Whiteley at an event this weekend.

The housebuilder is hosting the free two-day event at the development east of Southampton, so that potential buyers can look around selected two-bedroom properties and find out more about the house-buying process and what the possibilities are within their budget.

An independent financial advisor will also be on hand so visitors can ask any questions they may have about getting a mortgage.

Sales Manager at Whiteley Meadows, Lisa King, said: “This is a great opportunity for people who are thinking about buying their first home. By speaking to an independent financial advisor at the event they can make the first steps towards understanding what they can afford and what is possible and they may find that they are in a better position than they thought.

“Financial considerations are also a key part of the discussion about energy efficiency. Bovis Homes new-build properties have energy-efficient features which can save people hundreds of pounds a year compared to the cost of heating and powering older properties.

“The event is also a chance for people to get inspired and start to imagine themselves in one of our stylish and modern homes. Our Hawthorn house type, which has a contemporary open-play layout on the ground floor with French doors leading to the garden, plus two double bedrooms upstairs, will be available to view on the day and it is the perfect place for a first-time buyer.”

Bovis Homes’ new-build properties at Whiteley Meadows have an EPC rating (Energy Performance Certificate) of A or B. Home Builders Federation (HBF) research found that only four per cent of existing properties are at that standard of energy efficiency.

According to the HBF on average the monthly energy bill for a new-build property, including apartments and houses, is around £135 cheaper than for an existing property, and for a new-build house in particular the savings are even greater, with an average monthly saving of £183.

The first-time buyer event at Whiteley Meadows takes place on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 November from 10am to 4pm at the Bovis Homes sales office.
