Belvoir Bromley believes in helping first time buyers. Seeing itself as not ‘just another high street agent’ the recently opened estate agent understands the issues faced by this pressurised market place and focusses its efforts on helping others on the property ladder. Supporting first time buyers through a number of ways including building relationships with local developers, mortgage brokers, solicitors and removal firms; Belvoir helps to ease the process for those buying for the first time. Going further still, Belvoir holds regular first time buyer workshops, where it offers free financial advice from an independent mortgage broker where a range of professionals are also on hand. The friendly agent will also accompany buyers on viewings, explaining the buying process and any schemes available to them. First time buyer focussed activity is promoted through its social media platforms, window display, A-board advertising and leaflet drops; making finding out everything they need to know easy. Continuing its commitment into 2018, Belvoir is also working on a scheme to help first timers raise a deposit – watch this space.
This award is for an estate agent that has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help first time homebuyers. Perhaps they have an exclusive service to support first time buyers into their first home or they have attracted record numbers of first steppers this year.
