Ham & High Property, part of local newspaper Hampstead & Highgate Express, is a print supplement and micro-site all about property, interiors, and gardening in and around Hampstead and Highgate. This is one of the most affluent parts of London, and therefore often out of first time buyers’ reach. This does not mean we don’t cover the topic, however. We know that many of our readers will have children hoping to get on the ladder and keen to understand how they can help them. Not only have we written ‘How to buy your first home’ guides, we regularly report on government changes affecting first time buyers, and offer comment on the issue.
This award is looking for the best news outlet that provides helpful and useful information, either in print or online, to help first time buyers on to the property ladder. The coverage must reach out to at least 1,000 readers and should provide regular articles aimed to those looking to buy their first home.
First time buyers often look to the media to help them make informed purchasing decisions. It is therefore the responsibility of the team of writers and the editorial team to provide accurate and relevant information through their coverage.
