Research from RICS reveals a third of purchasers do not understand the process of buying a home for the first time, suggesting there’s a significant gulf in knowledge around getting on to the property ladder.*
Determined to support first-time buyers to get the answers they need, leading housing association Catalyst has launched ‘Quiz Catalyst’, welcoming buyers to submit their questions via a series of in-person events and digital platforms this Spring.
Taking to the road for the First Time Buyer Home Show on Saturday 19th March and the London Home Show on Saturday 2nd April, attendees will be invited to submit their questions in the designated ‘Quiz Catalyst’ box. Customers can also submit their questions via the @CatalystNewHomes Instagram account, @HomesbyCatalyst on Twitter, or via email if they’ve registered their interest on Catalyst.homes.
A dedicated FAQ hub on Catalyst.homes will host the responses to the most common questions, becoming a one stop shop for queries about getting on to the property ladder.
