Keys to Your First Home – a Skipton Building Society Event

About this Event

Have you been dreaming of buying your very first home, but actually… you don't have a clue where to start? Or you’re already ready to take your first step onto the property ladder but need a helping hand?

Then join us for an evening of free ideas and inspiration for all aspiring first-time buyers. Hosted by Skipton Building Society and a panel of social media influencers who will be sharing first-hand their own personal experiences and top tips of getting onto the property ladder.

Join the experts of Skipton Building Society for the evening and take the first steps to making your home buying dream a reality. You will be joined by renowned personal finance expert, and award winning author of Young Money Blog, Iona Bain and our panel of first-time buyers that have made it happen. Our guests will discuss everything from their journey and the challenges they faced getting onto the property ladder, proving that despite the stigma it is possible to get the keys to your very own home, through to their own home styling tips and interior hacks.

Expect open, honest stories and answers – including the personal challenges and sacrifices each made to save for a first home, across everything from deposits, to furniture and interiors, to financial planning and help in understanding estate agency, solicitor and broker fees.

As well as talks, attendees will also have the chance for one to one personal advice. Choose your dream home in the dedicated ‘property room’, hosted by estate agents, or ‘save with a Lifetime Isa’ in the Skipton Building Society products room - or simply learn more about managing money, in the ‘mortgages room’ and meet and greet our hosts for the evening.

There will be cocktails, food and all attendees will receive a free goody bag.
