Residential Market


Research has revealed that over the past year, those planning to buy their first property were more likely to site concerns over their finances as a reason for delaying their home-buying plans (47% compared to other buyer types). With this in mind, Network Homes is thrilled to be hosting a Shared Ownership day specifically targeted at hesitant first-time buyers, this Saturday at Acton Works. Situated in the Old Oak and Park Royal regeneration area, prospective buyers have the opportunity to gain a valuable insight into the financial costs involved when purchasing a home and view a number of Acton Works’ finished homes, as well as the fabulous new show-apartment.

Kalumba Musambachime, Head of Sales and Built to Rent at Network Homes comments:


Many first-time buyers do not fully understand the costs associated with purchasing a home. That’s why, on Saturday 7th August 10am – 5pm, we will be hosting an event at Acton Works where attendees will have the chance to speak to a financial advisor and discuss possible buying options. They will also have the chance to enjoy a guided tour of the development with a delicious, freshly made smoothie of their choice, provided by Ideas Box. We urge interested parties to book their slot as soon as possible.
