Share to Buy’s first-ever exhibition outside the capital, the Bristol Home Show will take place at the Mercure Bristol Grand Hotel between 10.30am and 4pm. First time buyers across Bristol and the South West can attend the free event and speak to a range of expert exhibitors, receive free financial and legal advice and attend educational sessions about Shared Ownership and the buying process. Sponsors of this event include leading providers of affordable homes in the region – Abri Homes, Bromford, Guinness Homes and Sovereign Network Group. 

Later in 2024 and into 2025, Share to Buy will announce details of additional live Home Shows popping up in different regions of the country, including their first exhibition in the North West next year.

Nick Lieb, Chief Operations Officer of Share to Buy, comments: “First time buyers need more help than ever in getting onto the property ladder, and expanding our team will allow us to significantly increase our output – both in our operations, particularly outside the capital, and also in our marketing division of the business. We look forward to continuing to work alongside our clients and partners in the housing industry to help the growth of Shared Ownership and other routes onto the housing ladder. Our new hires come with a wealth of experience from across the housing sector and beyond, and are already helping shape the direction of the business.”
