Dundee market focus of first DJ Laing webinar on online property purchases
Tayside property developer DJ Laing Homes has launched a new series of online webinars aimed at helping home buyers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The webinars aim to look at the different options and changes in buying, financing and government initiatives when buying a new home.
The first webinar in the series is their Dundee Property Market Update in partnership with Darren Leahy, partner at law firm Lindsays, along with Karen Nicoll, managing director of DJ Laing Homes.
Mr Leahy and Ms Nicoll will provide practical advice and guidance on buying a new home and any related issues and changes due to the current situation along with information on our new build developments.
These webinars will provide real value for prospective home buyers who are looking to buy a new build property in the near future and will explain key updates following the COVID19 situation. Further webinars will follow in partnership with CARA Mortgages Services covering key topics.
Ms Nicoll said: “DJ Laing Homes has enjoyed strong sales performance since the market re-opened within Dundee, with many buyers taking advantage of the extended Help to Buy Scheme.
“Our clients have been taking the opportunity of a variety of finance options including Help to Buy funding which is available for new properties below £200,000. The new ‘First Home Fund’ will also allow even more first time buyers to get on the property ladder and continue to boost the Tayside property market.”
Mr Leahy said: “We know that the pent up demand from the lockdown period has indeed materialised in the market. At Lindsays, we have seen a huge flurry of interested new buyers. At this stage it is difficult to say for how long this will continue, and much of it depends on what happens in the wider economy as we begin to open up and recover from the COVID-19 outbreak.
“There’s no doubt that the changes in Land and Buildings Transaction tax will boost demand and encourage people to make a move they’ve maybe been considering for a while. Overall our team expects a busy summer working with buyers and sellers. We’re delighted to partner with DJ Laing in this new webinar series to help get new buyers on the front foot.”
DJ Laing’s first Dundee Property Market Update Webinar will take place on Thursday at 6.30pm via Zoom and will also be live-streamed on Facebook and Youtube.
There are a limited number of places available. Full details of the webinar and how to book a space in advance are available from the DJ Laing website.
