Croydon Property Show to return in May!

The Croydon Property Show will return next year bigger and better than before.

Hundreds of buyers, renters and investors flooded into the Croydon Park Hotel in September for the inaugural event. And the organisers are hoping even more will pack into to the venue on Saturday, May 18 when the show returns for its second year.

Exhibitors from a number of leading brands from all across the property industry will be in attendance to show off their full range of services.

Bellway Homes, Optivo, Leon House, Red Loft, Pocket Living, Inspired Asset Management, Bairstow Eves, HSBC, Nova Financial, Mortgage Bureau, Des Mortgages and MW Solicitors were among the exhibitors for the inaugural event with all those in attendance confirming it had been a well-run and informative day.

Mario Cabarldi, an investor from Dulwich, said: “It was a really good event. Help-to-buy is an area I’ve not really explored before but it definitely is now. The seminar programme was very useful. Croydon is definitely an area I am interested in. It has so much going for it.”

James Lootuis, who attended the event with his wife and young daughter, said: “We are looking to move home in the next few months. We need a bigger place now that there’s three of us! We spoke to lots of different exhibitors and what was really useful was the range of services covered, we picked up some great advice. The seminars were really good, and it was great to hear about all the exciting plans for Croydon.”

Jamie Kanawaty, 35, a freelance property maintenance contractor who works all across London, was at the event with his partner Kelly Waugh, 32, a primary school teacher in East Dulwich. They currently rent a flat together in East Dulwich.

He said: “We have learned so much about what’s available and what’s happening in Croydon. Everyone is very positive. Croydon is more affordable than East Dulwich and it’s an opportunity to get into the area on the ground level, with all the regeneration works that are happening, and with Westfield coming.

“Croydon ticks a lot of boxes: it’s got good transport links, which is really important for me in my job, because I can be working anywhere.”
