On Saturday 4th November, Alex, Matt and Kevin went to the Help to Buy South show at Alexandra House in Swindon.

There was a great atmosphere as we walked in to see that our brand new Christmas stand was up and grabbing everyone’s attention (as you may know, Aster don’t do things by halves). Part of the set was a Christmas themed living room, complete with festive wallpaper, a Christmas tree, Aster baubles and personalised stockings for each member of the team. The other half was set out like a kitchen, with bar stools to sit and have a chat about our upcoming developments.


As anticipated, there was a steady stream of people throughout the day keeping us busy from 10am until doors closed at 3pm. It was lovely to see so many excited faces looking to get onto the property ladder, and it’s a great feeling knowing that we could be helping them to achieve that dream. We handed out lots of brochures all about shared ownership, and registered lots of people for our upcoming developments in Swindon and Devizes. Wiltshire is a very popular county and we knew that Swindon especially would have a high demand! Our two developments coming soon to Devizes, Lay Wood and Hambleton, both received quite a bit of attention too, and we are hopeful that these properties will be gone very soon after their launch (approximately January 2018).


Even though our stand has been changed to suit the festive season since the help to buy show in Oxford, one thing that remains the same is our ever-popular photo booth. Customers have the opportunity to sit in a big armchair next to the fireplace with Santa hats on, and have a photo taken in our living room set. This always seems to attract attention, especially from children, who then get to take a nice shiny photo home with them (as well as a candy cane or two from under the tree). Not only with customers does this prove popular, but also many of the other exhibitors were coming over in groups to have festive photos – what a great way to get into the Christmas spirit!


The day was a great success, and we enjoyed meeting so many potential shared owners! Did you miss us at the show? Don’t worry – we are here 7 days a week to help you buy a home! Get in touch with us today or click here to see our Wiltshire properties.
