Developer unveils webinar with Savills, On The Market and Mortgage Brain

Developer City & Country is hosting its first webinar titled ‘Next Stepping in the Current Market’ which is intended to support buyers with practical information about the property market.

The event takes place on Wednesday 31st May at 6pm, while it will be hosted by property and finance journalist and former editor of the Times’ Bricks & Mortar segment Anne Ashworth, with panellists made up of experts from property agents Savills; property search portal, On The Market; mortgage tech firm, The Mortgage Brain; alongside City & Country’s sales manager.

David Cox, panellist and sales manager at City & Country, said: “The webinar is a fantastic opportunity for those buying for the first time, upsizing, downsizing, or otherwise to really get an understanding of what is happening in the market at the moment.

“Demand has been steadily increasing since the beginning of the year and with house prices recently rising for the first time in seven months, we are potentially starting to see a bounce back from the economic turbulence since the mini-Budget; as a result many people are dusting off their previous plans to move – it’s an important time to be informed.

“We would encourage anyone who’s interested in making a move this year to sign up – it’s a great chance to get the very best advice from our experienced panel.”

The webinar will focus on the challenges buyers are facing in the current market, while there will be a Q&A section, with attendees able to submit questions live.

City & Country allows attendees to submit their queries prior to the event through a selection of platforms, for example, via Instagram and emailing

Alex Leigh, panellists and head of office and head of new homes at Savills Chelmsford, said: “There’s no doubt the market has been a little more subdued when compared to the heights of the previous two years or so.

“The cost of living and rising interest rates have forced many buyers to reassess their budgets.

“However I think we’re now starting to see things settle down and return to what you might describe as a ‘post pandemic-norm’.

“Demand remains robust and long-term house price forecasts are broadly positive.

“Reports the government is considering reviving the Help to Buy scheme could also be good news for first time buyers.

“Although some way from becoming a reality, it has at least brought the challenges in the housing market to the front pages of newspapers; the hope being that it may prompt a more balanced debate about housing policy.”
