New developer to make debut at next weekend’s First Time Buyer Home Show

Posted 3 October 2016 by Keith Osborne

A dynamic new developer is showing the buying public its new Surrey development for the first time at a consumer property event next Saturday...

A brand new developer will be making its public debut this Saturday 8 October at the First Time Buyer Home Show, as it brings its range of Surrey new homes to the attention of hundreds of would-be property owners at the Islington event.

Magna Group was founded by two friends, Chris Madelin and Oliver Mason, and the company will be “bringing a touch of Mayfair to the Surrey commuter belt” at the show, which is taking place at the Business Design Centre and will be presenting a whole range of new homes perfectly suited to first-time buyers in London and the South East of England.

The company’s debut development is Magna Riverside, located in Godalming, with a range of 17 studios, and one- and two-bedroom apartments, all of which will feature an impressive specification of fitted kitchens, marble bathrooms and built-in sounds and lighting systems. The government-backed Help to Buy scheme will be available at the development.

Prices start at £195,000 for a studio, £215,000 for a one-bedroom property and £350,000 for a two-bedroom unit. Magna Riverside will be available at a ‘pre-launch’ stage, giving buyers the widest choice of properties from the first phase.

The development is just a stroll from both Godalming High Street and the River Wey, with the town’s station also within easy reach and offering a 45-minute journey into central London. Godalming is in easy reach of Guildford and the A3, and on the doorstep of the countryside and quaint villages of the Surrey Hills.

Madelin says: “I am really looking forward to Magna’s debut at the First Time Buyer Home Show. This will be the first consumer show that we have exhibited at and we are keen to meet with some of key target audience to better understand future buyer needs and wants, as well as gauge visitors’ reactions to the Magna brand and product.

“Magna is the only developer in the UK that is currently offering such luxury specs at reasonable, first-time buyer price points, to include Help To Buy options. We believe that customer loyalty will speak for itself over time as our young, aspirational buyers progress through life and continue to love our beautiful lifestyle homes.”
