About

The First Time Buyer Network is an initative of Consumer Property Ltd who have over 15 years experience in the property market. Back then as first time buyers we found it difficult to locate a good reliable and impartial source of advice and eventually ended up choosing a mortgage for our first home with an interest rate of nearly 10% !!!

The company was formed by a husband and wife team to purchase quality, affordable property for the rental market - especially for first time buyers who could not raise the finance to buy.

We have gained much experience over the years and have subsequently established ourselves within the Industry.  One of our important remits now is to provide sources of advice, guidance and support for first time buyers in their quest to get a foot on the property ladder.  Ed Francis, Director of the company, is also a property mentor and talks at property events around the UK.


The aim of the first time buyer network is to empower first time buyers through the provision of investment advice, guidance, incentive schemes and support services - resources supplied by experts within the industry. We have spent a number of years in the property rental sector supplying discounted and below market value properties to investors. These investors invariably rent to those without a deposit, typically first time buyers. Our view is that by supplying these properties to first time buyers we can not only help distressed sellers (and there are many in today‚Äôs market with repossession rates rising fast!) but also provide  fantastic opportunities for first time buyers to get on to the ladder with little or no deposit. This can be done through a combination of rent to own schemes and deposit paid strategies. Our target audience is typically first time buyers at home with parents with or without a deposit and renters looking to get on to the property ladder.

We advertise on various partner sites using banners, links, and conventional off-line advertising. Part of the revenue generated from affiliate links is re-invested in marketing and incentives schemes which we pass on to our members.

What is our Mission?

Our aim is to help every first time buyer in the UK get on to the property ladder. This will allow us to improve the content and quality of the site and enhance the provision of services offered. We don't believe in making profits at the expense of our members therefore you share in the benefits of our advertising.
