New Homes Week #NewHomesWeek


From 13 – 17 May this year, HBF will be running a ‘New Homes Week’ campaign to promote new build homes.

The overall objective of the Week is to promote to a consumer audience the benefits of new homes with the aim of driving up consumer interest and ultimately sales.

Messaging will include; interior design for a new home – Sophie Robinson will guide our different audiences as to how to make a new home their own through styling, advice on Help to Buy, retirement and downsizing, designing Family Homes, and First Time Buyers.

The campaign will be digitally based, with the main focus being on social media and the New-Homes website . To encourage more engagement, we will be running social media competitions to win a voucher.

Using videos, and our first ever New Homes Week Ambassador, interior designer Sophie Robinson, we will be offering design tips and guidance for all styles of new homes.  Here are the themes for the week.

  • Monday – Interior Design for a new home
  • Tuesday – Homes with Help to Buy
  • Wednesday – Retirement / downsizer homes
  • Thursday – Family Homes
  • Friday – First time buyer homes

We have produced a range of material developed specifically for social media channels that will be available for all to use on various platforms.

Supporting New Homes Week

New Homes Week will have the greatest impact if it is supported by members and their agencies on social media and through regional print media. 

Before the launch of New Homes Week on 13th May, we really want our members to get involved as much as possible. We are asking for blogs and stories on any of the daily topics mentioned above. If you can provide this please contact before 26th April. If you miss the deadline, we might ask you to provide more of a supporting role. More information here.




Social Media Toolkit

We have created a social media toolkit for New Homes Week, we would encourage members to take part each day and promote the messages on the toolkit via their own social media channels.

What is #HelptoBuy? It is an equity loan where the Government lends you up to 20% of the cost of your newly built home, so you only need a 5% cash deposit and a 75% mortgage to make up the rest!#TopFact #NewHomesWeek #NewHome
