Welcome to our teacher first time Buyers Club

Join Our First Time Buyers Club Exclusively For Teachers

Stepping onto the property ladder is one of life’s big moments, but that shouldn’t mean it needs to be daunting or difficult.

After saving a deposit, it’s natural that the excitement of being ready to buy mingles with nerves over how the process actually works.

Erase the unease: we’re here to guide you. Join our private Facebook group with other teacher first time buyers and share the journey.

Join the Teachers Building Society Homebuyers Club and we’ll walk you through the journey one small, simple step at a time.

What should I expect to receive from the Teachers Buyers Club?

With hints, tips, information and guides, we’ll demystify the buying process and leave you confident, calm and in control, guided by experts with years of experience in helping first time buyer teachers like you.

Join a community of like-minded individuals and share your questions and get helpful information alongside other teachers who are also on the road to buying their first home.

Please note that whilst we offer general hints and tips in this environment, no official advice is given in the forum. This is due to each situation being different and dependent on multiple factors, however you may contact us through the forum to arrange an appointment to discuss your situation directly.
