The mortgage advice bureau team will also be on hand to offer free financial advice to those looking to buy their first home. Anyone who reserves a property over the exclusive weekend will receive free family swim vouchers for Perth Leisure Pool, which boasts training water, leisure water, flumes, a gym, health suite among other state of the art facilities.

Urban Union's Muirton, Perth Show Home - bedroomNeil McKay, managing director of Urban Union, said: “Taking your first step onto the property ladder can be a daunting process however our First Time Buyer weekend at Muirton has been designed to make the process much simpler.

“We hope that by providing a better understanding of the mortgage process we can simplify things for house hunters to ensure that their first experience of buying a home is a positive one. However, our special offers are only available for a limited time so I would urge anyone considering buying their first home to join us for more details.”

The development is set within close proximity to Perth’s town centre with easy access to public transport links and sits within the catchment area of five local schools, both at primary and secondary level.
