Today, Crosby Associates Media have added a glossy, consumer magazine title to their portfolio, Homes North.

The debut issue is currently available digitally, through the website, which you can read now at and the print version will be released in the week commencing 18th November 2019 for distribution in supermarkets throughout the North of England.

The distribution partner is ABC approved, so the distribution can be tightly controlled, to allow Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons outlets to hold copies of Homes North in their foyers. Over 10,000 copies of each edition will be printed, and it is available completely free, direct to the consumer, somewhere where most people frequent at least three times a week.

The magazine will focus on First Time Buyers and Homeowners looking to move up the property ladder, as well as the inspirational Homeowner who wants to add value to their home.

The magazine aims to be informative, inspirational and a real asset of knowledge and advice, from experts in the property industry throughout the North of England.

This magazine builds on the foundations of Crosby Associates Media’s highly successful Northern Housing Magazine, which focuses on Housing Association issues and Local Authority business matters at the heart of government policy, therefore expertise in the property and housing field is already established.

The first edition of Homes North focuses on advice for first time buyers, busting the myths that surround the Shared Ownership and Help to Buy national schemes by experts in law and insurance, as well as Phil Spencer, of Location, Location, Location fame who offers his property advice in order to ask the right questions with Move IQ.

Sandy Kelly, Head of Sales at Onward Living, wrote the forward for the first edition and said, “I’m delighted to be supporting the launch of Homes North magazine which will be the only magazine dedicated to first time buyers in the North of England”, as this magazine is a real first, regional alternative to the London-centric housing media world currently available.

Sandy added, “Amongst the current political uncertainty, it’s great to have a specific Northern focus as we continue to increase the number of much needed, new homes being built across the region.”

Crosby Associates Media are confident that Homes North Magazine, will be an essential read for anyone who is looking to get on the property ladder. With key experts, thought-provoking articles, and even a security feature backed by Yale, where you could win your very own indoor CCTV camera, along with style and interior design tips and property lists available right now, in the region, which you would expect from any property magazine; Homes North magazine is already creating a buzz in the industry.

This unique format of being aimed at Northerners, endorsed by Northerners and written by Northern experts, cannot help but inject some much-needed regional attitude and excitement in the heavily London-centric property magazine industry.
