Barratt Homes urges home hunters to buy now to avoid school disappointment

Home buyers in South Wales are being encouraged to act now if they want their children to get into their school of choice.

With the summer holidays underway, Barratt Homes has revealed that now is the perfect time to buy a home before school applications open in October.

Richard Lawson, Barratt Homes sales director said: “We know how nerve-wracking it can be when applying for your child’s school placement, especially if your school of choice is often over-subscribed.

“With this in mind, we are urging those who plan to move to their desired catchment area to act fast and choose a home now to avoid disappointment.”

The five-star housebuilder prides itself on creating family-friendly communities across the region, with many being situated in sought-after catchment areas.

One of these is Waterside @ The Quays. Set on the beautiful Welsh coast in Barry, this modern development enjoys an enviable position close to the excellent rated Barry Primary School.

Offering a range of two, three- and four-bedroom homes, the Waterside @ The Quays has seen high interest from families who choose the stylish development for its fantastic location close to local amenities as well as excellent transport links.

Current availability includes the two-bedroom Richmond design, from £195,995, the three-bedroom Maidstone and Ennderdale, from £229,995 and £245,500 and the four bedroom Haversham home, from £260,995.

Richard added: “Many home buyers believe that buying a property can take months. But with our part exchange scheme we can provide a short cut through the moving process, meaning you could potentially move with your family in time to register for your first choice of school.

“The scheme allows buyers to part exchange their current home for a brand new one with Barratt Homes being a guaranteed cash buyer – so there is no chain, no last-minute price haggling and no hidden costs.”
