Blunsdon case study Yaya

Stress-free move for Linda and Tayfun to Swindon

After settling into their fifth  new home, moving to number six wasn’t something Linda and Tayfun Yaya had on their agenda – until they set eyes on Blunsdon Mead in Swindon.

The couple saw work at the Barratt Homes development progressing well and paid the five-star housebuilder a visit. They were pleasantly surprised and liked what they saw.

“After visiting several building companies in the area, Barratt Homes so impressed and really stood out for us,” said Linda. “Since we already had a property to sell, we looked into the part exchange scheme available for people buying at Blunsdon Mead, “we were very surprised at how they approached us with this scheme, it was all so simple. It was all so stress free.”


Part exchange

Part exchange removes all the uncertainty associated with a move. Barratt Homes is a guaranteed cash buyer, so there is no chain, no under valuing of your own property, no last-minute price haggling and no hidden costs – and people can stay in their old property until their new home is ready.

“From the beginning of the sale to the end, we cannot praise Barratt Homes enough. We have an enormous amount of experience in new property, and the customer care service was exceptional, nothing was too much trouble for them.  We are so delighted with our new property – it felt like home the first day we viewed it.”

Mr and Mrs Yaya’s experience at Blunsdon Mead is not unusual – with Barratt Homes experiencing high demand for its stylish two, three and four-bedroom homes in Swindon.


Final phase

Now in its final phase of construction, Barratt has sold 90 per cent of its homes with the final properties selling fast, highlighting the thriving housing market in the Swindon area and the popularity of homes from Barratt.

Barratt Homes sales director, Andrea Pilgrim, added: “Swindon continues to be an extremely strong market for us and the availability of schemes like part exchange and low interest rates have contributed to success here.

“We have a long history of building new homes in Swindon and this commitment includes the next phase of homes at Wichelstowe which will see us providing new homes in the area for the next 20 years. I’m delighted Mr and Mrs Yaya had such an excellent experience with us at   Blunsdon Mead – and I’d like to wish them many happy years with us here.”
