Five reasons to choose a new home in the West Country for 2016

As 2016 gets underway attention moves to a fresh start for the New Year and Barratt in Exeter is highlighting five powerful reasons why buyers should choose a new home for 2016.

With a range of developments across the region - from one bedroom apartments to five bedroomed family homes - there’s a huge selection from which to choose.

Barratt sales director Sara Parker said: “The New Year is traditionally a time to look forward and there’s no better way to re-energise your life than buying a new home. Traditionally it’s one of our busiest times of year so we’re gearing up for a busy time at our developments throughout the West Country.”

“There’s a host of reasons to buy with us from schemes such as Help to Buy to the peace of mind of our five star status, for anyone reserving before the end of January, we have some extra reasons to make that move in 2016.’’

The top five reasons to reserve a Barratt home in January:

1. Special New Year deals – Reserve a home before the end of January and Barratt will pay your legal fees.

2. Help to Buy

Help to Buy aims to help stimulate the housebuilding industry and to help people buy a new property. It is available to first time buyers and those moving up the housing ladder. The scheme enables buyers to secure a mortgage with just a five per cent deposit. Buyers are able to take advantage of the excellent interest rates available with mortgages of less than 75 per cent of the property value.

3. Part Exchange

Barratt’s popular Part Exchange scheme at selected developments can help take the hassle out of moving home. The Part Exchange scheme makes moving home simpler because you have no estate agent fees to pay: Barratt is your guaranteed cash buyer and you get fair market value for your current home based on two independent valuations. As an added benefit there is no chain, no last-minute price haggling and no hidden costs – and you can stay in your old property until your new home is ready.

4. Five-star housebuilder

Barratt is the only major housebuilder to have been awarded the maximum five-star rating in the Home Builders Federation customer satisfaction survey for the last six years.

5. Independent financial advice

Because of ongoing reform within the financial services industry, the process for securing finance has become much more detailed. This need not be off putting for those looking to apply for a mortgage, as most major housebuilders like Barratt are now able to provide a free independent financial advice service to customers.
