Last week more than half a million pupils in England found out which secondary schools they will attend this autumn and unfortunately thousands were left disappointed. Housebuilder Barratt North London recently reported that 32 per cent of its purchasers think that proximity to a good school is an important factor when buying a home. So those looking to make a smart move into a family home near a good school really need to be considering a move now.
With applications for next year's intake due to open in September, homebuyers only have six months to sell up and move into an area where they will have a higher chance of getting their kids into the school of their preferred choice. Barratt is currently building a range of family homes in areas located next to excellent schools, including its Templars Gate development in Baldock within the catchment area of The Knights Templar School, where properties are available to buy now and ready to move into ahead of next years application process.
Chris Scarborough, Sales Director for Barratt North London comments, 'Although it is never a guarantee, those who live within close proximity to good schools stand a much better chance of gaining a place there. Our Templars Gate development in Baldock is an excellent example in Hertfordshire where homebuyers are within walking distance to some of the best schools in the country.'
With good schools being a top priority for so many homebuyers in the current market Barratt also helps families upsize through its Part Exchange scheme. Part Exchange allows homebuyers to sell their existing property to Barratt in order to purchase a new and bigger home. Removing the stress of selling a home in the current market, homebuyers are able to make a quick and easy move into a stylish family home in an area of their choice.
Part Exchange is available at Templars Gate in Baldock, Hertfordshire; a stylish collection of three and four bedroom family homes. Prices at Templars Gate start at 350,000. For further details, please either call 0844 8117171, visit the new homes at Limekiln Lane, Baldock, Hertfordshire, SG7 6PG.
