Budget Bargains With Housebuilder In West Yorkshire

Posted 26 February 2021 by Keith Osborne

There are big savings and special offers on a number of plots at some of Barratt Homes' current developments...

Lockdown has led to a busy property market due to buyers aspiring to things like more private outdoor space and having less obligation for a daily commute to the office. But as Barratt Homes is showing at developments across West Yorkshire, you may not need the budget you think in order to make your wish come true.

St Andrew's Place is in the market town of Morley, on the southern outskirts of Leeds. There’s currently a number of three- and four-bedroom houses for sale there, priced from £264,995 to £399,995. Some good local amenities and a host of transport links close by, the housebuilder has seen keen sales here, but there are a couple of cost-saving deals right now.

Plot 142 is the ‘Chester’, a detached home with garage and two private parking spaces. It has a kitchen/dining room, living room, downstairs WC, family bathroom, two double bedrooms (on with en suite) and two single bedrooms, providing great flexibility as home office, studio, gym or guest room. Priced £322,995, this is currently available with a £9,500 deposit boost and can be purchased via Part Exchange.

Plot 152 is a ‘Maidstone’ three-bedroom house type with a private driveway for two cars. It also has a turfed south-west facing garden. This is priced at £264,995 but the housebuilder will contribute £7,500 towards the deposit and there’s also the option of Part Exchange.

The ‘Maidstone’at Ambler’s MeadowThe ‘Maidstone’at Ambler’s Meadow

East Ardsley is between Leeds and Wakefield and it is here where Barratt is selling three- and four-bedroom homes at Ambler’s Meadow, with current prices from £132,500 to £384,995. Residents here have a range of handy amenities, local walks with plenty of green open space surrounding the development, and great local schools on the doorstep. The M1, M62 and M621 motorways are close by.

The reason for the low starting price is the opportunity for first-time buyers to use Home Reach, a special initiative that will allow them to ‘part buy-part rent’, requiring a much lower deposit and mortgage. It’s available on Plot 230, a detached version of the ‘Maidstone’ house type with lounge, kitchen/dining room, downstairs WC, upstairs, bathroom two double bedrooms and a single bedroom. If a buyer is eligible to apply for the scheme they can start with purchasing a 50%-75% share of the home and paying a subsidised rent on the remainder. This will save thousands of pounds on the deposit payment.

Home of the Week here is Plot 184, which is a four-bedroom home with detached garage priced at £349,995. Barratt is offering a £10,000 deposit boost on this property. Three of the bedrooms are doubles, and bedroom one comes with en suite shower room. Downstairs are a kitchen/family room and a living room, both of which have French doors to the garden, and there’s a separate dining room.

The ‘Bedale’ at St Oswald's ViewThe ‘Bedale’ at St Oswald's View

St Oswald's View is in the village of Methley, just west of Castleford and nine miles from Leeds city centre. The development benefits from convenient nearby shops, country pubs, great transport links, and good schools. You will also have easy access to walks along the River Aire and St Aidan's Nature Reserve, and the village is well connected with major roads. The final units have been released here and two- and four-bedroom homes have starting prices from £209,995 to £416,995.

Savings on Plot 60 are an exceptional £30,000. It’s a semi-detached bungalow type called the ‘Bedale’ which has just had its price cut by £15,000 to £204,995. There are bathroom and kitchen upgrades and flooring included (jointly worth over £5,000) and Barratt is also offering a £10,000 deposit boost.

A Guide To Part Buy Part Rent
Part Rent Part Buy is a scheme you can use with Home Reach where you buy a share of your chosen newly built home and pay a monthly rent on the part you don’t buy. Your budget will decide the size of the share you buy, rather than the size of your home. So, you might decide to buy a bigger share of a lower priced home or a smaller share of a more expensive home.

You are able to purchase your share in either cash savings or by taking out a mortgage. If you are taking out a mortgage to finance your share, you will need to allow for a minimum of 5% deposit. The larger your deposit (typically 10%) the lower your mortgage repayments are likely to be.
