50% of the sold properties at Barratt Homes' Braid Park in Devon have gone to first-time buyers...

Barratt Homes is reporting that half the homes that it has sold at its Braid Park development in Tiverton, Devon have gone to first-time buyers.

Braid Park is providing much needed homes for the Tiverton community with 75% of sales so far going to those who are already living in the local area. Of the first-time buyers, 84% live locally. Nearly a quarter of the properties there are now occupied as construction continues.

The development of 169 two-, three- and four-bedroom Barratt Homes is situated next to Tiverton Golf Course. Prices start at £229,995 and all homes qualify for the government-backed Help to Buy scheme, which has also been a very popular initiative here.

Barratt Homes has seen a surge in interest in the development in recent weeks, in line with a huge increase in demand for new homes nationally following the easing of lockdown restrictions. The number of people registering their interest in a new home from Barratt Developments (including its David Wilson Homes brand) in the South West increased by 60% last month on the same period last year.

The housebuilder offers a special discount is also available on purchases for NHS workers in order to thank them for their hard work and dedication during the Covid-19 crisis, and for members of the UK's Armed Forces.

The three-storey townhouses are proving particularly popular as people's requirements from their home have changed significantly in recent months, with a huge increase in home-working as a result of Covid-19 that is expected to continue for the long term. The open layout and generous room sizes mean the homes can be configured for a range of uses, from home working to hobbies.

Nicki Reid, sales director at Barratt Homes, Exeter, said: “We're delighted to see so many first-time buyers interested in Braid Park and we're proud to be delivering much-needed, high-quality new homes for the Devon community. It's wonderful to see the people from the local area showing such a strong interest.”

The development’s location offers proximity to the shops and facilities of the market town of Tiverton as well as Devon countryside. The M5 and Tiverton Parkway train station are also close by, with links to Exeter, Bristol and beyond.

The show homes at Braid Park are currently open by appointment only and with a full range of safety and social distancing measures in place.
