A Swindon housebuilder is offering support to people in Swindon looking to move to a new-build property.

Redrow Thames Valley has highlighted research showing that the costs involved are the main barrier to moving home.

The firm will host a free Help to Sell event at its Swindon development, Badbury Park on Homington Avenue, from 10.30am to 5.30pm over the weekend of 25 and 25 September.

People who visit and begin the process of buying a new home at Badbury Park this weekend will receive up to £5,000 to cover estate agency fees to help take the stress out of moving.

In a recent survey conducted by Redrow, 28 percent of respondents identified moving costs as the main obstacle to changing homes, ahead of the stress (23 percent), the logistical challenges (16 percent) and the emotional implications involved (15 percent) – ranking moving home as a more stressful milestone than having children, changing job or getting married.

Sarah Boyce, Sales Director for Redrow Thames Valley, said: “Whether you’re taking a step up or downsizing later in life, moving house is an incredibly exciting opportunity to start a new chapter in your family’s life. 

“However, it is not without its own stresses and challenges and at Redrow Thames Valley we recognise the logistical and financial implications of moving home. 

“We’d encourage people in Swindon and further afield to visit Badbury Park this weekend, to take a tour of our show homes, and receive the help and support they need to take the next step on their journey to their new home.”

Situated on the edge of the picturesque Coate Water Country Park, yet within easy reach of both the M4 and Swindon town centre, Badbury Park is described as perfect for first-time buyers and growing families alike. 

The development has three and four-bedroom homes available, with prices starting from £385,000. With its own primary school, and five minutes from a secondary school, the development is billed as the perfect place to set up home.
