Help to Buy brings the perfect first home as Darren settles in at Otters Reach

Finding an easy route into the property market may seem like a distant dream for some. But for Darren the process could not have been easier. 

“When I arrived at Otters Reach, I met Josh - the Barratt sales adviser. He explained everything I needed to know about buying there - which was very reassuring. It wasn’t a difficult decision at all. And everything went so quickly, especially with Help to Buy.”

“It made it so much easier to secure the finances to own a home here,” said Darren. “And it’s a great house. I have really high standards - and the quality of this property is perfect match. I haven’t been able to find any faults at all. Choosing Barratt has been an excellent decision - and I absolutely love Otters Reach too. The location here in Norton Fitzwarren couldn’t be better.”
