Local housebuilder launches incentive to support Yorkshire’s education professionals

A local housebuilder is supporting the teachers, tutors and lecturers who play such an important role in their communities by launching a new incentive designed to boost their efforts to buy a new home.

Barratt Developments Yorkshire East and Yorkshire West, which has developments across Yorkshire, including The Chocolate Works in York, Drovers Court in Micklefield, Ambler’s Meadow in East Ardsley and Momentum in Waverley, is offering a discount of up to 3% off the price of a new home for anyone who works at a nursery, school, college or university.

The Education Workers Scheme, which is being piloted in Yorkshire, works by granting buyers a £750 discount for every £25,000 they spend on their new home up to £15,000. The discount is designed to ultimately help first time buyers get onto the property ladder as well as those who already own a property to secure a brand new home for a reduced price.

The introduction of the scheme gives something back to the professionals across the region working in the education sector who have faced a challenging 18 months, during which they have had to adapt quickly to school and class closures and the challenges associated with remote teaching.

To mark the launch of the pilot scheme, the housebuilder is also offering £200 school fund contributions for every sale of employees of that school purchasing a home with Barratt Developments in Yorkshire.

Paul Hogan, Sales Director at Barratt Developments Yorkshire East, said: “The teachers, tutors, lecturers and support staff who work in Yorkshire have done a tremendous job in challenging circumstances over the last 18 months, so we wanted to thank them in the form of some extra support for those who might be looking to buy a new home.

Sam Wood, Sales Director at Barratt Developments Yorkshire West, added: “We have a range of properties available for first time buyers and growing families alike, and our sales advisors are on hand to arrange appointments and viewings around busy schedules for anyone eager to find out more.”
