Can you take advantage of the 2019 school application dates

To help you decide if now is the right time to move we are happy to offer you a full market appraisal of your property and the local area to highlight any local school that may help drive up the price of your property.

They go on to say ‘One in four parents with school-age children have either bought or rented a new home to avail themselves of the right address for a particular catchment area and were willing to spend an extra 12 percent on top of the market value of a home for the location.’

We agree with the Independent Online who found that ‘parents are pushing up prices in desirable locations by almost £27,000, according to the latest data on the extreme lengths families will go to in order to secure a place for children at their preferred school’.
 
Typically we see an increase of almost 30% in the number of families registering with us in the first quarter of the year* many of whom are looking to be in place for the admissions opening dates for primary and secondary schools. 

Martyn Gerrard would like to invite you to take advantage of the 2019 school admissions opening dates, as we currently have a surge in families registering with us wanting to live in your area. 


Don’t miss out on this opportunity and let Martyn Gerrard 
help you fulfill your property dreams.
