My partner and I are really keen to purchase a Barratt home in a new development they're building near us. In order to get onto the waiting list, we need to have had an offer accepted on our property, so it's going on the market next week. Our issue is this - we have no idea how long the waiting list currently is, and from our conversation with the lady at Barratt Homes, she said they have a around 4-5 of the houses that we are looking at, being released in June/July for sale ready to move into in November/December next year. When we have sold our property, we will need to move in with my parents for a while and let somebody else look after our dog while we are living there. The problem is that we don't even know if we'll be high enough on the waiting list to secure one of the houses in the Summer, meaning we might have to wait until the following year for the next phase! We don't know what to do as we don't want to be living with my parents and without our dog for any longer than we have to, so my question is are Barratt Homes very popular and is there a strong chance of the waiting list being quite long do you think?
