We hope you all had an amazing week and an amazing easter, to those who celebrate it. We are looking at the new week as a new chance to make the most of amazing opportunities while you can, take the risk, if you don’t, you’ll never know.
This week we are going to talk about, catchment areas.
What does it mean?
In human geography a catchment area is the area from which a city, institution or service attracts a population that uses its service. For example, a school catchment area is the geographic area from which students are eligible to attend a local school.
However, a catchment also includes economical statistics, so you can know the rates of employability in the area that you are searching for.
Let me set you an example, if you are looking in the area of SW17-19 then you have a lot of local schools within walking distance of your desired location, some even at your doorstep.
When schools are considering applications of students, they take into consideration the address of the pupil, if they live too far it would be difficult for the student to go to the school, arrive on time, and also be home with enough time to do what they need to do and rest for a new day, that is why it is always best to look for schools that are close, and easily accessible by public transport if need be.
Within the areas of SW17-19 the employability rates have been at a good rate, considering the pandemic of COVID-19, however, before it was at a very high rate as there were many jobs available, especially ones that you can’t do from home. Although, as things are getting better there should be more job opportunities coming through.
When you are searching for a property, but you would like to see the localities first, you can always come and talk to us and we will make it a lot easier for you if you let us do the research so all you have to do id decide, even if you are looking at many areas, we are always happy to help.
We hope you all have an amazing week and make the most of the sunshine, and the holidays.
Stay safe everyone.
