Something Old or Something New?

Getting you on the ladder - One of the main appeals of buying a new build home is the government help for buyers, helping you to achieve that dream home you otherwise may not be able to afford.

No one holding you up – With a new build home you don’t have to wait for the owners of the property to find somewhere else to move. This means that you can move in as soon as your new home is completed.

Make it yours - Buying a new home means you also get the option to really personalise it and make it yours. New homes often come with a choice of finishes including kitchens, flooring and tiling all of which are done prior to you moving in. Some will even offer curtain and furniture packages so you can walk straight in and relax in your new home.

Deals with you in mind – Most homebuilders will offer a range of incentives including Part Exchange and Easy Move as well as adding on extras that you can’t get when you buy an older property.

Saves you money – Spend more time enjoying your home rather than doing work on it. New build homes need no maintenance and come fitted out to the choices you made earlier on in the buying process. Having to redecorate, repair and improve an older property can cost thousands of pounds.

Keeps you safe – New build homes now offer increased security and safety. High building standards require new homes to adhere to strict regulations for electrical insulation and fire safety along with modern locks on all doors and windows, alarms and even entry phone systems.

For your piece of mind – Many home builders provide a comprehensive customer care service and all new homes should carry a 10 year warranty. This provides you as the buyer protection usually via The National Building Council (NHBC) for certain problems resulting from any construction issues.

Helping you out – New build homes are built to new stringent regulations meaning they are cheaper to run. New build homes are up to six times more energy efficient and on average generate 60% less carbon dioxide emissions than older homes. This means not only do new builds help to save you money on energy bills but as a new build home-buyer you will be doing your bit to help the environment.
