Buying a new build home has many benefits. Nothing beats the feeling of a fresh start, but there’s so much more you may not be aware of. Here we outline seven benefits of buying a new build home.

 

INCENTIVES

Most developers will offer incentives and buying options. These can be in the form of deposit contribution, stamp duty contribution, mortgage assistance or help with legal fees – to name a few!

If you’re interested in a new development we have on the market it’s always worth contacting us to discuss the incentives that could be available to you.

 

WARRANTIES

Older homes do not come with warranties. If something breaks it’s up to you to fix or replace.

This is one of the great things about new builds, they all come with a NHBC (National House Building Council) Buildmark warranty covering the cost of fixing damage to structural and weatherproofing damage for a period of ten years - how’s that for peace of mind?

 

SAVE ON ENERGY BILLS

New build homes are built to the latest exacting environmental standards - so you can do your bit for the environment and make big savings at the same time.

It has been said that new homes can create up to 60% less carbon dioxide emissions; which in turn can reduce energy bills by around £500 a year.

 

FREEDOM TO CHOOSE

Reserving a plot early comes with freedom. By this we mean freedom to choose certain fixtures, fittings, layouts and designs.

Many new home buyers will be able to choose their own flooring, tiles, landscaping or colour scheme; meaning your new home will be exactly how you want it!

Stuck for ideas? Don’t forget that there are show homes to give you inspiration.  

 

SAVE TIME AND MONEY ON DIY

With older homes often comes the need or want to fix and renovate. The odd bit of DIY here and there isn’t too time consuming, however these jobs can easily and quickly build up to bigger projects which can feel never ending – not to mention a complete money pit.

With a new build you won’t be spending countless weekends fixing windows, refitting bathrooms or replacing carpets. Save your precious time and money by moving into a home that already ticks all the boxes.

 

SHORTER OR NO CHAIN

Not relying on or waiting for people to move out can take a lot of stress out of the moving process. Your new home will be ready for you to move in as soon as you are.

 

WHITE GOODS INCLUDED

More often than not white goods are included with a new build home. This means you won’t have to worry about fitting a cooker, fridge, freezer, washing machine or dishwasher.
