Buying a new build home - is it right for me?
22nd October 2020
From price, location and mortgages there is a wide range of factors that will influence whether or not a property is right for you.
To help you make the correct decision, we’ve put together this handy guide detailing the benefits of buying a new build home.
New homes are a blank canvas
One of the major advantages of buying a new home is that you will be the first person to live in the property. Your new home will be like a blank canvas and give you complete freedom to customise the interior until your heart's content. In other words, you won’t have to worry about other people’s questionable decorating tastes or DIY flops!
Additionally, if you purchase your home ‘off-plan’ and reserve it early enough in the build process you may have the opportunity to choose the fixtures and fittings, which means your new home will be to your exact taste the day you move in.
You won’t be stuck in a buying chain
The disadvantages of lengthy buying chains are well documented. Thankfully, when buying a new home you’ll be the first owner of the property which means you won’t have to worry about a chain of buyers above you.
Not only does this alleviate the stress and pressure associated with buying chains, it also prevents unnecessary delays and gives you greater control of the end-to-end buying process.
Energy efficient home
New build homes are legally required to comply with the latest building and energy efficiency regulations. To meet the stringent regulations, most new homes feature cavity walls and double-glazed windows to improve insulation and reduce the amount of energy consumed.
There are many ways you can benefit from an energy efficient home, some of which are listed below:
- Reduce your overall energy consumption and carbon footprint
- Your home will retain heat in winter and let the cool air in during summer
- Save money on energy bills
When buying a new build home from a developer that’s registered with the National House Building Council your property will come with a 10 year warranty. Although we hope you’ll never need it, this gives you peace of mind knowing that you will be covered for any defects or structural issues.
Modern living arrangements
Modern Living ArrangementsFrom the latest trends to state-of-the-art technology, high specification new build homes are designed with the future in mind. Many new build homes feature open-plan layouts and offer complete flexibility to tailor the living arrangements to suit your lifestyle.
Another key benefit of buying a new home is that you won’t need to worry about changing old or damaged appliances. This could deliver long-term cost savings as all the appliances are brand new and are unlikely to need replacing for a large number of years.
