      Why Not Consider a New Build Home?

      Everyone will have their own specific reasons as to why they prefer a new build property. For some it offers the opportunity to own a property that has not been lived in previously. For others it may well be the additional benefits and reduced maintenance that comes with a new build.

      The fact is that new build homes are built to modern building regulations and from the perspective of fuel efficiency and eco friendliness will save you money in terms of fuel savings and maintenance.

      The reality is that as much as 50% can be saved in the running costs of a new build property compared to an older property, due to the inherent integrated improvements in insulation and energy efficient appliances such as central heating and water systems.

      Security is also a benefit, with enhanced specifications and regulations now incorporating fire and smoke alarms as standard. Multi lock door and window systems further enhance the security element.

      Another factor is that a new build home also comes with a comprehensive 10 year NHBC warranty.

      If you are interested in a New Build Home please feel free to call our office on 0131 459 2222 and ask for Gordon McKenzie, our Director of New Homes.
