What's all the fuss over New Homes about?

There are many benefits to buying a new build property:

1. Enjoy your new home immediately

When you buy a new home, you can move in as soon as it is finished.

A fresh slate, you'll find there's no need to spend money or time redecorating and repairing your new home, and some new build house developers even give you the option of designing your new home before it's built. These options help to ensure your property is built exactly to your specifications and taste.

2. Relax, it's a new home

Developers registered with the National House Building Council provide a 10year warranty. Some New Homes developers offer similar guarantees, but from other providers.

You can also avoid the often lengthy process of waiting for detailed surveys to be completed on your new home as your guarantee covers any unforeseen problems. That said, most new homes have advanced security features as standard, including circuit breakers, fire and smoke alarms meaning your chances of anything going wrong are greatly reduced.

3. New homes - efficiency without trying

The average new home is up to 4x times more energy efficient than a traditional 'second-hand' home, due to excellent insulation and the latest energy saving devices. New homes often have lower running costs compared to traditional homes, and provide a more eco-friendly way of living.

New homes are designed to minimise waste and to work in balance with the environment. Most of today's new homes developers strive to create a sense of community within the development by adding parks, play areas, and other features for the benefit of the residents.

4. Location, Location, Location

When choosing a site, new homes developers give careful consideration to access points and the surrounding area. This means that most new homes are built in highly sought-after areas close to shops, public transport and other amenities.

Come move day, there's no need to feel like 'the newcomers' to the neighbourhood - when you buy a new home, everyone's in the same position as you.

5. New Home, Minimum stress

There are no upward chains to consider when buying a new build house, so the whole process is much less stressful and quicker. Some new homes developers even offer part exchange deals to save even more time.

6. Contemporary living for all

Whether you're a first time buyer, retired or have a growing family looking for a larger space, new house builders create new homes for everyone. Most new homes developments have a variety of options for homebuyers including apartments and more traditional homes. Designed to meet the needs of modern day living, the space in new homes is used efficiently & effectively.
