Why Build a New Home?

Whether you're a fan of their fresh exteriors and modern fittings, looking for a safe and secure home to raise a family, or just want to feel like your home is truly your own; new build homes have a lot to offer.


Getting you on the property ladder

One of the main appeals of a new build home is the innovative purchase schemes that are available to help buyers who may otherwise simply not be able to afford to buy their own home. Schemes include shared ownership and shared equity or Government schemes like First Buy and New Buy. Our advisers can help you understand the difference between all of these schemes and how they could apply to your circumstances.


A fresh start

A new build home is fresh, bright and clean, untouched by previous owners and their dodgy DIY! It provides a blank canvas on which to stamp your own style and personality from day one.


Greener and cheaper

Today's new build homes are built to the latest environmental standards, so they are not only better for the planet, but are also cheaper to run. New Homes are six times more energy efficient and generate over 60% less carbon dioxide emissions than older homes. This means that not only are new build homes buyers doing their bit for the environment, they're also saving themselves a significant amount of money. The improved energy efficiency can reduce utility bills by around £500 a year.


The choice is yours

Buying a new build home gives you lots of exciting choices. There are a huge range of developments with a variety of shapes and sizes, from city centre bachelor pads to suburban family homes. You can decorate every room to your liking without worrying about the cost of taking up old carpets or stripping the walls.


Safe and secure

New build homes may also offer increased security and safety, many containing high specification alarm systems as well as being designed with electrical and fire safety in mind, and also tend to be very spatially economic so every inch of every room can be utilised to its maximum potential.


No chain involved

With a new build home, you don't have to wait for the owners of the property to find somewhere to live before you move in. Once you have reserved your property you will be given a completion date so you can plan your move with the reassurance you won't be let down. This removes the house buying chain and the stress and uncertainty that is often associated with moving into a second-hand home.


Peace of mind

The quality of house building construction and service has grown significantly in recent years with almost 90% of home buyers declaring themselves satisfied with their new homes in the most recent industry survey. Many house builders also provide a comprehensive customer-care service and added peace of mind is provided by the 10-year warranty issued by organisations such as the National House-Building Council.
