Why buy a new build home?

Posted 10 September 2015 by Keith Osborne

What are the reasons why house-hunters should consider buying a new build home?

A new build home offers you so much more

More buyers than ever before are realising that with a new home you receive so much more than you would with an older property.

For one thing, as the very first occupier, it's a home that has only belonged to you and no-one else. If you buy off-plan, you can even have a say in extras such as fixtures and fittings, flooring or garden landscaping. With a new house you can also take pleasure in knowing it will have the latest specifications such as being more energy efficient and have the latest security measures. You'll have far less repairs with a new house than with an older property. Then there is the 10-year warranty you receive which covers any building defects found in the property during that time.

These are just some of the benefits that a new home can give you, and new build homes are also situated in stunning locations right across the UK. Buying a new home has become the only choice for so many and we think the more you find out about new homes, the more you'll understand why. 

A new home, a completely new start

You have enough to worry about when moving into a new property without having to fix cracks, broken hinges and all those other things you have to do when moving into an older property.

With a new house it's all brand new. You're the first home owner, the property's only ever occupier. It's a completely blank canvas where you can make your designing dreams become a reality. When buying off-plan, you can have certain design ideas you have in regards to fixtures and fittings carried out before you move in. No more do you have to worry about moving furniture around in order to decorate.

By buying a new home, you're buying a custom made property that already has your personality and style in every room of the house. For many, buying a second-hand home just isn't good enough nowadays, buying a new home is the only way to go. 

Wanting to buy your first home? Buy a new home

In addition to the property itself being built to an exceptional high standard, buying a new build means you get many other benefits too. Many government schemes such as Help to Buy are exclusively available to new home buyers. Help to Buy: Equity Loan, for example allows you to receive a 20% loan to add to the deposit when you put down an initial 5% deposit. You can also take advantage of discounts given by builders and developers wanting you to buy their new house instead of going elsewhere. 

New homes gives you an unbeatable choice of UK locations

Across the UK you'll find a wide range of exciting new build developments happening. Each development has its own individual character whether it’s in the centre of a major city to a rural location which allows you to enjoy the best of the British countryside. Some new build homes are at the cutting edge of innovative architectural design with many being award-winning developments.

Perhaps you would like to relocate to a riverside development or be in the middle of a bustling city like London, Manchester or Glasgow? Maybe you would like to have the best of town and country or just experience complete rural living, and it's new houses which give you that opportunity?

Search now and see for yourself how a new home is more likely to be your dream home than any other type of property.
