More than a home

Re-launching in England on 1 April 2021, the government-backed Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme is open to first-time buyers, and finances up to 20% of the price of your home. Wales has its own version, and Scotland has the First Home Fund scheme.
If you can’t afford to buy a first home outright, assistance schemes such as Shared Ownership and Home Reach provide a way of purchasing a proportion of it and paying a subsidised rent on the remainder, requiring a much lower deposit and mortgage.
Older buyers can downsize from a home which is much larger then need to something just the right size on an age-exclusive development which can offer neighbourliness, security, care services and perhaps even some luxurious facilities for enjoyment and fitness.
If you have a big budget to spend, you can find some of the highest quality new homes in prime locations with impressive design, extensive living space, high-end and bespoke fixtures and fittings and some exceptional resident services.
It’s vital to do your house-hunting knowing how much money you need. Not just for the price of the property and what you can borrow, but all the expenses, such as legal and professional fees, Stamp Duty, removal costs – and can you maybe treat yourself to some upgrades? 
The property chain can be a major headache, so if you have a home to sell before moving into a new one, a Part Exchange scheme can make it all much simpler, as the housebuilder will buy your old home from you.

Benefits of buying a new home

Energy efficiency

Household bills are a key part of the budget and the high standards of design and construction required of today’s new homes means they are considerably cheaper to run than a second-hand equivalent – potential savings could be hundreds of pounds per year. Many developers are now incorporating power and heating systems that reduce bills and reduce impact on the environment.

Maintenance-free

Many dread the thought of DIY, refurbishment and maintenance, so purchasing a new build home is an ideal way of avoiding that. With brand new construction quality, fixtures and fittings, not only is there nothing to fix, but there’s a warranty which means that for a period of time after moving in, should something go wrong the housebuilder will fix it for no charge.

Blank canvas

New homes are these days usually finished to a plain neutral shade, so you don’t inherit colours and patterns that you don’t like. You are free to decorate it to your taste. For people who purchase a home at a certain stage of construction, some housebuilders offer a choice of things like kitchen units and worktops, flooring and tiling to personalise a home.

A less-stressful move

Buying from a housebuilder means the property chain stops there, meaning less reliance on multiple parties to coordinate their house move with each other. Schemes like Part Exchange can reduce it even more, as the company purchases your current home and it all happens when the new home is ready to move into. Some housebuilders also run initiatives where on your behalf, they will deal with the estate agents selling your home. If you qualify for something like Help to Buy or Shared Ownership, you’ll have less pressure on the savings and income you’l
