Cambridgeshire Residents See Benefits Of New Build

Posted 7 October 2021 by Keith Osborne

A housebuilder's survey has found the primary reasons people have chosen to buy a new build home...

It’s out with the old and in with the new as residents in Cambridgeshire have named the top reasons they’d choose to buy a new build over a second-hand property.

For many house-hunters, it can be daunting to know where to start when looking for your first, or even your forever home. But a recent survey conducted by Barratt and David Wilson Homes has highlighted the reasons people living in Cambridgeshire would choose to purchase a property from a new build developer.

Reassurance that things won’t break

34% of people in the county named this as one of the top reasons that would influence their decision to buy new.

When purchasing a new build property from Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes, buyers can rest assured that their dream home is built to the highest specification. With award-winning site teams hand crafting the properties with excellence, each home comes with a 10-year structural warranty from the National Housebuilding Council (NHBC). The developer was recently given a 5-star rating in the Home Builders Federation’s (HBF) Customer Satisfaction Survey, meaning over 90% of homebuyers would recommend them to a friend of family member.

It’s a blank canvas

A blank canvas is a very attractive thing for many buyers looking to put their stamp on a brand new property, including 36% of people in Cambridgeshire. Having a space to make your own is a very exciting thing and feeling at home is a very important part of the homebuying journey.

The housebuilder’s Choices and Expressions range allows purchasers to add the final finishing touches to make their home individual. House-hunters securing a home off-plan or at an early stage in the build process are able to specify a range of things from upgrading a kitchen or bedroom, to choosing carpets and furnishings.

Will Phair, sales director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes Cambridgeshire, said: “This survey highlights the fact that new homes generally offer a range of benefits that the second hand market cannot hope to match. It’s no surprise that people in Cambridgeshire have named these top influences in them choosing a new build property and it’s great to see so many people recognising the benefits of these.”
