Eight top reasons why buying a new build home makes more sense

3rd March 2022

There are many reasons why people decide to move house - it could be moving to a new area for a new job, it could be for a new relationship or you need more space for a growing family, or you just want a change! Here’s just a few of the benefits that a new built home has over an older existing property.

  1. It’s brand new and never been lived in before. It’s ready to go and you can start from scratch. Everything is new and squeaky clean – new tiles, flooring, kitchen units and appliances, new bathroom and shower.
  2. It’s a totally blank canvas (literally – with white walls and ceilings) that you can decorate and furnish to your own taste and not inherit someone elses tastes and dodgy home DIY.
  3. More environmentally friendly. Much more energy efficient and lower annual energy bills (up to 70% more efficient than a house built pre 1990) with improved draft proofing, double glazing and modern insulation. Reduced domestic water usage with dual flow cisterns and fitted showers helps reduce your carbon footprint.
  4. With everything being brand new it means fewer repairs and lower maintenance costs.
  5. Additional peace of mind with a 10 year warranty on the property and 2 year guarantee on appliances
  6. Improved safety with fire resistant materials, smoke alarms, modern wiring and the latest technology.
  7. Heightened security with improved security features, locks and lighting.
  8. Ease of purchase – generally new build properties are so much easier and quicker to purchase.
