Newly built homes are a popular choice for many customers including first-time buyers, homemovers, those downsizing for retirement and investors. But you’ll also have the opportunity to turn your house into a home by adding your own personal touches.
There are also many attractive incentives offered by housebuilders to encourage people to buy, including ‘deposit paid’, ‘assisted sale’ and part-exchange schemes.
Here are some of the key benefits of buying a new-build property:
Low maintenance. Your home will be highly finished and ready for you to move in, so there’s no need to budget for repairs, renovations or redecorations. Energy efficiency. New homes are built to exacting standards which require them to be well insulated and for all windows to be double-glazed. They often incorporate additional energy-saving features such as highly efficient central heating, low energy lighting and A-rated appliances.
Safety and security. Fire safety is helped by the use of smoke alarms, fire doors and fire retardant materials. New homes also often feature reassuring security devices such as window locks, burglar alarms and halogen lighting.
Peace of mind. Most new homes come with an NHBC 10-year warranty.
