Since 2013, new home development has been on the rise and it’s easy to see why. Buying a new home is an opportunity for consumers to live in a high specification home and invest in their futures. Whether it’s a new family looking to put roots down in a child friendly home, or a retired couple looking to downsize, new builds offer benefits for all.

1. Design

There is no striping wallpaper or pulling up paisley carpets required in a new home! Developers keep design clean and modern to provide a blank canvas for home owners. The specifications are often far higher than in an average residential building, with various styles and designs available to choose from.

2. Energy

A huge plus point to buying a new home is the fact that they are usually greener and cheaper to run. By increasing energy efficiency, utility bills are often less expensive, while a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions is also achieved.

3. Finance

With the Government’s Help to Buy Scheme and Shared Equity opportunities available, there are many ways a new home can be an affordable option for first- time buyers.

4. Chain

When you’ve fallen in love with a home and can’t wait to move in, it can be frustrating when things move slowly while waiting for the current owners to move out. Because a New Home Owner will be the very first to move into their new property, the process is streamlined.

5. Warranty

Most new homes are sold with the benefit of a building warranty. This covers New Home Owners for a period of up to 12 years against defects that may occur within the structure of a building, as well as cover for the contamination of land, poor workmanship or issues with the materials used.
