A new build-home is brand new and is one that has never been lived in before, making it an attractive option when looking to purchase a property. We’ve put together a list of 6 reasons why buying a new-build, could be perfect for you…
#1 - Save on £££
Buying a new-build home can save you a lot of money on renovation costs because they are less likely to require the same level of maintenance that you would face with an older property. Major repairs should be unnecessary for the first few years, which is attractive to those wanting to spend more on new furniture & soft furnishing for their new home. Perfect if you are looking for a blank canvas that is fresh and clean.
#2 - Unpack & enjoy
Another bonus of buying a new-build is that you can move straight in! Simply unpack your belongings and start living without the hassle of renovating or redecorating, which typically disturbs the first few months of you living peacefully in your new home. The hassle-free move-in process also extends to the outdoors of the property, which means you’ll be able to use your new garden straight away.
#3 - Smoother process
Due to the nature of you purchasing a new-build property, it will be empty meaning you won’t need to worry about anyone else moving out before you can move in. Perfect if you’re looking to move quickly or relocate to a new area. Having no chain can often make the house-buying process less stressful as there are only two parties involved, meaning you won’t be stuck waiting for someone to sell a property before you can move into it.
#4 - Off-plan customisations
If you’re buying off-plan (before it’s been built) then this could give you the opportunity to pick certain aspects of the design, such as wooden flooring or carpet. Most developments offer incentives too, so keep an eye out for developers who might offer to pay your legal fees or even your stamp duty.
#5 - Better for the planet
Typically new build homes are more energy-efficient due to today’s building rules and regulations. This means, not only are they better for the environment, with features such as triple-glazed windows and energy-efficient heating, but they help you to save on bills and can also improve your EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) ratings.
#6 - Help-to-Buy
If you need financial help* to purchase a property, there are equity loan schemes, where the government lends you a percentage of the property price. The main advantage is that this type of financial help is exclusively available on new-build properties.
*Please note, you should seek professional financial advice when looking to purchase a property and read the T&C’s for the Help-to-Buy Scheme.
