Why buy new
New homes are usually built in the up and coming areas, where new communities are being created and it’s great to be a part of that, especially if you’re new to Swindon. Or it can just be a fresh start – a home that is immaculate, bright, clean, spacious and untouched by previous owners and their dodgy decorating and DIY! It’s a blank canvas you can stamp your own style and personality on from day one.
The price is right
Most new homes are priced to sell quickly and often come with great incentives such as cash back, free appliances and help with moving costs get throw in as part of the deal – as if you were getting a great value house for your money anyway.
Greener and cheaper
If environmental concerns are part of your moving criteria then a new home will fit the bill – and that bill will be considerably less than you might be used to, as these homes are built to the latest environmental standards. They are much more energy efficient and generate 60% less carbon dioxide emissions than older homes. This can reduce utility bills by more than £500 a year. Better for the planet and the bank balance.
You can move into a new home as soon as it is complete. There’s no need to wait for existing owners to move out. This reduces the house buying chain and the stress and uncertainty that is often associated with moving, particularly into a second-hand home.
More for your money
New homes are built to a much higher specification than the majority of older homes so you get more for your money. They have central heating, double-glazing and high standards of roof, floor and wall insulation all included in the price, usually with standard features including fitted kitchens with integrated appliances and stylish bathrooms and cloakrooms.
Peace of mind
With housebuilders providing a comprehensive customer-care service and added peace of mind from the 10 year warranty issued by organisations such as the National House-Building Council (NHBC), there is a great sense of reassurance that comes with a new home.
Spoilt for choice
Whether it’s a one bed apartment or a five bed detached, there’s usually a new home for everyone and with a 7 day a week showhome viewing service, it’s much easier to find the home of your dreams – especially if you take advantage of a bespoke service to choose the fixtures and fittings to suit your lifestyle.
