Here are five benefits to buying a new build home:
1. EVERYTHING is new
When buying a new build home many of the fixtures and fittings you would otherwise have to pay for are included. What you get included varies by development, but everything that you do get will be new and will be covered by a warranty for a period of time.
2. Better for the environment
New build properties tend to be extremely energy efficient, they are well insulated, use double or triple glazed windows and often use energy efficient heating boilers. This is better for the environment, but as a bonus also means your monthly bills could be lower.
3. Property specifications
If you buy off plan some developers might allow you to design certain areas of your new home. For example you might be able to design your kitchen and bathrooms. If you don’t have the opportunity to buy off plan, new build homes tend to be built to contemporary specifications to meet the needs of a modern lifestyle.
4. You don’t need to do DIY
One of the best things about buying a new build property is that it is completely ready for you to move in to, you don’t need to spend your time painting walls, doing DIY or renovating. You can move in and start enjoying your new home right away.
5. Finance schemes
There are fantastic financial incentives such as Help to Buy, which are only available for Buyers who are purchasing a new build home. If you are a first time buyer, Help to Buy could help you to get onto the property ladder sooner.
