Advantages of buying a new build
Just like everyone has their own style when it comes to fashion, it’s the same when it comes to houses. Some people prefer period houses that have character and unique features, whereas others might prefer a new build property with a clean, modern look and feel that you can make your own.
For those of you who might be caught in the middle somewhere, weighing up the pros and cons of both, here are some advantages you can be sure to receive if you decide to buy a new build.
Help to buy schemes
There are various Help to Buy schemes available to you, including:
Help to Buy: Equity Loan
Help to Buy: ISA
Help to Buy: Shared Ownership
One of the most stressful parts of moving house is being caught in a chain and everything is out of your control. With new builds, you aren’t at the mercy of other buyers and the house is ready to move into straight away as you aren’t waiting for previous owners to move out. This ultimately reduces the amount of uncertainty often associated with moving house.
The only hold up you might have will be with the builder. Effectively, you can move as quickly as the builder can build the house.
Put your own stamp on it
The property will be untouched by any previous owners, leaving you with a blank canvas to work with and style up as your own.
When you buy a new build house, you’re protected by a home warranty. This means you can relax knowing that should anything untoward happen, you’re covered for up to 10 years.
The day to day running of a household can be quite expensive once you’ve broken it down by electricity, water rates, heating etc. All new builds are built to the latest building standards, which includes:
Low CO2 emissions
New builds are now roughly 50% cheaper to run than much older houses, this could equate to an annual saving of £1,410 for a 4-bed detached house through to a £440 saving for a 1-bed ground floor flat.
New build houses are built to an excellent quality, from the new fixtures and fittings to lightweight trusses in the roof, double glazed windows and insulated walls.
The builders also work closely with local planners and the Environmental Agency to ensure they are creating a development that isn’t at risk of flooding.
