Top 10 Reasons to Buy a New-build Property

Today’s new-build homes offer more benefits than ever before. Architect designed, beautifully equipped and constructed to the latest environmental and building standards. Buying a new home means less worry with less maintenance and less problems.

From speaking to our recent homebuyers, here are their top 10 reasons why they have bought a new-build property:

1.  There's no home like a brand-new home
Moving into a new home is like no other moving experience; newly decorated, fully fitted kitchens and bathrooms (which you can often personalise) and the latest of everything - all as standard!

2.  Less to do equals more free time to enjoy
A new home is a fresh start with none of the previous owner’s dodgy DIY to worry about. You can quickly stamp your own personality on the canvass of a new home. Then you're free to simply enjoy spending your time with your family and friends – not stuck in toolboxes and DIY stores!

3.  Developers want to sell new homes
It makes sense that developers want to sell new homes and in a competitive market they price their homes accordingly. What's more, they (and the government) are keen to help you move with offers and incentives, which save you money, time and inconvenience.

4.  Helping you save money and the environment
With the very latest in insulation, heating systems and double glazing fitted as standard, today's new homes are more energy efficient. This helps you reduce your home's carbon footprint and your bills.

5.  A shorter chain means a shorter wait to move
The chain's a pain if you're buying a second-hand home. But buy a new home and you don't have to wait for the existing owner to vacate which will reduce the stress, uncertainty and time it takes to move.

6.  More home for your money
Today’s new homes are built to a much higher specification than many older homes so you can expect to have included in your new-build, fully fitted kitchens with integrated appliances, modern bathrooms (usually including en-suites) and highly efficient heating systems, glazing and insulation as standard.

7.  Peace of mind designed and built in
Around 90% of new homes buyers are satisfied, thanks to recent improvements in construction and the added benefit of extensive warranties. Organisations like the NHBC* provide 10 year warranties and housebuilders add their own two-year customer care guarantee. (*NHBC: National House Building Council)

8.  Make your new home truly yours
New homes offer a choice of styles, sizes and prices to suit everyone. Plus, depending on the stage of construction, you can often tailor your new home to suit your lifestyle with a selection of fixtures, fittings and finishes or extra items at additional cost.

9.  An investment in your future
Although you shouldn't over-stretch your finances or speculate on short term house price movements, owning your own new home is one of the best investments you can make providing peace of mind and a valuable, long term nest egg.

10.  There's never been a better time to buy a new home
Start your search with Simply New Homes and you’ll find lots of help out there. From fully furnished show homes open seven days a week and experienced on site sales advisers, to a range of incentives available from developers and government, it's never been easier to choose a new home.
