Why Buy New

Here are some tips, advice and research on why buying new might be the right option for you:

Move straight in

No upward chain means you can move in as soon as your new home is completed instead of waiting around for long chains of properties to complete. With no immediate work required, take your time deciding and decorate to your own style.

Save money

The immediate need to redecorate, repair and improve a second hand home can run to several thousand pounds. Save precious time and money and add that to developer deals and fuel savings and you're better off in a new home.

As you like it

Many new homebuilders offer schemes for you to personalize your home prior to moving in with choices of kitchen styles, appliances, carpets, tiles and even garden landscaping.

Government help for buyers

Help to Buy offers equity loans for new homes on selected developments, along with the First Time Buyers Initiative these and a variety of other schemes are designed to help new home buyers. More details.

Developer deals

Peace of mind

All new homes should carry a 10 year warranty providing buyers protection either via The National House Building Council (NHBC), or other leading insurance companies for certain problems resulting from any construction issues.

Energy efficiency
