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

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.
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

you to personalize your home prior to moving in with choices of kitchen
styles, appliances, carpets, tiles and even garden landscaping.

homes on selected developments, along with the First Time Buyers
