Have you thought about buying a new build home? Buying a new build home can present many opportunities such as picking your own décor, access to incentives and more.

There are many advantages to buying a new build home such as:

  • There shouldn’t be any big repairs or redecorating to do as everything will be brand new
  • Most new builds come with a warranty and protection scheme
  • Incentives can be available such as free carpets, help with legal fees and stamp duty, part exchange etc.
  • New homes tend to be more energy efficient
  • A blank canvas for you to make your own stamp on
  • There’s no owners which reduces the chain
  • Safety and security, new homes often have alarms, fire doors etc.
  • Location, new homes are often built where there’s high demand meaning a great and convenient location
  • Depending on the stage of the plot you may be able to choose some of the décor.

Things to consider:

  • You may have to wait for the property to be built and finished
  • Take into consideration hidden costs
  • Check what’s included in the sale
  • Do your research
  • Go along to any open days and visit the show home and always make sure you walk around the whole development
