The Pro’s Of Buying A New Home

Thursday, February 4, 2021

At Stones Residential, we are very excited to be launching a New Homes Department. The challenges of doing so during the pandemic have made for an interesting time, but we believe new homes are ideal for many property buyers.

We aim to provide a high standard of service to every client, and through speaking with many prospective buyers, we believe the benefits of a new build property appeal for many reasons.

We would like to take you through the pro’s of buying a new home.

You are not part of a chain

One of the biggest risks in buying property comes with being part of a chain. Countless property transactions have collapsed through no fault of the buyer or vendor.

Rather, a collapsed deal which is further down the line can impact on many buyers, and it creates considerable frustration and concern.

With a new build property, you don’t have this concern. As soon as your finances are arranged and in place, you can look to complete the purchase.

This removes a lot of the stress, giving buyers one less thing to worry about.

There is less maintenance required with a new home

New build properties are completed to high standards and regulations. All being well, you will not have to worry about repairs for some time. Also, the property is covered by a 10-year warranty, so you have peace of mind in the event of any structural defects.

Also, most property builders provide a warranty, so you can feel confident about buying a home.

You can influence how the finished property looks

If you have a vision of what you want your home to look like, you will want to have more of a say about how the home is finished.

If the property is still in the process of being built, you might be able to choose your own finishes, which means you directly influence the flooring, tile colours and all manner of minor alterations.

This level of influence isn’t always available, but if you buy early on the building process, you have a chance to offer input to the process.

There is help available to buy new property

A very good reason to consider a new build property is there is specific financial support on offer to purchase this style of home. With Help To Buy, you receive assistance in saving for a deposit, and this might help you step onto the property ladder faster than you would in other circumstances.

New build homes are more energy efficient

Energy efficiency is a crucial factor for many households, as it helps lower the cost of energy bills. Also, it plays a part in saving the environment. Therefore, there is a growing number of people looking to be energy efficient at home, and new build properties are developed with higher green standards in mind.

Don’t you love new things?

One of the most appealing aspects of buying a brand-new home is that everything in it is clean and new! You get to be the first person or family living in the home, the first people creating memories and having a great time.

For many households, this is a special feature, and a massive factor in why a new build home is so attractive.
