The Benefits of Buying a New Home

The Benefits of Buying a New Home


If you’re a first-time buyer, there are several advantages to purchasing a new build home. We’ve outlined a few of the benefits below.  


1.     Move in when you’re ready

As the first owner of a brand-new home, you won’t need to wait for the previous tenants to move out before you can move in. Buying a new build home also means you can enjoy your new home straight away, or move in on a date that best suits you. 


2.     Fully fitted kitchen and bathrooms

All of our Shared Ownership properties come complete with the essentials, such as a cooker and washing machine, shower and toilet. Plus, all appliances fitted are brand new and of the highest quality, meaning you don’t have to spend a fortune on kitting out your new home.


3.     Low maintenance 

As all the appliances, fixtures and fittings are brand new, it’s likely you won’t need to complete much ongoing maintenance for at least the first few years when you move in, which is a big advantage over buying an older property.


4.     Energy efficient 

New build homes are six times more energy efficient than older properties, as flooring, walls and windows have been installed with modern insulation. This means that buyers of new build homes will benefit from reduced energy bills, while also reducing the contribution to global warming.  


5.     Make it your own

When you buy a new build home, its pristine interiors will be a blank canvas for you to put your own stamp on from the start. When purchasing a home through Shared Ownership, you become a leaseholder, which gives you the opportunity to decorate your home as you wish. 


6.     Incentives 

Many new build homes offer the best chance for first time buyers to get onto the property ladder. This is due to helpful schemes such as Help-to-Buy and Shared Ownership, which are only available for new build homes. To find out more about Shared Ownership, visit our website.
