Buying a new build home can be a fantastic choice for many reasons. Firstly, when purchasing a new build, you can be sure that the property has been built to the latest standards and regulations. This means that you are unlikely to encounter any of the issues that can sometimes arise with older properties.
Additionally, new builds are often built to be energy efficient, using modern insulation and heating systems to keep your home warm and your energy bills low. Research based on Government EPC data coming out of 2022 has found that buyers of a new build house will save on average around £2,600 a year in energy bills, with the average annual running costs for a new build totalling £1,500 as compared to an average of £3,570 for older properties. Many new houses benefit from air source heat pumps which are more cost efficient and eco friendly than traditional boilers. They also have a longer lifespan and are easier to maintain than traditional boilers.
When you purchase a new build home, you are also likely to benefit from a range of warranties and guarantees. Most developers offer a 10-year warranty on their properties, which can give you peace of mind knowing that any issues that arise during this time will be covered. Additionally, new appliances and fittings are likely to come with their own warranties, ensuring that you are protected against any defects or faults.
In the current climate it is more expensive than ever to renovate a house, so perhaps one of the most appealing aspects of purchasing a new build is that it is ready to move in without doing any work. Everything is new and unused meaning you won’t have to worry about replacing old carpets or dealing with outdated decor, as everything will be fresh and modern. This can be a great way to start your new life in your new home, without the stress and hassle of dealing with any existing issues.
From the peace of mind that comes with knowing your property is less likely to need expensive work doing to it, to the cost savings on your energy bills, there are many advantages to buying a new build.
