Helen Todd of Stubbings Property Marketing said: “If finding yourself a new home is high up on your New Year “to do” list, then our series of events could see you ticking one resolution, straight off the list. Whether you are looking for a home that boasts a high specification throughout, you are looking to access home buyer incentives to assist financially with your purchase, or you want a home that is energy efficient and low-cost to run, a new home can offer all this, and more.”

So why choose a new build home over a pre-owned property?
High specification: New homes typically come highly specified and are ready for you to move straight into and enjoy.

Energy efficiency: New build homes are built to a high standard and have to adhere to minimum standards for energy efficiency. As a result, new homes can be far more energy efficient, meaning lower utility bills and lower running costs for their owners.

Save on upfront costs: Research has shown that the cost of upgrading an older home to the same specification as a new build property is over £40,000. Everything from new fixtures and fittings, a new boiler, new appliances and brand new double glazing throughout can all add up. If you buy a new home, all of this should come as standard!
Ease of purchase: With new homes there is no upward chain to contend with – helping to keep the whole process straight forward and less stressful.

Peace of mind: New build homes come with a 10-year warranty. Put in place by the developer, the warranty is designed to offer buyers peace of mind that should any defects arise in your new home, they will be put right – so you don’t need to worry.

Help to Buy: This Government backed incentive has been widely used across the new homes market, assisting thousands of home buyers onto the property ladder. Help to Buy is open to both first time buyers and those moving up the ladder. The Government lends you up to 20% of the cost of your newly built home, so you’ll only need a 5% cash deposit and a 75% mortgage to make up the rest. This means you own 100% of your home and you can take advantage of lower mortgage repayments. You won’t be charged loan fees on the 20% loan for the first five years of owning your home. Help to Buy is currently available on new homes with a value up to £600,000.
Added Incentives: With many new build developments, developers offer a range of incentives, designed to assist purchasers with the upfront costs associated with moving home. At our dedicated events, many of the developers are currently offering £5,000 of John Lewis Vouchers for reservations taken at the January events.
