Six reasons to go new build

There’s nothing more exciting than the prospect of a new home, and if you’re about to embark on this journey then you’ll understand how difficult finding your dream home can be.

With lots of things to consider, from size, location, garden space, and most importantly your budget, it can be harder than you think to find something that truly feels like home. So, with that in mind our Sales Director, Jo Winston, has pulled together six reasons why a new build property might be just what you’re looking for.

1. Brand-new everything

With new builds comes brand-new appliances, including everything from showers and sinks to ovens – all fitted ready for your arrival.

So, you can rest assured that they’ll all be in working order ready for you to start making your house a home. Plus, thanks to our warranty, you’ll have a two year guarantee on items supplied as part of your new home*.

2. A blank canvas

A new-build home is a blank canvas for you to add your own creative flair. With no previous owners, there’s no stubborn wallpaper to strip or statement walls to paint over.

You have full control to put your very own stamp on exactly how your envisioned your new space to look, allowing you to add those all-important personal touches!

3. A touch of personalisation

New-builds have a certain stigma attached to them that you’ll end up living in the exact same house as your neighbour – but that really couldn’t be further from the truth.

We offer optional upgrades that allow you to add a touch of personalisation to your home before you’ve even got the keys. Whether it’s a walk-in-wardrobe or kitchen cabinets  that suit your style – there are plenty of options that allow you to create your dream house exactly as you envisioned it. Opting for these upgrades at an earlier stage will also save you money in the long run, as you won’t need to invest in it further down the line.

4. Modern living

All our properties are built with today’s living in mind. They are purposely built with open plan, multi-functional rooms that ensure natural light beams through. What’s more, new builds incorporate family needs and allow for more flexibility when it comes to home or hybrid working.

Plus, you’ll usually have much easier access to the outdoors – with features such as large patio doors and floor-to-ceiling windows, and developments having designated open green spaces for the community to enjoy. And you can put your mind at ease knowing it’s all been built to the highest standards too, as all new-builds have to meet certain building regulations and requirements.
