A Clean Slate
Compared to a second-hand home where you may have to deal with existing problems left by the previous owner, a new build property offers you a fresh start with no upgrading costs and a blank canvas for you to make your house a home.
Not only can nasty surprises take the fun out of decorating your new home, it can take money out of your pocket too, the average cost of upgrading an older home to the same specification as a new build property is over £50,000. With a new build home, you’ll have no structural repairs, clean surfaces and with all our new Countryside developments finished to a great specification, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy your new home.
There are more ways than ever now to help you get onto the property ladder or to take another step. Help to Buy, is a government-backed initiative designed to help people buy a new home. You only need a 5% deposit and a mortgage for 75% of the purchase price and the Government will contribute the remaining 20% interest free for the first 5 years. In London, purchasers can increase this loan to 40% of the purchase price. We have homes available at Atelier, Beaulieu Heath, St Mary’s Island, and Kings Park with Help to Buy.
Not only could save yourself money in the initial purchase, a new build home could continue to save you money in the long term. Better standards of insulation, draught-proofing and double glazing mean reduced gas and electricity bills, and a more environmental home. In-fact a new build home built to modern building regulations will cost approximately half as much to heat as a Victorian home!
Peace of Mind
New builds are quality-guaranteed with a 10 Year warranty from the New House-Building Council (NHBC) which covers any structural issues that might arise after completion.
Fabulous Modern Design
As for the design of today’s new build homes, they are designed for modern living, often with spacious open-plan living areas, well-proportioned rooms, en-suite facilities, balconies and built-in wardrobes! If you are looking to buy a new home that is a bit different and encompasses modern living, the Whitworth at Abode and Uberhaus at GMV give modern living a whole new meaning.
