Embracing the benefits of a new-build home

February 27, 2024In News4 Minutes

This week we are celebrating New Homes Week by shining a light on the many benefits of new-build homes. There are many considerations when making the decision to move; perhaps you’re considering moving to a rural location for a more relaxed pace of life, maybe upsizing to accommodate a growing family or finally securing your dream home. Here we explore the significant advantages of opting for a brand new property in the ever-evolving UK housing market.

Enhanced Energy Efficiency

Deanfield Homes properties are built to a high specification, with the fabric of our homes already designed to outperform current building regulations. From the high levels of cavity wall and roof insulation to the double-glazed, thermally efficient windows, your home will not only feel warm in the winter and cooler in the summer but will also be vastly more energy efficient than most older homes. With a new build you could save an average of £184 a month on energy, which equates to a massive £2,200 a year, compared to an older property according to recent studies by the Home Builders Federation.

At Deanfield Homes, all properties now under construction will be heated via air source heat pumps and come with EV charging as standard, enabling you to move to a greener way of living.

Simple buying process

Moving home is known to be a stressful experience as there are many things that can delay or jeopardise a sale. Buying a new-build helps to ease this uncertainty, with no onward chain to manage.

Sales advisors act as a single point of contact, helping to guide buyers through the purchase process and managing relationships with experts such as solicitors and mortgage brokers.

At Deanfield, we offer a free, fully managed assisted sale service to help you sell your existing property more quickly, we will even cover estate agent fees.

Complete peace of mind

One of the joys of buying a new home is that everything is fresh and untouched, so no need for renovation or DIY dramas. With sparkling new kitchens and modern bathrooms, newly installed plumbing and electrics there are no nasty surprises.

And for even greater reassurance, all Deanfield homes come with a 10-year NHBC warranty, we are registered with the New Homes Quality Board, a new Consumer Code, and our Customer Service team are on hand to provide extra peace of mind for two years from completion of purchase.

Uniquely you

You can look forward to being spoilt for choice with new builds. Purchasing off-plan means you can choose a property in the perfect location for you and select from many different house types.

Depending on the build stage of your home at reservation, you can even custom finish your home, from flooring and carpets to kitchen colours, worktop finishes and even door handles.

A community like no other

When you’re moving into a new-build home, you’ll be joining a brand-new community. New developments quickly establish group chats, regular meet ups and community events.  Additionally, at Deanfield Homes, we build in village locations with a good range of local amenities nearby, so our homeowners become part of an established wider community.
