Nine Reasons to Buy New

March 9, 2022In News3 Minutes

Searching for your first home, your next-step or maybe your forever home? Buying a brand-new property could be the perfect choice.

Here are Deanfield’s top nine reasons to buy new.

  1. Blank Canvas

Every new home is a beautiful blank canvas. There’s no need to update tired décor or replace worn-out carpets. No hidden surprises – just move in, unpack and start creating your own unique style.

  1. Spoilt For Choice

Buy on a new development and you can have the pick of the plots. Purchasing off-plan means you can select a property in the perfect location and select from the different house types available to ensure all your dream property tick boxes are fulfilled.

  1. The Green Option

New build homes are designed and built to the highest standards of energy efficiency, making then more eco-friendly and cheaper to run. The built environment contributes to around 40% of the UK’s total carbon footprint so choosing new is the greener choice – now and for future generations.

  1. Low Maintenance

Buying new comes with peace of mind. With brand new kitchens and bathrooms, newly installed plumbing and electrics and a fresh coat of paint throughout the house, you’ll be able to spend your spare time doing the things you love, not putting right other people’s DIY disasters!

  1. Community Feel

There’s a unique sense of community on a new homes development, with your neighbours all moving in at a similar time. At Deanfield Homes, we build in village locations with a good range of local amenities, so our homeowners also become part of an established wider community.

  1. No Chain in Sight

Because you’re buying your home directly from the developer, there is no upward chain when you buy new. And that means your house purchase is much more likely to go through quickly and smoothly.

  1. Support for First Time Buyers

Buying new opens up a whole host of additional support in buying your home. The Government’s Help to Buy Scheme, for example (which is available until March 2023), helps first-time buyers by providing an equity loan of up to 20% of the cost of the property, with buyers only having to save a 5% deposit to secure a 75% mortgage.

  1. Choose your finishes

If you decide to secure your new property early enough, you can custom design your home as it’s being built – choosing from a selection of walling and floor tiles, carpets and having a say on the extra details like the colour of your kitchen, worktop finishes and door handles.

  1. Ten Year Warranty

When you buy new you buy with confidence. All new homes come with the reassurance of an independent ten-year NHBC warranty.
