The Benefits Of Buying A New Build Home That No One Should Ignore
Looking for a new home is never an easy process. From the decision that you need a new place to live to the discussions about where exactly you would like that place to be, it can be up there with the most stressful moments in our lives! Every promising lead comes with a new set-back, every discussion with an estate agent comes with the knowledge that someone just around the corner might be waiting to snap it up, and global events have meant that the housing market is in a tremendous state of flux. In short, what should be a positive step can really take it out of you.
So, if you’re looking for a new home, why not think about purchasing a new build property? Why spend months on end making appointments to view houses which have had all their worst defects covered up for the duration of your visit when you can be the first person to live in a new home? If you’re at all hesitant, here are a few reasons why you should take the plunge.
You, Will, Be The First Person To Live In This Home
We are perhaps starting by stating the obvious, but this really cannot be overlooked. We have all had the experience of moving into a house or apartment only to spend months wondering what on earth the previous occupants have done to make it so difficult to live in, and why they made half the decisions they made. With a new home, you will be the ones to put your stamp on your living space. If the home is still being built when you buy, then you will know exactly what you are walking into and there will be far fewer surprises when you turn the key in the lock for the first time.
New Homes Are Energy Efficient
There are very few things more irritating than realising that your new home is going to cost you a fortune in bills, but one of the most enticing reasons to opt for a new build is that this is very unlikely to be an issue.
A new home will be constructed according to the most recent building regulations, and as such, they will be significantly more energy-efficient than the alternative. Muir Homes, for example, use energy-saving technologies that make their new builds 30% more energy efficient & CO2 friendly than homes built before 2010.
They Are Safer With Lower Repair Costs
Just as the latest building regulations will ensure that your new home is energy efficient, they will also make sure that they are up to code with the use of fire-resistant materials in their construction and come with all the proper smoke alarms, with safe wiring. We’re sure that the recent scandal surrounding cladding in flats all over Britain can’t have escaped your attention, for example, and with a new build, you will be able to find out exactly what has gone into your home before you buy. They will also more than likely come with the latest technology when it comes to burglar alarms, meaning that you can rest easy at night.
