Buying a new build home offers a host of advantages compared to older second-hand homes. To mark each day of New Homes Week, here’s Mulberry Developments seven reasons to buy new.
- New research carried out by the Home Builders Federation has found that the cost of upgrading an older property to the same standard as a new build home could be as much as £50,000.
- New homes are built to a much higher specification than the majority of older homes, so you get more for your money. Double glazing and high quality finishes are included as standard in a Mulberry Developments new home including fitted designer kitchens with a generous range of integrated appliances, luxury ceramic floor tiles across kitchen/dining and ground floor wet areas accompanied by Amtico Spacia flooring to all bathrooms and en-suites.
- On average, new homes are 65% more energy efficient than a Victorian house of the same style. Just 26% of second hand properties achieve an energy efficiency rating of A to C, whilst 100% of Mulberry Developments meet these standards.
- New homes currently built in the UK are estimated to be roughly 50% cheaper to run per year than the equivalent Victorian house. That could mean an annual saving of around £1,500 for a four bedroom detached house.
- A new home is fresh, bright and clean. It’s a blank canvas on which you can stamp your own style and personality.
- Today’s building regulations ensure that new homes are designed and constructed to a minimum standard: older properties may not have been built to the same exacting requirements. They are continually being improved and strengthened, giving you a top quality home.
- To help make your dream home a reality, you may be offered assistance through Help to Buy, Assisted Move and other bespoke individual buying packages to suit your individual criteria and provide a hassle free buying experience.
