Mulberry Developments celebrates New Homes Week citing seven reasons to buy new

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. A new home is fresh, bright and clean. It’s a blank canvas on which you can stamp your own style and personality.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
