10 great things about buying a new build
Here at Mishon Mackay, alongside our seven offices, we’re very lucky to have a specialist New Homes department. Our New Homes team is based in our Hove office, but they cover areas across both East and West Sussex. Tom Hamilton, our New Homes Sales Manager, has put together just some of the benefits of why you should pick a new build:
- It’s a blank canvas
No one has ever lived there before which means you can put your own stamp on it. You can move in and not have to touch a thing or, the complete opposite, and decorate to your heart’s content. Owning a new build is like buying a new car – it’s brand new and in great order.
This fantastic home is ready for you to make it your own.
- Eco features save you money
All new homes are built with the environment in mind. For example, they may come with solar and PV panels, electric charging points for your car, low energy appliances and efficient boilers.
These properties have access to a communal electric car charging point.
- Help to Buy
Many new builds often have the government’s Help to Buy loan scheme available, meaning that, in most cases, you’ll save a smaller deposit to move into your dream home.
The Help to Buy scheme is available for these fantastic homes.
- No onward chain
You’ll either be at the end of the chain, or as a first-time buyer or renter, you’ll be chain free. A private vendor might change their mind – but a developer won’t.
This home is ready to move in to.
Occasionally you will have a choice of the colour palette in your new home, so that you can put your own stamp on it before you’ve even moved in.
Early purchasers have a choice of worktop, backsplash and carpet colours.
- Benefits from developers
With the show home now launched, we’re able to offer stamp duty paid until the end of October.
- Modern layouts
The fourth bedroom in this home is on the first floor. It could be used as a bedroom or repurposed as a living or dining room.
New builds typically come with a 10-year New Homes Warranty which allows for peace of mind when buying your new home.
These beautiful homes come with a warranty.
- High specification
The specification of a new home is usually much higher than that of an older home – so you get more for your money. Boiling water taps, underfloor heating, triple glazing and fitted kitchens with integrated appliances are becoming the norm.
These one and two bedroom apartments come with integrated appliances and underfloor heating.
- Safety and security
Everyone should feel safe, secure and happy in their home. New homes are likely to have all the top safety and security measures in place.
This home comes with a security alarm system and multi point locking doors.
