10 great things about buying a new build

04/10/2018

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:

 

  1. 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.

 

  1. 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.

Smock Mill Place, Falmer Road, Rottingdean

These properties have access to a communal electric car charging point.

 

  1. 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.

Gemini One, Victoria Road, Burgess Hill

The Help to Buy scheme is available for these fantastic homes.

 

  1. 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.

 

  1. Choices

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.

Silver Birch Close, Hove

Early purchasers have a choice of worktop, backsplash and carpet colours.

 

  1. Benefits from developers

Some developers will offer excellent perks for buying a new build. For example, in the past we’ve had homes with the stamp duty paid for by the developer, or discounts on furniture.

Smock Mill Place, Falmer Road, Rottingdean

With the show home now launched, we’re able to offer stamp duty paid until the end of October.

 

  1. Modern layouts

New builds often have very flexible open plan living spaces, ideal for families and for entertaining.

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.

 

  1. Warranty

New builds typically come with a 10-year New Homes Warranty which allows for peace of mind when buying your new home.

Vizion, Withdean Road, Brighton

These beautiful homes come with a warranty.

 

  1. 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.

Western Wharf, Kingsway, Hove

These one and two bedroom apartments come with integrated appliances and underfloor heating.

 

  1. 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.
