    What are the benefits of buying a new home?

    The standard of home building in the UK has never been higher than it is today. With the need for housing at unprecedented levels, home builders are investing huge amounts of resources into the quality of their properties; from exceptional levels of standard fitted features to improved energy efficiency. Here are our top reasons to buy new.

    Top reasons to buy a brand new home!

    Brand new means a blank canvas  
    Everything in a new home is clean and untouched by previous owners. Most new homes are decorated in ‘neutral’ colours giving you a blank canvas to stamp your own style and personality on from day one.

    Less chain means less stress and hassle

    A new home buyer can move in to their new home as soon as it is complete, there is no need to wait for existing residents to vacate. This reduces the chain, stress and uncertainty associated with buying a second hand property.

    Spoilt for choice

    New homes come in all shapes and sizes, from small studio flats to grand five bedroom houses and there are countless designs and styles to choose from – something for everyone. Subject to the stage of construction, some builders offer a bespoke service to customers enabling them to choose fixtures and fittings, or a higher specification from the builder’s range at an additional cost. In some cases this will include flooring, soft furnishings, interior design or even a garden landscaping service.

    Live in a high spec home

    New homes are built to a much higher specification than many older properties. The amount of ‘as standard’ features included in new build homes has also greatly increased. Today, many new developments have fitted kitchens with cooker and hob, fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher plus many have a fitted en-suite bathroom or shower room. Designed to comply with the very latest building regulations set by the Government, new homes are also kitted out with the latest heating systems, excellent wall and loft insulation, double glazed windows and doors.

    Built to suit your lifestyles

    New homes are built to make use of every inch of space. Research shows 17 per cent of living space in older style properties often goes unused, so the house space goes to waste. New homes, on the other hand, provide flexible living space whatever your circumstances, whether you are single, a couple, a growing family or retired.

    Safety First

    New homes are designed to adhere to high building standards. These standards relate to every aspect of a building’s construction including its structure, ventilation, sound insulation, electrical and fire safety, so new home owners can enjoy living in a safe and secure environment.

    I’m thinking of moving, what do I need to consider?

    Mortgage Advice

    Arrange an appointment with our advisor.

    They can help recommend what kind of property you can afford, what kind of deposit you will require, and what the monthly repayments are likely to be.


    Register on our Mailing List

    Once you have had mortgage advice and confident of your affordability, we can start helping you search for that perfect property!

    Our staff will discuss your property requirements to include location, number of bedrooms, parking, garden size etc, and guide you through our selection of properties to see which might be most suitable.

    If your dream property cannot be found yet, we will keep you up to speed with any properties that come onto the market, by email or by telephone…the choice is yours.


    Arrange to view some Properties

    Once you have narrowed down which properties may be of interest, we are more than happy to arrange for you to see these properties, at your most convenient time.


    Make an offer

    You’ve seen it. The perfect property. Your dream home.

    Now is the time to make an offer.

    A simple phone call or visit to our office will suffice, and we will be able to usually find out that same day whether or not your offer is acceptable. If your offer isn’t acceptable, we will get back to you as soon as possible to let you know what kind of offer our vendor would be willing to accept.


    Mortgage Application & Choosing a Solicitor

    As soon as your offer has been accepted you will need to choose a solicitor, who will carry out all the legal work involved with purchasing the property for you.

    Additionally, our mortgage adviser will guide you through applying for the mortgage, and all the associated insurances available to protect you and your new home.



    As part of your mortgage application, the lender will usually carry out a survey of the property you are buying to ensure that it is satisfactory order, and to confirm that the price you have agreed to pay is in line with the current market value.


    Exchange of Contracts

    Once you have received your mortgage offer, and your survey has been carried out, and your solicitor has carried out all of their legal work, you are ready to sign your contract!

    Once this is signed your solicitor will liaise with the seller’s solicitor to confirm a ‘moving in’ date and swap, or exchange contracts.

    If there are any aspects of buying that you are unsure of then please let us know – please call 01522 845 845 for any advice.
