There's a lot to think about when buying your first home. You want the right number of bedrooms at the right price in the right area. But what about new build vs. second hand homes? Below are some reasons why new should be the only choice you make. 

Access to Buying Schemes

Buying new gives you access to schemes like Save to Buy or Deposit Unlock, which aren't available on the second hand market.

Save on your energy bills

New build homes benefit from better insulation that uses much less energy than older homes, resulting in lower energy bills. New build homes are proven to save 63% on your energy bills that second hand properties. 

Less maintenance

New build means just that, with new appliances and new furniture you are less likely to pay out lots of money on repairs and fixing up the place. Second hand homes may come with higher costs for removing old wallpaper or replacing old appliances. 

A blank canvas

One of the best parts of owning a new home is you get to put your stamp on it. Your new build home comes totally untouched and ready to decorate just as you want to. 

Save a pretty penny while helping the planet

Better insulation. Modern boilers. Double glazing. All these features of a new build home mean that you’ll end up saving on a whole range of bill. And, with energy efficient lighting and heating systems, you’ll be helping the planet by living in a much more eco-friendly way. Everybody wins.

You can take a weight off your shoulders

No chains. Minimal maintenance costs. A 10-year NHBC warranty. It’s these things that make life that bit simpler and less stressful. In fact, with a new build, there are so many worries you can wave goodbye too. You’ll have better security with window locks, secure entry systems and smoke alarms, and you’ll have peace of mind thanks to everything being under guarantee. Less stress, more life.
