New Year, New Home?

By Alex D'Andrea - 29 November 2018

New homes have always been exceptionally popular but what’s the attraction?

Well it should be attractions because the reasons are both numerous and compelling.

First and foremost there’s the obvious advantage of being able to choose your kitchen, bathroom, colour schemes and with some smaller niche builders, even remodel the layout. And on the day, you move straight in with everything is done.

Whilst some people may not be too attracted to larger developments, they often have the house style you want in different locations, so you can get the position you want, whether it be a sunny south aspect, a corner plot or one that’s un-overlooked. 

And of course new homes are built to the latest environmental and energy efficiency standard so they are economic to run and easy to maintain making them very popular with downsizers.

Financial incentives such as Help to Buy are a big plus as well and often builders will have their own incentives to add to the mix.

One of the most popular reasons to buy new though is because it is easy! The property will be chain free, eliminating the dreaded chain above and in some cases the developer will take your property in part exchange and avoiding a chain below as well. It’s about as stress free as you’re likely to get.

Beresfords recently had a buyer who initially had reservations about new homes, but she was quickly converted as soon as she viewed the property. Here is what Mrs W had to say;

When I first decided to move house I wasn’t actually thinking of a new build. I came across my new home one day as I was driving to another viewing. The layout and aspect of the development was the first thing that caught my eye. The planning of the layout of the new development was spacious and the homes had character.

“Upon viewing I fell in love with my new home immediately – the room sizes are great – three double bedrooms in a new home is a luxury. It meant what was supposed to be a downsizing became the opposite in terms of bedroom space. The fixtures and fittings are of a high standard, I was extremely impressed with the kitchen and bathroom designs and even the wall colours were carefully chosen by the developer which meant I could move straight in and not have to change a thing.”

If you are interested in some of the new homes that Beresfords currently have available, here are some that might take your fancy…
