Why live on a new housing development?
- September 23, 2020
When purchasing a new house, you will find that the builders would have used the most up-to-date building standards to improve the energy efficiency of the house. This gives you assurance that your home is saving you money and reducing your carbon footprint. From planning to the building stage, energy efficiency is always at the forefront of the whole building process, meaning every part of your home, from the unseen foundations to the appliances you use regularly, is energy-efficient.
Moving onto a new development means everyone is in the same situation. You are not moving into an established estate where neighbours have lived for years. Everyone is new and building new relationships with their neighbours.
Purchasing a new house also gives you the option to decide on the finishing touches to your home; which will be completed in time for when you move in. You can benefit from choosing your own fixtures and fittings, colour schemes and flooring. This means your new home is low maintenance and you don’t need to spend time or money on decorating.
New build houses come with a structural warranty, so if there are any major structural defects you know that you are covered for a period of 10 years. This provides you with peace of mind that that you will not have to endure any significant financial costs of repairs.
