One of the main benefits of buying a new build property is less lightly to require the same level of maintenance you would face with an older property.
If you’re buying off plan you may have the added benefit of choosing your own fixture and fittings, colour scheme, flooring, no decorating!
All new build come with a 10-year warranty, protecting you against any structural defects.
FIXTURES AND FITTINGS:
One of the great advantages of buying a brand-new property is that, often, many of the fixtures and fittings you would otherwise have to fork out for are included in the price.
New build homes must adhere to minimum standards for energy efficiency. With energy costs ever increasing it is an important factor for ongoing costs. In addition, new homes typically offer better air filtration which increases indoor air quality.
New homes are built to strict safety standard utilising the latest fire-resistant materials and technology linking them to smoke alarms.
IS THERE A NEW BUILD PREMIUM?
A term used to describe the fact that new-build homes tend to be pricier than older, but otherwise similar, properties. The reason for this difference is that everything is new and unused, energy-efficient and built to a high-quality spec.
