the best benefits of buying a brand new home

Many of us dream of buying a brand new home, with all the luxury and mod cons that come with it. But beyond how aesthetically pleasing a new home looks, did you know that there are many other benefits to buying brand new? Take a look at this short list we’ve compiled and you’ll never want to buy any other way again.

They’re more energy efficient

One major benefit of owning a new home is that they’re built to the latest building regulations and are far more energy efficient than older properties. New builds contain modern heating systems and higher levels of insulation, helping your house retain its heat. With good insulation you’ll use less energy to heat your home and over the long run the extra money you spend on buying a new build will pay for itself.

They’re more secure

New homes are also likely to be more secure than older homes. Window locks and British Standard 5 lever locks will usually be installed on the main doors and many builders will pre-wire their new houses for burglar alarm systems or fit them as standard. These features will inevitably help to reduce the cost of your home and contents insurance.

Not only that, new houses are also built to the latest safety standards. This means they will be built using fire-resistant materials and contain linked smoke alarms to protect your family in case of a fire. Some rooms will also be built with accessible opening windows so that they can serve as an escape route.

The first use is yours

Another beauty to buying a new home is that you’ll have the first use of everything. That means no greasy kitchen units, no damaged fixtures and no unsightly stains.

You’ll also be free to choose the furnishings yourself, so there’s no need to live with the previous occupant’s dodgy taste in carpets or wallpaper. There’s also the possible opportunity to be treated to brand new appliances – meaning you won’t have to worry about them breaking and costing you money.
