What are the advantages of buying a new build home?
When it comes to purchasing a new home, there are a myriad of options to consider. One increasingly popular choice among homebuyers is purchasing a fully kitted out new-build home. At Chestnut Homes, our newly constructed properties sit within purpose-built developments near local amenities, great transport links and within friendly communities.
While older homes certainly have their charm and appeal, there are numerous advantages to buying a new build home that can make it a smart choice for many buyers. From modern design and energy efficiency to warranties and customisation options, purchasing a new build home can provide a more comfortable and worry-free experience. Read on to find out more about some of the key benefits of purchasing a new build property and why it might work for you.
7 benefits of buying a new build home
1. Modern design and advancements
One of the most obvious advantages of buying a new build home is the modern design and features it offers. New homes are built to high design specifications and with modern advancements in mind. This means you can expect spacious layouts and welcoming open floor plans. You won't need to worry about outdated appliances, electrical systems, or plumbing issues that often come with older homes too.
2. Extensive energy efficiency
New build homes are constructed with energy efficiency and future proofing in mind to look after the planet and your pocket. They are built to meet or exceed the latest building specifications and regulations, often incorporating eco-friendly materials and energy-saving technologies. These include thermostatic radiator valves, programmable room thermostats and high levels of insulation. This translates to lower utility bills over time, reduced environmental impact, and a more comfortable living environment.
3. Warranty and peace of mind
Most new build homes come with warranties from the house builder, covering any structural work and major systems for several years. This warranty gives buyers peace of mind, knowing that they will receive support straight away should there be any problems. At Chestnut Homes, our properties come with a 10-year warranty from the National House Building Council (NHBC).
4. Customisation options
Depending on the stage of construction when you purchase a new build home, you may have the opportunity to customise certain aspects of the house. This allows you to create a living space that truly reflects your style and needs. Chestnut Homes' new build properties come with a choice of stylish kitchen units and worktops from the Symphony range.
5. Lower maintenance costs
New homes generally require less maintenance than older ones. With new materials and appliances, you won't have to worry about replacing a leaky roof, repairing an aging boiler, or rewiring outdated electrical systems anytime soon. This not only saves you money but gives you peace of mind and more time to enjoy your new home, rather than planning expensive repairs.
6. Safety and building codes
Our new build homes are constructed to the latest safety standards and building regulations. This means they incorporate features like fire-resistant materials, modern smoke detectors, and up-to-date electrical systems to enhance the safety of your home.
7. Community amenities
Many new build developments are master-planned communities that offer close proximity to a wide range of amenities such as parks, playgrounds, fitness centers, and even schools. Living in such communities can enhance your overall quality of life and provide you with everything you need, a stone's throw from your new neighbourhood.
