Out with the old, in with the New!

Looking to move house but can’t find one to move to? Buying new could be the answer.

2021 has been a great year for anyone selling up, particularly in our part of the world where house prices have risen more than 10% year on year. Naturally, many of us contemplating a move are keen to take advantage of the buoyant housing market but have held back, unable to find anywhere to move to.

Buying brand new could be the perfect solution in a market where the number of properties for sale is low. Buying a new home also offers you much greater certainty of the sale completing, with no fear of the seller pulling out due to a change of heart or a break in the chain they find themselves in. Getting mortgage approval for a new home is also usually very straight-forward, as it’s highly unlikely any nasties will show up on the survey for a new build home. And if you’re concerned about energy costs – and with the recent announcement of significant hikes in gas prices, who isn’t? – then buying a brand new home, boasting green credentials and a high EPC rating is a no-brainer.

A number of other real advantages of buying new, include:

• Lower maintenance
• Peace of mind – sold with a warranty
• Personalisation – choice of fixtures, fittings and finishes when buying off plan
• More favourable financial incentives
