Buying a new home can make your home feel extra special. It does, however, come with its own set of different challenges.
The standard of home building in the UK has continually improved and has never been to as higher level of standard as it is today. From improved energy efficiency to expected levels of fitted features, there are many areas that have moved forward vastly in just a short period time. The areas mentioned in older developments and homes lack behind the new build properties and homes.
When you move into your new home is new and untouched by previous owners. All of our new homes are decorated in neutral colours which give you a blank canvas in order for you to stamp your own style and personality from the moment you move in.
The government in recent years has put a big focus on the construction of new homes, aiming to build one million new homes over the next five years. In addition, the government has also heavily invested in incentivising first-time buyers to buy new-build homes. You can now buy a new home with a 5% deposit using the Help-To-Buy equity loan scheme.
