The Benefits Of Buying a New Home

As the demand for housing continues to rise, home builders are continuing to invest in building top-quality properties. From high levels of standard fitted features to improved energy efficiency, buying a new home comes with a range of benefits.

So why buy a new build home? Here are some of our top reasons to buy new.

Brand new means a blank canvas

Experience the joy of starting fresh with a brand-new home, untouched by previous owners. Our new builds are decorated in neutral colours to give buyers a blank canvas to stamp their own style and personality on from day one.

Less chain means less stress and hassle

New home buyers can move in as soon as construction is complete, reducing the need to wait for existing residents to leave. This reduces the chain, which can be one of the most stressful parts of the home buying process, making the transition into a new home smoother and more enjoyable.

Spoilt for choice

From cosy bungalows to grand five-bedroom houses, new build homes come in various shapes and sizes to ensure that there is something for everyone. You get carpets and flooring included in the property, so your home will be ready to move into. And subject to the stage of construction, Jelson Homes also allow you to choose higher specification fixtures and fittings at an additional cost.

Living spaces for modern lifestyles

New build properties are built to maximise every inch of space. In older homes, research shows that around 17% of space often goes unused, which means around £34,000 of a £200,000 house is wasted. A new home however provides flexible living spaces tailored to your circumstances, whether you’re a young professional, a couple, a growing family or a downsizer.

High specification homes

Buying a new build home means you are buying a property that is built to a much higher specification than many older properties. Our energy-efficient homes boast an array of standard features, including fitted kitchens with appliances and en-suite bathrooms.

Designed to comply with the latest building regulations set by the Government, newer homes also benefit from modern heating systems, excellent insulation and energy-efficient windows and doors.

Be part of a new Community

Moving into a brand-new home is also an opportunity to be a part of an emerging community. Unlike established streets with infrequent property turnover, new neighbourhoods are designed for people, fostering easier integration as everyone begins a fresh start together.

Enjoy peace of mind

New build homes come with peace of mind through insurance-backed 10-year warranties from the NHBC or Zurich. Buying a new build home reduces the need for renovations or DIY and means that owners can spend more time focusing on quality time with family and friends.

Stay safe and sound

New properties follow strict building standards. These standards relate to every aspect of a building’s construction, from how it’s built to the air circulation, noise protection and safety measures for electricity and fire. This ensures that new home buyers can feel safe and secure in their living environment.

Help the planet and save money too!

New homes are six times more energy-efficient and generate over 60% less CO2 emissions than older homes. This means that new homeowners can both do their bit for the environment and save money on energy bills, saving potentially more than £500 a year!
