Why Should You Have a New Build?Back to News
Date: Wed 3rd October 2018
If you're a first time buyer, you're looking for a home to suit your specific needs or you have a growing family, then a new build could be a fantastic option for you. While there are a few common pitfalls, which we'll get to later and tell you how to avoid them, there are a multitude of benefits to having a new build home.
But what are the benefits?
Quite obviously, you'll be the first to live in the property!
It sounds simple to say but the fact that they will be the first people to live in the property really appeals to new homeowners. You can then really stamp your own personality and style on the property without having to change any existing decor!
Tailor the interior to your tastes
When you have a new build, you are able to truly customise the look and feel of your entire home. This means you can select every fixture and fitting that is installed in your home, from the bathroom and kitchen installations right up to the bedroom fittings and living room decor.
Redecoration and repair costs should be low for many years!
Because you will have had your home designed and built exactly how you want it, the need for redecoration or repairs for the first few years will naturally be very minimal. Therefore, you won't need to shell out on these potentially expensive bills for quite a while!
Energy bills should be lower
If the property is built to the very highest quality standards, the house should be far more energy efficient than buildings built many years ago. This will therefore lead to reduced running costs and lower energy bills for you.
How do you avoid the common pitfalls?
There are a couple of common pitfalls that many Kent house buyers fall into, but we'll tell you exactly how to avoid these. The first pitfall that many people fall into is the trap of hiring dodgy developers or house builders. The most important thing you can do is comprehensive research. Take a look into the background of the house builders - how long have they been doing it? Do they have lots of client testimonials and pictures of the work they've undertaken?
Another aspect of new builds that some house buyers don't consider is the fact that your new build is not likely to increase in value in the first couple of years, so if you don't think you'll be living there for long, you shouldn't really consider having a new build. However, if you think you are going to live in the property for a substantial length of time, then you can always consider adding a conservatory on the back or having an extension at some point as a way of increasing the value of your property.
