Modern design, improved building standards and the latest materials and technology mean buying a new property brings a host of benefits.
Today’s homes are better constructed, better sound-proofed, more energy efficient and more comfortable than older properties. Installing a new kitchen or bathroom, replacing central heating or redecorating are a costly upheaval; according to the Home Builders’ Federation the average bill to bring an older home up to new build specifications is a thought-provoking £45,000.
The same source calculated that on average, new homes built today are 65% more energy efficient than a Victorian home of the same style. Add to that the fact that new homes also come with a 10-year warranty and you can see why buying new home doesn’t just mean peace of mind; it means perfect sense.
