Why purchasers are choosing to buy new
Buying a new build property is becoming increasingly popular with such a great array of quality new homes on the market from independent builders. Owning something that has been newly constructed in unique locations has huge market appeal, added to by the fact that there are no changes or alterations to make once you are in.
Many of the properties will come with a 10 year build guarantee in addition to all of the similar length warranties for the double glazing, heating units and sometimes even white goods!
Due to the modern day build methods and strict building control laws, the properties being constructed are far more energy efficient than their older counterparts, saving further money for home owners on their utility costs.
We have also seen an increasing number of landlords opting for newly constructed properties to avoid issues with maintenance for their tenants. This ultimately allows them to command a higher rent.
Lastly we have found that buyers that are already in a complex or lengthy chain of sales don’t want the risk of the vendor deciding they no longer want to move and the sale falling through. With a new, empty property you have no onward chain to consider.
