Whether to go for a period property or move into a brand-new home is a personal choice. It’s a common misconception that new houses all look the same – they don’t. A Sky-House is a great example of how you can get the character of a period property, and all the benefits of a new-build…
Benefits of buying a new-build
- Low maintenance
New-build homes are built in line with the latest building codes and safety regulations, meaning they are engineered to require less care and maintenance.
Enjoy liberated living, a life with fewer worries and use the time you might otherwise be spending on your property to engage with your local community.
- Higher energy efficiency standards
New build homes are built to high performance levels when compared to existing UK housing stock. According to the National Home Improvement Council, work needed on older homes to meet modern standards of energy efficiency could cost £30,000. Our homes also feature solar panels, EV charging points, eco-friendly heat pumps for renewable hot water and more.
- New homes warranty
The 10-Year New Homes Warranty will cover any structural defects that may arise. New homes warranty providers (ICW or similar) are an external body who carry out regular inspections throughout the construction process to ensure the building meets building standards and is safe to occupy.
- No chain!
Moving home is stressful enough even without the reality of having to wait for a seller to find another home. Buying a new build means that you’ll be ‘chain free’ and ready to move in quickly without too much hassle.
- Buying off-plan
When you reserve a property off-plan, you commit to purchasing the home prior to the property being finished. In return, you’ll often get to have a say in the design and watch your property’s market value increase as soon as you move in!
