New build developments are becoming increasingly popular, especially among first-time buyers seeking a home they can truly make their own. From increased energy efficiency features to the ability to choose your own fixtures and fittings, new build homes have an array of attractive benefits.
Our new build properties come with a 10 year warranty, which protects you against structural defects for the first decade of living in your new home. Structural defects are less likely to be a problem in modern homes than older properties, but the warranty provides peace of mind that, if structural issue do occur, you are covered.
Safety and Security
New builds have a higher level of safety than older properties, because they have to adhere to the latest safety legislation. They are made of modern fire-resistant materials, and certain rooms have to have windows that open wide enough to escape in the event of a fire.
Thanks to smart energy systems and superior insulating materials, you could save over £600 per year on your energy bills in a new home. All Mill Bay homes have an A or B energy rating. New homes also have a smaller carbon footprint, as well as better air filtration, which reduces symptoms for people with asthma and allergies.
New build developments allow you much more design choice than older homes. Not only can you choose your plot, but, depending on the stage of construction, you’ll also be able to choose your own fixtures and fittings –things like tiles, kitchen options, and external landscaping –to really put your own stamp on your new home.
The buying process for a new home is easier than for an older home, which may be part of a complex property chain. This means you don’t have the stress of waiting for other people to sell their home, and lets you plan your time scale. Although the buying process may still take time –especially if you’ve decided to buy off-plan –there’s much less risk and hassle involved.
There are several schemes which make home ownership more accessible that are only available on new-build homes. For example shared ownership and Help to Buy Wales.
