Why You Should Consider Buying a New Build Home

Posted 23/04/2024

For first-time buyers, young professionals, and burgeoning families, investing in a new build property rather than an older home offers a plethora of advantages perfectly suited to the demands of contemporary living. From sleek design to cutting-edge technology and energy efficiency, here's why you should be thinking about buying a new build.

Tailored to Your Taste

Unlike older properties where renovations can be a costly headache, new builds provide a blank canvas for you to customise to your liking. Whether you prefer an open-plan layout for entertaining guests or state-of-the-art kitchen appliances, new build homes allow you to tailor the details to suit your needs, ensuring your living space reflects you and your lifestyle.

As a Higgins Homes buyer, you have the added benefit of our #HomesComfort incentive. One of the many advantages involved is the furniture pack, whereby buyers can simply turn the key and move into a brand-new home that is fully furnished to their tastes with high-quality, contemporary furnishings by Danish brand BoConcept. This not only saves a great deal of time, but also included financial savings.

Built for Efficiency

Energy efficiency is now a top priority for many homeowners. New build properties are designed with sustainability in mind, incorporating the latest advancements in insulation, heating, and ventilation systems to minimise energy consumption and reduce utility costs. From energy-efficient appliances to high-performance windows, new build homes are engineered to maintain comfortable living conditions while minimising environmental impact and unnecessary spending.

Low Maintenance Living
Gone are the days of spending weekends tackling home maintenance tasks. New build homes are constructed using durable, low-maintenance materials that require minimal
upkeep, allowing homeowners to spend less time on chores and more time enjoying their space. With brand-new fixtures and fittings, you can rest assured that your home is built to last, providing years of hassle-free living without the worry of unexpected repairs or maintenance issues.

Tech-Ready Living

In an increasingly digital world, technology plays a central role in our daily lives. New build homes are designed with the tech-savvy homeowner in mind, featuring integrated smart home systems that allow for seamless connectivity and control. From programmable thermostats to smart lighting and security systems, modern new builds offer unparalleled convenience and security, putting the power of home automation at your fingertips.

Financial Incentives

Finally, investing in a new build home can offer financial benefits for buyers, including incentives such as government schemes, developer incentives, and favourable mortgage rates. With a challenging economic environment, the biggest difficulty, especially for first-time buyers, is often saving a big enough deposit. Higgins Homes understands this challenge and has responded with a range of financial incentives including 5% deposit top-up, potentially taking the deposit from 10% to 15%. Or buyers can take advantage of having the legal fees and stamp duty paid, which also adds up to a substantial expense. With the potential for long-term appreciation and reduced upfront costs, purchasing a new build home can be a savvy financial decision for buyers looking to secure their future.

The decision to purchase a new build home offers a myriad of benefits for first-time buyers, young professionals, growing families and anyone in between. From customisable design to low utility costs and cutting-edge technology, new builds are perfectly suited to the demands of a busy, modern lifestyle. With financial incentives and low-maintenance living, now is the perfect time to consider making your next home a modern marvel and a luxurious new Higgins home.
