The Starter Home scheme is a new government plan, where 200,000 new build homes are available to first-time buyers under 40 years old with at least 20% off the market price.
For most, buying a home will be the single biggest purchasing decision they will ever make. As such, there are many aspects to consider - location, budget and style, naturally, will be among these.
Buyers prepared to be flexible and make compromises are most likely to come out on top. Due to a national shortage of housing, it is very much a seller's market at the moment, so buyer flexibility is more important than ever.
Providing period features are not an absolute must, discerning buyers may wish to exercise such flexibility and consider purchasing new build homes - the benefits of which are numerous. Here are some advantages of buying brand new:
When you purchase an older property, you are risking investing your money in a house that has hidden issues. Structural problems, bad wiring, a poorly laid roof, mould: all of these amount to costly refurbishment projects that might not even show up on your survey. Knowing everything from the roof, to the walls, to all the fixtures and fittings are brand new and that the structure is under guarantee brings an unquantifiable sense of relief!
Another thing to consider is that new build homes come chain free - there is nothing worse than having your offer on a house accepted, only to wait for the occupants to complete on their own purchase and vacate.
By putting an offer in early, you may get a chance to agree on some of the finer details of the specification, rendering your new build more bespoke.
