Reap The Benefits Of A Brand-new Home In Yorkshire For 2022
01 Dec 2021

When it comes to moving or buying a first home, many people are still faced with the dilemma of old versus new. 

A serious debate facing most homeowners is which one will give them the best value for money - a new, or second-hand property. 

But because all new Linden Homes are built according to the very latest new build guidelines, they come with standard features like designated parking space or driveway, double glazing and a connection to a main gas supply, which may not be available on older properties due to design or planning restrictions.

Re-decorating, installing a new bathroom or kitchen and laying new carpets are just some of the DIY jobs many of us have planned when we move into a ‘used’ home.

Buying a new home can cut down on many costs associated with an older home, allowing customers to tick a wish-list of essentials while also putting them in the driving seat when it comes to those finishing touches – not to mention saving them a small fortune in domestic repairs.

With ready to move into and planned new homes available across the Yorkshire region, Linden Homes (part of Vistry group) is counting down to Christmas with 12 great reasons to bid farewell to 2021 and see in the new year with a new home.

  1. New homes offer a range of styles to meet current and future living needs.
  2. Locations of new developments are carefully planned, accounting for access to schools, transport links and local amenities.
  3. Not only kinder to your pocket, but new homes are also kinder to the environment thanks to energy saving fittings and features including water saving toilet flushes and thermostat-controlled heating.
  4.  A shiny new boiler means you don’t have the worry of an older boiler breaking down in the winter.
  5. Lockable double-glazed windows will save you money, keep you warmer and add security to the home.
  6. Already winter proof, new homes will have brand new guttering, recommended loft insulation and sturdy roof tiles.
  7. There is no need to consider multiple utility options; new homes are connected automatically to a gas main supply.
  8. Taking into account that many new home owners will have one or more vehicles, consideration is taken to provide practical parking in the form of a dedicated garage or allocated parking space.
  9. A number of financial-related special offers including shared equity and schemes for first time buyers and existing homeowners are available.
  10. The vast majority of new homes come with an insurance-backed 10-year guarantee giving new owners real peace of mind. That’s something else you simply can’t get when buying second-hand.
  11. New homes builders are often more realistic and flexible about pricing.
  12. Home buyers wanting to reduce their impact on climate change can buy new-build properties in the knowledge that they are investing in an energy-efficient home that qualifies for a new green mortgage discount.

Sales director Steve Woomble said: “Buying a new home has always had many advantages over a second-hand property. However, we have seen consumer confidence grow in recent months, and people who may have halted their plans to move because of the pandemic are returning with renewed vigour and a very clear idea of what they are looking for in their first, next or forever home.

“There can be many hidden costs involved in buying a second-hand property  - perhaps the central heating system is not as reliable as you were led to believe, or the windows need a lick of paint or even replacing. Small things can quickly add up and prove costly. A new home offer peace of mind on many levels.”
