Cosying Up In A New Home This Autumn Will Instantly Winter Proof Your Property

Getting cosy in a new home this autumn will winter proof your property and save money on the bills!

Reserving a new home now with Vistry Yorkshire (part of Vistry Group) will give you plenty of time to snuggle up before the clocks go back, and get settled before the colder weather kicks in.

A new home at this time of year will also certainly result in savings when it comes to utility bills; thanks to economic boilers, insulation and double-glazing.

However, a new property built to current energy saving standards and regulations could dramatically reduce the costs compared to an older counterpart – resulting in savings to spend on life’s little pleasures!

According to the House Builders’ Federation, new build home owners will spend on average £443.30 a year (£276 heating / £108 hot water / £60 lighting) - well under half of the £1,072 the owner of an older home can expect to spend – saving, on average, £52 a month, or £629 a year.

Vistry Yorkshire is currently building at locations in North, South, West and East Yorkshire, with styles to suit all tastes and budgets. As well as a series of incentives including Help to Buy, Part Exchange and the Key Worker package to help curb the cost of moving, the Government’s Stamp Duty holiday on all homes up to £500,000 until 31 March 2021, means a potential further £15,000 saving.

Vistry Yorkshire regional sales manager Melanie Parker said: “We’ve got some fabulous homes across the region which are ready to move into now and in the run up to Christmas.

“The huge benefit is that customers could move in as little as four weeks – which means they can be settled in before the arrival of winter.”
