A new study revealing that a third of us are stumped by simple DIY jobs has highlighted the appeal of maintenance-free brand new homes.
According to a recent survey of 2,000 adults in the UK; rewiring a plug, bleeding a radiator and unblocking a sink feature in the list of DIY dreads.
Topping the list is wallpapering (38 per cent) followed by putting up shelves, which is a no-no for 32 per cent of respondents.
Brits also admitted to taking an average of 19 days to start any practical jobs around the house or garden, and nearly half of all people surveyed say they are simply too busy to attempt DIY.
However, these and many other maintenance and DIY projects won’t be needed if you opt for a brand new home from Linden Homes North, and reap the many benefits of choosing new over second hand.

And with the expense of the festive season and a New Year just around the corner, buying a new home can not only cut down the cost, but also put buyers in the driving seat when it comes to those finishing touches.
And as with the 12 days of Christmas – here are Linden Homes North’s 12 good reasons to buy a brand new dream home:
