According to figures from the NHBC (National House Building Council), over 150,000 new homes were built in the UK last year – the highest number since 2007. With demand for new homes seemingly ever increasing, the HBF (House Builders Federation) is promoting the benefits of new build homes through New Homes Week, which runs from 16th to 22nd May.
For many homebuyers, the dilemma often starts with the decision between old vs new and ultimately which offers the best value for money – a new or second hand property.
Brian Deacon, sales and marketing director at Linden Homes, said: “In today’s market place, with so many initiatives available, the argument for buying new as opposed to old has never been greater. There are huge benefits designed to reduce costs and ease the stresses related to moving home.
“There is also plenty of choice when it comes to location and style of home, as well as the chance to be part of a new and growing community.”
7 reasons: why opt for new over old?
Florin and Gina Strugariu bought a three bedroom house for their family at Linden Homes’ Home @ Heartlands development. Commenting on the move, he said: “It’s great having a home that is so new – no old boiler that needs replacing or leaky roof, but a modern kitchen and a brand new bathroom! We absolutely love our new home, it’s well-designed and we’ve noticed a reduction in our energy bills too.”
Linden Homes is creating a number of new homes locally in Exeter, Kingsteignton, Goodrington, Paignton, Totnes, Okehampton, Plymouth, Truro, Penryn and Camborne.
