8 reasons you should buy a new home

Wave goodbye to a chain

One of the trickiest things about buying an older property is the likelihood you will end up in a chain. Relying on others to sell their property or make an offer on one, or both, can add weeks if not months onto the process of you purchasing a home.

Take that out of the equation and you’re left with afar smoother process of buying your home and moving in.

Save money on your energy bills

A new home will be built with efficiency and sustainability in mind. From a boiler half the size of what you may have previously had (and extremely quiet) to double glazing and insulation, all installed as standard with a new Cora home. You get greater energy efficiency and temperature control, which can save you money on bills.

In fact, according to the Home Builders Federation, on average, owners of a new build property save just over £2000 on household bills each year.

A blank canvas

Although an older home may come with character or period features, there is nothing like a blank canvas for you to create your dream home. No one else has cooked in the kitchen, taken a bath or slept in the master bedroom! You can design your décor from scratch. It’s an exciting time as you move into a home that will always look exactly how you want it to.

A new community around you

New homes are often built to form a local community with houses of various shapes and sizes coming together, often around meticulously planned green space and amenities. Buying new means you’ll be surrounded by others doing the same. You can meet your neighbours, form friendships, share experiences, and build a strong community.

At Cora, we create amazing places for our customers, partners, and our local communities to lead healthy and more environmentally conscious lives.

Save money on DIY and repairs

A new home won’t have any of the potential damage or poor DIY jobs that an older one can come with. You are extremely unlikely to have to make any repairs to your new home for years. That will save you valuable time and money. It also means you can concentrate on settling into your new home without the stress of having to organise repairs.

You home is ready for modern life

Older homes can be spacious and perfectly suitable for living in, but a new home is designed for modern life. Top-spec new builds have all the latest technology with many offering ‘smart home’ features. Older homes may have outdated heating systems, or you might have to make major structural changes to allow for more up-to-date tech. New homes often feature open-plan layouts too, where older properties tend to have smaller, less functional rooms.
