Reasons for buying a new home

Ever considered buying or building a new home? As experts in new housing developments, here are some great reasons why we believe a new build is the best choice.

You can choose your Dream Home

New build homes are often designed with modern living in mind – making them a light & airy space efficient and comfortable place to live in.  Homes built by Seamans Building are newly decorated with all the mod-cons, a brand-new fitted kitchen and boiler, lovely clean bathrooms etc.

If you buy ‘off plan’ from a developer you may be also able to choose a specific plot as well as your own flooring, wall colours and fixtures and fittings etc, adding your own stamp to your new home.

The Eco-friendly Choice

A new home build will undoubtedly be more energy efficient and environmentally friendly than an older property. 

Appliances and light fittings will be brand new and energy efficient.  Double glazed windows won’t let the draught through.  A new heating system, cavity wall and loft insulation will ensure your home stays toasty and warm – all saving you money in the long run. 

Some new build homes may also provide car charging points.

Low repair costs

With everything in your new home being brand new, there will be no need to repair or renovate anything.  A ‘snagging period’ is a time agreed with your builder or housing provider which allows the builder to return to fix any little issues normal to a new build.  

Most new build properties will come with a variety of warranties including a 10-year warranty via the NHBC (or similar) which will cover you for defects or any structural issues.

Excellent Quality & Peace of Mind

New-build homes are built to a much higher specification than older properties, with high levels of security features including window locks and British Standard 5 lever locks to the main doors of your new home.  Modern homes are built using the latest fire-resistant materials and will have linked smoke alarms installed.

All of this could equate to reduced house and contents insurance – again, saving you money!

No chain

And if all of that wasn’t reason enough to purchase or build a new home – the exciting part is that you can move in as soon as its complete!  With no chain, there is no waiting for others to move out, and therefore no delay.  Being chain-free makes the moving process much more enjoyable allowing you to relax and enjoy your beautiful new home.
