Guide to buying a New Build Home

Why Buy a New Build Home

Whether you are looking for a family house, city apartment, or room for a home office; all New Build Homes are designed for modern lifestyles.

At Your Move, we can help you to find your perfect New Build Home. We have access to a very wide range of property developments and our close relationship with developers means we can offer you exclusive deals not available elsewhere.

Here are just some of the New Build benefits:

  • Peace of Mind. New Build Homes come with a warranty and insurance that lasts for up to 10 years. Check with what the warranty covers and ask for a copy of the policy when you reserve your home.
  • Your Choice. As the first ever owner, a new build home allows you to create your own style, free from past DIY decorating disasters.
  • Shorter property chain. Because you will be at the end of the selling chain, purchasing a new build home can keep the chain's length to a minimum.
  • Lower running costs. New build homes are built with higher levels of insulation. They have more efficient heating systems than ever before. Better energy efficiency means a reduction in carbon emissions and lower heating bills, helping you save money.
  • Incentive schemes. More than ever before New Build Homes are built with very high levels of thermal insulation and have more efficient heating systems. Improved energy efficiency means reduced carbon emissions and lower heating bills, helping save you money.

We can help you to find your perfect New Build Home. Here are some helpful hints and tips when purchasing a New Build Home.

Buying Retirement Homes 

We partner with a number of developers that specialise in retirement living.

You will have all the benefits of a New Home, but also most retirement homes offer advanced security features as standard, including window locks, circuit breakers, fire and smoke alarms. A retirement property will often benefit from additional features such as; personal alarm cords, video entry and other enhanced security, welfare products and services to offer increased peace of mind.

If you have a property to sell, we can work closely with the developer to secure a Part Exchange / Assisted Move deal that suits you to ensure that we achieve the best possible price for your existing home.
