Why Buy New?

Northcote FamilyWith two young children, the Northcotes (pictured above) wanted to move closer to
family to make daily life a bit easier. Mum Lynne says:”The package offered by our builder was a great way to make a move to a new home
without all of the normal stress you’d expect. It was truly hassle-free.”Our sales executive Rona kept us updated throughout every stage of our buying
process, and our site manager Stevie is always on-hand if we need any help with small
snagging issues – but we’ve hardly had anything to bother him with!”(courtesy of Taylor Wimpey)

New build homes offer the widest possible range of options and benefits that the
second-hand market simply cannot match:

Wide range of help available

The many options available are all designed to help ensure buyers can achieve their dream of owning a new home. Just ask your builder to see what help they can offer.

Peace of mind

New homes come with new fixtures and fittings as well as the protection of a ten year guarantee and the Consumer Code for Home Builders.


Nine out of ten Scottish customers would recommend their builder to a friend, but no-one bothers to make sure you’re happy if you buy a second-hand property!

Energy savings and efficiency

Research has found that living in new energy efficient homes could create annual savings of around 55% on gas and electricity spending – significant potential savings when you consider the average bill has rocketed by 91% since 2006 and now stands at around £1,300.

Design & specification

New homes include modern facilities that many older homes cannot incorporate easily without substantial structural work. It has also been estimated to cost £22,000 to bring the standard of an
older property up the same specification as a new home.


Buying a new home often means making exciting choices such as flooring, appliances and decoration – perhaps even room configuration – so no need to think about redecoration or renovation!

Less stress

New build homes offer a number of important added reassurances which help avoid any nasty surprises and keep anxiety levels down: the price is fixed, everything is new and guaranteed, running costs are controlled and your builder will take care of you.

Bright and untouched

There’s no need to waste your evenings or weekends on DIY and disruption – simply move in and start enjoying your new home straight away.
