The benefits of buying new built homes

Finding the perfect home for your family can be challenging, and in amongst the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life, the last thing many of us want is a renovation project or inheriting issues associated with older properties.

That’s why buying new can often be the best option given the abundance of benefits.

For a start, there’s no chain, which means you can move into your new home as soon as it’s ready. And with our assured sale promise, you can relax knowing that if your current property hasn’t sold before the completion date on your new home, we’ll buy it at an agreed price and enable you to move on stress-free.

We’ve also recently introduced our new Mortgage Paid incentive available across a selection of our developments. You could receive a contribution worth up to 5% of the price of your new home to help with your mortgage deposit, monthly payments, bills or even home furnishings.

From our part exchange service, which provides a fair market offer based on two independent valuations, to our Recommend a Friend programme, which rewards existing customers for telling your friends and family about Stewart Milne Homes, our range of incentives help you get the best deal possible.

To make your new home more affordable, we also make a contribution to the Land and Buildings Transaction Tax (LBTT) due on your new home in Scotland and Stamp Duty in England, if applicable.

A key benefit of buying a new home is its energy efficiency. Energy costs have risen by 80% this year, and despite Government action, prices are still dauntingly high1. New homes are on average six times as energy efficient as older homes. On average, it will cost just over £1,530 per year to run a new Stewart Milne Homes house; just 37% of the cost of a typical existing home. Not only are our new homes better for the environment, but they’re also better for your wallet in the long-term.

Putting up with someone else’s choice of décor until you have a chance to redesign is also a worry of the past when buying new. Luxurious and spacious, our homes are designed for modern living and come complete with high-quality finishes throughout including AEG kitchen appliances and designer Porcelanosa bathroom tiles. With a range of added incentives such as your choice of complimentary flooring throughout, to turf and fencing included in the gardens, we offer an attractive selection of finishes to personalise your home.

Nasty surprises can all too often be hidden when viewing an older property, resulting in a drain on your time and finances once you’ve settled in. We are proud to offer a 10-year NHBC Buildmark warranty as standard, giving you peace of mind.

We don’t just build award-winning developments, we shape places for people, creating places that people want to call home. Green space is at the heart of every friendly new community, with generous space to walk, cycle and enjoy healthy outdoor activities. All that remains is for you to choose which location suits your and your family’s needs best.
