New build homes on the rise

15th May 2017

Some 42,470 new homes were registered in the first quarter of 2017, showing the strongest quarter since the third quarter of 2007 as well as a 17% increase on the same period in 2016, according to the National House Building Council (NHBC).

The UK's appetite for new homes is only increasing with the number of new-build homes being registered at the start of 2017 the highest in a decade.

This week marks New Homes Week, an event that gives you the chance for you to find out more about the massive benefits that buying a new build home has. From the superb finishing touches and quality specifications, to the many excellent deals house builders can offer including a 10 year structural warranty as standard. Buying a new home gives you peace of mind.  In addition the popular Help to Buy equity loan scheme is available only on new build homes.

It is easy to see why this number is increasing with the many benefits that a new build home give home owners be them first-time buyers or otherwise.

Mandy Soames, Antler Homes, Sales and Marketing Director comments:

"It makes sense that we are seeing a rise in the popularity of new build homes, the benefits that new builds bring are vast.  To start with most new build homes over a Ten-Year Structural warranty offering cover to give buyers peace of mind. New build also offers greater security, lower utility bills and many features offered as standard to meet the demands of modern living.  Personally I think of one the best things about a new build home is the fact that it is a blank canvas and means you don’t have to deal with any DIY disasters from previous owners and you can decorate it exactly as you like.’’
