Why Buy New

Buying a new home is the biggest investment of your life

Buying a new home is the biggest investment of your life, why compromise by purchasing a second hand property with the potential for hidden problems, choose a brand new Crest Nicholson home and take advantage of the benefits associated with buying new, its far more than just a pristine blank canvas to put your own mark on.

Home buying process - A helping hand

Whether you’re a first time buyer or moving up the property ladder we have a number of incentives to help get you moving. If you already own a property why not use Part Exchange, just select your favourite Crest Nicholson home and we'll buy yours.

Alternatively if you are struggling to find the time to make all the necessary arrangements to move why not let us make them for you with our SmoothMove scheme, simply reserve one of our properties and we’ll organise the sale of yours.

Getting on the property ladder can be particularly hard, why not take advantage of our shared equity schemes like Help to Buy and you could pay from as little as just 80% of the price of a new home now!

Our Sales Advisors are on hand to help progress every sale, answer your questions and ensure that the purchase of your new home is as smooth as possible.

When you reserve with Crest Nicholson, we'll also provide you with a Home Owners Guide, a user-friendly reference document that leads you through each stage of the purchasing process.

Plus there are no upward chains to consider when buying a new build home, so the whole process is much less stressful and quicker.

Building in Excellence

All our homes are independently assessed during construction and covered by an NHBC 10-year Buildmark warranty the first 2 years of which are covered by Crest Nicholson own dedicated customer service team.

Security and low level maintenance are built in from the design stage and every home undergoes a stringent ‘fit for purpose' inspection prior to occupancy.

Crest Nicholson home owners are supported by a dedicated customer care team who ensure the highest standard of service.

Championing sustainability – efficiency as standard

The average new home is up to four times more energy efficient than a traditional second hand home. New homes have excellent insulation and the latest energy saving devices. This means they have lower running costs compared to traditional homes. New homes are designed to minimise waste and to work in balance with the environment. At Crest Nicholson we strive to create a sense of community within our developments by adding parks, play areas, and other features for the benefit of all who live there.

At Crest Nicholson we will give you a modern attractive home which provides:

  • Higher insulation standards
  • Low energy appliances and lighting, and areas which maximise natural light
  • Water efficient appliances
  • Transport links in mind
  • Safety – for you and your visitors
  • Carefully selected quality materials with a lower environmental impact
  • A healthier environment through ventilation and design
  • We will seek out new and evolving technologies and skills to continuously raise the sustainability standards of our homes, which will help you to reduce your carbon emissions and environmental 'footprint'.

As a Crest Nicholson home owner you can:

  • Reduce your energy use – and your gas and electricity bills
  • Reduce your water use and charges
  • Increase your recycling
  • Choose more sustainable modes of transport
  • Access local amenities at ease
  • Enjoy open space and landscaped communal areas
  • In a growing number of cases, receive some of your energy from a renewable source
  • Live in harmony within a sustainable community
