A selection of new homes at a Crest Nicholson development

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. It's far more than just a blank canvas to put your own mark on.

Built in Quality

All homes are independently assessed during construction and covered by a 10-year NHBC Buildmark, Premier Guarantee or other warranty provider. The first 2 years are covered by Crest Nicholson’s own dedicated customer service team.

Security and low level maintenance are built in from the design stage and every home undergoes a '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

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

Enjoy your new home immediately

When you buy a new home, you can move in as soon as it is finished.

There's no need to spend money or time redecorating and repairing your new home. Depending on the stage of construction, you'll be able to personalise your new home with a variety of finishing touches.

Home buying process - A helping hand

There are a number of purchasing schemes available with new build homes which aren’t available on second hand properties.

These schemes can 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 be a guaranteed* cash buyer for your existing homes.

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.

If you are a first time buyer or have previously owned a home but don’t any longer, you may be able to purchase with Home Reach, part buy-part rent.

Buy up to 75% of a new home and pay a low monthly rent on the remaining share. Your budget decides the size of the share you buy, rather than the size of your new home. If buying outright isn’t an option for you, part buy-part rent offers an alternative route to own a new home.

Our Sales Executives 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, providing a simpler, smoother and less stressful experience.
