Marcus Evans, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Regeneration shares the five key advantages of choosing a new build home for your next move:

1. Help to Buy

All homes at Centenary Quay are available through the Government’s Help to Buy Scheme, enabling house hunters to find their first home or take a bigger step up the property ladder. Under the initiative, prospective buyers could be eligible for an interest free equity loan for up to 20% of the property value enabling them to secure your dream home with just a 5% deposit. The remaining 75% is covered by a mortgage, allowing buyers to purchase their dream home for less.

2. Peace of mind

All new-homes are independently assessed during construction and covered by a 10-year warranty. Home 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.

3. Value for money

New homes are built to a much higher specification than the majority of older homes, so you often get more for your money. They have central heating, double-glazing, floor and wall insulation as standard. Other features also including fitted kitchens with integrated appliances and stylish bathrooms.

4. Tailored to your lifestyle

New homes are built to make use of every inch of space. Often in older properties, with dated layouts, living space goes unused. New homes on the other hand provide large flexible living spaces than can be tailored to your lifestyle. Whether you’re single, a couple, a growing family or retired, you will find the right layout for your needs.

5. A sustainable choice

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 appliances. This means they have lower running costs compared to traditional homes.

And finally, they’re ready to move in and you have the freedom to make your own choices

One of the core benefits of a new home, is just that, it is brand new. This means that they’re ready to move in and to enjoy without any concern about what has been glossed over by previous owners. Residents need not worry about renovations or making do with previous residents’ decisions. When moving into a brand-new home, residents can focus on making their house their own straight away.

Marcus Evans, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Regeneration continued: “Home ownership is an important ambition for many people and likely the largest investment most of us will make in our lifetime. However, many of us are not aware of the many benefits of buying new. Our Centenary Quay development in Southampton has a number of different house types to suit all needs.
