Why buy new?
At Drew Smith we understand that it takes a lot of time and energy to find your perfect home and the decision to buy a new build or older property can be a big one. With some of our own team purchasing a new build from Drew Smith we asked them why they chose to purchase a new build home.
So why buy new? There are lots of reasons why buying a brand-new home makes a lot of sense. Here are our ten reasons to help you make your own decision.
- Modern design
Every Drew Smith home offers something for everyone with a variety of designs and layouts to choose from to suit different lifestyles and price ranges. Whether it is open-plan, family living space, room for home-working, or the privacy of a master en suite, a new home offers contemporary properties built to our traditionally high standards, which you can personalise to suit your style.
While areas of living space can often go unused in older properties, our new homes are designed to reflect modern needs and make the most of all the space available.
- Blank canvas
You’ll be the first in your property and everything will be fresh, bright and clean, untouched by previous owners and just waiting to become your home. Moving into a second-hand place often means living with someone else’s style – changing this can become costly.
Your new Drew Smith home will have a contemporary kitchen and bathroom and you won’t need to worry about the expense of costly upgrades, such as double glazing.
A new home can provide you with a blank canvas and depending on what stage of the build you buy at; you can select a variety of styles and finishes to personalise your home.
- Energy efficient
Buying a new build means you’ll be getting a high quality home that will not only stand the test of time, but should also save you money every year. New homes are around 65% more energy-efficient, use 30% less water and are on average, 50% cheaper to run than an equivalent Victorian house, keeping you warm in the winter and saving you money on your utility bills.
Drew Smith are also working hard to reduce the size of our carbon footprint when we develop sites, and energy efficiency standards and CO2 emissions in new homes built in England are some of the best in the world.
With no need to wait for existing owners to leave, you can move into a new home as soon as it’s complete. This reduces the house-buying chain and the stress and uncertainty that is often associated with moving and can make your own home more attractive to buyers.
- So much choice
From a contemporary new kitchen to modern en suites and with many upgrades and options available, part of the excitement of buying a new home comes with choosing all those features that make a house a home. Depending upon the build stage when you reserve, you’ll have a choice of tiles for your kitchen and bathroom as well as kitchen worktops and doors, so you can create the look to suit you.
- Peace of mind
Every Drew Smith home comes with a 10-year ‘Buildmark’ warranty provided by the National House Building Council (NHBC), which covers any major defects to the structure of the property, or in its construction. We also include our own two-year guarantee on the property, with a customer care service, which involves 24- hour, 365-day-a-year call-out cover for emergencies, giving you further peace of mind.
- Quality features
New homes are built to a higher standard than ever before and with better specifications than older homes, you can get much more for your money. Drew Smith has brand partners to ensure high quality fixtures and fittings in its bathrooms and kitchens, including Porcelanosa ceramic tiles, Ideal Standard bathrooms and a range of high-quality branded appliances. Designed to comply with building regulations set by the Government, which are continually being improved, your new home will be built to the highest level.
