New Homes Week promotes benefits of buying new

The benefits of buying a new home will be promoted by the Home Builders Federation (HBF) during a special New Homes Week running from 16 – 22 May.

Superior build quality, energy savings and a 10-year warranty are just some of the advantages that the HBF will be highlighting during the week.

It’s a message that Leicestershire-based housebuilder Davidsons Homes has been promoting to their homebuyers since the company formed – and it’s clear that buyers are appreciating the benefits of buying new.

Stephanie King, Sales Director for Davidsons Homes, said: “The feedback from our buyers is that purchasing a new home has given them fantastic peace of mind. They can relax and enjoy their new home, safe in the knowledge that they don’t need to worry about unexpectedly high energy bills or something going wrong in their new home as their warranty covers them for 10 years.

“It’s great that the HBF is promoting all the benefits of buying new throughout their New Homes Week and we hope that more buyers will begin to appreciate all the advantages that a brand new home can bring.”

The HBF has estimated that the costs of upgrading an old property to the high specifications of new homes is in the region of £45,000, including nearly £9,500 on insulation and guttering, over £6,000 on double glazed windows and doors, nearly £5,000 on decorating and £4,400 on new central heating.

Not only that, but newbuild buyers don’t need to contend with previous owners’ dodgy décor and DIY bodges as their brand new home gives them a blank canvas to personalise and make their own.

Stephanie continued: “Not only are new homes more energy-efficient and better for the environment, but they also bring many other benefits to the communities around them.

“We have invested millions of pounds in the areas around the homes we build and our developments have also generated hundreds of new jobs, bringing a further boost to the community.”
