Why Buy New?

Whether you're a first time buyer, a growing family or looking to downsize to a low maintenance home, buying a new build property could be the smart, practical and greener choice.
Here are just some reasons why our customers say they chose a brand new home:

Why Buy New

The Chance to Personalise 

Because we release properties for sale 'off plan', our buyers can personalise their new home by selecting finishes such as the style of the kitchen, bathroom and the choice of tiles and flooring. Everything is installed and ready for when you move in and the rest of the house is a blank canvas on which to stamp your individual style. 

Why Buy New

Financial Help with your move

When you buy a new home, you get access to schemes that simply aren't available on the second hand market. These include the Government's Help to Buy initiative for first time buyers, the opportunity to Part Exchange your existing property, as well as help with selling your home through Smooth Move. Tilia Homes also offers additional incentives on selected properties such as mortgage contributions and discount for key workers.

Why Buy New

A Chain Free Move

Buying new means there is no upward chain. Your home purchase is likely to be faster, more straight forward and without the worry that your sale could fall through due to problems higher up the house buying chain which are out of your control.

Why Buy New

No DIY Disasters

The excitement of moving house can sooner disappear when faced with someone else's decorating tastes or hidden DIY disasters! Renovating a second hand  property can be time consuming and costly. Buying a new home means your property will be built to a high standard in line with modern building regulations with high performance and modern fixtures and fittings.

Why Buy New 

Low Energy Bills

Modern design and the use of energy efficient materials and appliances means the new homes are greener and cheaper to run than older properties. In fact, according to research by the Home Builders Federation (HBF), the fuel bills of a new build property are, on average 53% lower than those of a similar sized Victorian property. A more efficient home means you'll be lowering your families foot print too. 

Why Buy New

A 10-year Warranty

Your new home comes with the peace of mind of our own two year warranty and after sales care and a further 8 year Buildmark warranty from the NHBC (National House Building Council). The NHBC also carry out independent checks at key stages when your home is being built.  Here is a comprehensive guide to an overview of the cover provided by NHBC Buildmark and practical tips for moving in, 'how to...' - Guide-to-your-new-home.pdf (nhbc.co.uk).
