Why Buy New?

Aug 28, 2019

Here at Stone Real Estate, we deal exclusively with new build properties because we recognise the key qualities that make them a worthy investment.

While our impressive listings effortlessly showcase innovative design features and boast a range of technological features, we firmly believe that crossing the threshold into your new home should also give you peace of mind that you won’t be burdened by additional, hidden costs.

Where older properties may carry a hefty price tag to overhaul fixtures, fittings and interior design aspects, new builds offer the opposite. Maintenance costs are covered in the price of the property and, more importantly, developers must meet the standards of Building Rules & Regulations to make properties as energy-efficient as possible.

This means that our listings come equipped with features such as double-glazed windows, insulated walls and energy-efficient heating which helps you to save on energy bills. New build homes also come with an NHBC Warranty that protects insurance and covers structural defects. Cover starts as soon as you exchange contracts and can last up to a maximum of 10 years depending on the terms and conditions.

Better still, it is now easier to become the proud owner of a new home due to the emergence of the “Help To Buy” scheme. Allowing you the option to put down as little as a 5% deposit and available only for new builds, we are thrilled to be in a position to list properties that can turn hopeful applicants into fully-fledged homeowners.

Finally, our team of Area Geniuses work hard to ensure that you receive the expert guidance, reassurance and helpful tips during your journey from initial viewings to receiving the keys to your brand new abode.
