The day you get the keys to that older property, the chances are the previous owners will be moving out as you are moving in. You are already exhausted but before the furniture lorry can unload, you need to go in and clean. Once the furniture and boxes are in the still less than clean house, all you have energy left for is to fall into bed. Sound familiar ?
The day you move into your brand new house everything is clean and fresh – you are the first family to use the bathroom and put food into the kitchen cupboards. You do not have to spend days cleaning years of grease, grime and mildew from kitchen and bathroom tiles. The carpets or wooden floors are all brand new. Your beautiful house is ready to become your home – just arrange your furnishings, sit back with a bottle of champagne, a smile and enjoy.
Unlike an older property, this one does not need you to constantly be working on it. Your heating is keeping the house warm instead of disappearing through the roof. You can relax in the knowledge that your brand new house will not be a money pit.
What's more, purchasing new homes is comparatively stress free - no bidding wars and no property chain. Once you put your deposit down you can relax in the knowledge that the house is yours.
Whilst normally a low deposit will be enough to secure the deal, some builders will take your old house in part exchange which saves a huge amount on estate agents fees. Equity options are often available which is of great help to first-time buyers and usually the builder can offer a mortgage with competitive interest rates and monthly repayments.
Reserve early and the builder will allow you to choose your kitchen, tiles and carpets. Also your new home is far safer than an old property with the installation of smoke alarms, fire doors, and fire-retardant materials. It will also be considerably more eco-friendly because of the degree of insulation, triple or quadruple-paned windows and efficient boilers and heaters.
So forget beamed ceilings covered in dust and cobwebs, spiders crawling in under ill-fitting skirting boards and general upkeep that is never-ending. Know that your new house will be virtually repair free for many years – you know it makes sense.
