Five reasons to buy a new build

New homes continue to spring up across England. According to government statistics, 44,940 dwellings were completed between 1 April and 30 June 2022. A further 51,730 are under construction, with work already started on site.[1] In Farnborough, Hampshire, construction is well underway at the exciting new Sky Plaza development from Bellway Homes. The one- and two-bedroom apartments are just a five-minute walk from the town centre, ideal for commuters into London as well as for homebuyers looking to get the best out of living in Farnborough.

The newly launched show apartment at Sky Plaza is providing potential buyers with a glimpse of the contemporary, high-quality homes that are available to purchase. The properties feature bright, open plan kitchens, spacious living areas and luxurious bathrooms. Bedrooms are cosy and serene, and come with the added option of fitted wardrobes for convenience.

Emma Jones, Sales and Marketing Director at Bellway Homes comments:

“The quality of the homes at Sky Plaza, along with their location, make them a compelling choice for buyers. London Waterloo is just a 38-minute train journey from Farnborough station, which is a 15-minute walk from Sky Plaza. Shops, gyms, nurseries, schools, colleges and more are also within easy reach. It’s the full package when it comes to easy living, complete with all the advantages of buying a brand-new home.”

The benefits of buying a new build home are well documented.

  • Firstly, there’s the chance to own a home that has the very latest energy efficiency measures. That’s great news for the planet as well as for the buyer’s pockets as it will reduce energy bills – and who wouldn’t want lower energy bills these days?
  • Buying new also means buying chain-free. Given that one in five sales are falling through at present, being able to buy a home without fear of a chain collapsing makes the whole process far less stressful.[2]
  • Families buying new builds also have plenty of scope to personalise their new home before they ever set foot in it. Rather than moving into a property decorated to suit the previous owner’s tastes, and that likely comes with a long list of DIY jobs, new build owners can design everything from flooring and tiling to kitchen surfaces and fixtures around their personal preferences.
  • The fact that newly built homes, such as those at Sky Plaza, come with appliances means that buyers can save money too. They won’t face the expense and hassle of having to source, buy and fit appliances the moment they move in – it’s all taken care of and included in your new home.
  • New builds often offer money-saving incentives, as well. As an example, at Sky Plaza, anyone who reserves a home with Help to Buy this month will receive made to measure curtains and blinds for their entire property – another significant cost saving.

Finally, buying a new build provides peace of mind as all new homes in the UK come with a 10-year build warranty.
