Why buy new?

There are so many reasons why buying new is the right choice for you!

Whilst older homes or a renovation project may initially sound appealing, they often come with huge repair and refurbishment costs. Off putting? We think so too!

So, if you’re looking for a stunning new home you’ve come to the right place. Here’s our top reasons why buying new is best...

Highly energy efficient

Buying a new build home has many benefits when it comes to saving energy – and money. They are built to the very latest energy efficiency standards meaning you can save thousands on your utility bills by buying new. In fact, recent research by the Home Builders Federation (HBF) has revealed that owners of a new build home can save up to a staggering £2,200* a year on their energy bills. So, in a new build home, you’ve got the power!

Better for the planet!

New homes also produce less carbon as they need to use less energy to heat up. It’s believed that a new build house is 55%* more energy efficient than an upgraded Victorian home and research has found that around 84%* of new homes have an EPC rating of A-B, while only 4%* of existing properties achieved the same rating.

Good insulation, double glazing and airtight windows all contribute to a reduction carbon emissions by 6%*. This means by buying new you’re protecting the planet, and your wallet.

Save on renovation costs

With a new Avant home there’s no hidden history to contend with. You won’t uncover that you need a full re-wire or that your boilers on the brink, because everything in your home is… you guessed it... new!

This means that by buying a new Avant home, you could save more than £70,000**! The Home Builder’s Federation has calculated that the cost of bringing a three-bedroom semi-detached home up to the standard of a new home would total £73,271.80** in repairs and renovations. Who doesn’t want to save over £70,000?! Plus, not only does this save you money, but it saves your valuable time.

With Avant you’ll receive a brand new kitchen of your choice, with integrated premium Hotpoint appliances. All appliances are modern and high-tech complete with manufacturer warranties. Likewise, the bathroom is fitted with high-spec, modern sanitaryware that not only looks sleek but is practical too.

New just for you

Your home is built especially for you. With no one having ever lived in your home before, you’ll be the first to celebrate all those special milestones in your space and you’ll never receive old occupant’s post!

Peace of mind as standard with a 10 year warranty

With a new Avant home, you’ll receive a two-year builder warranty, plus a further eight years Buildmark warranty from the NHBC. Throughout the build of your home, the NHBC carry out inspections to ensure that the quality of your home is top notch. In the unlikely event that something goes wrong with your home, your warranty ensures you’re protected. Now that’s something you don’t get with a second-hand home!

Blank canvas

One of the most exciting things about buying new is that you’re starting from scratch in an immaculate unlived-in interior.

When you move into your beautiful new Avant home it will be handed over to you as a pristine blank canvas, with perfect white walls, brand new fixtures and fittings and the kitchen of your choice. This allows you to immediately begin adding your flair to your space, tailoring it to your style and the trends you love. You don’t need to strip wallpaper or rip out a dated old bathroom suite to get going, simply move in and begin personalising. From panelling to half height painted walls, the opportunities are endless.

No chain

When you’ve got your heart set on a home, the last thing you want to contend with is chains and endless delays.

One of the huge perks of buying new is having no upward chain. You’re not waiting for a seller to move into their new home, or find a home, and your Sales Advisor will keep you informed of your expected completion timeframe throughout the build of your home. Win, win.

New community

With a new development, comes a new community. Everyone on an Avant development is new, meaning the community spirit on our sites is very strong as residents put down roots and make friends for life. Avant homeowners have been known to create neighbourhood WhatsApp chats and Facebook pages, start clubs, host development parties and BBQs, and create dog walking groups.

Plus, there’s a huge economic benefit to a new community being built, with businesses seeing the benefit of new residents shopping local. Our new developments also create a whole host of employment opportunities for local people including those working on the construction of our homes and those selling them, right through to our supply chain.

We meant it when we said there’s lots of reasons why new is best! So, if you’re after a low maintenance home, that’s ready for you to personalise from day one, has low energy bills and is better for the environment, then hands down, a new Avant home is the choice for you.
