New Year? New Home.

With a New Year comes new beginnings and for many, it’s time to start thinking about a new home. In this article, we will be discussing the benefits of new-build homes.

Health & wellbeing

According to research, more than two-thirds of homes are old, unhealthy and inefficient (Healthy Homes Barometer 2017).

Our careful fabric first approach to the construction, orientation and layout of new build homes has a huge impact on key health and wellbeing issues such as air quality, temperature and daylight.

The installation of Velux windows in many Blueoak developments provides a constant supply of fresh air even when a window is closed. Natural light is incorporated into every scheme we develop and we provide landscaped gardens as standard.

No upward chain

Buying and selling a house can be both stressful and expensive, especially where a large housing chain is involved. One of the biggest advantages of purchasing a new-build home from Blueoak is that there is no upward chain. As you are the first owner, you are not depending on anyone above you finding somewhere else to live – it makes moving much less hassle!

More economical

Our new-build homes are built for modern living. Everything inside is new and fit for purpose which means that you do not need to make allowance for repairs or ongoing maintenance. According to New Homes Week, you can save more than £50,000 when purchasing a new build home opposed to an older property.

Greater energy efficiency

Our new-build homes are also built to strict standards which make them more energy-efficient than older homes. Modern construction prevents damp while other features such as cavity walls, double glazing and insulation provide long term cost savings for the buyer and reduce your household’s carbon footprint.

Blank canvas

One of the biggest benefits of buying a new-build home is that they are a blank canvas, ready for you to put your stamp on and make it truly feel like “home”. When you purchase a Blueoak home off-plan, there are often further opportunities for personalisation. Buyers can choose their own kitchen surfaces, tiling, flooring, as well as other fixtures and fittings.

Structural warranty

New build homes come with a ten-year structural warranty which protects you from any major structural defects and will provide significant financial savings should any problems occur; giving you peace of mind and helping you to sleep easier!

Safer and more secure

New build homes are built to strict safety standards, which means they are safer and more secure than older properties. Fire-resistant materials and technology are used in. Our new-build properties often contain video entry systems as standard.
