Save hundreds of pounds on your energy bills with a brand new home^.

A brand new home or one that’s been lived in?

If a great location, award-winning design, the latest features and top-rated energy efficiency don’t sound like a great new adventure, let’s talk money.
Consumers buying a new build property are saving more than £400 per household^ on their energy bills as well as collectively helping to reduce the country's carbon emissions according to the latest report from the Home Builders Federation.

The benefits of buying a new build home are more important than ever as energy bills are set to rise by more than 50% from the end of April 2022.

Buying a new build home could produce a third of the annual carbon emissions produced by older properties which could prevent 2.4 tonnes of carbon each year for every household.

  • You could save an average of £435^ a year on your energy bills

  • The average new build home emits 2.38 tonnes^ less carbon each year

  • Despite new build homes being an average of 7.4% larger than older properties, new homebuyers are generating savings every month

  • Heating bills are on average, 59% cheaper for a new build property versus an older equivalent

  • 95% of new build properties are rated an EPC of A-C and the majority of those rated A or B^

  • With a new build, there’s no secret history, nothing hiding in the attic. What’s more, you can often add your own personal touch to a new build making it a little bit more you right from the start. It’s things like this that turn a house into a home.

    You can also rest assured that the drainage is good, the foundations sound, the walls well insulated, the fixtures and fittings designed for modern living and the craftsmanship top-notch. Especially as everything is backed with warranties extending up to 10 years.
