Buying a new build home will save you money, says Yorkshire housebuilder
19 May 2016
Homeowners in Yorkshire and Humber spend nearly £800 a year on home improvement, says a new report from Barbour ABI, though local housebuilder Lovell Homes believes that this annual expenditure could be eliminated through purchasing a new build home.
Britain’s Home Improvement Report 2016 looks at trends in planning for households across the country and is based on the number of planning applications for residential improvements received by each planning authority compared with the estimate for the number of private homes within that authority. The findings give an insight into the finances of the average homeowner via region and how much money they are likely to spend improving their home.
Colette Armstrong, Sales Manager said: ““Buying a new home is a major purchase in anyone’s life, particularly if you are a first time buyer. Couple that with budgeting for building modifications and the whole process becomes extremely daunting and full of uncertainty. With a new build, homebuyers need not worry about home improvement costs spiralling out of control, which can often be the case once they embark on a project. “In a newly built property, homebuyers will also have the security of NHBC warranty for ten years and a two year builder’s warranty. All appliances are also under guarantee. “A new build home is ready to move in to and will not need any immediate home improvements, saving the homebuyer a significant amount of money year on year.”
Lovell Homes has two popular developments in Yorkshire, Lincoln Gardens in Doncaster and Lambert Hills in Skipton. Both have proved to be extremely popular with homebuyers in the area and the housebuilder believes that this is because people are looking for a straight forward, hassle free purchase with no work required, leaving time and money free for other things.
Colette adds: “The money saved from removing the need to change a property could be far better spent on home furnishings or even holidays. The homes at Lincoln Gardens and Lambert Hills are varied in size and specification, appealing to a wide range of homebuyers. This level of choice offers a stress free home buying journey for the purchaser from the outset. Purchasing a new build property offers better value for money in the long run.”
