Buying a home

Why buy new?

Here at Kingsbury Stone, we deal exclusively with new build properties because we recognise the qualities that make them a worthy investment.

 

Reduced maintenance costs

While our listings showcase innovative design and boast a range of technological features, we firmly believe that crossing the threshold into your new home should also give you peace of mind that you won’t be burdened by additional hidden costs.

Where older properties may carry a hefty price tag to overhaul fixtures, fittings and interior design after purchase, new builds offer the opposite: Maintenance costs are covered in the price of the property and, more importantly, developers must meet the standards of building rules and regulations to make properties as energy-efficient as possible.

Additional features

This means that our listings come equipped with features such as double-glazed windows, insulated walls and energy-efficient heating which helps you to save on energy bills. New build homes also come with an NHBC Warranty that protects insurance and covers structural defects. Cover starts as soon as you exchange contracts and can last up to a maximum of 10 years depending on the terms and conditions.

Help to Buy

Better still, it is now easier for first time buyers to become the proud owner of a new home due to the emergence of the Help to Buy scheme. It allows you allows you the option to put down as little as a 5% deposit and is available only for new builds.

Expert advice

Finally, our team works hard to ensure that you receive expert guidance, reassurance and helpful tips during your journey from initial viewings to receiving the keys to your brand new abode.
