The benefits of a new build home

We are often asked what are the benefits of a new build home over an older one as our customers are always keen to compare them up. So we have decided to list them here for your benefit to help you make your decision!


  1. The clue is in the name – It’s new!

A new build house is exactly that: brand new. No one has lived there previously so there’s no wear and tear to deal with when you move in.

Also, no one has put their stamp on it. A drawback of buying a second-hand home is the fact many people may have lived in it over the years.

It is essentially a blank canvas giving you full reign over how it is decorated and styled!

  1. Choice

A new home also gives you a bigger range of choices of how you would like to personalise your new home. The choice of kitchen design, choice of units and worktops.and wall tiling.

  1. Peace of mind

With a new build home, the property will be covered by a 10-year warranty

This gives you protection against something going wrong including structural defects.

Another point to add to the pros and cons when comparing old and newer properties as you don’t get this insurance with older properties.

4. Built for today’s living

Each house will have been built with the modern person in mind from leading technology to home comforts each part of the house will feature the most up-to-date assets.

A living room will incorporate a family’s needs offering a space, say, adequate for cooking, eating, watching TV and children doing homework, all in a single open area.

There will be studies for working from home, much more a requirement now, in times of Covid.

  1. Technology

New houses can incorporate all the latest technology. At Dickie and Moore for example our heating system is controlled by Hive meaning you can control the temperature of your house right from your smartphone!

Each home is cabled for SKY, so the day you move in, it will be live and ready to use.

Another convenience too, with USB sockets, fitted so you can  easily charge your mobile

  1. Sustainability and environment

Tarnbrook Park has over 16 bird boxes incorporated in the layout and Hedgehog highways are also being created.

Homes are being built to the latest insulation standards, providing you with warmth and comfort with the added benefit of lower energy costs.

Each detached and semi-detached home  has their own  car  charging point
