What is New Homes Week?

New Homes Week (14-18 May 2018) is the chance for you to find out more about the massive benefits that buying a new build home gives you.

From the superb finishing touches and quality specifications, to the many excellent deals and offers house builders can offer you, including a 10 year warranty as standard. The peace of mind you get when buying a new build home is unrivalled.

And don’t forget the hugely popular Help to Buy equity loan scheme and the new Help to Buy ISA, that could be the difference between being able to afford your own home, and renting for another year or more.

This year, we’re going to be focussing on the cost of upgrading an older home to the standard of new build home. From the finishing touches to the windows and doors, we’ll be summarising how much it would cost you to get the same standard of finish on an older house as you do in a new build property. We think buying a new build home is a great option for you, and New Homes Week 2018 will give you all the reasons why.
