What makes a Cumbrian Home different to other new build properties?

There are often many differences between one new build home and another so anyone looking to purchase one should make sure they take this into consideration.

Most developers will tell prospective customers about the features of their new build home, however there are often fundamental differences or less obvious ones that ultimately affect the price and quality of the property you are buying.

Why new homes are superior to their ‘old’ rivals

When looking to move home, you might find yourself in a situation where you are dreaming about buying a quality new home but think, in reality, that you may only be able to buy an older second hand home. This, naturally, may lead to you dismissing new build prematurely. However, buying new offers the purchaser lots of advantages and can even save you money in the long run. Not only are there financial incentives to help people buy a new home, but there are also the savings you can make though greater energy efficiency and lower repair bills compared to that of an ‘older’ home.

Cost of upgrading an old home

Moving home is really exciting, but what are the chances of finding a house that doesn’t need a bit of maintenance or improvement?  That could be from a simple redecoration to a full refurbishment or extension.  You might like a challenge or a project and an old house with period features could be right up your street, but, unless you’re Nick Knowles, sometimes the prospect of DIY or putting your stamp on a house, can send shivers down the spine.
