Old vs New


Old vs New

Are you looking at buying a home but torn between a New Build and an older property?

Here at Next Home we can help to narrow down what is best for you and what you really want out of a property!

New Builds:       

  • Brand new properties – it’s yours, no one has lived in it before you
  • NHBC 10 year building warranty as standard
  • Unlikely that you will have to carry out any repairs on the property
  • Incentives are often in place – such as part exchanges on your own home, free flooring/white goods or turfing or maybe help towards your deposit and/or legal fees
  • If you’re starting from scratch, often you’ll be able to pick items such as the kitchen and bathrooms for your new home
  • You are able to use Help to Buy

Older property:

  • Chance to carry out renovation such as fitting a brand-new kitchen or adding an extension – making the property unique to you
  • The area is already built – chances are you won’t be living on a building site whilst waiting for the rest of a development to be finished
  • Chances are the property will have more character
  • Likely to have larger rooms
  • You’re able to use LIFT Scheme
