Why buy a new build?

There is a great selection of new build properties in Northern Ireland, with developments spread throughout the entire province – ensuring a choice for everyone.

The decision to buy ‘new’ is currently a very popular option here and our local developers are supplying properties that are not only of the highest build standard and contemporary designs, but are also highly energy efficient!

The benefits of buying a new build property are numerous, however to help ensure that you make the right decision as to whether this is the right option for you, we have detailed some of the key advantages below: 

Chain free buying

Because you will be buying straight from the developer, there is no onward chain which significantly speeds up the buying process, meaning you can enjoy your home straightaway.

Energy efficient

New build homes are on average four times more energy efficient than older homes and therefore ‘greener’. This also means that they will save you money with lower heating bills.

As you like it

Many developers offer you a choice of designs and appliances, allowing you to customise your home to your own taste – giving you perhaps a choice of kitchen tiles, colour of carpets etc . Often if you buy before the build is completed, you may have some say over the layout of particular rooms and facilities included.

Protection and cover

All new homes in Northern Ireland, where the developer is registered, come with a 10 year warranty from the National House Building Council (NHBC) or other insurer, providing protection and cover for any problems with the build of your home.

A potential money saver

Newly build properties do not require any redecoration or improvements - no old lead paint to replace, no garish bedrooms to paint and no crumbling pointing. On many occasions carpets, curtains and other fixtures and fittings are supplied as part of the sale.

Suitable for first time buyers

New builds are often at the top of a first time buyers list because: - many developers offer shared ownership or shared equity schemes, making it easy for these buyers to get onto the market - they are also building one and two bedroom properties which are perfect starter homes, in terms of size and efficiency to run
