New Homes Week: Five reasons why you should buy a new build home


This year’s New Homes Week theme is ‘Tomorrow awaits: make it yours,’ and to celebrate, we are discussing five reasons why you should buy a new build property.

If you are tired of moving into houses that require thousands of pounds worth of renovations, or finding out that the seller’s end of the deal has collapsed when you are close to completion, it is well worth considering buying a new build home. From saving time on renovations to reaping the financial advantages of energy-efficiency, new build homes offer a plethora of benefits that make it the best option when buying a house. Here are our five top reasons why you should buy a new build home:

1: Renovation-Free: New Build Homes Need Minimal Work

One of the biggest advantages of buying a new build is the little-to-no renovation work required. The houses are newly designed and built, the interiors are modern, appliances new and under warranty… the list of benefits goes on. Moving into an old home can come with a plethora of design and structural issues, requiring repairs which can end up costing a lot more than you bargained for. Invest in a new home with the assurance that your money can go towards furnishing your new home, rather than rebuilding it.

At Yorkshire Country Properties, we proudly offer a diverse selection of homes across our three sites: Knowle Grange, Shepley; The Willows, Denby Dale and Whistle Bell Court, Skelmanthorpe. Whether you’re in search of a cosy one-bedroom cottage, or a spacious five-bedroom detached family home, we cater to a variety of needs and budgets. Discover your ideal home with us today.

2: Energy Efficient Housing: New Builds Save on Power

UK households are responsible for around 20% of the country’s carbon emissions, and with the government pledging to reach net zero by 2050, household emissions must decrease. New build homes succeed in battling that statistic have an average Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of A/B, while older houses have an average EPC rating of D/E. If you want to take a step towards a greener future – consider a new build home.

Due to rising prices, the cost of energy is a top priority for homeowners. New builds have more efficient boilers and appliances, better insulation and higher-efficiency central heating than their older counterparts, saving you money on your energy bills.

Several mainstream lenders, such as Nationwide, Barclays and NatWest, are now offering ‘green mortgages’, which provide preferential terms to energy-efficient homeowners, providing even more savings in the long run.

YCP homes benefit from a range of energy efficient features, from highly effective home insulation to energy efficient doors and windows. We prioritise every aspect of our supply chain with our customers’ needs at the forefront, ensuring that each home is energy efficient and cost-effective to run. PV solar panels are featured on selected plots, enhancing our dedication to creating lower carbon footprint homes and a greener future.

3: No Seller Chains: Buy New Homes Directly

Purchasing a chain-free property is far less stressful than buying a property with a chain. Chain-free purchases are made directly to the developer, so you don’t have to rely on anyone else for your purchase to go through. If just one person pulls out from a chain, the whole thing can collapse, which leads to great upset for the buyers. Don’t waste time fretting about other people’s house purchases – buy a chain-free new build and enjoy the effortlessness!

At YCP, purchasing your dream home is a breeze. Our dedicated sales team are located at our experience hub in Knowle Grange, Shepley, between 10am and 5pm, 7 days a week, ready to guide you through the process of acquiring your dream YCP home. Let us make your home buying experience smooth and stress-free.

4: New Build Warranty: 10-Year Guarantee

New build homes come with a 10-year warranty, which protects homeowners against structural issues or defects. When you purchase a new build home, you have peace of mind that the warranty will be your safety net against any issues that may occur. At Yorkshire Country Properties, we offer a 10-year Premier Guarantee, starting from the day you complete your purchase. Discover more about the Premier Guarantee here, or simply have a chat with our friendly sales team at our experience hub, located at Knowle Grange. We’re always here to assist you in any way we can.

5: Customisable: New Builds to Fit Your Style

New build homes are designed with modern living in mind, and if purchased off-plan (before it is built), you can choose the colour and style of your new home. Here at YCP, we offer full tailoring of your new property, allowing you to choose from a range of kitchens, flooring and Porcelanosa bathroom tiles - right up to finish of staircase, switches and sockets and even bathroom taps! At YCP, you can make your new home truly yours.
