Why buy a new build?
Whether you’re looking to move to a larger home or are looking for your first property there are some real advantages to buying a new build home.
Generally new build properties take advantage of the latest advances in energy efficiency which may include the use of renewable energy sources for heating and for power. At the very least you can expect a new build home to be well insulated and decorated in very neutral tones – giving you a blank canvas from which to make your home your own.
Buying a new build means that you are far less likely to discover any hidden problems in your home that a property survey missed. Most new build homes come with a warranty that covers you for repairs from the original builder in the first couple of years. Year’s 3-10 of the new property life are then covered by insurance that will cover you for repairs which would be carried out by other contractors if any problems should occur.
Exciting New Property Developments in Bristol
If a new build in Bristol or the surrounding areas is what you are looking for, there’s plenty of good news in store for you. There are many new build developments that are in progress or are planned for the new year – in fact we had a tough choice of which developments to feature in this article. In the end we made our choices by developments that had a broad appeal and included properties for first time buyers right through to large families.
So, without further ado, here’s our ‘three of the best home developments in Bristol.
Beecham Place, Fosseway, Midsomer Norton, RADSTOCK, BA3 – Barratt Homes
Whilst not strictly in Bristol, at just under 9 miles out of Bristol, we decided to include this Barratt Homes property development. Midsomer Norton is a thriving community that is well connected by public transport and road to both Bristol and Bath and is ideally situated within minutes of the motorway network for commuters to other areas.
The development will include 2, 3, 4 & 5 bedroom homes, so really does cater for all family sizes. Perhaps the best thing about this development is that it is newly announced. Work has not yet commenced on the development. Visiting the information pages on the Barratt website shows an artists impression of the development and a chance to register your interest in a home. We’d recommend doing this as soon as possible, demand for properties of this type will be high.
Abode, Bedminster Road, Bristol, BS3 5PE – Redrow Homes
Closer to Bristol for our second property development is Abode, on the Bedminster Road. This property development is close to local amenities and a doctor’s surgery. Not only that, the development includes a good range of 2, 3 & 4 bedroom homes that will be built to a high specification. These new homes by Redrow promise to achieve an excellent ‘B rating’ for energy efficiency meaning they are 81-90% energy efficient!
