Things To Look For When Purchasing A New Build House

When purchasing a new build house, you want to make sure you’re getting just what you’re after. New builds are fantastic and often built with the latest specifications, but there can be certain snags you might want to be aware of. By going into it with an open mind and knowing just what to look for, you can save yourself any potential hassle further down the line and know that you’ve looked into as much as you can prior to putting in your offer. Buying a house is expensive, so you don’t want to rush and want to make the most of it as you can. What are some top things you look for when purchasing a new build house? Let us know in the comments below; we’d love to hear from you.

The quality of materials that have been used in the build

The first thing you need to think about when purchasing a newly built house is the quality of materials that have been used. You want a house that has been well-built using materials that are made to last. Speak to the developer to find out what has been used before looking for yourself at what you think of it. 

If there are any snags in the build

New builds can be known for having snags, as with anything that’s brand new. To avoid this from being a problem, make sure you have a snagging survey where any potential issues will be identified and then can be sorted out before you move in. The last thing you want is to move in and then find out there are lots of issues that can’t get sorted when you’re already in.

Whether there might be any potential delays to the competition of the build

When buying a new build, you need to be aware there could be delays to the completion of the house. It could be due to the house itself having things that need to be finished, or perhaps the area isn’t quite ready, if it’s a new estate for example. If the area is being built from scratch, there will be things such as commercial grade pugmills potentially being used to produce concrete for the roads, planting to be done and fencing to construct. 

The area 

Another thing you want to check out is the area prior to moving in. There are many things you want to consider such as the public transport, places to eat and drink and the local schools. 

These are just a few things you want to look out for when it comes to purchasing a new build. There are often many benefits to purchasing a home that no one else has lived in before, but you also just want to ensure you’re getting what you’re paying for. Your house is the biggest purchase you’ll ever make after all, so it needs to be right! What are some top tips you have for purchasing a newly built home? Let us know in the comments.
