Why buy new

June 2018

We’re backing ‘New Homes Week 17’ which runs from 15 to 21 May and is organised by the Home Builders Federation.

With buyers becoming more selective than ever, both existing home owners and those looking to get their foot on the property ladder are now looking to new builds as a more attractive option than older properties.

Buying a new Story Home allows you to start afresh with a blank canvas. Each home is filled with bags of potential allowing you to personalise it to suit your taste. Choose from a range of stylish, high specification kitchen furniture and bathroom fittings, cosy carpets and even contemporary Amtico flooring to turn your house into the ideal home for you and your family (some items carry an extra cost)*.

New build homes are the perfect choice no matter what your circumstance, whether you’re a first time buyer, upsizing or downsizing there are plenty of incentives offered by Story Homes, including Part Exchange or HOME scheme. You can also take advantage of the Government backed Help to Buy scheme which is aimed at helping buyers who have a deposit of at least 5% to buy a new build home up to the value of £600,000.

As well as being able to make use of the many incentives and schemes available to you, our homes are built using quality materials throughout and with energy efficiency in mind which gives you lower running costs. The cost of running a 4-bedroom detached property could be on average £1,050 per annum, saving around £1,410 in comparison to a 4-bed Victorian equivalent house^. Each home also comes with a 10 year build cover warranty provided by the NHBC, LABC or Premier Guarantee (depending on your specific development), as well as a 2 year guarantee offered by Story Homes.
