Why a new Story Home is a smart move

September 2015

Buying a new build Story Home can offer you a host of advantages compared to older-second hand homes. From incentives we may have on offer, to the savings which can be made through greater energy efficiency, there are plenty of reasons why you should consider buying new.

A new home offers a fresh start and is completely untouched by previous owners and any of their potentially poor DIY. This means there’s no need for any expensive and time-consuming renovations or repairs – it’s ready straight away! It offers the opportunity for you to showcase your own style and personality from day one. why-buy-new4

Story Homes’ Sales Manager Hayley Blair said, “One of the things our customers love most is having their very own blank canvas. With a Story Home they have the opportunity to tailor their home just how they want it such as selecting their preferred kitchen; one of the many extras we include as standard.

Careful consideration has been given to the diverse range of house types, which have been designed to meet the needs of modern living. For example our fully fitted kitchens are all open plan and many homes offer dining space and French doors leading out to the turfed garden. The majority of our homes also include an en-suite in the master bedroom.”

With the latest design and specifications being used, a Story Home ensures that the latest fixtures, fittings and energy efficient appliances come as standard. Not only does this make your brand new home better for the environment, but it means lower energy costs. Research from the NHBC Foundation and Zero Carbon Hub has shown that living in a new build home could result in savings of around 55% on gas and electricity – that’s over £1,300 a year for a 4-bedroom detached house.why-buy-new3

Hayley added, “The high quality and high specification build of our homes gives customers a real peace of mind when purchasing their new home. All our homes are covered by a 10-year home warranty which provides comprehensive protection and is completely free of charge to the buyer. We also strive to provide excellent customer care and earlier this year we received a ‘five star’ rating in the home building industry’s annual customer satisfaction survey; 96% of buyers said they’d recommend us to a friend.”

Several incentives are available such as our popular Part Exchange scheme which is now available on selected plots across our developments. Or the government initiative, Help to Buy, allows buyers to buy a new build home with only a 5% deposit.why-buy-new2
