Welcome to New Homes Week 2024!

It’s New Homes week 2024! At Bowbridge Homes, we’re thrilled to celebrate the week-long event dedicated to showcasing the numerous advantages of new build homes. From Monday 26 February to Sunday 3 March, we join homeowners, builders, and associated organisations in highlighting the benefits that new homes bring to individuals and communities alike.

Compared to older homes, new builds boast cutting-edge energy-saving features that significantly reduce monthly energy bills. On average, owners of new build homes could save up to £184* per month on monthly energy costs, amounting to a substantial £2,200 annually. With 85% of new builds achieving an A or B EPC rating, it’s clear that these homes lead the way in energy performance especially as less than 5% of older properties achieve the same energy performance.

Furthermore, recent regulations ensure that new homes built from 2023 incorporate sustainability features as standard, including energy and water-efficient fixtures and fittings, as well as electric charging points. This commitment to sustainability not only benefits homeowners but also contributes to a greener future for all.

Beyond energy efficiency, the simplicity of the buying process for new build homes is a significant advantage. Our dedicated sales advisors across each of our developments act as a single point of contact, guiding buyers through every step of the process. Additionally, we offer a range of options to make new homes more affordable, such as part exchange schemes and competitive incentives such as deposit contributions. Not only do we aim to make buying your dream home more affordable, but less stressful too by offering an Assisted Move scheme to cover the dreaded estate agent fees, back-and-forth communications, and additional stresses that traditionally come with moving house.

Peace of mind is paramount when purchasing a new home, and new build properties offer just that. With no hidden histories or costly repair works to contend with, homeowners can enjoy a move-in-ready property that is built to the highest standards. Everything will be brand new, fresh, and a complete blank canvas to make your own, without the extra worries of renovating or repairing a previous owner’s poor DIY project! We also subscribe to the Consumer Code for Home Builders and provide an independent 10 Year Warranty, allowing you to have peace of mind for years to come.

Finally, new build homes represent excellent value for money. With incentives such as deposit contributions and free upgrades, coupled with long-term savings on running costs, investing in a new build property is a wise financial decision. When considering the costs associated with bringing older properties up to new build standards (which is estimated to cost more than £70,000!), the value proposition becomes even more compelling.

We have a range of new build homes across our sites in Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire ready and waiting to find their new owners. If you are considering moving into a new build home of your own this 2024, get in touch to discuss your preferences and we’ll arrange an appointment for you to come and view your chosen property in person!
