How to buy a new build house?

Look for housing in the area you would like to live in. Depending on if you’re looking to buy an existing building, or you’ll be looking to buy off-plan (When a house hasn’t been built yet), then you can scan the property market or look at local homebuilder projects. If you’re new to the area, or not aware of local building works, contact your local estate agents. They can advise you on the properties available and on their way. Grab yourself a mortgage in principle from a mortgage advisor and visit the property or the show home. If you’re happy with the build of the property, you can reserve one or make an offer. Appoint yourself a conveyancing solicitor to ensure the value of the house reflects the sum of money you’re offering and spots any potential issues with the home. Proceed as you normally would when buying a property, then after exchanging contracts, visit the property and make a snagging list of all the issues you feel haven’t been completed to an acceptable standard. Doing this before you complete and move in, avoids the excuse of damage being due to wear and tear caused by you moving in.

Is buying a new build a good investment?

New builds are typically in better condition than older properties, meaning lower repair and maintenance costs per year. They are built to modern specifications and regulations, so they will be more energy efficient. You’re able to consult with the builders for anything you want done to the build if it’s still in progress. New builds don’t have owners in them, so you avoid the house you’re buying being part of a property chain. Typically, new builds are more expensive than older properties. Mortgage lenders are stricter on providing mortgages as they’re seen as having an increased risk to have the property value fall in the early years. Due to this, they can demand higher deposits. If you’re buying an off-plan property, then you might experience delays if the construction gets held up.

How long does it take to buy a new build?

Buying a new build house takes roughly 6-8 weeks to get from having your offer accepted to exchanging of contracts. From there you’re usually looking at another couple of weeks for completion. This is if the property has been built and you’re not looking at an off-plan property, to which you’ll have to get an estimate from the home builders.
