Why buy new?

Why buy a new home? There are so many advantages to buying a new home, and even more when buying a new SJ Roberts Home – whether you are a first time buyer or a seasoned home owner, here’s 6 reasons to buy a new home!

1. It’s New!

As your home is new, maintenance will be low and you won’t need to think about modernising, updating, refurbishing or redecorating for many years – making it perfect for couples or families with busy lives.  Also many of SJ Roberts new homes are fitted with Upvc double glazing, fascias and soffit boards, which only require cleaning as maintenance.

2. Use Less Energy

Your new SJ Roberts home is built to the latest Building Regulations therefore when compared to most older houses your new home will use less energy; it is built with enhanced insulation and is equipped with water efficient fittings such as showers and dual flush toilet cisterns – making your new home great for the environment and your pocket!

3. New Home Warranty (LABC)

All SJ Roberts Homes come with a LABC new home warranty. This insurance backed policy covers purchasers against all qualifying defects for the first two years. During the next eight years the warranty provides cover against major damage arising from structural or drainage defects.

4. Safety and Security

SJ Roberts homes are built to the latest safety standards using fire-resistant materials and linked smoke alarms. Doors and windows are fitted with window locks and British Standard 5 lever locks to main doors making them safer and more secure than older homes.

5. Help To Buy

Government Help To Buy Equity loans are available to first time buyers as well as homeowners looking to move but only for newly built homes valued at under £600,000.  SJ Robert Home’s new homes development – Sweetlake Meadow – in Shrewsbury, Shropshire offers Help to Buy, why not take a look.

6. Personalisation

If you buy an SJ Roberts Home off-plan (or when your new home is at a predetermined build stage – please speak to our Sales Negotiator) you will be able to choose your fixtures and finishes. This gives you the opportunity to personalise your new home from the out-set.
