Five reasons to buy new with Barratt Homes

Post Thumbnail

With so much variety and choice available to buyers, the process of purchasing a home can often be full of big decisions. From choosing between house types and priority amenities, to locations and budgets, buyers really do have a lot to think about. But, there is one decision that should be a no-brainer, and that is choosing to buy new with Barratt Homes.

With financial incentives such as Help to Buy, and five star quality build guaranteed, as well as the opportunity to customise your home’s fixtures and fittings, new homes boast so many advantages that give even the most indecisive buyers the confidence they need to say yes.

With an extensive range of city and suburban developments across the North East and Highlands, five star housebuilder Barratt Homes has the perfect modern property for you, whether you’re a first-time buyer, up-sizer or re-sizer.

A multi award-winning company renowned for its high quality homes and excellent customer service, Barratt Homes leaves prospective buyers spoilt for choice. Whether you’re looking to settle in the country or make the most of the city’s highlights, there’s a new-build home for you.

Here, Barratt Homes lists the benefits of buying new.

1. Help to Buy

Introduced in 2013, the Help to Buy scheme aims to help first-time buyers take the first step onto the property ladder.

Available on homes priced up to £200,000, the scheme allows prospective buyers to secure a property with just a 5% and the Scottish Government can provide a 15% interest free equity loan, resulting in buyers only needing to secure an 80% mortgage from a bank or building society.

Barratt Homes currently has a range of homes and apartments across the North East eligible for the scheme.

For example, you could secure a two bedroom city centre apartment at Ocean from just £179,995, or a three bed home at Osprey Heights in Inverurie from £189,995.

2. Part Exchange

Buying a new home can be a stressful process, but with Part Exchange many of these worries needn’t be necessary.

Buyers who are looking to move to a larger property and have an existing home to sell can look to use Barratt Homes’ Part Exchange scheme – an incentive which allows customers to secure market value (based on two independent valuations) from the housebuilder for their current property, allowing for a quicker move with no estate agent fees or fuss.

This scheme is proving to be extremely popular, and is currently available on a range of properties including the stunning four bedroom Fenton at Kingseat from £290,995 and the three bedroom Traquair from £224,995 at Parkhill View in Kemnay.

3. Make Your Home Yours

A new-build property is the perfect blank canvas to make a house a home. From choosing your own wall tiles and wardrobes to adding extras such as additional wall plugs or chrome finishes, Barratt Homes’ personalisation options allow you to make your new home unmistakably and uniquely yours.

4. New is…warm

Keeping cosy during the bitter Scottish winter is easy in a new-build home. Barratt Homes’ properties are built to be up to 65% more energy efficient than the same sized older house with modern day improvements.

Smart techniques such as an airtight construction, insulated roofs and double-glazing all help to block out the chill, which not only keeps you nice and warm but also helps to keep the bills down. In fact, Barratt Homes properties can save you up to £1,410-per-year in energy spend compared with a Victorian house of the same style.

On the warmer days we’ve been enjoying recently, large double-glazed argon gas filled windows capture the sunshine and flood rooms with plenty of summer sunshine.

5. More Choice

With a range of developments across Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Inverness, all boasting a wide selection of house types, layouts and prices, Barratt has the perfect home for you.

If you’re looking for a traditional granite building in the city centre, think Westburn Gardens, Aberdeen. Seeking out a spacious detached property in the Highland countryside? Check out Ness Castle, Inverness. Or, are you a professional looking for a modern apartment with plenty to do on your doorstep? Try our sky high Ocean apartments near Aberdeen beachfront.

The choice is yours when you buy new with Barratt Homes.
