Buying a new home under Covid-19 & Social Distancing

With the recent news of the ease of lockdown restrictions during the coronavirus pandemic, you may be wondering where that leaves you when it comes to buying a new home?

Whilst some may have put their buying plans on hold, there are still ways to find your dream home under social distancing restrictions. If you’re thinking about buying a new home and in some cases, a ‘New Build’, we have many properties available and will be able to guide you through the process, even from a distance.

Some of the things we can do to help you purchase a home with Social Distancing in place:

  • Hold a call with you to discuss financial eligibility and talk you through the new build buying options available.

  • Arrange a call with our mortgage adviser so you can discover how much you will be able to borrow and get the best rates.

  • Arrange virtual tours and answer all questions about a new property you would like to view to help you get the best insights possible.

  • We are arranging socially distanced appointments at our offices – ask us about viewings and the logistics for the property you are interested in.

Why Buy a New Build Property?

Some prospective homeowners may wish to invest in a ‘New Build’ (a more recently built home, usually within a new development area) rather than an older property, for many reasons. Some of the benefits of purchasing a New Build include:

  • Affordability – You can purchase New Build homes via incentive and Government schemes such as Help to Buy and Shared Ownership.

  • You will be the first owner of the home, meaning there will be no buying chain and make the process more straight forward.

  • Some New Build properties may come with a warranty.

  • Many New Build homes are more economical to run with lower costs for bills, due to being built to a modern high standard.

  • Sometimes, if the property is still being built, you can work with the construction company to personalize the build such as kitchen styles and other fixtures and fittings.
