Top 10 reasons to buy a new home


Fresh, clean and totally yours to style any way you wish, there’s a real thrill in buying a new home. Knowing that you’re the first person to live in it somehow makes it feel even more special.

Benefits of investing in a new home

Here are our top 10 reasons for buying a new home…

1. A shorter chain

You’ll be buying your new home directly from us, which means if you’re a first-time buyer, there’ll be no chain at all. If you’re already a homeowner, there’s no upward chain so you’ll be less likely to be caught in a time-consuming, stressful chain. On certain plots we can help even further by offering Home Change or Part Exchange, making your move as easy as possible.

2. High-spec living

When you buy a new Persimmon home you’ll have a brand new fitted kitchen, bathroom suite, and in some cases, an en suite. Depending on the build stage, you can also add your own personal touches by upgrading items such as kitchen units, flooring or lighting by choosing from our Finishing Touches range.

3. Great incentives

We have a range of schemes that can make it easier for you to buy your dream property including Home Change and Part Exchange. We also offer weekly promotions such as Home of the Week with fantastic savings and incentives – make sure you register your details against your chosen development to get all the best offers.

4. Everything’s new

From your efficient modern central heating system, through to secure windows and doors, all elements of your new home are brand new! This means you’re making use of the newest technology and all of the manufacturers’ warranties that come with it.

5. Modern living

Our new homes are expertly-designed to make the most of all the available living space, often with the advantage of built-in storage areas and the option to add wardrobes.

6. Feel secure

New homes are far safer and more secure than older buildings as they include robust security locks on doors and windows. Fire safety includes the installation of smoke alarms, fire doors (where applicable) and fire retardant materials. Additional Finishing Touches options are also available for alarms and security lighting.

7. Save money on bills

New homes are more efficient so, as soon as you move in, you’ll be saving money on energy bills. New cost-effective heating systems, first-rate loft insulation and draught-free double glazed windows and doors mean more pounds in your pocket from day one.

8. More time, money and freedom

With less chance of time-consuming repairs or maintenance to do at weekends you’ll have the freedom and extra cash to enjoy your spare time doing the things you love best.

9. Peace of mind warranty

You’ll get a 10-year insurance-backed new home warranty from a major warranty provider. During the first 2 years of this, we must put right any matters that don’t meet the warranty-provider’s high standards. During the next 8 years you can use the warranty to ensure any major defects are repaired. You may be assured that all our homes are built to high safety standards and meet strict regulations.

10. A fresh start

A new home offers you a blank canvas. There’s no need to live with someone else’s décor as everything is new. You can customise and enhance your home with our range of Finishing Touches including wardrobes, curtain packages and garden upgrades. You can create your perfect home, just the way you dreamed of, from the day you move in.
