Persimmon Homes

Why buy new?

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. They're warmer and more cost-effective too - what are you waiting for?


Here are our top 12 reasons for buying a new home…

1 Make your own mark

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 create your perfect home, just the way you dreamed of, from the day you move in.

You can customise and enhance your home with our range of Finishing Touches including wardrobes, curtain packages and garden upgrades.

2 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.

3 Everything’s new

From your efficient modern central heating system, 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.

4 Save money on bills & be more sustainable

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.

5 Peace of mind warranty

All our new homes come with a ten-year insurance-backed warranty, with the first two years covered directly by Persimmon. In the unlikely event you ever need to make a claim, our Customer Care Team will be happy to provide all the help you need.

6 Pricing assurance

You can have peace of mind knowing that the price you agree at reservation is the final price you'll pay. There's no outbidding or worries about legal offers not being successful. Say goodbye to price wars. 

7 Your money goes further

If you’re renovating or improving a second-hand property, things like a new roof, kitchen or boilers will cost you thousands of pounds. However, with a new build, everything’s brand new so you don’t need to worry about unexpected bills for many years!

8 Fewer chains

Few things are more annoying in the home buying process than a time-consuming chain you can’t control. Buying new limits the chance of getting involved in one. On certain plots, we can help even further by offering Home Change or Part Exchange, making your move as easy as possible.

9 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.

10 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.

11 High-spec modern 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.

12 Experience on tap

You’ll have access to independent mortgage advisors and solicitors who specialise and understand the new-build market. Their experience can help the whole process run more smoothly and an added bonus is they can have access to exclusive mortgage lender products.
