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?

1. Make your own mark

A new home offers you a blank canvas. There's no need to live with someone else's décor - 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 jobs to do at weekends, you'll have the freedom and extra cash to spend your spare time doing the things you love best. 

Find your ideal home today. 

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 and 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. Your money goes further

With a new build, everything's brand new so you don't need to worry about unexpected bills for many years! That means more to spend on your garden, and making your home exactly how you want it.

7. 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 with one. On certain plots, we can help even further by offering Home Change or Part Exchange, making your move as easy as possible.

8. Feel secure

New homes are far safer and more secure than older buildings. Additional Finishing Touches are also available for alarms and security lighting. 

9. 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.

10. Be part of a new community

In a newly built development, you're in a great place to meet people and build friendships, especially with shared amenities such as playgrounds and allotments.

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.

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 they have the added bonus of having access to exclusive mortgage lender products.
