Why Buy New?

Does a home that's a blank canvas, has never been lived in before and comes with a 10 year warranty appeal to you? If so, these are just some of the countless reasons why you should buy new.

There's so many ways that you can personalise your new home from the moment we start to build it for you and in every aspect. You can choose from a beautiful range of kitchens* and optional upgrades, including bathrooms, appliances, carpets, flooring and tiling. The combination of styles are endless and tailored to your taste, making it truly personal to you. Your home, your way.

From interior design features to more practical options such as alarm systems, garden fencing and additional power points, we’ll not only give you the chance to personalise your home, but we’ll also guide you through it ensuring your home is adapted completely to your lifestyle.

A new home is just that....new

A new home is just that… new. You’ll be the first person to make memories in your home and when you receive the keys, everything inside it is brand new and unused.

The high quality technology you’ll find in your home will make your life easier in so many ways. You don’t need to worry about anything breaking as each appliance in your home is brand new and comes with a manufacturer warranty (just make sure to read your manuals and register them though).

You’ll be the first to use your oven, so you won’t need to worry about a deep clean to get rid of years of someone else’s cooking mishaps. And you’ll be the first to fire up your heating, not only will you no longer need Mum and Dad’s permission or be told to put on a jumper, but you’ve got that guarantee that you can heat your home efficiently and with ease.

Energy efficiency

Your new home is built with the latest energy saving equipment and insulation, increasing the energy efficiency of your new home, giving you peace of mind that not only are your monthly bills likely to be lower than they would be in an older home, but that you’ll also be improving your carbon footprint.

Gleeson homes have a higher energy efficiency rating than that of other housebuilders, with 98% of our homes having an EPC rating of A or B, compared to only 82% of all other housebuilder homes.

This higher energy efficiency rating means that the average combined electricity and gas annual bill for a Gleeson home is just £721 a year, which works out at £60 per month or less than £14 per week, the cost of a takeaway! This is £35 per month lower than the national average.

Let’s think about this for a moment… over a 25 year period, you could be saving £12,000 just on utility bills.

Peace of mind comes as standard

We’re committed to building quality, affordable homes and delivering a service to you from the moment you meet us. The NHBC carry out key stage inspections throughout the build process alongside our internal inspection processes, to ensure build quality throughout. Our commitment to quality doesn’t stop once we hand over your keys.

After key release we commit to a two year Gleeson warranty, which is regulated by the NHBC 10 year Buildmark Warranty to give you absolute trust, peace of mind and comfort in your new home.

This means that in the unlikely event that any issues do arise, you’re covered for 10 years and will always have someone to support you.

Your new home is a blank canvas ready for you to add your personal touches

A new home is a blank canvas. There is no need to worry about stripping wallpaper, sanding down skirting boards or ripping up a flowery carpet when you buy a Gleeson home. Step inside a newly plastered and painted home which gives you the foundation to style to your own taste, simply move in and furnish how you like.

With a new home, there's no forward chain

We’re sure that in house search, you’ll have heard the horror stories about chains and the endless delays and complications that come with them. Well when buying new there is no forward chain, as you’re the first person to be stepping into your new home. All you’ll be waiting for is the build to finish.

Buying schemes

With a new build home, you’ll have access to an array of buying schemes such as the Government backed Help to Buy: Equity Loan initiative, Home Reach part buy – part rent and our Key Worker and Armed Forces initiatives, to help you on your way to homeownership. These schemes aren’t available on a second hand property, making it easier to buy new.

Exclusive to first time buyers, the Help to Buy: Equity Loan allows our customers to buy with just a 5% deposit. This means you could get onto the property ladder with just a £4,750 deposit.

At Gleeson, we build communities

Not only will you be benefitting from a new home, you’ll also benefit from the community our developments create. Between 2020 and 2021, 57% of our customers already lived within five miles of their chosen development, showing how we build local homes for local people. With Gleeson you can gain independence, and take that next step towards your future but still enjoy those home comforts that come with knowing your area and the community.

We also understand the importance of involving the community before and during the construction of your home, so that’s why we employ local labour and use local suppliers. Meaning when you buy with us, you’re also supporting your local community and are helping to create local jobs for local people.
