Why buy new?

Buying a new home offers many benefits against buying an existing property, from lower energy bills to exclusive homebuying schemes. Discover the benefits you can unlock when you choose to buy new.

Your home, your way. 

Moving into a brand-new home is an exciting milestone as you’ll be the first person to live there and put your very own stamp on the place! 

There's so many ways that you can personalise your new home from the moment we start to build it for you. You can choose from a beautiful range of kitchens* and optional extras, including bathrooms, appliances, carpets, flooring and tiling.

From interior design features to more practical options such as alarm systems, garden fencing and additional power supply points, there’s plenty to choose from, completely tailored to your needs.

Enjoy lower energy bills

New build homes are known to be far more energy efficient when compared to existing properties. All Gleeson homes are built using modern construction methods, with a new boiler or air source heat pump technology as standard, and modern insulation materials. All this combined ensures our homes are far more efficient than a second-hand home, meaning you will ultimately save money on your running costs.

According to latest figures published by the HBF (House Builders Federation) in the ‘Watt a Save' report, new build homes are found to be 66% more energy efficient than an existing property, saving homeowners up to £183 a month in energy bills. That's a saving of £2,195 a year!

Think about it, this saving could be the equivalent to you paying for your next summer holiday!

Peace of mind comes as standard

We’re committed to building quality, affordable homes and delivering an exceptional service from the moment you meet us. The NHBC carry out key stage inspections throughout the build process alongside our internal inspection processes, to ensure quality is exactly as it should be before key release.

Our commitment to quality and service doesn’t stop once we hand over your keys. You’ll receive a two-year Gleeson warranty, backed by the NHBC, plus a further eight years of insurance cover from the NHBC to give you absolute peace of mind and comfort right from the moment you move in.

In the unlikely event that something goes wrong, or you’re not completely satisfied, your warranty ensures you’re protected. Now, that’s something you wouldn’t get when buying a second-hand home!

A blank canvas ready for you to personalise

We often hear from customers how excited they are to get creative in personalising their new Gleeson home. This is one of the many benefits you’ll see when you choose a new home, the ability to really make it your own.

So, there’s no need to worry about renovating or taking on home improvement projects because everything is new, from the freshly painted walls, to the shiny new appliances. You can enjoy moving into a blank canvas, ready for you to stamp your own style on and create the space you've been dreaming of.

With a new home, there's no forward chain

We all know that purchasing a new home can be stressful, and more so when there are forward chains involved. This can often lead to delays and complications. So, when you decide to buy a new Gleeson home, you’ll be safe in the knowledge that there is no forward chain, it’s just you.

As soon as your new home is completed and ready to move into, we’ll get you moving as quickly as possible. To ensure things go as smoothly as possible, our Sales Executive will be there to help you every step of the way!

At Gleeson, we build thriving communities

Not only will you be benefitting from a new home, you’ll also benefit from becoming part of a new community. We create sustainable and thriving communities, offering contributions and investments to support local growth initiatives.

With a Gleeson home, you can gain independence, or take that next step towards your future goals, but still enjoy those home comforts that come with knowing your area and the community that surrounds you.

In addition, we 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.

“I’ve met some wonderful neighbours since moving in and this particular location is close to lots of woods and forest walks, which I have yet to explore. My stress levels are minimal and the air, ambience and vibe of this community are second to none, including the Sales and Build team working on the site!”
