Summer is one of the most popular times for looking for a new home, but many who start their search feel daunted by the sheer choice of new homes on offer.
One leading house builder has put together some top tips so that you can house hunt with purpose and find a quality new home for you and your family.
“We really want people to understand the mechanics of house buying and think about the future, not just about the present,” advised Steve McElroy sales director Miller Homes Yorkshire. “Buying any home is both a financial and often emotional commitment and we really want homeowners to fall in love with every aspect of their new home.”
Miller Homes’ top tips are:
Have a budget in mind which will allow you to live in your home too. There’s no point having a dream home if you can’t enjoy it.
Know what you want from your house. Do you want a large open plan family space or a separate dining room? Would an extra bathroom make mornings easier?
How much space do you really need? Is your family liable to increase or decrease any time soon?
Do you have the facilities nearby to make life easier such as shopping and leisure, and schools if required?
Buying new also has its advantages in that:
New properties can alleviate costly repair and reduce energy bills due to more efficient appliances and the latest in build techniques and insulation products.
Financial assistance is often available helping everyone from first time buyers to those looking to downsize.
It’s a chance to be part of a whole new community.
Show homes provide inspiration for turning your brand new property into your personally designed home.
“Miller Homes is committed to helping buyers from all walks of life and we support this by offering purchase incentives and knowledgeable sales advisers at all our developments,” said Steve. “This ensures that our buyers find their perfect home which they can afford, enjoy and live in for many years to come.”
Miller Homes currently has twelve developments located across the region, most are open Thursday – Monday, 10.30am – 5.30pm. Further details such as housetypes, availability and prices for each development, can be found by visiting Miller Homes
