Can a different type of house structure really make a difference to my energy bills?
Yes! The climate in Sweden is even more severe than ours, so these houses are built to handle everything nature can throw at them. The Swedish government and customers have demanded a much higher standard of energy efficiency from their houses for many years – with Trivselhus by Esh homes giving you a rating of ‘A’ compared to the more usual ‘E’. It is all in the ‘climate shield’ construction. This means that even without the added energy savings from the solar energy and heat recycling technology this type of house will cost far less to heat, because so little of it is lost to the outside.
I really want to buy a new house, but I’m stuck in a chain. Is there any way around this?
New build properties offer a fantastic solution to your problem. Homebuilders are able to offer part-exchange options to buyers looking to move quickly and free themselves from a property chain. Our part-exchange scheme is structured so that we can buy any existing property. We effectively become a cash buyer at a fair market price with no estate agents fees to pay. It’s a straightforward solution to moving forward with your home purchase, and one that cuts through the property chain simply and quickly.
I’ve been looking at some of the second-hand properties for around the same price in the area – why buy new instead?
With a modern new build home, move-in costs are kept to a minimum. There’s no major outlay for structural repairs and the house is a blank canvas on which to make it your own. Buyers are also able to choose many of the major features in the home, such as the kitchen or bathroom, in order to personalise design and practical elements during the construction phase. All Trivselhus by Esh homes are also covered by the Checkmate 10 year warranty. So any major problems will be rectified with no cost to the owner. Budgets are always stretched when buying a property, but with a new build you know repair and maintenance costs will be kept to a minimum for many years to come. You are purchasing the most up to date technology and housing design, with modern insulation and any problems resulting from wear and tear will be minimal. New build properties really do offer hassle-free moving.
Is now a good time to buy, I’ve heard that I should wait before buying?
A good deal of uncertainty surrounds the housing market, especially since the start of the economic downturn in 2008. There has been a definite upward trend in our sales since 2012, with another very strong start to this year. With all of the support available to new build home buyers, it seems many people have become tired of waiting for the ‘right time’ and instead are seizing the opportunity to buy their dream home at a good price when it fits with their life.
