5 reasons to buy new when you next move home

Posted 27 November 2015

Buying a home with period features is all well and good, but there are a number of reasons why homeowners should consider taking advantage of the very best that modern architectural design has to offer.

Here are just 5 reasons to keep it 21st century when you next decide it’s time to move.


Energy Efficiency

New and evolving technologies are enabling homes to become increasingly energy efficient. Solar photovoltaics, mechanical ventilation and heat recovery systems, and triple glazing are just some of the features that are now available as standard on our own modern homes.

Sustainably sourced timber-framed houses such as our own Trivselhus by Esh homes are made using a fabric first approach. This precise and efficient method of building delivers greater insulation and thermal integrity. Windows and doors are integrated into the build under factory conditions, alongside mineral wool insulation and heat recovery systems, resulting in a more energy efficient build. It is for this reason that our homes are both kinder to the environment and lighter on the pocket in terms of running costs.


Builder’s Guarantee

Moving house is one of life’s most stressful activities, and although home surveys can detect the majority of potential problems and pitfalls, they can’t guarantee that something unexpected won’t go wrong shortly after you move in. It is not uncommon for old homes to need various structural touch ups or maintenance procedures carried out from time to time.

Buy a new house, however, and you can benefit from the luxury of a 10-year builder’s guarantee for added peace of mind. A new home is also very low maintenance and will virtually eliminate all of the little annoyances that can go wrong in older homes, saving you time and money in the long run.


Bespoke Interior Design and Layout

The great thing about a new home, is that you can put your stamp on it before you’ve even moved in. In many cases, interior décor can be tailored to suit your specific tastes, eliminating the dreaded job of redecorating as soon as you move in.

This goes for the layout of the property, too. Agree terms on a new home before or during the build and it is possible to request that living space and layout is adapted to fit the needs of your family.


Advanced Technology

New homes are carefully designed to seamlessly integrate appliances in order for them to complement and enhance the aesthetic and layout of a home rather than dictate where everything has to go.

Needless to say, the appliances in a Trivselhus by Esh home also meet ‘A’ energy ratings – from the latest Smeg oven and induction hob to a cutting edge electric hot water system. Features such as the mechanical ventilation and air source heat pump are also built into the home’s design, working in the background to achieve a more comfortable, cost-effective home environment with minimal fuss.


That New Home Feel

There’s no better feeling than moving into a brand new home – one that has no secrets or pre-existing problems. Your home is probably the most expensive thing you’ll ever buy, so having confidence in its ability to function with smooth efficiency long into the future is a valuable commodity.
