What is the advantage of choosing a new build home over an older property?
There are many benefits to buying a new build home over an older property. One of the most important is that the home comes with a 10-year structural warranty that protects you against any major structural defects to your home. Another important thing to consider is that new builds are better insulated than older homes, which can result in significantly cheaper energy bills. Being the first to live in the property also means that you are less likely to have to spend time and money on redecorating and repairs. Buying a new build home also means that you won’t have a chain of buyers above you which can significantly reduce the stresses of buying a home.
At Graven Hill, you will also have the opportunity to choose your internal layouts and finishes, provided you reserve early enough in the build process. In addition, you could utilise our Part Exchange scheme, where your existing home will be used as part-payment for your Custom Build New Home, meaning you can move faster with a guaranteed buyer.
How can I schedule a viewing of a new build home in Graven Hill?
Whilst we may have some move-in ready properties available, most of the homes at Graven Hill are sold off-plan and may not be viewable due to the stage of construction. Our Sales team will be able to show you layouts, site plans and specifications as well as computer-generated images of any homes under construction. Depending on their location on site, they may also be able to show you the physical location of the plot. We would recommend booking a face-to-face appointment with the Sales team if you are interested in finding out more information about any of our houses for sale in Bicester.
