Why families prefer new-builds

Buying a new build property has never been a more popular first step for families – and there are a number of reasons why. ZPG Plc, the parent company of property portal, Zoopla, conducted a survey in 2018* that revealed the draw of new-builds for families.

The survey questioned those who were either looking to buy a property in the following year or had recently bought. Here are the top 11 reasons why a new-build property is the first choice for families responding to the survey:

  • Straightforward sales process
  • Easy maintenance home
  • Convenient location and good local amenities
  • Government-backed schemes like Help to Buy
  • Great incentives, eg. white goods, flooring, turfed gardens
  • Better energy-efficiency ratings and eco credentials
  • Low running costs
  • Easier mortgage application and acceptance
  • Simple to personalise and style before completion
  • Great lifestyle
  • New build homes are easier to sell

We regularly conduct our own post-completion surveys and always request feedback from purchasers who have made their move to the Park and we have to concur with the ZPG findings. Every new home ticks every one of these boxes and we’re delighted that our five-star Feefo reviews point to great customer service as being another primary factor when it comes to buying a new family home here.

Anything that makes life easier when it comes to buying a home is always welcome news for prospective purchasers. The Park’s Sales and Customer Care teams are dedicated to supporting our buyers from first visit to completion and beyond. From booking unaccompanied viewings and one-to-one meetings by appointment during the coronavirus restrictions to our outstanding after-care service, we’ve made the process seamless and stress-free.
