Benefits Of Buying A New Build With Fernham Homes

At Fernham Homes we acknowledge that buying a house is one of the biggest decisions and financial commitments you might ever make, so choosing the right one for you can seem like a daunting task.

We understand that finding a new home can take time. With so many factors to think about when buying a home; decisions about price, location, and size often take priority. This is why we choose to build exceptional homes in premium locations, making the decision as easy as possible. From your first visit to moving into your new Fernham home, we’re with you every step of the way.

We spoke to Laura Upton who recently moved into our Rosewood Place development, she said: “Choosing to buy a Fernham Home was an easy decision for me. I’d been looking for a property for approximately 18 months, and when I viewed the show home I knew it ticked all the boxes.”

Rosewood Place, is a collection of three, four and five-bedroom houses. With 75% of homes sold, the final release of six houses is now available to reserve. These homes are situated on the south side of the development, boasting views across the ecological habitat and children’s play area. You could move into your new home as early as January 2023, with prices starting at £545,000.

Rosewood Place is ideally located to enjoy the rural side of Kent, yet still being well positioned for access into London from either Tunbridge Wells or Paddock Wood stations, Rosewood Place is a great choice. Families of all sizes will benefit from the variety of schools in the local area, including a range of grammar schools. The benefits of buying new

For Fernham Homes, the customer journey is an important process and we want to make buying a new home as smooth as possible. Talking about her experience, Laura said: “One of the things that attracted me to Fernham Homes was the presentation of the development. As soon as I entered the sales office, the sales consultant was welcoming and provided me with a wealth of information about the homes in the local area.

Energy saving

With the cost of living still on the rise now might be the perfect time to consider buying a new build home, as buying now could save you money in the long run.

According to recent findings by the Home Builders Federation, ‘on average, buyers of new homes save over £2,000 on household bills per property each year, equivalent to £173 a month.’

The findings from data analysed from over 1.6 million properties in the UK suggest that buying new can have long-term benefits when it comes to saving money on your energy bills. From A rated appliances to better insulation, moving into a new build could be more beneficial as 84% of new-builds fall within the highest band of efficiency, highlighting the environmental and financial benefits of buying new.

All of our homes benefit from an EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) rating of ‘B’, making your home a greener option for the environment. To support this, many mortgage lenders now offer specific ‘greener’ mortgage products for those purchasing a home with an EPC rating of ‘B’ or above.

High-standard specification

All Fernham homes come with high-standard specifications and Rosewood Place is no exception. From the contemporary brushed chrome door handles to the skirting boards, every aspect of the design has been considered to be pleasing to the eye and practical.

The A-rated appliances, wall-mounted radiators, fibre optic internet connection, USB charger points and secure front doors, give you peace of mind when it comes to the performance and security of your new home.

It’s the high specification and ability to customise certain aspects of the home that Laura found she liked about Fernham Homes. She said: “The specification of these homes is well thought out with contemporary, fully integrated A-rated appliances. This meant that from the moment I moved in, everything was ready to go. I didn’t need to worry about the additional costs or the time associated with sourcing new appliances.”

Ready when you are

Another benefit of buying a new-build home at Rosewood Place is that our homes are presented in a ‘ready to move into’ condition, including fully integrated appliances and flooring included throughout.

Buying new means you don’t need to worry about any messy renovation work that you might experience with an older property, as all the hard work has been done.

You can have creative input in your home, from the kitchen units and worktops colour choices to bathroom tiles, and flooring options, all of which are included in the price of your home. This allows you to make it your own and ready to put your stamp on when you move in.

Having the home ready to move into meant that Laura could decorate straight away, she said: “One of the reasons I was drawn to a new build property, was because it gave me the opportunity to make the space my own. I have a keen interest in interior design and the blank canvas allowed me to decorate and dress the home to my taste.

“I was so excited that I’ve secured such a fantastic home, that I really wanted to do it justice with the interior design and I completed the makeover within four weeks of moving in.”

We’re proud to have been awarded the Gold Award for customer satisfaction in 2022 by In-House Research, for the third consecutive year.

Fernham Homes resident, Laura, said: “Throughout the home-buying journey, I was kept informed every step of the way by the sales team. What really set Fernham Homes apart for me, was the fantastic level of customer service I received from start to finish.”
