Why buy a new home? And why buy it now?

There are lots of other reasons to buy new, and especially to buy new from Millgate.

Millgate has been open for business during lockdown, and we have adopted new technology to help our customers along. Virtual viewings and consultations have proved popular, and we’re working closely with mortgage lenders and conveyancers to make it all happen.

So, why is it a good idea to buy a new home, and why buy now? There are a lot of good reasons to buy new and especially to buy new from Millgate.

Here are just a few of them:

A good time to buy

Interest rates are still low (some deals are offering 0.5%) and on top of this, there are some special Millgate incentives to help you. Our sales advisors can tell you more.

A blank canvas

In a new home, you can begin from zero to make it your own. No need to get rid of someone else’s colour schemes or bungled ‘improvements’. With everything box-fresh, from flooring to kitchen appliances, there won’t be expensive renovations to worry about.

Lower bills

Modern homes have much higher standards of energy efficiency and insulation than period properties. You’ll not only feel more comfortable but, according to the National Housebuilders Federation, you could save more than £600 a year on utilities, when compared to an older property of similar size.

Less stress

There’s no upward chain with a new home, so you can move in as soon as it’s ready. And if you’re having problems with a chain as you try to sell your old home, Millgate’s Chain Break scheme could be very helpful.

Peace of mind guaranteed

All Millgate homes are built to the latest industry standards and have a 10-year National House Building Council warranty. Most older properties do not have this protection; it’s very much a case of ‘buyer beware’.

Designed for modern living

Our homes are carefully designed to respond to the way people live today, often with open plan kitchen/dining/living areas. Direct garden access, ample space and light, high specification kitchens, fitted bathrooms and en suites are all features that we know buyers want, and this is what we provide. Our developments are carefully landscaped, with open space, good street lighting, parking and greenery. They’re places you’ll feel safe and happy coming home to.

Gold standard customer service

We recently won a Gold Award for customer satisfaction from the independent market researchers In-house Research. These awards are based on thousands of telephone interviews with customers, and so genuinely reflect what they think about us. Naturally, we are very proud to have this accolade. We’ll work hard to guide you through every step of the purchase process, and with schemes such as Assisted Move, Chain Break and Part Exchange, we can smooth out any bumps along the journey towards your beautiful new Millgate home.
