Leeds Property: Why that ‘expensive’ new home may pay dividends

Have your say

New homes can sometimes be thought of as ‘too expensive’ for buyers however in a recent survey conducted by YouGov some staggering figures were unveiled!

Over 15 per cent of people who bought a pre-owned home found a problem after moving in that they were previously unaware of, compromising their enjoyment and perhaps necessitating costly repair or maintenance bills.

Miller Homes sales director Steve McElroy said there were many advantages to buying new over old and a great deal of them centred on not having to worry about repairs just after moving in.

“Buying a new home can alleviate the worry of unwanted discoveries and give buyers many years of hassle free home ownership in terms of renovations and repairs,” said Steve.

He continued: “And, with the typical home improvement costing an amazing £13,000 it can also save homeowners considerable sums of money too.”

Miller Homes appreciates that buying a new home is not all attributed to cost though and aside from offering quality homes at competitive prices they also offer intangible benefits such as well located developments, customer care that is second to none and a range of ways to buy which could make all the difference to you.

“We take immense pride in ensuring our customer journeys are positive and our own independent survey found that over 97 per cent of our customers would recommend us to a friend,” said Steve.

He went on: “We want to exceed our buyer’s expectations and we do this by employing and training competent, knowledgeable staff, using quality products and suppliers and helping you to enjoy your house buying journey, the Miller way.”
