Homebuyers could save thousands every year by choosing new.

Figures released by the HBF (Home Builders Federation) show that buyers could now save up to £3100 annually on their energy bills by choosing a newbuild home - compared to £2600 last year.

The announcement has been made ahead of New Homes Week (27th Feb – 3rd March), an event created to celebrate the benefits of buying new.


Among the positives is the cost saving of not having to renovate or restore an older home to meet the standards of modern living, according to Bloor Homes – an amount that the HBF says could cost up to £70,000.


Mark Powell, Group Sales and Marketing Director for Bloor Homes, said: “New Homes Week is the ideal time for us to talk about the many benefits of buying new. Not only do purchasers save thousands on energy bills, new homes can also often be bought using schemes such as Assisted Move, which just aren’t available on older properties.


“Not only that, but new homes such as the ones we build here at Bloor, tend to be more energy-efficient than older properties, so it’s an investment which will pay dividends in the coming years too. In fact, figures released recently by the HBF (Home Builders Federation) show that buyers who choose a new build house could save up to £2600 a year on average energy costs.


“Add to that the money and stress-saving implications of moving into a new home with a ten-year warranty and no renovation work needed, and it’s no wonder that so many people are choosing new.”
