7 reasons why you should buy a new home in 2020


There are so many reasons why you should buy a new home for your next move. At Chipping Homes, we’ve put together our top 7 reasons why we think a new home is the perfect match for you and yours.


1. Choose your dream new home

Buying a new home could be the perfect answer to your next move.

New build developments often offer a range of building styles and house designs for you to choose from, allowing you to cherry pick your dream home, based on your requirements and budget.

Many are also available to purchase off plan, meaning you can reserve before they are built.

Ensure you research the local area, you know what they say… Location, Location, Location!

With technology and transport links developing rapidly, don’t discount a rural spot that can provide the all-important work/life balance.


At Fellside we have six styles of home to choose from, meaning buying here can make those house dreams a reality!

The Charlbury – 3 Bedroom Detached home

The Spelsbury – 3 Bedroom Detached Home

The Kingham – 4 Bedroom Detached Home

The Finstock – 4 Bedroom Detached Home

The Stonesfield – 5 Bedroom Detached Home

The Whichford – 5 Bedroom Detached Home


Some of the benefits of our homes are:

  • 10-year Premier Guarantee New Home Warranty
  • UPVC double glazed windows and French doors
  • Natural stone, slate, tiling, render and brick external walls (see plot specific information); external elevations vary in their materials depending on the plot
  • Eco Air Source Heat Pump heating system with thermostatically controlled radiators
  • Garage and driveway on all homes for sale on open market
  • Some homes provide car charging ports
  • Cavity wall insulation and loft insulation
  • Energy efficient ceiling light fittings
  • Downlighters fitted to kitchens, bathrooms and en-suites





2. No chains

When buying a new home you are buying directly from the builder and not reliant on a chain.

Meaning you can buy stress-free knowing there is no upward chain!

Chains can be one of the most stressful elements of home buying, so buying new can be a far less painful way of moving.


3. Peace of mind

When you buy a new home you can have peace of mind knowing that your safety is paramount, as new homes come complete with top safety and security features, such as window and door locks and smoke detectors.

New homes also come with a fantastic guarantee as standard. At Fellside, we provide a 10-year Premier Guarantee New Home Warranty for all of our homes.


4. New homes are designed with modern living in mind

New homes are built with modern living in mind, making them seamlessly blend into your daily lives with comfort and ease, through open plan living space and kitchens, plenty of bathrooms and many fabulous plug-in points.

Open plan living is of course great for WiFi which works best without walls.

At Fellside we have partnered with not-for-profit organisation, B4RN (Broadband for Rural North Ltd), to provide future-proofed superfast internet access for our residents. Unlike BT’s copper wires, B4RN is entirely fibre optic and brings a whole host of benefits, which are reviewed in an earlier blog

Not only does B4RN’s fibre optic ensure rural-located new homes are just as well equipped with technology as major cities, but as a charity, all its profits go straight back into the local community.

5. New homes have cheaper running costs

The comprehensive building process of new homes guarantees a smaller amount of maintenance, making them highly reliable.

And, with better insulation, highly efficient appliances and the most up-to-date specifications, new builds can help you save on your energy bills, allowing you to spend money on what you really want!

New homes are also the greener choice, being more environmentally friendly than older homes.

Here at Fellside all our homes also come with air source heat pumps in place of gas. We teamed up with NIBE to provide a heating system that stood up to modern-day family demands.

The system is eco-friendly, high efficiency and user-friendly, providing homes with optimal thermal performance.

Our article on the sustainable heat pumps in our homes at Fellside explains more.

Just another way we bring outstanding home design to the picturesque village of Chipping, helping you save the environment and money.



6. Make your own mark with a new home

When it comes to decorating and adding beautiful furniture, the world is your oyster with a new home.

You get to move into a stunning new home that has never been touched before.

New homes are the perfect blank canvas to let your creative juices run free, whilst also including hi-spec fixtures and fittings for your comfort and ease!

Here at Fellside, you will find sleek designs which are perfect for adding your own mark and with our fantastic upgrades scheme, you can make your home just the way you want it!


7. Helpful incentives

Help to Buy equity loan is a government scheme available on new homes.

This fantastic scheme helps existing and first-time buyers purchase their dream home with as little as a 5% deposit required!
