Bedfordshire homebuyers looking to purchase a new property should consider buying off plan, as leading developer David Wilson Homes has revealed the benefits of using this method for a range of buyers.
This means purchasing a property before it’s reached building completion, sometimes before construction has even started.
With many benefits including getting the pick of the plots by reserving early and the ability to personalise the property down to the finishing touches, buyers are more in control of their home.
Whether house hunters are purchasing their first home or are simply looking to upsize, the developer’s guide reveals how an off plan property can suit whatever vision buyers have for their dream home.
Jason Hearn, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes South Midlands, said: “Those looking for a new property can be dissuaded by the thought of buying off plan, but there are plenty of advantages that house hunters may not be aware of.
“We hope this guide helps buyers understand that purchasing off plan can help a variety of buyers and can suit everyone’s needs and more.”
For the first time buyer
Purchasing your first home and making that first move onto the property ladder is an exciting time which can be made less of a hassle with an off plan home.
When purchasing off plan it may be a long period to wait before you can actually move into your property, but having more time can actually benefit those buying their first home.
Whilst your dream home is being built, there is the comfort of knowing you have extra time to save before you move in, for extras such as furniture and moving fees, making the period your property is being built worth the wait and providing a better investment for you.
For the working professional
Fitting in your work life with purchasing and decorating your new home can become hectic, but an off plan property can save you from the hassle of juggling both.
With a David Wilson off plan home, house hunters are offered the option of a range of upgrades and enhancements during the building process.
David Wilson Homes’ properties are the perfect blank canvas to start with and the homebuilder’s Expressions range is ideal to personalise the property and make it theirs from the very beginning, so no time is wasted.
You can choose from a wide range of fixtures and can customise parts of their homes such as their kitchen and flooring, therefore saving you time by not having to arrange or install your home’s features.
This means you can design your new home to your own exact tastes, without the process taking up any of your own time on evenings and weekends.
For the second stepper
Off plan homes can be beneficial for those with families looking to upsize, as whilst you may have to extend your budget for a bigger home, there can be some financial benefits.
With an off plan purchase, buyers secure the price of their new home before the property is built which means the price of the house may go up over time.
This is perfect for those looking to upsize as whilst you extend your budget for a bigger home, you can also see a return from your investment.
There are also other financial offers available with David Wilson Homes, such as being able to save on your Stamp Duty, making off plan a perfect option for second-steppers.
For the downsizer
For homeowners who are looking for a smaller property, downsizing with an off plan is a great option as you can get a pick of the plots.
When downsizing the process of moving again can be overwhelming, especially if you want an area that has everything to offer, but an off plan home can help with buyer’s worries and give them plenty of options.
Purchasers of an off plan home can be amongst the first to pick which plot they reserve rather than having to battle other buyers when the building work is finished.
This means you can consider whereabouts on the development is the prime location for you. Whether it is nearer to the facilities some sites may offer or has surroundings that you are happier with, the choice is yours.
Jason continued: “Purchasing off plan is something buyers should consider if they want to make the most out of their dream property, and David Wilson Homes is here to help through every part of the journey.”
David Wilson Homes are currently building in the area at the following developments: Kingsley Manor in Langford, Lidlington Court in Lidlington, Marston Fields in Marston Moretaine and Great Denham Park in Great Denham.
