3 reasons why you should build a new home

Whether you choose to demolish an existing property to build a new home or you have selected the perfect lot for your dream property, there is nothing like the feeling of owning a brand new home.

If you are weighing up the benefits of building a new home or buying an existing property, read on for three reasons why newer is often better. 

Your home, your way

It almost goes without saying that the biggest advantage of building a new home is that you can select a pre-designed home that perfectly suits your family and have input on all the final touches so that it works for your needs.

As you work closely with your builder through every stage of the process, you will be able to select the features and finishes that best suit your family.

A modern, efficient design

Newer homes tend to be easier to maintain than older, established properties - and you may also benefit from lower energy bills when you opt for a new design.

Energy efficient features - such as insulation and double glazed windows - can be incorporated into your property right from the outset, and could help you make considerable reductions to your utility bills over time.

Low maintenance living

When you move into a property, the last thing you want to do is spend your weekends budgeting for repairs or embarking on DIY projects - you want to enjoy living in your new space!

New homes require considerably less maintenance than older properties and when you build with apg you'll benefit from our comprehensive maintenance inspection and services. This means that within six months of moving in we will make sure your home is inspected for any maintenance issues related to the construction process and that any issues are immediately taken care of.
