What to Look For When Purchasing A New Build Home

10 April 2023

When moving into any house, whether it be new or old, it’s important to make sure that everything is in order for when you move in – and beyond. One of the main reasons why buyers today prefer new build homes is that it’s a clean slate when you move in. You’re the first people to live in it, meaning you have a blank canvas to truly make your house a home.

However, it’s easy to become distracted by the customisation options available when purchasing a new build. As a result, it’s important that you don’t get so lost that you forget the fundamental areas that need to be considered. Here are some of the things you should look out for before purchasing a new build home – and how Fletcher Homes can provide you with the perfect home to fit your requirements.

Home purchase schemes

Alongside the Government’s previous Help to Buy scheme, there are plenty of housing developers that offer additional incentives to support you in getting the home you want. Most developments have a varied range of housing types, designed to suit all budgets. At Fletcher Homes, it’s no different. We offer a variety of offers to help buyers realise the potential of purchasing their dream new build home and help relieve some of the stress associated with buying a property. Take a look at our current offers or get in touch with our team to discuss your current situation and see how we can help you.


Moving into your new home is one thing, but being prepared for whatever comes afterwards is another issue. This is why housing developers provide a warranty to cover any issues that may occur within your property after you’ve moved in. It’s important to us that you’re completely satisfied with your new home which is why all Fletcher Homes come with an NHBC warranty, which lasts for 10 years. Our after-care service starts from the moment you complete the sale and we dedicate time to ensure your home is in perfect condition before you move in. Once we’ve handed you the keys, we’ll keep in touch with you for the first 12 months to ensure you’re still happy and check if there is anything we can do in the event you need us.


You need to have full confidence in your house builder before you make a big investment. Everything, down to the last-minute details, have to be perfect for when you move in. As a housing developer that has been building homes for over 80 years, we’re confident in saying that we are one of the best developers within Shropshire. We’re known for our high quality, well designed and constructed homes, which has provided us with a fantastic reputation with our customer base. So much so, that many customers return to us when they’re ready to move onto a new home.


Now more than ever, there is a big responsibility placed on all of us to be more thoughtful in how environmentally conscious we are. Housebuilding is no different as there must be more sustainable sources of energy to combat climate change. For us, sustainable living is at the forefront of our design process. All our developments are built in locations that boast beautiful, natural spaces for buyers to enjoy, in addition to being within locations that have excellent public transport links to support low emissions travel. At Fletcher Homes, we’re always identifying new ways to build our homes to be that little bit greener.
