Why Buy New? - PORT Homes

Move Forward

Whether you are a first-time buyer, need more space, downsizing or making an investment, there’s a whole host of reasons to buy a new build home from Port Homes. From buying a brand-new energy efficient property that’s never been lived in and that doesn’t require any DIY to the wide range of schemes that are available to help you buy, we believe a new home is the right decision for you.

Lower Maintenance

There’s no need to spend your weekends sanding down skirting or re-tiling your bathroom to bring your home up to scratch. With a new build home, you get all the latest in kitchen and bathroom design along with our outstanding specification. In fact, at some of our developments you will get the chance to have your say by choosing the design of your kitchen and bathroom.

Blank Canvas

The customisation you can have on your home during the build stage means its perfectly suited to you so the second you get the keys to your new build home, you can put your feet up and relax.

Schemes to help you move

If you are ready to move but need some help along the way, we offer schemes to help you get moving with us. Whether you’re a first time buyer and want to take advantage of our Deposit Assist or Own New schemes, or you already own a home and want to use our Smooth Move scheme, we have got you covered.

You can find out more about the schemes we offer on our Helping You Move page.

If you want to talk to a sales advisor on your chosen development they will be able to offer further help.

10 year warranty and insurance

With all of our homes, you will receive a two year builder warranty, plus a further eight years warranty from ICW. Throughout the build of your home, as well as our own protocols & local builder surveyor check-ups, ICW carry out inspections to ensure that the quality of your home is top notch. Now that’s something you don’t get with a second-hand home!

No forward chain

Buying a new build can help take the stress of getting stuck in a lengthy chain, as the home you are moving into will have never been occupied.

An opportunity to invest

Investing in a new build home comes with plenty of benefits. You will be buying a home that tenants can move straight into, in sought after locations that are attractive to buyers and renters alike. Our high quality homes also come with the reassurance of a 10 year warranty, along with regular rental income in the short term you will also be able to enjoy the long term capital growth as house prices rise.
