Buying a house for the first time is a dream shared by many families and with good reason. It is something that gives us a rewarding feeling and the opportunity to start over and decorate it to our liking. It is an opportunity to create the home we have always wanted.
If you are planning to buy a house for you and your family, then here are some advantages of buying a new house rather than an older property:
Why are new houses so attractive?
- New houses offer guarantees, so you avoid costly repairs and save money.
- Many new houses include cooking appliances such as stoves, a refrigerator, an oven and dishwasher.
- If the new house is still under construction, you have the opportunity to request accessories or attractive extras – according to your taste!
- You can choose the flooring, the colour of the carpeting, the paint for the walls, and the design of the bathroom.
- In the kitchen, you can also select the quality of the cabinets, the colour and the design of the walls.
New houses reflect modern times and advances in technology.
Most new houses include technological accessories and safety facilities. They have accessories that seek to save energy and are friendlier to the environment. They are more energy efficient than older properties – so you save even more money on energy bills.
For real estate experts, there is a golden rule that in many cases will determine a decision: location, location, location. New housing can be part of a modern urban complex with more amenities. That can give you added value for services, surveillance and security.
Alternatively, new houses can form part of a development in areas away from urban zones, offering greater peace and tranquillity. They are usually located in areas which offer all kinds of amenities such as swimming pools, sports centres, gyms, and gardens, among others; all added extras that can add extra value to a brand-new house.
One such development is Maydenhayes in Mornington, County Meath, a lovely coastal village located near the River Boyne. The village is only 5 kilometres away from Drogheda. Comprised of around 1,223 acres, Mornington has the River Boyne on its north side and the Irish Sea on its east side. It offers easy access to beaches and a whole host of local amenities.
The development offers a range of superbly designed A-rated family homes including energy efficient appliances such as heat pumps, etc. And it is within an easy commuting distance of Dublin.
New homes are more attractive and with characteristics adapted to the new times. Also, if at some point in the future you decide to move, for whatever reason, a newer home is always easier to sell than an older property, which will make your own process of moving quicker and less stressful.
