Five star homebuilder David Wilson Homes is inviting Berkshire house hunters to down tools for a DIY amnesty during New Homes Week (May 14th to 20th) and consider the advantages of a new home.
75% of residents living in Berkshire admit they would spend up to £5,000 on DIY, a survey conducted by the local developer has revealed.
David Wilson Homes, which is building new homes at a range of developments across the county, suggests people should take a look at its selection of properties to see a home that’s ready to move into with no additional work necessary.
Newly released research from the Home Builders Federation (HBF) has revealed that homebuyers who choose to upgrade an older property to the same standard as a new home could end up spending more than £45K on modernising, and there are other benefits to buying new besides costs.
DIY home improvements often don’t go to plan, resulting in further work, additional expense and in extreme cases; it can lead to personal injuries.
When purchasing a home on the second hand market, there may be a number of upgrades still needed at the property, but with David Wilson Homes each house is all set for the perfect living space.
Rob Allen, Sales Director for David Wilson Homes Southern, said: “There are a number of benefits to buying a new home that we would like homebuyers to consider.
“From the results of our survey, we learned Berkshire residents were willing to spend a large amount of money on DIY improvements, but with one of our new-build properties, everything is already prepared for the homebuyer.
“Buying a brand new home means you can move in straight away without any DIY needing to be done and you’re guaranteed a quality home which is energy efficient and has lower maintenance costs.
“We offer a range of low deposit schemes, discounts and a Part Exchange service which very often help people move house or get on the property ladder where otherwise they might not have been able to.”
Rather than facing potential DIY disasters, homeowners and first-time buyers alike are encouraged to visit any of David Wilson Homes’ developments during New Homes Week to discover a new DIY-free home.
David Wilson Homes Southern currently has homes available at the following developments in the area: Croft Gardens in Reading, Montague Park in Wokingham, Newbury Racecourse and The Chase at Newbury Racecourse in Newbury.
