Savings and sustainability: celebrating New Homes Week

 As New Homes Week kicks off on Monday February 26th, Curo invites all prospective homebuyers to explore the many benefits of investing in a new build home.

Providing information, guidance, and inspiration, we will be focussing on increasing energy efficiency, peace of mind cover and value for money. Keep an eye on our social platforms, including Facebook, and Instagram, as we look closer at some of the schemes available, and some of our beautiful developments.

In a landscape marked by the cost of living, escalating energy bills, and wavering market confidence, Curo stands out as an opportunity. Contrary to common belief – now is a great time to consider purchasing a new home. With potential savings of up to £184 per month on energy bills*, minimal maintenance costs thanks to modern fixtures already in place, and a range of schemes and incentives to get you off the ground, your new home could be closer than you think.

A review of government data has found the average new build to be significantly more energy efficient than older properties, meaning that you’re not only saving money, but doing your bit for the environment too. The Home Builders Federation’s research found 85% of new build homes were rated with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) of B or above, while less than 5% of existing housing reached the same standard. This means new build homeowners are collectively reducing carbon emissions by 61% per year.

Amongst our exceptional developments are the acclaimed Mulberry Park in Combe Down, Keyford Meadows in Frome and Locking Parklands in Weston-super-Mare. From one bedroom to five, there are a diverse range of high-quality homes in some incredible locations – click here to look at what’s available. Each house has undergone multiple quality inspections, and once you move in, you’ll be given the contact of our Head of Customer Care, with a 10-year NHBC Warranty and 2-year Curo Warranty to boot.

We have a commitment to simplifying the homebuying process, and this includes several schemes. The Swift Move scheme, in collaboration with MOVE+, offers a hassle-free solution for those with a property to sell. Additionally, Smooth Move, executed in partnership with Property PX Group, provides a stress-free part-exchange option.

For first-time buyers or those seeking affordable homeownership, Curo's Shared Ownership programme offers a practical pathway. This innovative part-rent, part-buy initiative allows buyers to step onto the property ladder with a smaller deposit and mortgage, gradually increasing ownership through a process known as 'staircasing.'

We understand that buying a home and moving can be both exciting and stressful. Which is why we have an experienced and dedicated in-house sales team ensuring a straightforward and easy process. Post-purchase, we also have a customer care team to provide ongoing support.
