Screen Shot 2016-05-19 at 11.49.11NORTH EAST house hunters can say goodbye to spending time making continual home improvements and take back weekends with a new build home.

Miller Homes is supporting the HBF’s (Home Builders Federation) New Homes Week, which is running from 16 to 22 May 2016, promoting the benefits of owning a new build home and the low maintenance that comes with this.

The leading housebuilder has a variety of high quality, low maintenance new build homes available in a number of developments across the region, catering to a range of buyers including those looking to take their first steps onto the property ladder, growing families and those keen to downsize.

Available at Park View in Gateshead, buyers could start reclaiming weekends sooner than they thought with the four-bedroom Greenwich. This contemporary home comes complete with feature twin French doors to the lounge, leading to an outdoor decked patio area with fantastic views, an en-suite to the master bedroom and a handy single garage and car port, offering luxury living in a desirable location, with prices starting from £294,950*.

At Heritage Green in Backworth, buyers can make frequent home improvements a thing of the past by snapping up The Crompton. This popular four-bedroom detached family home offers a feature bay window in the spacious lounge, a family breakfast area in the kitchen, two en-suite bathrooms, a family bathroom and a single garage, and is priced from £289,950*.

Those looking for a low maintenance new build home in Houghton-le-Spring should look no further than Scholars Gate. The four-bedroom detached Ryton is a new housetype to the region and includes a feature bay window in the spacious lounge area, a family breakfast area in the kitchen, an en-suite to the master bedroom, a Jack and Jill en-suite and a single garage, with prices starting from £279,950*.

Homeowners can also benefit from the peace of mind which comes with owning a Miller Home thanks to a two year customer care service as well as a 10 year industry guarantee offered by The National House Building Council.

Andrew Somerville, regional sales manager at Miller Homes North East, said: “With the next Bank Holiday Weekend approaching, for some of those living in an older property this may mean spending yet another weekend making home improvements. With the warmer weather upon us and the summer months just around the corner, we would all prefer to enjoy spending our spare time outdoors.

“One of the many benefits of owning a new build home, which the HBF is highlighting during New Homes Week, is the low maintenance factor, allowing homeowners to escape a cycle of continuous DIY jobs. Our variety of housetypes available across the region offer homeowners just that, allowing weekends to be reclaimed.”

Buyers in need of a helping hand to make their dream of owning a new home a reality can take advantage of a range of schemes offered by Miller Homes. For first time buyers there’s the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme, and for those who have an existing property to sell, Home Exchange is available.

Help to Buy offers assistance for buyers who only have a deposit of 5% through the provision of a 20% equity loan from the Government for those who meet the qualifying criteria, meaning buyers could only need to secure up to a 75% mortgage from a provider.

For existing home owners, Home Exchange from Miller Homes allows people to swap their current home for one of the leading housebuilder’s selected plots, regardless of whether they are looking to upsize, downsize or swap like-for-like.

The scheme offers a cash buyer for the property and also eliminates advertising costs and estate agent’s fees. Once Miller Homes confirms that a property qualifies for Home Exchange, an offer could be made within seven days and once a price has been agreed and a new Miller home to move into has been chosen, the transaction can progress quickly. Miller Homes’ Home Exchange scheme also allows buyers to continue living in their current property until their new home is ready for them to move into.

Help to Buy loans are provided by the Government’s Homes & Community Agency (HCA) and are secured over your new home. YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON A MORTGAGE OR ANY OTHER DEBT SECURED ON IT.
