Reasons to choose Seddon Homes as a first time buyer

Posted on February 11th, 2019

The sheer amount of choice only makes the decision that much harder! However, here’s why we think that Seddon Homes is the ideal choice for a first time buyer.

A home of your own

If you’ve never owned a home before, you’ve most likely been renting or living with parents. While those options are okay for a while, what better way to celebrate your independence than to buy a brand new home? You can have it any which way you like and you don’t have anyone to answer to but yourself.

Seddon Homes give you plenty of design options to choose from when you buy off plan, and if you someday get bored of anything, then you can simply change it! No begging the landlord to switch out the floorboards, no asking your parents if you can paint your room… it’s up to you.


As well as Seddon Homes’ fantastic build quality, you also benefit from our 2-year warranty (from date of CML sign off). This gives you peace of mind that, if something were to unexpectedly go wrong in the next couple of years, you’re covered by us. Our homes are built for life.

You’ll save money

That’s right! New build homes are drastically more energy-efficient than their older counterparts, so when you buy a new Seddon home, you’ll save money in the long run. In some cases, new homes can be up to 60% more energy efficient. This means you’ll have money to spend on the things that really matter. You’ll also be reducing your carbon footprint, so it’s a win-win.

No need for maintenance

Brand new homes are pretty much ready to move into (when purchasing furnished), with no repainting, redecorating, or replacing needed. This, combined with Seddon Homes’ 2-year warranty, means that your new home will need minimal maintenance when compared to an older home. So relax, kick back, and enjoy the life of home ownership!

Modern design

Although we realise the charm in an older property, they just aren’t made with modern living needs in mind. People nowadays want more open-plan, light and spacious areas, whereas older homes tend to be the exact opposite. This made sense back in the day because people wanted smaller rooms that could stay warm in the cold. However, with the invention of central heating and better insulation, we don’t really need to build small.

With a new, modern home, you reap the benefits of living spaces that have functional and aesthetically pleasing designs. Even better, your new home will have features and appliances that didn’t even exist in the past, such as integrated kitchen appliances, en-suites and more. Seddon architects have many years’ experience in designing the perfect home, and our choice of designs is sure to appeal to every taste and budget.

Help to buy schemes

For the first time buyer, Seddon Homes have a number of schemes to make the home-buying process easier than ever. One of the most popular and useful ones that we have available is the government-backed Help to Buy. With this, you could afford the new Seddon home of your choice with as low as a 5% deposit. Plus, when you save over £1,600 into your Help to Buy ISA, you could receive a grant of up to £3,000 towards the cost of your new home as part of your ISA bonus.

You will receive expert advice from our financial advisors, and given support towards reaching your savings goals. We also reserve your chosen home during this time so that you don’t miss out!

This revolves around the conveyancing process, which is where all of the legalities in home buying are dealt with. When you choose to use Select Solicitor, we provide you with a Seddon-approved solicitor, which makes the conveyancing process run smoother and more efficiently.
