Why buy new?

With rising costs everywhere you turn, buying a new home is undoubtably a sensible choice and alternative to buying an older property.

There’s nothing ordinary about a new Gleeson home. 

Moving into a brand new home is a very special experience as you’ll be the first person to move into a house that you can make into your home.

There's so many ways that you can personalise your new home from the moment we start to build it for you. You can choose from a beautiful range of kitchens* and optional upgrades, including bathrooms, appliances, carpets, flooring and tiling. Your home, your way.

From interior design features to more practical options such as alarm systems, garden fencing and additional power points, there’s plenty to choose from.

Light bulb moment

New build homes are known to be far more energy efficient than their older counterparts. A brand new Gleeson home is built using modern construction methods, with a new boiler, and modern insulation materials meaning you will ultimately spend less in a new home.

According to a 2023 report published by the HBF (House Builders Federation), titled ‘Watt a Save ’ buyers of new build properties will save on average £2,510.73 a year in energy bills, compared to buyers of older properties.  What’s not to like!

This creates a better structure for keeping heat in, ensuring you’re cosy and warm when it’s cold outside and at the same time helping to keep your energy bills low which is important to us all!

Peace of mind comes as standard

We’re committed to building quality, affordable homes and delivering a service to you from the moment you meet us. The NHBC carry out key stage inspections throughout the build process alongside our internal inspection processes, to ensure build quality throughout. Our commitment to quality doesn’t stop once we hand over your keys.

After key release we commit to a two year Gleeson warranty, backed by the NHBC's resolution service, and a further eight years of insurance cover from NHBC to give you absolute trust, peace of mind and comfort in your new home.

Your new home is a blank canvas ready for you to add your personal touches

A new home is a blank canvas. There is no need to worry about stripping wallpaper, sanding down skirting boards or ripping up a flowery carpet when you buy a Gleeson home. Step inside a newly plastered and painted home which gives you the foundation to style to your own taste, simply move in and furnish how you like.

webuild happiness

With a new home, there's no forward chain

We’re sure that in house search, you’ll have heard the horror stories about chains and the endless delays and complications that come with them. Well when buying new there is no forward chain, as you’re the first person to be stepping into your new home. All you’ll be waiting for is the build to finish.

A helping hand

When buying a home with Gleeson, there are lots of helpful schemes to make homeownership even easier.

Many of our customers are first-time buyers, so we’ve created Gleeson’s own first-time buyer assist scheme, find out more about it here.

You could make use of the Home Reach part buy – part rent scheme* where you can buy a share of your chosen new home and just pay a monthly rent on the part you don’t own.

There's also First Homes, a new government scheme which allows first-time buyers to buy selected new homes at a discount of at least 30% of the market value*.

And let’s not forget to mention our partnership with Armed Forces Direct if you are in the military where you can still benefit from the government’s Help to Buy scheme. For more information, click here.

webuild communities

Friends sat on a settee together

At Gleeson, we build communities

Not only will you be benefitting from a new home, you’ll also benefit from becoming part of a new community.

Between 2020 and 2021, nearly 60% of our customers already lived within five miles of their chosen development, meaning we’re building homes for local people.

And, with Gleeson you can gain independence, and take that next step towards your future but still enjoy those home comforts that come with knowing your area and the community.

In addition, we understand the importance of involving the community before and during the construction of your home, so that’s why we employ local labour and use local suppliers. Meaning when you buy with us, you’re also supporting your local community and are helping to create local jobs for local people.
