Higher quality materials and specifications

When it comes to purchasing a new build property, the quality of construction should be a top requirement on your list. New build homes will typically enjoy a far superior quality of construction compared to an older property. Here are a few reasons why:

> Use of High-quality Materials

New build properties are constructed using modern and highly functioning materials that are built to last. Builders on the Costa Del Sol are using and have access to some of the latest building technologies and materials ensuring that your new home is built to withstand the test of time, requiring less maintenance and providing you with comfortable living conditions. 

> Better Building Standards and Regulations

The building regulations surrounding new construction in Spain are far more stringent than those for older properties. This means that you can rest assured that your home has been built to the highest standards of safety and efficiency.

> Reduced Risk of Major Repairs or Renovations

With a new build property, you’re less likely to face any significant renovations or repairs in the near future. This is because the property has been built with the latest techniques and materials, ensuring that everything is in tip-top condition for years to come.

Customisation And Personalisation Options

Perhaps one of the most exciting elements to purchasing a new build property is the ability to freely customise its materials, equipment, finishes and in some cases layout, here’s how:

> Personalise Your Home

New homes that are under construction typically come with a comprehensive personalisation brochure which allows you to customise the property to your taste and requirements. We will work with you to ensure every detail is considered for your brand new home. 

> Choose the Features You Want

Typically you will be able to alter and customise the kitchen in the property as well as finishes to flooring, tiles, bathrooms and lighting. 

> Customise Your Home to Your Unique Needs

This is where we look at your lifestyle and needs, you may wish to create extra bedroom spaces or working spaces depending on how you are planning to use the property in the future. 

> Interior Design Packages

Perhaps the most exciting part of purchasing an off plan property is the ability to stamp your mark on the finished product. Here we can create a bespoke interior design package to furnish and finish the property exactly to your taste upon completion. 

Energy Efficiency And Reduced Running Costs

New build properties are designed to be as energy-efficient as possible, which means that they’re not only better for the environment but also for your wallet. Here’s why:

New build properties are constructed with environmentally-friendly materials that have a lower carbon footprint. This means that you can be confident that your new home is contributing to a more sustainable future. In many cases the builder will be using locally sourced materials.

> Highly Efficient Heating, Cooling, and Insulation Systems

New build properties are designed with the latest technologies in heating, cooling, and insulation. This means that your home will be more energy-efficient and you’ll save money on your energy bills in the long run.

> Globally Renowned Certifications

In Spain, many of the developers are building to a certification specification in order to be accredited with an eco friendly certificate such as BREEAM. These certificates show that your property was built to the highest eco standards possible and typically will add value to your property. 

Modern Design And Technology Features

New build properties offer a range of modern design and technology features that can make your life easier and more enjoyable. Here are some of the benefits:

> Contemporary and Innovative Design Elements

New build properties often feature contemporary design elements that are not present in older homes. These design features can include anything from state-of-the-art kitchens to open-plan living spaces. Developers are using a mix of materials such as stone, wood, ceramic tiles and water in their designs. 

> Integration of Technology into Home Systems

New build properties are also more likely to have integrated technology within the home systems. Smart home capabilities and automation mean you can control everything from the lighting to the heating with a few clicks on your smartphone or tablet. This technology not only improves the functionality of the home but also makes life more convenient and enjoyable.

Low Maintenance And Hassle Free Living

When you buy a new build property, you can enjoy a low maintenance and hassle-free living experience. This is because new build homes require minimal repairs and maintenance, as everything is brand new and up to date. Unlike older homes that may need constant upkeep, your new build home will give you more time and freedom to enjoy your life.

> Minimal Repairs and Maintenance Required

New homes are built to high standards that meet current regulations, meaning you won’t have to worry about outdated or faulty electrical, plumbing, or heating systems. As a result, you’ll need to perform fewer repairs and maintenance tasks than you would with an older home.

> Less Time and Money Spent on Home Upkeep

With a new build home, you’ll save both time and money on home upkeep. You won’t need to spend money on costly repairs, replacements, or upgrades to out-of-date systems. Additionally, you’ll spend less time performing maintenance tasks, leaving you with more time to enjoy your home and the lifestyle it affords.

> Peace of Mind Knowing Your Home is New and Reliable

Buying a new build property also gives you peace of mind, knowing that your home is new and reliable. You’ll have the assurance that the materials used and the building’s construction meet current safety standards. You can rest easy knowing that your home is a secure and comfortable place for you and your family to live.

Warranty And Guarantee Protection

Another one of the major advantages of buying a new build property is the warranty and guarantee protection you’ll receive. This means that you’ll have added safety and security for your investment.

> Peace of Mind With A New Build Warranty

New build homes will come with a warranty that typically lasts for 10 years. This warranty provides protection against any defects or issues with the property should they arise during the warranty period. This ensures that any problems with the property will be taken care of by the builder, giving you peace of mind.

> Equipment Warranty

You will have peace of mind that all of the technology and equipment in the house such as your machine machine and oven will be covered as new by warrantees ensuring no additional expenditure is required during this time for breakdowns. 

Potential For Appreciation And Investment Opportunities

Buying a new build property can also provide potential appreciation and investment opportunities in the future.

New build homes are often in high demand, which can result in an increase in property value over time. As the surrounding area develops, the value of your property can increase, providing you with a solid investment return in the future.

> Capital Growth During Construction

Typically investors will see capital growth on their property purchases during the construction period. This is because developers increase prices as construction advances and as units in their promotion sell throughout the selling phases. 

> Opportunity for Rental Income

New build properties on the Costa Del Sol will typically demand higher rental prices when compared to older properties as they are more desirable modern homes and new builds typically enjoy far superior community facilities such as pools, indoor pools, spa’s, gymnasiums, tennis courts, golf and restaurants.
