You’d have to walk around in most areas, blindfolded, to not spot the plethora, the abundance, the sprouting of new builds locally and nationally.

Okay, we’ll stop waxing lyrical and talk instead about why they are cropping up and how we can help you as developers.

Firstly, new builds appeal to so many people because they are energy efficient, warm and come with a 10 year NHBC warranty and 2 year builder warranty.

You can choose kitchen units, bathroom suites, flooring, tiles, appliances etc and customise to your heart’s (and wallet’s) content.

Above all, there’s financial incentives too for first time buyers – in the form of Help to Buy.

This is effectively a shared equity scheme where only a 5% deposit is needed and it helps so many people get on the property ladder.

For example, in Bradwell, Great Yarmouth, new homes are advertised at £158,000 which with Help to Buy means a deposit of £7000, not the usual 20% or £30,000.

Consequently, new developments often sell quickly and phase one morphs into phase four in a matter of a few years.

How can Envision CAD help?

We obviously can’t source a deposit for buyers, but we can help further down the line with drawings and plans for an extension. Your two bed starter home may benefit from a larger kitchen to the rear and we’d be happy to advise.

We can help independent property developers too with our services.
