The Benefits of Buying a New Home


Why should I buy a new home from Westerhill Homes?

Purchasing a new home from Westerhill Homes gives you a high level of comfort. We are part of the award-wining Chartway Group and our sister company Chartway Construction has built your new home. This means we have been in control of building your home from the first spade in the ground to the final finishing touch. Each home has undergone a rigorous quality control procedure before it’s handed over to you.

Does this mean the chain is shorter?

Westerhill Homes is at the top of the chain which means you aren’t reliant on anyone else ‘up the chain’ only those behind you.

Does Westerhill Homes have any schemes for their buyers?

We have several schemes, take a look at our Buyers Guides for: Help to Buy Equity Loan, Easy Move, Part Exchange and Recommend a Friend.

What are the benefits of a new home over a second-hand home?

New homes are brand new.  The décor is neutral and fresh, the carpets are soft underfoot and you can start off with a blank canvas and create a style of your own.

All appliances are the latest specification, we include trend and design-led Kitchens and sanitaryware, energy efficient appliances, double-glazing, increased insulation and low-energy lighting.   Your new home should be cheaper to run as it’s been fitted with energy efficient heating and lighting systems.

Will I get support when I am buying a new home?

Yes, our Sales Consultants will guide you through every part of the process up until the day you move in when our Customer Services Team will take over. They’ll liaise with you, your Solicitors, your buyers Solicitors and all parties in your chain to help to achieve our exchange targets and make things as smooth as possible for you.
