BIG ENERGY SAVING WEEK: WHY BUYNG A NEW HOME IN LONGRIDGE CAN SAVE YOU MONEY?
New homes in Longridge come with an eco-friendly bundle, just in time for buyers to take advantage of BIG Energy Saving Week, which gets underway next week (Jan 18th-24th).
Buying a new build home by developers Prospect has plenty of advantages, not only does it mean maintenance and upkeep is significantly reduced when compared with buying an older property, but it also equals better energy efficiency and savings for homeowners.
Homes at The Ridings, on Whittingham Road, come with sustainable features including solar panels, Combi boilers and low energy lighting as standard.
Sam Williams, head of sales at Prospect Homes says: “Being kinder to the planet and looking at ways we can reduce our carbon footprint has become something we’re all much more aware of in recent years.
“Home at The Ridings not only look great, but they do their bit to help homeowners be more energy efficient. In turn this can save buyers hundreds of pounds a year in heating costs or the equivalent of annual subscriptions to Netflix, Amazon Prime, Spotify Premium and Apple Music with almost £50 left in change*.”
ONS data** shows the average energy efficiency score for new homes in England is rated within EPC band B (homes at The Ridings are in band B). In contrast the average energy efficiency score for existing houses was within band D. Older homes also produced the most CO2 emissions and have the highest estimated energy cost.
Buying an older property means buyers will more than likely end up paying much more towards their monthly bills plus if anything goes wrong with the house for example if the boiler breaks, it won’t be covered by a warranty like new build homes are and could result in even higher costs,” adds Sam.
As well as features such as kitchens, bathrooms and appliances being covered by warranty, new homes also offer buyers a blank canvas to style the interior to their own tastes and budgets.
Homes currently available at The Ridings start from £208,000 for a three-bedroom detached Rutland up to £290,000 for a four-bedroom detached Cavendish.
The Cavendish has a spacious lounge, downstairs cloakroom and a large open plan kitchen and dining area. A separate utility room links to the integral garage. Upstairs, the main bedroom has its own en-suite, while the remaining three bedrooms share a family bathroom.
Prospect Homes is also extending the Stamp Duty holiday at The Ridings so as an example, homeowners could save £4,500 if purchasing a Cavendish***.
Prospect Homes is part of the Riverside Group, one of the UK’s leading social housing and regeneration organisations. Setting them apart from other housebuilders, all profits from the sale of Prospect homes are re-invested into Riverside to finance their social value work and support some of the most vulnerable in our communities.
