Wise words and good advice
“Learn to see in another’s calamity the ills which you should avoid”
Definitely wise words from the Roman writer Publilius Syrus that still hold true today, if you’re wise enough to heed! Like most things in life, there are good and bad examples wherever you look; good and bad car dealers, good dentists, bad dentists. And that’s why when buying something as important as a new build home it’s essential to do your research so you can make an intelligent, well informed decision and find your dream home.
So what are some of things you need to know? Find out as much as you can about the builders you’re considering buying from. As a minimum ask the following; have they got a good reputation, what is the quality and finish of their building like, what do their customers say about their homes, do they use quality and low maintenance products, do they give a warranty from a reputable organisation such as the NHBC and do they give good customer service? Of course any new build home is bound to have a few minor ’snags’, but it is how they are dealt with by the builder that makes the difference between good and bad service. Also thoroughly read the small print, find out exactly what’s included and what’s not included in the cost of the home as some of the items shown in showhomes may be ‘extra features’ that you have to pay for.
Philip Makepeace MD of Norfolk Homes said: “It’s no wonder they say buying a home can be one of life’s biggest stresses, but if you do your homework you should be confident in your purchase. We’re proud to have built a great reputation for building new homes of the highest quality and exceptional customer service over the last 33 years. Many of our customers have bought a second or even third home from us! But we never take our success for granted and are always looking for ways to continually improve.” So we hope you heed Publilius’s words! Norfolk Homes, giving you so much more.
