Why Buy New

No costly upgrades or DIY

Upgrading an old home costs more than you think, to bring it to the same specification as a new build home could cost as much as £45,000. With a new home there are no costly repairs – older homes may need full rewires, have problems with damp, require new bathrooms and kitchens.

We choose quality contemporary fittings and fixtures, with a high specification included as standard. So instead of spending weekends doing DIY to fix a house up, you can spend time with your family and friends in your new Oriel Living home.

Lower energy bills

Buying a new home can save you money. 

It can be up to 50% cheaper to run a new build home compared to the equivalent Victorian house. This means for a 4 bedroom house you could save as much as £1,410 a year. Leaving you more money to spend on things you enjoy.

The insulation, efficient boilers, double glazed windows and doors are just some of the reasons your new home will be greener and cost you less than an old home.
