Or perhaps you want to invest in this vibrant area, with plenty of new build homes in Birmingham ideal for buying to let.

Why should I buy a new build home in Birmingham?

As one of the UK’s biggest cities, there’s always a strong demand for property in Birmingham. The local market is strong, with house prices showing positive growth over recent years. This makes the area great for investing, while if you’re searching for new build homes Birmingham usually has a good supply. From desirable areas close to the city centre to popular neighbourhoods like Solihull and nearby spots such as Sutton Coldfield, you’re sure to find the perfect place for you and your family. 

When you buy a new build, you can enjoy the privilege of being the very first person to live there. All of the fixtures and fittings are brand new, while you may even be able to choose the spec of your new home. You can be sure your home’s been built to exacting modern standards, while open plan living, en-suite bathrooms and clever storage solutions all come as part of the package.

How to buy a new build home in Birmingham

When a new build home is complete, the process is almost the same as when you buy any other type of home. You need to arrange a mortgage as required, carry out surveys and searches and sell your existing home – if you own one. If you need help with the latter, don’t miss offers such as our Part Exchange and Movemaker schemes.

If you’re buying off-plan, the process is slightly different as your new home isn’t built yet. After finding the property you want to buy, you’ll need to pay a holding fee in order to reserve it. Then you should instruct a conveyancer as normal, before organising a new build mortgage. If you’re buying to let, ensure you get an appropriate buy-to-let mortgage.

When all the legal side of things is sorted you can exchange contracts off-plan, paying your deposit at this time. There may be a wait before your new home is completed, but once it is you can carry out a survey to check your property has been built correctly and to your agreed specifications. Once you’re happy, it’s time to complete and move in.
