You may be surprised to learn that the cost of upgrading an older property to bring it up to the same spec as a new build home is just under £45,000 .
This covers the cost of everything from rewiring, fitting a modern kitchen, adding double glazed windows and all the other upgrades required to bring it up to the standard of a modern, newly constructed property.
Not only does a period property carry the risk of additional spending but it does not carry the peace of mind of a new home. New David Wilson homes come with an NHBC 10 year Buildmark Warranty, providing a 10-year structural guarantee and a two-year warranty on fixtures and fittings.
Not only is there less chance of things going wrong with a new property, but if it does the homeowner will not be left out of pocket, providing real peace of mind for a new buyer.
