Taylor Wimpey’s stunning new build homes in Gillingham at Mistletoe Court offer buyers huge potential savings by avoiding the need for costly repairs and maintenance.

Kent property-seekers are being urged to reap the financial rewards which come with buying a brand new home at Taylor Wimpey’s Mistletoe Court development of property for sale in Gillingham.

Research has revealed the average person who buys a second-hand property for sale in Kent spends £22,000 on getting it just the way they want it, plus at least five hours per week spent on DIY jobs and gardening to bring things up to scratch*.

The potential headaches don’t end there, though, with poor energy efficiency, dated security and safety features, no guarantees or warranties, structural problems, and the hassle and uncertainty of a property chain making buying many second-hand houses for sale in Gillingham a risky, stressful and expensive business.

But, by buying brand new at Mistletoe Court, home-hunters in search of new homes for sale in Gillingham can sidestep all of these potential problems and enjoy a healthier bank balance in the process.

Jason Stokes, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey South East, says: “It really pays to buy one of our beautiful brand new houses in Gillingham at Mistletoe Court, as home-owners are eliminating all the unforeseen costs which can come with an older-style home.

“They can relax, safe in the knowledge there’s no upward property chain to worry about – as well as look forward to lower energy bills and having no expensive DIY projects, maintenance issues or repairs to worry about.

“All new homes at Mistletoe Court also incorporate modern security features and meet the very latest stringent fire safety legislation.

“Add in the great-value prices of the beautiful new homes at this stunning development and it’s hard to imagine home-buyers considering living anywhere else!”

According to the National House-Building Council (NHBC), new Taylor Wimpey properties are six times more energy-efficient than older-style homes, offering a saving of up to £500 a year on energy bills. Double-glazing and insulation on all properties at Mistletoe Court keep out expensive draughts and keep the warmth inside, while new boilers help reduce heating costs.

A brand new home also means a fresh start and a blank canvas on which a new owner can stamp their individual style, with no DIY or repairs necessary. And with a brand new fitted kitchen and new bathrooms included in the price of every Taylor Wimpey property at Mistletoe Court, there are no expensive renovations to consider either.

In addition, all Taylor Wimpey homes come with the reassurance of the 10-year NHBC Buildmark, as well as a two-year warranty from the housebuilder which covers many items not included in the NHBC Buildmark scheme.

Stylish brand new three-bedroom houses are now on sale at Mistletoe Court from just £175,500, while spacious four-bedroom homes are priced from only £194,995.
