Custom flooring provides extra incentive for new-build homebuyers in Oxfordshire

Homebuyers in Oxfordshire will spot a range of important differences between second-hand and new-build properties. And many choose the latter because of the many cost savings to be had.

Housebuilders like David Wilson Homes offer a range of incentives at developments across Oxfordshire - the icing on the cake for those who are already delighted to be a home’s very first owner.

When seeking out a home, it’s unusual to find somewhere that you could move straight into - without so much as a lick of paint,” said David Wilson Homes sales director, Rob Allen. “You instinctively want to make it your own.

You might even want to treat yourself to a new kitchen or bathroom. But the reality is there might be some serious work that needs doing too - like a new boiler, insulation or rewiring. And this is where new build homes come into their own.

Recent figures from the Home Builders Federation have found that the cost of upgrading an older home to the same specification as a new build property is nearly £45,000, based on an average three bed semi-detached house.

Larger items could include guttering and insulation, £9400; a new kitchen could set you back £7600; £6150 on double glazing; central heating £4400 and rewiring, £3200.
David Wilson Homes offers a range of offers and incentives to those wishing to move into homes at our developments across Oxfordshire. And, during September, we’re even offering complimentary standard flooring throughout our homes here to those taking advantage of our part exchange scheme at Orchard Gate, Poets Place and Abbots Meadow,’’ said Rob.

“A new build home offers you a blank canvas and gives you the chance to work with David Wilson Homes to help shape the house you’re moving into before you get there and our free flooring option is proving popular with buyers keen to make a fast move this Autumn.”

For additional peace of mind, David Wilson Homes is the only national house builder to offer an exclusive five year fixtures and fittings warranty in addition to the 10 year NHBC build warranty.

David Wilson Homes is currently building at a number of sites in Oxfordshire with homes currently available at developments in Abingdon, Carterton, Didcot and Wallingford. For more details visit
