Why buy off plan?

Buyers buying new build home off plan

When you look at some of the advantages of buying off plan, you soon begin to see why so many of our buyers reserve their home with us before a spade has even touched the ground. 

You only have to explore Instagram, where a lot of our buyers document their journeys, to find out why they have chosen this route. 

1. Demand is high

Securing the home of your dreams, especially in a competitive market, is perhaps one of the biggest reasons to buy off-plan. It’s not unusual for our most sought-after developments to have thousands of people on a database waiting for updates, but sign-up figures in recent months are unlike anything we’ve seen before.  

@midford_on_the_meadow describe themselves as ‘new build rookies’ and have just gone through the process of buying a Midford home off plan. Their Instagram account takes you right through the countdown with them: “7 months after reserving our plot we got the keys to our forever home”

2. It unlocks choice 

If you have your heart set on a particular house-type or development, buying off plan is a sensible move. That’s not to say that we don’t have homes that are further along in the build journey, but the earlier you reserve your home, the more choice you will have and what’s more, depending on the stage of the build, you could even get to pick the fixtures and fittings. 

From the looks of it, @midford_on_the_meadow couldn’t be happier with how it’s turned out: “just look at the kitchen 🤤” 

3. Each step is exciting

We’re pros at guiding buyers through the process and as well as virtual tours, we have a choice of showhomes on a variety of developments to give you a true idea of what you’re buying into. You’ll also be invited to see your home being at different stages and @midford_on_the_meadow described the home demo day as: “the most amazing experience”.

4. We will deliver

It might make more sense to you to wait until you can see the finished product and understandably, some buyers prefer to wait until they see the development come to life (and there’s normally no stopping people at that point). But you can put your trust in us - and you don’t just have to take our word for it. We have once again been awarded a five-star rating by the House Builders Federation, proving that time and time again we deliver what we promise.

5. A new life awaits

If you enjoyed looking at @midford_on_the_meadow’s posts, you’ll find plenty more from our buyers on the @countrysidepartnerships page. We love to see our buyers continuing their design journeys long after they move in.
