Are you wondering whether to buy a new home or buy old?

Obviously personal taste plays a big part, but there are also some practical reasons why it might make sense to buy new. From higher building standards to low-maintenance living, buying schemes to warranties – it’s important to look at the bigger picture before you decide.

Achievable, affordable buying schemes

We offer a number of options to help you buy, such as Part Exchange or our easymover scheme.

NHBC 10-year warranty for peace of mind

Our homes come with our own 2-year warranty and the NHBC Buildmark 10-year warranty as standard. Even before the 10-year warranty begins, NHBC carries out independent inspections at key stages during construction to help to minimise issues

No chain above you

Buying a new build can take away the risk of lengthy chains and unnecessary stress. In most cases you can move into your new home as soon as it’s complete, no waiting

Save on energy bills

Our new homes have a variety of energy saving features that can save you money. 

From clever ways to save water and keep your home cosy and warm, to energy efficient appliances, we've got it covered. Great for the planet, and great for your wallet, with an average saving of £2,200 a year.*


Less water waste

All new Taylor Wimpey homes use, on average, 30% less water than older properties, thanks to flow restrictive taps and water saving appliances.

Superior build quality

New homes are built to a higher standard than ever before, from the latest building materials to the newest appliances. In fact, the cost of upgrading an average 3-bed semi-detached to new build standard is over £73,000**. We work with the Environment Agency at planning stage and NHBC throughout the build, to guarantee you a high specification home.

You get a blank canvas

Whenever you move into a new home, it’s natural that you’ll want to put your own stamp on it. With new builds you have a blank canvas and you can even work with the builder to help shape the space the way you want it. And with Taylor Wimpey, you can use Touchpoint, our unique online portal which allows you to choose interior options and visualise how your new home will feel to live in.

Be part of a brand new community

We build more than affordable homes. We create jobs and build schools, doctors’ surgeries, parks and other facilities to help you get to know your neighbours. In 2023 we invested £405m in local communities to fund improvements and build new facilities, creating places where people want to live.
