WITH the number of British adults saying they want to buy a new home doubling from 24 per cent to 58 per cent over the course of 2018, the interest in new homes is going up and is only set to increase further.

The new homes team at Mishon Mackay have seen an increase in enquiries for their current portfolio of new homes, with people looking for homes that are ready to move into.

As Chancellor Phillip Hammond extends stamp duty relief to first-time buyers of shared ownership homes worth up to £500,000 and announces a £500 million cash injection for the Housing Infrastructure Fund to aid the construction of 650,000 new homes, the time is ripe for buyers looking to embark on the journey to owning their first home.

Julie Frith, director of new homes at Mishon Mackay, said: “We are really starting to see an increase in interest for our portfolio of new homes, especially from long-term renters who are now looking to buy their own home.

“The convenience of new builds is attractive for these buyers and, with a fantastic range of properties across Brighton and Sussex, the new year is the perfect time to make the move and take advantage of some of the current offers.”
