Although older homes tend to have character and charm, there are several pitfalls that people don’t necessarily consider before they purchase. These include the need for modernisation and renovation, maintenance work and possible problems with ensuring that all the paperwork pertaining to it are in order. This is why you should consider buying a new home in Malta.
There are numerous benefits to doing so, which we’ve outlined for you below. Here’s why we believe that buying a new home in Malta is the right decision for you:
Older homes in Malta tend to require much more maintenance than a brand-new home would. In fact, if you buy a brand-new home, you probably only need to worry about minimal maintenance work for the first few years of ownership.
Is an en-suite bathroom a must? Perhaps you’re insistent on a built-in dishwasher, or having CCTV coverage and the ability to swipe yourself into your apartment block. A new home in Malta is much more likely to have most, if not all, of the modern conveniences that we’ve all become accustomed to.
Increased Energy Efficiency
New Homes in Malta are likely to have insulation in the walls and ceilings, as well as double-glazed windows. In some cases, it’s also possible to buy properties that have solar panels and solar water heaters for the best-possible energy efficiency. These energy savers are usually not part and parcel of an older home.
No Need for Renovation
An older home in Malta is likely to need substantial renovation work when purchasing it. This is generally the case as there are probably rooms to be brought up to modern standards, roofs to be repaired, plumbing to be changed and electrical wiring to be redone in order to make it habitable. This will not be the case when purchasing a brand-new home. Another benefit would be that the layout of a new home can be altered to your taste.
Everything is Brand-new
From the paint on the walls, to the fixtures and fittings in the bathroom, to the kitchen appliances, a brand new home is just that – brand new. That means that there’s likely absolutely nothing you have to do in order to move in to the place – except, perhaps, choosing the must have furnishings you’ve been eyeing!
As a result of all the above, a new home in Malta tends to be a whole lot more affordable than an older one, simply because there is much less to be done when moving into a new home, if anything at all.
