Buying a New Build House: Part 2

As requested by you guys (seen here), here are the pictures of the 2 show rooms that sealed the deal. It's not until you go further into the buying process - when you get to decide on decoration options (if you buy early enough in the development), that they inform you that everything in the showroom is an upgrade and you will have to pay extra if you want that type of tile or wall colour or tap. It's also good to ask what does not come with your house. For example - grass is not included in mine (stupidest thing ever), also a fence that divides my neighbours garden from mine (even more ridiculous). Buying a new build is an amazing opportunity as you get the house that you want without the fuss (supposedly), but there are a lot of hidden costs and I mean a lot.

Hugs & Kisses

•Not my house - these are the show rooms - I finally move in to mine at the end of next week.

Nice house! We (me and husband) bought a new built low-rise condo 3 years ago and now it is ready.. there is nothing compared to the smell of your new house.. we even took silly pictures with the keys when we received them ;D Now thinking of renovating a bit to our liking.

Wow it looks beautiful!

I'm saving for my first house, and have been for 2 years, but I've got a few years to go - London prices are INSANE and I can't bear to leave this wonderful city :D
