Buying a new property has advantages over the old one. The accommodation is ready to be lived in upon delivery and does not require any work either immediately or in the years to come. There are therefore no additional costs to anticipate in your budget. In the case of a VEFA (Sale in the Future State of Completion), the guarantees cover you against possible poor workmanship or construction defects.
New housing must be built in compliance with 2012 thermal regulations (RT 2012). You therefore benefit from optimized energy consumption thanks to efficient insulation and energy-efficient equipment for heating, cooling or lighting the home.
The notary fees for a new home amount to 2 to 3% of the sale price (on average 6 to 8% for the old one). In addition, you can benefit from tax advantages if you make a rental investment by buying new.
