Scottish housebuilder Mactaggart & Mickel Homes is offering a special deal to house-hunters who reserve one of its new homes in Scotland in the run-up to Christmas - £1,000 towards their first year's energy bills.
Joanne Casey, sales and marketing director at Mactaggart & Mickel Homes, says: "With rising energy costs and predictions of a harsh winter it's no wonder people are worrying about their fuel bills. New-build houses not only offer an opportunity to save in the long term thanks to the energy efficiency measures built into every property, but buyers can also enjoy their first year in their new home with one bill ticked off their list."
A study from the Building Research Council reveals that thanks to the latest standards of insulation, double glazing and heating systems used in today's new-build homes, owners can expect to save over £500 every year compared to what they would have to spend to run an equivalent, less energy-efficient property.
Available at a range of Mactaggart & Mickel Homes developments located across Scotland, the offer runs until 21st December 2012. From small apartments to spacious family homes, there's an excellent selection of homes at participating schemes:
