There are many advantages to buying in a brand new building or direct from a developer. No chain means the sales process is simpler, and you may also benefit from variations in taxation on new properties as opposed to resale. Add this to the appeal of being the first to own the property and you can see why new ski developments are so popular.
Many new build ski developments are offered as fully equipped “turnkey” properties, and often incorporate top-level tech, meaning maximum energy efficiency and the bliss of being able to make sure everything is up and running when you arrive. Above all, buying new gives you the chance to enjoy all the comforts of home with minimum fuss.
