What Does Your Dream Home Look Like?


What Does Your Dream Home Look Like?

People always have a vision of what their dream home encapsulates, but one of the main struggles they have in realising it is the ability to differentiate the ‘wants’ from the ‘needs’ of the reality. Residential property development companies understand this and work hard towards achieving your property goals.

It’s fine to have a wish list when it comes to your home, but as the years move on certain items on it will change due to the ability to achieve them.

So to define that dream property, what are the key points that will not change in order to have property developers build that reality?

Making Your Budget Work for You

When preparing to have a bespoke property built specifically for you, your budget will determine a lot in how much of your dream can materialise.

You must also have in the back of your mind aspects that are not apparent in the moment. Maybe you will start a family or are currently planning one. This could cause a reshuffling of your home priorities which are much easier to take into consideration up front than the expense of making changes to your home afterwards.

Expect the unexpected in life and think about how lifestyles and tastes are going to alter over your lifetime.


To work out all of those things you want and all those that your dream home needs, write up a list of what is important and what is a luxury.

As examples, you will probably prefer a garden area that is lovely and spacious for outdoor play yet requires little maintenance and hardly any gardening. Your lighting requirements and how much you want natural light in the summer months to provide natural comfort will play a factor that may not be on the top of your mind, as well as how much space you require throughout your life cycle.

By figuring out how spacious your kitchen and lounges need to be, as well as how many bedrooms you will require throughout the years is among the chief space considerations. However, other areas you can think over is if you need to work from home do you need an office or study room? If you and your partner will end up with separate cars would you require a two-car garage?

By evaluating what rooms you need against how many you are going to need 5 years from now can save on extension work or even having to relocate to a bigger or smaller home within a few years.

All About the Location

Having access to the best area is one thing, but you need to think of the property value should you ever decide to move on.

You can rebuild, extend and update a house but you can’t simply lift it up and place it somewhere else. So when planning new build developments, it’s important to give it placement in an area that has access to schools, easy town access and transport links as well as surrounding properties that add value to yours.

No one wants to live by a troublesome area, so have genuine future thoughts about the distance and position of your surrounding areas with a view that one day you may want a swift and easy sale. Residential property development companies will offer advice on this matter.

I cannot fathom the amount of work put in by Virtu Homes over the time in securing the perfect home for my family. After the first initial meetings we are always skeptical that something would always put the spanner in the works in getting the home we wanted. Virtu Homes not only listened to everything we wanted in a home but also went far beyond with the final product. Absolutely wonderful people who have done everything we could have hoped for in providing our beautiful home.

Just genius. Everything that was provided to us by the team at Virtu Homes was 100% on the money and we are greatly satisfied with the results of our new home. We have a lot of guests usually and by taking into account our many family gatherings, they were able to provide a stylish and spacious home fit for a royal visit, let alone our own. Highly recommended.

I couldn’t be any happier with the work of Virtu Homes with the supply of my husband’s and my dream house. After talks with so many other firms who could not identify the right feel for our intended home, we were completely bowled over by the professional practice in providing the home Virtu has. Minimal fuss and we moved into an incredible house with ease. Virtu Homes we strongly recommend as the go-to business for the best living.
