Uncertainty is always something that holds people back from taking advantage of the right time.


Will Selling Land Be Advantageous in 2021?

If you are a landowner or own an old building that is currently unoccupied, you possibly are interested in selling up but may have this overall feeling that by the time the sale happens the demand for housing may enter a slump, therefore affecting the potential of selling it at a good rate.

Whether you’re looking to sell, and with the housing market currently seeing a huge surge, you may feel that by the time everything is in line to sell your land, the surge will be over and interest will below.

In reality, it has never been a better time to take advantage of selling that unused land to residential property developers despite the looming stamp duty holiday deadline. The surge in property always has ups and downs, but with many positives for housing on the horizon, it is a good time to make contact and start a discussion.

Large Interest in Green New Build Developments

No matter how things play out, the UK drive to provide affordable green energy homes is a major focus, and all new build developments will be expected to have environmentally friendly fixtures and components.

With a directive that all new build properties are to be inclusive of the green initiative, people will tend to want new properties over those that have been refurbished to comply. Newer housing developments such as the ones built by Virtu Homes have a high sale rate prior to the properties being fully finished, which highlights the high interest in new property that already adhere to this greener outlook.

A plot built upon your land of green new build developments will always continue to attract high interest despite an end to the holiday.

The Affordable Mortgage Situation

Just recently, with the implementation of the affordable mortgage scheme, record amounts of enquiries are being made on housing by first-time buyers.

This showcases that there are more people wanting to house than initially thought and those factors do not go away, that rate of interest will continue way into next year and beyond. It is also feasible to think that those who miss the extended deadline will also not give up on their drive for housing, which provides two unique sets of people looking for properties moving onwards.

Housing development on your land or apartments made from a disused building will be of high interest to first time buyers looking to get onto the property ladder for a long time after 2021.

Continued Demand for Something Bigger

No matter what there will always be a demand for upscaling current housing requirements.

Families want much larger space to work, play and co-exist within and areas with garden space. A bigger emphasis on gated communities and luxury surroundings has seen a large increase over the past year, and if you have the space to have this kind of luxury created by property developers then you are in possession of a prime piece of potential.

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.

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.
