Here’s why the choice of ‘your home’ over ‘a home’ is the most satisfactory option.


New Builds vs. Existing Homes

In all the current rush and craziness in trying to secure new housing developments in Manchester, which will become the perfect home for your family, there are two options that you aim towards in buying a property – New build developments and Existing homes.

There are benefits to both, but rushing in and not getting less than what you really want will only require you to move once more. Having residential property developers build especially to your needs is a decision that is worth the time over moving into the first available choice.

New Build

When exploring the option of having a new build home, you really are setting out on a blank canvas where opportunity and satisfaction connect.

Everything that is being implemented is fresh from tiling and paint to kitchen and bathroom fittings. Nothing has been used by multiple generations of households. This also means that when you move in you simply are unpacking your belongings and not needing to install anything or clean it rigorously.

When you have a new build developed for you, there is nothing but top-spec smart home features that are a part of any new building regulations. With space being the new requirement for homebuyers, you can opt to have whatever you desire as part of your home, from gym space to outdoor buildings for offices or function rooms. By buying off-plan you can work with the developers to have a say in the overall design, which is great if you have an idea of fittings and layout.

New builds also save money on bills due to their compliance with energy efficiencies, such as smart meters, LED bulbs and heat pumps amongst other items. You could also have the home solar powered to cut down on bills completely and live off-grid.

You also have the benefit of having a home without a chain of buyers above you, which is one of the biggest stresses about buying a new home.

Existing Homes

People love the thought of moving into older buildings for their vintage appeal but there are drawbacks to it.

For starters, you will have to deal with the existing owners and any onward property chain. If you do get the home you will expect maintenance from the first day of moving in, even if you were not planning on doing some renovation work. Plus you run the risk of the building having asbestos in its development, which will cost a pretty penny to be tested and removed professionally.

You will also discover that older properties are slow to adapt to energy efficiency and the bills will be higher as a result. In order to get the property how you want it, it is going to cost money and no doubt planning permissions if it is a vintage building.

Obviously, having bespoke new housing developments in Manchester is easier on your budget in the long term and offers you complete comfort from the moment the keys are in your hand. To explore your home potential, contact the team at Virtu Homes today.

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.
