New build homes are full of positives


New Build Home Decision Makers

Personal preference is the one key that unlocks the door of your decision between new build developments or second-hand homes. Some people believe that a new build home may not be built to last because they are mass-produced housing and that knowing how to design a new home to build with time and care lasts longer.

This however is not true, not in today’s market at least. People purchasing new build homes today experience countless positives to their decision making.

Low Repair Cost

When you purchase a new build, straight away everything is fresh, new and in perfect working order. No calls to the repairman or expensive labour costs and if something is not right when moving in you have a period of time where it can be fixed at no cost to yourself.


New build homes will be constructed with all the latest building regulations, meaning that fire-resistant materials, state of the art smoke alarms and non-use of asbestos-related materials will fill out your home.

Circuit breakers will also be a part of your home to add extra electrical safety measures and security will be adhering to the British Standard Security Acts with your locks and doors. Also, many developers now provide smoke and intruder alarms which can decrease your premium on home insurances.

Environment and Cost Friendly

With all-new build developments, you have installed the most modern heat-preventive technologies like double glazing, roof and wall insulation and draft proofing. What this means is your new build is cheaper to heat and does it much faster also.

As the country makes great strides to ensure a greener environment, the housing developments being put into action now include such features as dual-cistern toilet flushes and fitted showers, decreasing the carbon footprint in a greater capacity than second-hand housing.

The Look Amazing

The big draw towards a new build is its guaranteed satisfaction upon purchasing it from property developers. Older homes generally require some renovation work that can get very pricey once you factor in the asbestos removal, planning and demolition of sectors of the house.

With a new build, they are designed with the homeowner in mind to be space-efficient, decorated and fitted to the requirements from the get-go. Kitchens will be fully fitted with the latest designs and your boiler will be state of the art also. New builds are constructed to the highest standards and come with a structural warranty which proves that these homes are built to last.

If you want to live in comfort, aim for new build developments from reputable residential property developers. Contact the team at Virtu Homes today for more information about how to design a new home to build to perfection.

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 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.

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.
