Why should you buy a new build property


New Build Property and Why Would People Buy One

So, what is a new build property? Simply, new build developments are properties that are brand new to the market and have never been lived in before. With an emphasis on the importance to build more homes against the national property shortage currently throughout the UK, many new build developments are viewed as high demand housing.

Reduced Costs

With the government drive to build 300,000 homes a year by the mid-2020s, many people are finding the benefits in buying new build properties that fully reduces costs due to not requiring the same level of maintenance that a used property would present.

On top of the cost reduction in initial maintenance, energy usage levels are considerably much cheaper also. New build developments are better insulated than older properties, and most come with smart meters already installed and non-use of traditional fossil fuel burning installations like gas boilers and electrical meters.

New Fixtures

If you opt towards buying off-plan (meaning before it is built), you can work with the property developers to have certain aspects of the design done to your liking also.

One of the great advantages in buying new build developments is in the knowledge that the fixtures and fittings are worked into the price, including washing machines and dishwashers if required. You also can provide residential property developers with a wish list of items you would want such as flooring or carpet.


Having an energy-efficient home straight from the get-go means that you will not be paying out to retrofit your home with the required devices in the future, which can be a costly exercise to remove the old and implement the new.

Not only is a new build helping you to save on bills, but you are also provided with the best in items such as triple-glazed windows, insulated walls, roofs and doors which can be expensive to fit into the existing housing.

No Competition

The best part of working with residential property developers Manchester on a new build development is that you won’t compete for the property with any other party. Older properties listed on the market currently have 20 people vying for the house in the great housing rush, so being able to secure a home of your own is much less stressful when working with a housing developer for a home not listed through a majority of agencies trying to offload to meet demand.

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.
