Aspirational Living Proves a Reality for Homeowners in Emsworth

16/10/2014 - General

Despite rising house prices, latest research from Bloor Homes has revealed aspirational living is becoming a reality for many homeowners, especially those looking to new build to find their forever home as current reservations levels at Redlands Grange indicate.

Nearly two thirds (63%) of people in Hampshire think they will achieve their aspirational home and when it comes to what makes an ideal home, many recognise that it isn’t necessarily about size of the property.  Top of the priority list when buying a new home remains finding a property within budget (97%) and in the right location (95%), with location being the starting point for any house purchase journey. 

Furthermore, when it comes to what practicalities make their ideal home, eco credentials proved a key consideration for homeowners in Hampshire with double glazing (89%) and energy efficient heating (83%) the two most popular criteria. 

Martin Crick, Sales Director at Bloor Homes Southern, said:  “We undertook this research to understand the aspirations of homeowners in Hampshire and while the results show that some people may perceive their aspirational home is out of reach, the reality could be very different.  Living in the ideal home isn’t necessarily about having a massive property, it’s more about having the perfect home that’s in the right location and suits the homeowner’s lifestyle.

“Support from initiatives such as Help to Buy and Bloor Homes’ Home Exchange scheme are making that aspirational move achievable, as well as affordable, for many homeowners. What’s more, not only do we offer the highest quality and inspirational design, we also use the very latest in energy efficient technologies which, as our research shows, is incredibly important for today’s house hunter in their ideal home. 

“With many house hunters recognising that they are aspiring to buy a new build home, at Bloor Homes we have seen a surge in interest with reservations at some of our developments secured months in advance. We’d therefore encourage potential purchasers to get in touch now to secure their dream home.”
