Research shows house buyers aim high
In a recent survey commissioned by AA Home Emergency Response, first time buyers are still aiming high when it comes to owning their own home despite gloomy financial conditions.
The survey found that 37% of prospective home owners were setting their sights on a detached home highlighting that aspiration amongst first time buyers is as high now as it was in the 1970’s.
And, as Steve McElroy sales director with leading house builder Miller Homes commented, it is not entirely surprising. “In the Yorkshire region we can certainly identify with this as our experienced sales advisers explain it’s not only our apartments that attract first time house buyers but our three bedroom townhouses too.”
It seems that aiming high is not just a trait associated with first time buyers. The percentage of those moving up the property ladder and looking to purchase a property with four of five bedroom homes has also risen from 19% to 22% during the period 1998 – 2008.
“Miller Homes aims to make purchasing a new home as accessible as possible for as many people as possible,” said Steve. “We work hard to offer well designed, well built, affordable homes to a wide cross section of the population and we ensure we fulfil our customer expectations by enhancing their buying experience.”
One example of this is the recent launch of the Yorkshire ‘Choices Centre’ which allows all new buyers to add the finishing touches to their new home in a bespoke centre and receive expert advice. This includes choosing units, worktops, tiles and appliances to create a dream kitchen.
Miller Homes currently has twelve developments across the region and offers properties from one bedroom apartments to five bedroom luxury family homes, ranging from £77,500 to £320,000.
