Current Statistics ►

Estimates recently published in the ONS’ survey on ‘Families and Households: 2017’ show that the number of families in the UK have increased by 8.1% over the last ten years to 18,997,000.

Married couples and those living in civil partnerships are the most dominant group, with civil partnerships driving the growth of this group, increasing by 66.7% (versus 4.8% for married couples) particularly at younger age groups.

14 million dependent children are currently estimated to be living in families in the UK. It is, however, families with no children or no dependent children that were more common. Some 6.6 million (40%) 15-34 year olds live with their parents.

The ONS suggests that the larger numbers of young adults tending to stay at home for longer may be explained by staying in education and training for longer, formalising relationships and having children at older ages, and increased costs in renting or buying a home.

Top 20 new-builds for sale

Top 20 new-builds for sale

Gallery The Guild of Professional Estate Agents 21st April 2016

With the government pledging to build one million new homes by 2020, more buyers are being encouraged to buy newly built properties. So what are the perks of buying a new home compared to an older property? Firstly, they are built to the latest building standards and usually come with a 10-year warranty, meaning you’re covered if you have any structural issues. They’re typically more energy efficient, too, meaning they’re cheaper to run and, depending on how close they are to completion, you may be able to add a few of your own specifications.

Here’s a selection of our favourite new builds currently for sale across the UK today. They come in all different shapes and sizes, and are on the market for a range of prices. It seems that there’s a new build to suit everyone!
