House builders moving towards larger homes

House builders moving towards larger homes

More people are now looking to buy larger houses instead of flats in the city centre, which means that the house building industry is moving towards these property types instead of the smaller structures.

Steve Turner, head of communications at the Home Builders Federation (HBF), said that the change was all down to planning and demand.

"House builders build what the market demands and we have definitely seen a shift away from city centre apartments and flats to larger family homes."

It was reported earlier this week that Knight Frank has discovered that the majority of people are now seeking out family homes when renting because they now see their house as a long term place to stay rather than just a stop gap before they move to buy their own home.

It said that 87 per cent of the market is showing a demand for four and five–bedroom houses.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801374071-ADNFCR
