Meeting the needs of the next generation of home buyers and renters, Dec 2018

To address the housing shortage and ensure that the housing stock deficit is erased the UK needs to build 340,000 new homes every year until 2031. As such, the residential construction sector is under increasing pressure to build the volume of homes the country so desperately needs, which will require not only meeting but exceeding the Government’s current pledge to build 300,000 new homes annually. It’s also critical that these homes meet the needs and demands of future homeowners. 

To gain insight into this, Eurocell surveyed 1,000 25-40-year old renters and home owners to investigate their views on the subject. Respondents were asked questions on a wide range of issues including their home ownership prospects, attitudes towards sustainability credentials in future homes, views on building design, the impact of homes on their wellbeing, as well as their views on how homes could be made more affordable. Following this, Eurocell asked experts from Simpson Haugh, Hawkins Brown, BDP and The High Street Group to analyse the findings and provide insight into the trends that they are currently seeing in the market.
