The UK housing market is changing, to understand the Strutt & Parker research team’s view on the future implications of those changes.
For our second publication, ‘Housing Futures – Key trends shaping the residential market’, we expanded our survey by doubling its number of respondents and tested our established new tribes and housing solutions.
The survey identified further creeping trends like the impact that access to technology (broadband and mobile) had on housing decisions. It also highlighted that single occupied households and alternative family households are growing, that the younger generation is more open to the idea of renting and that those moving into retirement are seeking more interactive environments.
The impact of all of these trends inevitably means that in the future the homes we plan, design, build and live in must be different.
