Knowing how to build sustainable value into residential developments is all about understanding buyers and their changing requirements.  

New evidence suggests there are now more factors that influence property choice than just size and location. Some may surprise you…

Real value from real growth

The new relationship we have with our homes due to COVID is changing what we look for in a property according to a new survey of London’s estate agents. The results are very revealing.

Firstly, properties with a view are now sought after. We cannot all live with sea views but managed greenery and landscaping is a ‘must have’ for many buyers. Secondly, access to outdoor space, a garden or patio area, is highly prized.

Thirdly, there is the issue of noise and noise-abatement. Relative peace and quiet, or at least shielding from exterior noise as we all spend more time working and relaxing in our homes, is a new plus.

What do all these features have in common? A desire for natural features, plants, planting and naturally ‘sympathetic spaces.’

Plant appeal

Given this new customer demand for greener spaces, the opportunity exists to begin building ‘green assets’ into new developments and refurbishments.

At Valley Provincial we have the experience and the know-how to design, plan and incorporate gardens and green spaces into even the most challenging of locations.

Roof terraces, walkways and verges, all kinds of plots can be converted and augmented with the right planting to offer more appealing views, that sought-after personal outside space and even sound absorption and seclusion.

With the right expertise, new developments and renovations can command a premium that now comes with built-in ‘plant appeal’.
