Where is your firm developing new homes? Historically we have developed new homes in Kent and Greater London, but more recently started acquiring and developing sites in Surrey as we grow our brand presence.

What makes a Asprey Homes home stand out from the crowd? Desirable locations, aesthetically pleasing and well-designed architecture and landscaping, innovative interior specifications and attention to detail - these are the hallmarks of an ‘Asprey' home.
Have you noticed any particular buying trends recently? The type of property we have available at the moment has been most attractive to families trading up or down, depending on their circumstance. Situated in sought after areas, our properties are often sold to those trading up as their second or third home or those trading down to release some equity.

Which Asprey Homes development potentially offers the best property investment prospects? We have a scheme in Caterham that could be excellent for investors. It is desirable, modern and very close to the heart of the Caterham town centre. Investors could expect a rental yield of at least 5% per annum on these stunning apartments.
What is Asprey Homes' USP? Asprey Homes is well known locally for maintaining high standards of design, craftsmanship and customer service. Many of our purchasers are repeat buyers or have been recommended by other Asprey Homes purchasers.
Has Asprey Homes ever won a What House? Award? No. We haven't entered the What House? Awards to-date, but this is something we are considering in the future.
