Marc Da Silva speaks to Nick Elliot of Asprey Homes.

Name and business title: Nick Elliot, Director, Asprey Homes.

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 types of properties is Asprey Homes building? We offer a wide range of projects, from mews developments to the creation of stunning individual residences and schemes with a mix of contemporary apartments.

How much does a new home by Asprey Homes cost to buy? From, £275,000 for a high spec, two-bedroom apartment in Caterham, Surrey to £1.4m for a five-bedroom, two-storey family house in Chislehurst, Kent.

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.

Is your company currently offering any incentives or discounts to homebuyers? No.

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.
