5 great reasons to write a review


We all trust and value review sites. In fact, they’re proven to influence the decisions we make about products or services we’re considering. Here at HomeViews, our mission is to help with one of the biggest decisions of all – where to live. Leave a review on the site and you’ll be helping someone choose their next home. And the best part is, it only takes five minutes on average! Read on to find out more…

1. Help others

Have you visited a review site to read what others thought about a hotel, restaurant or product you were interested in? Most of us do this often. And just as you found this helpful, your insights on what it’s truly like to live in your development will greatly benefit others. Remember you have a unique perspective, beyond what can be found in the shiny property marketing brochures. And that’s what is most trusted by prospective residents.

2. Be heard

Review websites have been empowering the consumer for over a decade. For the first time ever they gave those on the receiving end of a product or service the opportunity to express and share their opinion, giving brands a chance to react accordingly. Just like them, HomeViews is a platform where you can share your honest opinion and have your voice heard – not just by those interested in your development, but by those managing it. You can find out more on this below.

3. Give your voice to your community

Have you read any of your neighbours reviews on HomeViews? Do you agree? If so, support their feedback with your own review or if you feel differently have your say. For those considering joining your community, the more insights they have, the better. Add your review and let them know what it’s really like to be part of the community they’re considering.

4. Provide honest feedback

Research shows that people are more likely to write a review when they’ve had an ‘extreme’ experience – be that positive or negative. If you want to get the attention of your developer or your building management then writing a review is a means of giving visible feedback At HomeViews, we work with developers and building managers so they are aware of reviews posted, and can have an opportunity to respond. Write a review and you can suggest ways to improve or simply say thank you! And don’t worry, you can remain anonymous if you like.

5. Be recognised 

Some people like to write reviews because they enjoy the public recognition of their opinions. HomeViews also gives the opportunity for your development, developer or building management to be recognised. Much like hotel or restaurant review sites, residential developments are given category ratings and customer awards based on the reviews of their residents. So, if you believe you are living in an award-winning development add your review and help get your development recognised.
