HomeViews has published a number of residential developments on the Website and, from time to time, more developments are added at our discretion.
When using the Website for business purposes, users may also submit a new development to HomeViews. New submitted developments will only be published with an approved resident review. During its launch phase HomeViews is accepting developments built from the year 2000 within the UK and with at least 50 apartments. The development may be mixed use but must have a primary focus as a private use residential development. Reviews for developments not meeting these criteria may be accepted but not published until HomeViews has widened the scope of listed developments.
A development’s star rating is calculated from a combination of each reviewer’s overall star rating and their four category scores – Design, Location, Lifestyle and Value. The Management score does not impact the development star rating as this score can be separately attributed to a management company.
Please note that reviews from verified users carry more weight when calculating development ratings than non-verified users. This is because verified-users have been established as originating from individuals who have proved their connection with the relevant development. More information on the verification process is set out below.
Along with reviews and ratings from residents, we also accept reviews and ratings from those who have viewed a property. However, it’s important to note that viewer scores do not affect a development’s rating.
