One-on-One interview: Siobhan Staunton at Marsh & Parsons

Sun 02 Jun 2013

Name and business title: Siobhan Staunton, Head of New Homes, Marsh & Parsons .

Where is your firm selling new homes? All new homes development we are marketing are located close to one of

our 19 offices in central, west and south west London. Our network is especially appealing to housebuilders as it

allows us to cross-sell.

What types of properties are on offer? We sell both apartments and houses ranging from large developments to

smaller, boutique-style properties. To give an example, we are currently marketing a selection of all-singing,

all-dancing apartments with cinema rooms, as well as some stunning eco-houses, which are light, spacious and

efficient to run.

How much does a new home cost to buy? Our existing stock of new homes currently starts from 445,000.

What makes a new home stand out from the crowd? The finish of a new build home is very often the main draw

for purchasers. Also appealing is the way they are planned, which is always inline with everyday needs compared

to buying an older-style property. Flexible living accommodation, en-suite bathrooms and useable outside space,

often incorporating courtyards or roof terraces are very attractive to the modern buyer.

Have you noticed any particular buying trends recently? Running costs of a property are very much at the

forefront of a buyer's mind when looking to purchase. Very early on in their search, buyers are increasingly asking

questions about the renewable energy sources and overall running costs of a new home. As a result, developers

are now looking at what they can add to a new build property at the development stage to ensure it is as energy

efficient as possible.

Is your company currently offering any incentives or discounts to homebuyers? Various housebuilders will offer

incentives, based on a buyer's requirements. It's always worth speaking to one of our Sales Consultants to see

what is on offer.

Which new homes development potentially offers the best property investment prospects? The Clockhouse in

North Kensington is a fantastic investment opportunity. The rental yields achievable are very attractive and the

area is an up and coming part of the Royal Borough, yet still much more affordable than neighbouring Notting


What is Marsh & Parsons' USP? Our local know-how' sets us apart from the competition; all of our people have

extensive knowledge of the areas they work in. Our growing network of offices and their prime positions is also a

huge selling feature of our company.

Which of your current new build developments do you think stands the best chance of winning a What House?

Award? We are selling The Greenhauses in Brook Green on behalf of Octavia Living and it's one of my favourite

developments. It is eco living at its best and the features of the house really make it stand out from the crowd.
