HomeViews – dubbed the ‘Tripadvisor for property’ – is a new website for residential reviews, where those living in London’s new developments share their views, much like you would on AirBnb, Tripadvisor or Amazon
The HomeViews mission is simple – to support those looking for their next home with honest and trustworthy insights from the people living there. The site already has thousands of reviews from London residents, as well as contributions from viewers and industry professionals.
To celebrate its launch, the team has rounded-up their top Build-to Rent developments, as rated by reviewers…

What the residents say: ‘From the first time I Skype-toured my flat with Dave, to moving in with Kiran’s help, and Ha’s constant help and kindness, Fizzy has felt like a community since day one. On top of that, to have a community of tenants full of dog lovers who are supportive, kind, and helpful all the time is such an incredible blessing.’ Kaleigh H, verified resident

5 Fizzy Stepney Green, Stepney Green
HomeViews star rating: 4.53 (based on 47 reviews)
What the residents say: ‘The flats are stylish with high quality finish and appliances, the communal spaces are well kept and the amenities are great (library, pet station, dry cleaning pickup service). We especially like having an on-site building manager (I.e a ‘bob’) who is always helpful and friendly. When we have had issues communication is always easy. Easily the best renting experience I’ve had.’ James Brown, verified resident
