WhatHouse? Location Ratings – a new way to search for your home

Your perfect home is uniquely yours. What matters most to you in a home may not be the same as what matters to someone else. That's why we created the WhatHouse? Location Rankings, a new feature to help you find your perfect home match, no matter what your priorities are.

Are you on the hunt for a new home that ticks all your boxes? Then you have come to the right place. WhatHouse.com is the ultimate resource for finding your dream new build home in the UK. As one of the largest online property portals exclusively listing new build homes, we're here to guide you every step of the way.

Introducing our innovative WhatHouse? Location Ratings!

Our industry-first Location Ratings can tell you so much more about your potential new home than just location, price, and number of bedrooms.

We use official data to consider factors like proximity to a city or nature, broadband speeds, schools and shops in the area, or air quality, to give you a broader picture of the developments you’re considering. With WhatHouse? Location Ratings, you can make an informed decision and find a home that tick the boxes that are most important to you and perfectly aligns with your lifestyle. 

Location Ratings

Working with data experts CLSQ, we assess the latest information to give every current new homes development a rating under the core categories you see here. We use the latest data from various government departments, open source map data, and monitoring bodies such as OFSTED and OFCOM, we combine the results into an easy-to-understand, visual system.

The ratings are updated regularly, meaning you can be confident you’re making informed decisions based on accurate data to help you pick your ideal new home!
