Swimming Pools, Slides and Bowling Alleys Top Children’s Property Wishlist, Survey Reveals

Share To Buy polled a thousand six-to-ten year old children about what they would want to have in their future homes, and swimming pools came out with a commanding lead. Runner-up fantasy home features included a slide to go back to the bottom of the property from the top, as well as an array of others, including helipads and bowling alleys. Children displayed a preference for seaside homes, followed by countryside homes. Share To Buy is a shared ownership program that lets people buy shares of a house rather than the whole thing at once, paying rent on the part they do not own.

Key Takeaways:

  • Runner up features like helipads, bowling alleys and slides to traverse different levels of the property also scored well.
  • Share To Buy allows people to buy a share of a home and then pay rent on the share they do not own.
  • Since Share To Buy consumers can later buy additional shares in a house, it’s good for people who can’t afford to buy a whole house at once.

“Share to Buy surveyed one thousand 6 – 10 year olds about their hopes for their future home, focusing on what special features children would like in their own abode. Making a splash, almost three-quarters (74%) of participants said they wanted a private swimming pool in their house when they’re older.”
