Stone Real Estate collected the latest annual results from 11 of the UK’s biggest housebuilders in terms of the delivery of homes within the sales market.
Countryside saw the largest increase in sales compared to the previous year at 26.7%.
Berkeley achieved the highest sold price at £725,000.
Michael Stone, founder and chief executive at Stone Real Estate, said: “Despite ongoing market uncertainty and other issues to have impacted the new build sector over the last few years, the nation’s big housebuilders have continued to support the market with the delivery of new homes.
“This has been vital in meeting the demand for housing from first-time buyers in particular and the consistently higher transaction levels and price growth achieved by the new build sector when compared to the traditional market is the proof in the pudding of the great work that has taken place.
“It’s also great to see that regardless of size or reputation there is a great variety of names ranking in the top spots when it comes to the most sales, the most improved performances, and the highest sold prices, which this demonstrates the diversity of the sector and those within it.”
