What do buyers and renters find essential in the current climate?

Published in Lettings on 6 May 2021 by our Marketing Team

More than a quarter of UK homeowners and renters have claimed that their property priorities have changed since the COVID-19 outbreak.

 
Previously highly-sought after and high-value property features have dropped down the priority list for homebuyers and tenants, as they now seek different factors when looking for a property that meets their needs and lifestyles.
 
Easy commutes to work, proximity to local shops and restaurants, and local public transport links are no longer as desirable as they once were.
 
Instead, we have noticed a significant increase in those searching for more space, whereby those searching are willing to compromise on location or local amenities in return for larger bedrooms and a ‘work from home’ zone.
 
Having access to a private garden or nearby green space has also become one of the top preferences for homebuyers and renters, especially in light of reduced travel options this summer.
 
Are you looking to buy, sell, rent or let this year?

One in three properties receive an offer one hour after viewing

The housing market once again exceeds expectations after a poor reception from the chancellor’s mini-budget and regular talk of a possible slowdown, as current research suggests that in 2022, almost a third (31%) of properties are now receiving offers within an hour, compared to a mere 7% in 2018.
