Lockdown has given many of us time to ponder the advantages and disadvantages of our properties.
According to research, a quarter (26%) of renters and homeowners now want different things from their property, with previously highly-valued characteristics slipping down the priority list1. More space has become a big priority for 30% of people, while a home office is now a must for 26%. Moving outdoors, a fifth (21%) are looking to live close by a public garden or park.
Property and lifestyle are closely linked
This year, we have had a completely different way of life forced upon us; this has cemented the link between the property we live in and the lifestyle we lead. Before the pandemic, a home on the commuter belt and close to pubs, restaurants and other amenities would likely have been more important than space or a garden. Now, many people desire a property that reflects a quieter indoor lifestyle and a new appreciation of the great outdoors.
