The Covid-19 pandemic has made many of us reconsider various elements of our lives. Where we’re living is naturally one of them, as well as what features our homes have.

After spending so much time in our abodes during lockdown, we all had a chance to work out whether where we live meets our needs.

It seems that many people have been considering a move in recent months, and a poll from found that having a garden is the number one priority for buyers who are looking for a new property in this post-Covid world, Property Reporter revealed.

The size of a property was the second most important factor in people’s decision about whether to make an offer, while the parking was the third most popular element to think about.

Interestingly, only two per cent of those questioned said that how their local housing market was performing would influence their decision about whether to buy a home or not.

Mortgage expert at Matthew Boyle explained that the desire for outdoor space means that those looking for a new home aren’t just looking at gardens.

“Some have even relocated to the countryside where there is more space and these results show this trend will likely continue, especially with concerns over a second wave,” he noted.

Research from Trussle found that, among 35 to 54 year olds, the most popular places to relocate to included Cornwall, Devon, Yorkshire and the Lake District, which indicates that there is certainly a greater number of people seeking homes that have easy access to the great outdoors.
