One in five could be looking to buy this year
If you’re thinking of selling your home, you’ll be pleased to know that home buyer demand was reportedly up 35% at the end of January, compared to the same time last year. *
According to figures published on the Property Reporter website, in February, an independent survey of over 2,000 adults in the UK found that 18% intend to purchase a new home this year, increasing to 34% when looking specifically at respondents aged 18-34. *
The pandemic has influenced the features people look for when home hunting. The move to remote working means 43% of those who said in the survey that they were planning to buy a property this year, will be looking to buy in a different area to where they currently live, and the ongoing ‘race for space’ means competition remains high for homes with gardens and home offices. *
