Since the easing of lockdown on May 13th, the reopening of the housing market has been energetic. While there still remains a shortage of properties on the market, estate agents are now busy valuing properties and sales are being agreed.
The lockdown has given many the chance to reflect on their lives and for a lot of us our needs have now changed. A huge proportion of us have been working from home and many along side children doing school work and this undoubtedly will have an impact on what we want from our homes moving forward. In recent times, there has been a desire for smaller low maintenance gardens but post lockdown will see many hankering after larger outdoor space. Open plan spaces in our homes have been popular for a long time now but with more people continuing to work from home many will have a need for extra rooms in order to work. The lockdown has resulted in a strong community spirit with people helping out neighbours so desirable villages will undoubtedly see an increase in popularity.
