Covid-19: How have buyers' home requirements changed?

Dataloft Homemover survey revealed that just under half of buyers’ home requirements have changed as a direct result of lockdown and Covid-19. Just under a third of buyers said that having a garden has become a much more important consideration for them, a less urban area and being closer to family and friends has also increased. The importance of space to work from home and broadband speed has increased, reflecting buyers expectations to work from home more often following lockdown. The Homemover survey suggests that Covid-19 is likely to have left a legacy of consumer behaviour change, shifting the relative importance of house buyer requirements.
