With tighter restrictions on our social life due to Covid19, and no known end to the limitations we are given, many people are fleeing big cities to take up residence in locations with easier access to green space, whether that be a private garden or a nearby park.
With this in mind, it is already causing a noticeable effect on house prices and also rental prices for those that meet the requirements of outside space.
A recent survey by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) showed a significant increase in buyer interest for homes with gardens.
For those who would like to hedge their bets a bit, then becoming a landlord may be a better option, as rental prices are also increasing for properties with a garden or near a park, as current city dwellers are working from home, so no longer want to pay the premium to live within a short distance of their office, particularly now that their office is wherever they happen to live.
So if you’re thinking of selling or letting your home, and you have a garden or live very near a park, then now would be a great time to put your house on the market.
