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. Source: Dataloft Homemover Survey
