Is your property in demand?

Monday 25 June 2012

A recent survey has revealed the most popular property types currently available in the UK. Conducted by estate agency organisation, Relocation Agent Network amongst its members, the survey found that two and three bedroom houses topped the list.

Over 80%1 of survey respondents indicated that two to three bedroom houses were the most in demand property type amongst potential buyers. Four or more bedroom properties came second2 and two to three bedroom flats/apartments were third3.

The survey sought to find the most popular area type for buyers too. Nearly half4 of Relocation Agent Network respondents reported town or city centres were the most popular areas to purchase properties in, with suburban areas coming a close second5.
