According to Estate Agents Hamptons, Londoners bought 73,950 homes outside the capital in 2020 – the highest number in four years – with data suggesting that rural areas were high on the list of desired locations.
But, as restrictions are lifted there has also been a shift towards buyers returning to London and property search engine OnTheMarket reports a 31 per cent increase in London property searches in the last 12 months by people not living in the capital. However the majority of these seem keen to retain some of their new found space and outdoor living and searches favour the greener, more spacious areas such as Wimbledon Village, Richmond, Chiswick and Ealing.
