With more people working from home, house hunters are looking for more space where they live… both inside and outside.

If you are thinking of selling property in Hayes & Harlington, we look at how this is one of the big drivers of the recent surge in house prices and what this means for the price you can get in the area.

What has caused people to want more space where they live?

People now need space where they can work from home without interruption.

Covid has led to more people working from home and taking part in recreation close to where they live. This has led to a new-found appreciation of the need for space both in their home and in their local area.

People now need space in their property for a home office or separated space where can they work without interruption.

Also, as they no longer have the social aspect of the office and have more time due to less commuting, they need open space with amenities near their home to enjoy when they need a break from the “office” and to socialise.

Why has demand for space increased sale prices in Hayes & Harlington?

One of the big drivers of the recent surge in London house prices is the demand for more space where people live, both inside and outside.

When people want to enjoy all that London offers but also need more space, they look to somewhere like Hayes & Harlington.

This area in west London is seen as somewhere that offers more affordable bigger-sized properties and amenities such as nearby Manor farm, while also providing good transport links like Crossrail and nearby Heathrow airport.

After a time like we’ve had recently, people are now looking at areas such as Hayes & Harlington when looking for both space and proximity.

Why is now a good time to sell your property?

With the property market having been shut down for a period last year, people are now ready to buy.

During the pandemic, people spent a lot less on holidays, entertainment, eating out, etc. Now house hunters have more cash to upgrade their home, and first-time buyers have been able to save for their deposit.

In addition, the recently announced government 95% mortgage guarantee scheme and the extended stamp duty holiday are great for sellers as buyers can now afford a higher price for their dream property.

This increased property buying power means there is now a sudden surge in demand for properties in the Hayes & Harlington area.
