Faced with the prospect of a lockdown-free summer, buyers are anxious to move quickly, resulting in record numbers paying over guide price to secure their dream home.

In the space of just 18 months we’ve seen homebuyers rush to the countryside as they’ve swapped lifestyles and jobs to better suit their own needs post-lockdown.
However, while requirements have altered dramatically for some, the popularity of online searches for the perfect location shows that this remains high on the list of buyer priorities.
