Gráinne Gilmore, of Zoopla. said: “The "search for space" among homeowners in the wake of several lockdowns has made family houses highly desirable in the market. These houses usually have a garden and can offer an extra bedroom which can be used as a home office. The demand for this type of home means that supply is becoming more constrained, especially in areas within the wider commuter zone of larger cities and more rural areas.”
