Gardens and open space are vital for house buyers
It is fair to say having access to open spaces and a garden if possible are priorities for house buyers in the current climate. Open space is crucial, and the property snapshot suggests 225 properties (out of 340) in Harlow have a garden.
Analysis of the market indicates that 274 of the listed properties have a parking space, which means a significant proportion of properties listed for sale in Harlow have this facility.
When it comes to properties that have both a garden and parking space, 186 listings feature both.
