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 37 properties (out of 53) in Sawbridgeworth have a garden.

Analysis of the market indicates that 49 of the listed properties have a parking space, which means a significant proportion of properties listed for sale in Sawbridgeworth have this facility.

When it comes to properties that have both a garden and parking space, 22 listings feature both.
