International Property Trends: It’s all about outdoor space


Over the past few months, our homes have become increasingly central to how we live our lives.

During this global pandemic, it has become an incredibly versatile place – it was where we worked, slept, ate, socialised, exercised and relaxed, leading to a shift in the way we see our immediate environment, and what we want from it.

A recent Knight Frank report has shown that one in four respondents stated that they were now more likely to move in the next 12 months. According to the Knight Frank Global Survey, which outline impact of the pandemic on residential buyers’ attitudes, topping the list is the desire for a large garden/outdoor space. 66% of all the respondents surveyed voted that having your own substantial outdoor space is more important for them now than it was pre-lockdown.

If moving is on your mind, find out more about the properties that Knight Frank has on the market with wonderful outdoor space featured below:
