Top 10 must-haves on buyers’ wish lists
The most popular keywords used by home-hunters searching on Rightmove are garage, annexe and acre*, with more unusual searches including castle, chapel and coach house
Industry experts say properties with an annexe are becoming more popular in the current market, and are in short supply making up just 2% of resale properties on Rightmove
The findings are based on Rightmove’s Keyword sort feature, which lets home hunters prioritise the properties in their search results that best suit their wish-lists
New Rightmove data reveals we’re a nation of car lovers, who also crave extra space either in the form of a building out the back or an acre of land.
Since it first launched back in May 2018, the three most popular search terms using Rightmove’s Keyword Sort feature have been garage, annexe, and acre.
This is a good depiction of a day in the life of one of our negotiators. If you feel that you could excel in a fast paced and exciting sales environment then please read our recruitment Ad to see if you will be writing your own blog for Henderson Connellan in the future.
