Garden offices predicted to remain important to property values in 2022

Property specialists Jackson-Stops have been peering into their crystal ball to make predictions about the market for next year including a 3%+ price rise, shorter chains, and more interest in ecofriendly features, but emphaising in particular that the work from home trend is here to stay.

A whopping 91% of the company's branches believe that that home offices and fast broadband connectivity will continue to be at the top of house hunters’ wish lists next year, with many noting that buyers want these working facilities to be located outside the main house in outbuildings or a garden office. 

Nick Leeming, chairman of Jackson-Stops, suggested that homeworkers who remain unaffected by the reopening of their offices will now have the confidence to make a permanent move to a more rural location. “Buying a home is a long-term commitment and with lockdowns still fresh in people’s minds, house hunters are looking for properties that are more flexible, spacious and rural than where they lived pre-pandemic," he said.
