Open and Green Space – up by 60% on Google compared to previous year
When moving to a new home, it’s clear the nation rates access to outdoor and green spaces as important. Having a local park, green space, woodland, or open countryside nearby helps with mental and physical wellbeing(3); no wonder people are ranking this as not just a ‘nice to have’, but a key factor in choosing their new home and community.
Searches such as ‘Best National Trust places’ (60% increase) and ‘kids outdoor play area near me’ (50% increase) were top contenders when it came to necessary outdoor spaces. And not forgetting taking care of the four-legged members of the family was also apparent, as ‘good dog walks near me’ searches rose by 70%, all in the last 12 months.
It’s clear that there really are some things the nation just can’t live without, and having them right on the doorstep is a no-brainer for 2023 house hunters. From family essentials such as schools and nurseries, to entertainment, dining and exercise, the key to a great community is unveiled, thanks to St. Modwen Homes.
