Residential Property

Most searched terms by property buyers revealed

The need for a garage, off-road parking and a garden are amongst the major issues for most house-hunters in the UK.

Garages, gardens and parking are the top three “must-haves” for residential property buyers in the UK.

It’s based on analysis of searches made on property website Zoopla over the last year.

Bungalow” was the fourth most-searched term, followed by “detached” – suggesting the longing for a stand-alone property remains high.

Laura Howard, consumer expert at Zoopla, said: “The once unfashionable bungalow continues to make a comeback highlighting an ageing population that wants to enjoy the benefits that single-floor living provides.”

Rounding out the top 10 were annex, freehold, rural, acre and sea view.

The analysis also found regional variations.

For example, searches for cottages were particularly common in northern England, the Midlands, the east of England, the South West and Scotland.

Londoners, meanwhile, appeared to crave their own slice of greenery, with “garden” the most popular search term.

The capital and Scotland (where garden was also most popular) were the only places where garage did not come top.

Here are the top 10 search terms in Britain:

1. Garage

2. Garden

3. Parking

4. Bungalow

5. Detached

6. Annex

7. Freehold

8. Rural

9. Acre

10. Sea view
