Tim Bannister, of Rightmove, said: “Areas around the North and South West are the stand-out seller’s markets right now, and places in Cornwall and Devon are continuing the trend of a desire to move to the seaside and countryside.

“Suburbs are also faring well as some people move further out from the centre of cities.”

“Both sale and rental properties in city centres have been suffering over the past year as the usual appeal to live there has temporarily been taken away, leading to more stock than usual being available, but we may see these start to shift more quickly over the next few months as lockdown restrictions continue to be removed,” he told Mail Online.

The coronavirus pandemic has seen some changes in the market as buyers priorities have changes.

Working from home looks set to be a part of more workers’ lives – and so space and environment have become more important.
