Looking to upgrade the size of property you own in Kent? We chat to the team at the highly-respected Ben Siggins Estate Agents to find out more about why now is the perfect time to be upgrading the size of your family home.
“This year we have seen a huge spike in the demand for larger homes with more space. This is primarily down to people wanting to turn a bedroom or living room into a dedicated work from home space.
Another search that is very high in demand for people are homes with dedicated space that could easily be converted to a home office, or for a home with the perfect garden outbuilding. In fact, this up by 86% in last year.
“In addition, something that has become extremely important in property searches for people this year is the strength of the broadband speed. It is clear that working from home is the future for many people across Kent county.”
