Ross explained: “Following the impact of coronavirus, we predict buyers will be looking for homes with a garden and a home office space, in the suburbs and countryside for added outdoor space rather than in cities.
“Sellers on the other hand need to adapt to the change in buyer preference.”
Getting a property survey will help homeowners identify what needs changed to increase the value of their home.
He said: “As we know, space is now at the forefront of buyer’s minds and they’re going to consider every single detail of a house before putting an offer in.
“Therefore, we advise sellers to instruct a chartered surveyor to perform a property survey, so they can take steps to rectify any major issues that will put buyers off or reduce the value of their home.”
