During lockdown, the popularity of bungalows soared. A blog on rightmove.co.uk said: “New research from our data analysts shows that the most sought after property types being enquired about are now exclusively houses and bungalows.

“The desire for more space, a bigger garden and maybe even a spare room for a home office has led to flats falling out of fashion with both buyers and renters in the current market.

“We worked this out by taking the number of people enquiring about each property type on our site and dividing by the total number of available properties of each type to gauge how much competition there is for each type.

“Buyers on the hunt for more space has led to two and three-bed flats going out of favour and four-bed and six-bed houses becoming more popular.

“Meanwhile, renters looking for a garden has seen studio flats replaced with two-bed houses as the most sought after property type.”
