Leading boiler manufacturer Ideal Heating have launched an interactive property map to explore average property sizes across the UK.
The housing market is currently experiencing a ‘race for space’ with buyers searching for more floor space and prioritising access to a garden or outdoor area.
Shifting housing preferences are “continuing to drive activity, with people reassessing their needs in the wake of the pandemic,” said Robert Gardner, Nationwide’s Chief Economist.
The interactive map allows users to compare property sizes in their area against the national average.
Jo Shepherd, Chief Marketing Office, Groupe Atlantic said:
“We have all had to rethink how we use our homes and living space in the last 12 months. The interactive map gives people the opportunity to explore which regions offer the most living space and how their home compares.”
UK house prices have continued to rise, increasing 13.4% in the year to June, the fastest increase in 14 years. Figures released by Nationwide show that the average house price is now £245,432, an increase of over £29k in 12 months.
