The pandemic, lockdown and teleworking have changed the perspective of what we need in a home. Aspects that previously were not important have become a priority. And all this has had a consequence on our needs when purchasing a home.
Thus, living in the centre of cities has ceased to be a fundamental aspect when choosing a home. Today, we seek specific characteristics, although it is necessary to move away a bit. If the area we choose offers convenient services and transport, it doesn't matter if it's not the city centre.
New priorities in the purchase of housing
Now more than ever, we conceive our home as a space to live. That's why we've changed our priorities and now look for some specific criteria:
• Terrace or garden: the need to be outdoors, to have a small oasis at home, has taken on fundamental importance after the pandemic.
• Swimming pools and communal areas: the construction of swimming pools in single-family homes skyrocketed during the pandemic due to mobility restrictions. In a residential complex, communal areas with sports facilities, playgrounds, and swimming pools are very demanded.
• Large rooms and diaphanous spaces: these compartmentalized dwellings to the extreme have gone into the background. Among our priorities in housing, we include spacious rooms and open spaces that do not cause a feeling of being overwhelmed. We also value brightness.
• A place to work or for the children: during the lockdown, we have seen how difficult it may be to work from home, especially if there are children. For this reason, among our priorities when purchasing a home, we also consider these scenarios, and we want larger rooms to study, work or play.
