Is Community now the new Location?

There was a time when buying a home was all about location, location, location, but today the new mantra seems to be community, community, community. 

More people are looking for security and comfort in their everyday lives and a real sense of belonging.

Since the pandemic hit the country last March, figures show the increase in local support has grown substantially. With many adults doing more voluntary work, checking on their neighbours, and helping the elderly by doing their shopping, there has been a real surge in community spirit.

Community now ranks high on the list of priorities for homebuyers choosing where to buy, with more people researching what the community has to offer before making a decision.
