Without in any way diminishing the seriousness of coronavirus and the impact it is having on the health and wellbeing of so many people, it will pass. We know from previous pandemics and also from what is now happening in China that it will be brought under control and life will return, albeit to a new and different ‘normal’.

The devastating impact of the virus will have a lasting impact, and significantly alter our lives, including where and how we choose to live ‘After Coronavirus’.

The process of reappraisal has already started, with people reassessing what’s important to them: our homes, health, food, family, friends and community, schools, work, connectivity, the environment and travel will all be viewed differently.

Homes: People will reappraise where they want to live, and the idea of treating your house as a home rather than an investment will lead to them taking a longer-term view; we will see a return to the ‘forever home’ where you put down roots for you and your children. Those considering a second home will also place greater importance of a UK based property rather than one abroad where access to it cannot be assured, restricted by the whims of airlines and foreign governments.
