Interesting in buying overseas properties surged throughout lockdown

According to new data, the UK’s interest in buying real estate abroad has skyrocketed in recent months.

Data collected during lockdown by leading real estate site Rightmove pointed to a significant increase in searches for private villas and apartments across Europe.

The trend would be a mix of both those looking for a second and those looking to move completely.

Spain was the province with the highest increase with 34% more searches than this time last year. France just lagged at 33%, while Portugal was at 26%

It is also said that, more specifically, searches for Ibiza have risen by a whopping 147%, which is largely attributed to the success of the Netflix series White Lines.

“Lockdown has given many people time to reassess their lives,” said Miles Shipside, owned by Righmove. “[This time] has promoted many house hunters to start buying seriously elsewhere in Europe. ”

“It is still early,” he continued, “but this is an indication that this has been a life-changing period for many who are reevaluating how and where they want to live.”

Home seekers can view overseas properties, including many online video tours, here on Rightmove.
