A YouGov online survey of over 2,000 adults recently commissioned by TheHouseShop.com, the property marketplace, found ‘Pub’ scoring a 23% rating among respondents when asked which services would need to be within walking distance of their new home.
‘Supermarkets’ came top at 49% above ‘Post Office’ at 26% and ‘Train/Underground Station’ at 25%. Some way down this list, ‘off-licence’ registered a 10% score. And some 25% of respondents stated that they’d not need anything in particular within walking distance of their property.
The results revealed that by-and-large, despite the rise of online alternatives, home-hunters still demand physical essentials within walking distance of their new home.
