Location, Location, Location: it’s no coincidence the TV show seized on that title because the importance of a property’s position is key for the buyer. But will the concept of ‘location’ have to be redefined by the changes now afoot on the High Street?
Recent days have shown how the concept is shifting shape.
Last week’s press release from Lloyds Bank included research - well, you could call it that - suggesting a home within walking distance of a leading supermarket could have £21,500 added to its value; even more if the supermarket was a Waitrose, Aldi or Lidl.
It struck me how old-fashioned that claim was and that press release was.
I don’t just mean that estate agents came out with a ‘Waitrose effect’ almost a decade ago (that research, too, was pretty flakey as some of those agents admit). No - more important is the fact that the Lloyds press release had little relationship to today’s changing world.
Peoples’ shopping habits have altered (more ‘small’ shop visits rather than a ‘big’ weekly expedition, for example, plus of course the delivery of food by growing numbers of stores) and as a result many High Street names are disappearing or contracting.
What might this mean to agents, the housing market, patterns of demand and even property details in the future?

Brexit uncertainty, higher taxation and more stringent mortgage lending conditions are among the toughest challenges currently facing property investors, including buy-to-let landlords, according to new research.
A survey, undertaken by auction firm John Pye Property, sought the views of those at the heart of the UK’s property scene, including investors, landlords, owner occupiers and insolvency practitioners.
Some 38% of respondents highlighted uncertainty around Brexit as the biggest challenge affecting the property sector, with just over a quarter – 24% - pointing to higher taxation. Stricter lending criteria from banks were also a concern for 17% of those surveyed.
But despite these concerns, the majority of responses painted a positive picture of the current market.
More than half – 56% - of investors surveyed said that they felt that there are more appealing property investment opportunities available now compared to five years ago.
In terms of future plans, the research suggests that a significant number of investors plan to diversify their portfolios and focus more on securing long-term tenancies for their properties rather than pushing up yields.
