The latest data from Zoopla shows ‘Parking’ as the number one searched keyword for those looking to rent. It was the most searched keyword for all regions apart from North East England, where ‘garage’ was most popular.

Whilst ‘Furnished’ was the fourth most popular term across the UK, it took the number one spot in Scotland. Finding a pet friendly property was tenants’ third biggest concern, up from fifth place last year.

Annabel Dixon, spokesperson for Zoopla, says: “Parking and garages were a consistent requirement for tenants across the nation.

“While this may not be the most exciting feature of a home, our research clearly shows that landlords can make their properties much more attractive by creating or enhancing existing parking.”
