For a second year running Zoopla has conducted extensive surveys of hundreds of estate and letting agents, as well as thousands of property owners and renters across Britain.

We’ve captured peoples’ outlooks on a post-Brexit economy, what consumers want from agents, and identified opportunities in the ever-changing property market.

The findings have been written up into a comprehensive report, which you can download below.

Key topics covered in the survey:

 

Economic outlook

Consumer and property professionals’ view of the economy, personal finances, house prices and rentals
