Online estate agency, House Network, has reported a record number of enquiries for houses with swimming pools.

The report follows on from Britain experiencing one of the longest heat waves, questioning whether the country is going to continue to follow these extreme temperatures for the longer term.

House Network has reported 90% of their enquiries over the past two weeks requesting a property with outdoor space, with many customers specifically stating a swimming pool as priority.

House Network reported no properties with swimming pools coming onto the market between the months of November 2007 and March 2018. The network saw a dramatic turn around between March and June, with 80% of the properties with a swimming pool that have come to market already being sold in record time.

Zoopla recently reported 7 properties with swimming pools in the UK for sale under £500,000. This confirms that properties with this added luxury feature are very limited and are set to become increasingly popular if the country sees longer summer months.
