Coronavirus: UK Government lifts restrictions on moving home and viewings
After over seven weeks of complete lockdown estate agents are now allowed, once again, to conduct viewings and market valuations in England only. Whilst this news is a relief to our business, it is important to stay alert and implement procedure to ensure the safety of our staff and customers. For that reason our office in Longtown will remain closed to the public and virtual viewings will still be implemented where possible to ensure protective measures. Physical viewings are slowly being picked up again as of next week.
According to the BBC, it is estimated that there are over 450,000 buyers and renters who’s plans were put on hold due to covid-19. The next few weeks are going to be a busy period in both the sales and lettings department. Are we ready for it? Absolutely!
We believe we could see a rise in the market after this weeks announcement, especially if people have managed to save money or if couples have quarrelled over the coronavirus period.
That being said, we are crying for new properties in both markets so if you would like a free market valuation then please contact us today. We will happily visit your property, wear protective gear and give you an accurate figure.
