Peter Illingworth of Peter Illingworth Estate Agents reports on a property phenomenon playing out now in a market near you.
The lockdown bounce has already begun. We don’t know how long it will be for, but it is undoubtedly with us now.
Within a day of the government announcement that the home buying and renting process could re-start, the telephone calls and emails began - and we have not stopped since.
People who, for whatever reason, have decided in lockdown to make significant life changes have now joined those who were already on that path in January and February. In the new year we had a Brexit bounce. Now it seems we have a double bounce.
We have already spoken to a number of buyers keen to escape urban environments or in need of a lovely garden. Then there are those whose workplace will change from office to home and they’re looking for properties with room for a dedicated workspace. We have heard too from people who have re-evaluated their relationship with their home and now want something different from it.
Our commitment to those who have suffered during this period with ill-health or other issues is total. Our years of experience and in-depth local knowledge are already aiding those who need the support and commitment of sympathetic but practical property professionals. Those who are in difficulty with property matters are not alone in this. We are here to help. We know how to help.
We are taking all the precautions recommended to keep clients, viewers and our colleagues safe through the tail of this pandemic. If you need to make a move safely and wisely please call us at Peter Illingworth on 01751 431107
