We really hope you are all keeping well, both physically and mentally following the new national lockdown announcement.
At this point many of you understand what the latest guidance and restrictions mean to you and your family, but what does it mean to the property market? The guidance has changed since the first lockdown in March 2020, the government has confirmed that the property market should remain open for business.
We are pleased that all ongoing sales can progress in the usual manner and our team of sales specialists will continue to work hard on our buyers and sellers behalf to ensure properties complete in a timely and stress free manner.
Property appraisals and viewings can also continue to take place - all under our strict Covid secure procedures.
We can also continue to put new properties on the market for sale and we are already seeing there is an appetite from sellers to do so. There are still more buyers than available property which suggests that now is still a very good time to market your home for sale.
The safety of our staff and all our clients is our priority so we will help and advise you every step of the way. All our offices continue to operate, so please do not hesitate to contact us.
We wish you all the very best for 2021.
- David Arnold, Managing Director Arnold & Phillips
