Property Market Bounces Back With Resilience

A review of the property market since lockdown restrictions were lifted on 15th May indicate a buoyant property market, and demand is strong. 

The property market has bounced back with resilience since the market resumed after lockdown on 15th May 2020. Rightmove headline figures attest that demand and buyer confidence is strong, with no sign of a significant price dip, the online portal suggests that on average buyers are agreeing to pay 97.7% of asking prices, with 40,000 new sales agreed since the housing market reopened.  

Despite mortgage lending being more stringent for first time buyers, in general they are making up a healthy percentage of viewers. Essential staff and key workers are taking advantage of generous discounts, and attractive incentives being offered, particularly by house builders for new-build homes. 

It has been an extremely busy month at Property Ladder Group, valuation enquiries have been surging in at a phenomenal rate, viewing levels certainly concur that the housing market has sprung back into action and buyer confidence is robust. The team were delighted that our first property placed to market after the return of lockdown, sold within 24 hours of being listed. This trend is continuing week on week. 

We value our relationships with estate agents, we take time to review the market at valuation stage and aim to work with 3 proactive selling agents, throughout the process until a sale is achieved. Our formula is tried and tested, we market with 3 local estate agents, thus ensuring optimal exposure to allow for an increased level of viewings, which convert to offers, allowing PLG to negotiate the highest possible sale price.
