We have been a business in our community since 1984, and in our 36 years in business we have never experienced something like COVID-19. We listened attentively to our government throughout and continued to do what we could to keep momentum in our local property market during lockdown.
It was then announced, unexpectedly, on 13 May 2020 that estate agencies could re-open and home-movers could begin viewing properties. That was just two short weeks ago, but we have experienced a surge in activity and the future looks bright for East and West Sussex.
Our enquiry levels are now only a short way from where they were at the beginning of 2020, which is incredible considering what our country has experienced over the last few months.
Properties coming to the market are up across the sales and lettings side of our business, from West Worthing to Shoreham-by-Sea. A good influx of property to the market will keep up with demand will mean property prices remain steady; although if demand begins to outweigh supply, we could see further increases in property prices as we have over the past few years.
Despite adopting technology to conduct online viewings throughout lockdown, our figures show that buyers are definitely more comfortable viewing a property in person. There are still those, however, that are acting with caution and viewing online, so we will continue to offer this service.
The number of offers being made has risen nicely in line with the number of viewings that are actually taking place. That means people are confident in our local property market and have a real desire to move. This mindset of buyers and tenants is great for homeowners and landlords alike, as it means there are less unnecessary viewings taking place.
If you are considering moving home but would like to discuss the health and safety precautions in more depth, please contact us and we will talk through everything with you.
