As a consequence of this present lockdown, there has been a reduction in homes coming onto the market, although demand for purchasers remains high. However, we’re heading towards Spring, which traditionally sees an upturn in numbers and an increase of properties becoming available.
With the prospect of brighter times ahead, it’s important to start planning should you be thinking of moving in 2021.
So how will I chose my agent?
Many people start their search online, looking at individual sites. Also, take a look at Google or Trustpilot to get an independent review. But really, the best way is to talk to them and decide which one you feel most comfortable with. Generally, ask two to three agents for their ideas on the value of your home. These valuations can be done virtually or with home visits, depending on what suits you.
Don’t necessarily go for the highest value as it may be unrealistic and just a play by the agent to get your home on the market with them.
It’s also very important to make your home stand out from similar properties already on the market. Standard photography doesn’t cut it.
To this end, I'm pleased to announce our Spring promotion; we will market your home with our fantastic professional photography and detailed floorplans completely free of charge. You will also get 50% off our amazing 3D virtual reality tours, which are a massive asset to show off your home right now when in-person viewings are limited.
