With the lockdown in full swing, where does this leave the property market?

Many sellers and buyers will be will be wondering whether they are still able to continue with their house sale and for those looking to bring their property to the market, can we still find you a prospective buyer?  The answer is YES!

On Sunday 1st November the housing minister confirmed the property market will still go ahead in full swing.

However it is important that you choose an agent like Hair & Son who has adapted their way of working, since the pandemic began, to ensure they are complying with the new COVID 19 regulations and ensuring their customers and colleagues are safe.

The housing market is experiencing a ‘mini boom’ and this looks set to continue, despite the current lockdown. In fact it has been predicted the UK housing market will remain buoyant with average house prices expected to increase 4% this year before stabilising in 2021.

So now, if any is the time to sell! By doing this you can also take advantage of the stamp duty holiday, which is set to end March 2021, which could save you up to £15,000.00!
