Despite the difficult times we are facing we are still seeing very healthy levels of activity. This supports the recent Rightmove report which has recorded its busiest ever start to a new year, with visits to the site up 30% on the same time period in 2020.
Rightmove’s Director of Property Data Tim Bannister said: “The housing market has been allowed to stay open during these latest lockdowns and agents have already spent months working in a covid-secure way and creating a number of property videos, so buyers and renters starting out on their search this year will find that, alongside the safe viewing protocols, more agents are offering virtual viewings to help buyers and renters better shortlist the properties they want to go and see.”
Commenting on the start to the year, Frosts Director Daniel Kirk said: ‘We have worked very hard adapting to a new way of working and ensuring all our processes are Covid safe. We will move 112% more tenants into properties this year than last year and the hard work of our staff in ensuring this is done inline with guidelines is something I am very proud of’.
We have found that the tenant market is buoyant and tenants are keen to find properties that meet their changing needs.
