Allan's June Market Update
Published: 06/06/2020 By Allan Fuller
The weather seems to have decided to be as confused as the general situation of the country. Extremely hot to now very could and strong winds. This though palls into insignificance compared to Covid-19 which is a worldwide disaster that even Hollywood could not have dreamt up.
Our office has got back to some sort of normality whilst complying with all the regulations, desks moved to maintain safe distancing, street door locked with only prior appointments available at the moment, and all the other measures that we are now used to.
Despite this as Cathy explains in her article how have very successfully been creating new lettings. Sales inevitably are taking more time to get into gear but we are pleased with the new deals that we have already been able to agree. The sales that we had created before lockdown that then became moribund have now got back into action and are again proceeding.
Things have changed, some of our team are still home working, and we really cannot say when we will all be office bound, but the system is working very well. Modern communications have made this possible and there will inevitably a vast number of people who’s jobs with become either totally, or partially home based. That could have an effect on property with a greater demand for properties designed for home working, or people needing an extra room to work in rather than just the kitchen table.
Hopefully a new normal will soon emerge and with it a better work life balance.
