The team at Saunders & Lingard would like to keep you up to date in regards to the property market, the current situation and what the expectations and predications are for the final weeks of 2020.
It is fair to say that this year has proved rather challenging, however, it has also really been a total surprise to the property market. Since ‘re-opening' after the first lockdown in mid-May we have experienced an exceptional number of enquires, viewings and sales with high levels of demand across most price bands. South Devon has proved very popular with out of area buyers now choosing to relocate to or back to the area to enjoy all the wonderful amenities which we are so proud of having, be it be the stunning beaches and coves, the ragged coastline or the open spaces of Dartmoor, and we don't see this changing.
There has naturally been a slight drop off during the November lockdown, however we continue to operate under strict Covid-19 guidelines and restrictions and we are now gearing up for the ‘big push' that we are expecting to happen in December after the lockdown has eased as there is still a pent up demand from buyers from both in and outside the area who have sensibly decided not to view during lockdown.
What does this mean for you and the marketing of your property? Simply put, the next month or so could prove very busy and this is a great opportunity to really take advantage and make the most of the high levels of demand, especially for properties just like yours! The great news is that we continue to be ready to deal with the changes in the property market and have developed many new ways of interacting with sellers and buyers, from the ability to offer virtual valuations and viewings, Zoom calls and video tours, whilst making the most of our state of the art technology and online marketing, all aimed at being able to proactively market your property and achieving a sale in these ‘interesting' times.
We are also excited to be able to offer a number of Vendor Incentives, especially our Key Worker discount scheme to say a little ‘Thank You' to the amazing people who have continued to operate though out the lockdowns. In addition, we offer Friends and Family incentive vouchers and a £150 off scheme (please feel free to contact us to discuss any of these and see which ones applies to you. T&C's apply). And finally, we have teamed up with the wonderful people at The Coffee Company who have very kindly donated an incredible hamper full of goodies for you to enjoy. Every new instruction in Teignbridge by the end of 2020 will be automatically entered into our prize draw to win the hamper…….and there may well be some other prizes being added in December!
If you have any questions or would like to discuss the marketing of your home, please do not hesitate in contacting me on 01626 240229, and in the meantime, please stay safe.
