“Property market bounces back with 137% sales surge since estate agents reopened in May and 24,341 homes sold last week – while buyers look to ‘trade up life in London for the regions.”
These are just some of the headlines that we are seeing as we emerge from the Covid – 19 lockdown in the UK.
The average price of sales over the last couple of weeks is 6% higher than in June 2019 according to Zoopla. Experts added that the sale of higher value homes have rebounded strongly in the recent weeks as buyers look to change their lifestyles.
Over 175,000 missing sellers that couldn’t come to market from 24th March to 12th May, but they’ve sprung into action with record number of owners asking for valuations and daily new listings now up on last year.
40,000 new sales agreed since market re-opened on 13th May, releasing flood of pent-up demand
Number of people phoning and emailing estate agents hits new daily record, 40% above the level seen in early March
At Veritas Homes we are also experiencing a huge surge in activity and at the moment the buyers that we have registered are far outweighing the properties that we have available meaning that there will be competition for your property should you list it on the market now which will no doubt push up the price of your home.
Remember that we are no sale no fee so even if you want to test the market during this mini boom to try and get your dream price it will not cost you a penny.
