Are there buyers still in market? 

Yes, buyer demand is in fact very high at this point in time, we have many buyers who are keen to book in Private Inspections as soon as possible. We anticipate this level of demand will stay strong throughout the remained of the year and beyond.


How has Coronavirus impacted the state of the market?

We are still seeing a significant volume of buyer activity in the market and have facilitated many transactions over the past few months.

We have adapted how we do business and we are still receiving a lot of enquiry and have many buyers who are keen to book in Private Inspections which is evidence to indicate that the market is still very much active.

We have seen how resilient the property market has been of recent times with pricing relatively stable and buyer enquiry still high.


Are properties still selling? 

Yes, properties are still selling. In fact, during this period we have seen the average campaign duration reduce from the traditional length of 4 weeks down to even as low as two-three weeks.

We anticipate property sales to increase further now that we are able to hold Private Inspections and introduce our pool of eager buyers to our latest listings.
