COVID Guidelines

Following the UK lockdown announcement we can confirm we are still operating.

To remain COVID safe have implemented the following guidelines for our operators:

Social distancing measures observed at all times
Hand sanitisers to be carried by all operators and used regularly
No knocking on vendors doors/interacting with vendors unless absolutely necessary
No visiting of branches
Face coverings/masks to be worn where possible
One person per van, unless those people live in the same household

Please ensure your customers are aware that we will be enforcing strict social distancing to protect all involved. We politely request they do not approach our operators, and boards are left in easily accessible locations for collection when required.

Thank you to all our clients for their continued patience during this time.

UK property market reveals further promising increases

Following last month’s return to market, the latest data from the Agency Express Property Activity Index has revealed further promising increases in activity.

National month on month figures for new listings ‘For Sale’ sat at 36.3% while properties ‘Sold’ rose to a robust 58.8%. Looking back over the Property Activity Index’s historical records we can see that this month’s increase in figures are greater than those recorded in the same period of 2019 and 2018.

The upward trend continued with all 12 regions recorded by the Property Activity Index reporting increases in both new listings ‘For Sale’ and properties ‘Sold’.

Scotland sat at the top of this month’s leader board; with COVID-19 measures easing in the region, figures for new listings ‘For Sale’ bounced back at 119.3%. A buoyant market was also reported in the North East with figures for properties ‘Sold’ sitting at 90%.

Other hotspots across the UK included:

  • Wales 57.4%
  • North East 51.1%
  • East Anglia 45.7%
  • London 42.3%
  • Central England 39.3%

Commenting on the Property Activity Index results, Ben Brookes, Managing Director of Agency Express said:

This month the UK property market has really started to ramp up. The levels of activity have been better than our expectations and instructions continue to increase daily. In light of the recent stamp duty holiday announcement, we are also confident that we will see a surge of new listings and are hoping that the market will remain stimulated throughout August when typically it slows.
