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.

Supply slows for the UK property market

The latest from the Agency Express Property Activity Index has shown a slowdown in properties coming on to the market, with new listings ‘For Sale’ sitting at -11.2%. While a seasonal adjustment during October is expected the Property Activity Index shows the decline in this month’s figures to be greater than those recorded 12 months previous, where new listings sat at -4.3%.

Across the rest of the UK the trend continued. Only four of the twelve regions recorded by the Property Activity Index reported increases in properties ‘Sold’ and none recorded increases in new listings ‘For Sale’. The West Midlands was this months top performing region with figures for properties ‘Sold’ sitting at 13% while new listings ‘For Sale’ recorded a marginal decline, sitting -4.9%.

The largest declines recorded this month’s were by the North East, where new listing ‘For Sale’ fell to sit at -31.2%, a record low for the region.

Commenting on the latest index results, Stephen Watson, Managing Director of Agency Express said:

During October we traditionally observe a seasonal slowdown, however this month’s Property Activity Index has shown one consistent trend across the UK and that is a slowdown in supply.  As we head in to the last few months of the year it is unlikely that we will see any major increases.
