Serious buyers and sellers have not let the national lockdown stop them from achieving their 2020 property goals.
For sellers, it has been and still is, an ideal time for home maintenance, garden upkeep and decluttering which greatly improves the aesthetic appeal of a property, says Andrew Golding, chief executive of the Pam Golding Property Group.
“As far as is possible, spruce up your house to ensure it is looking its best once the lockdown is over. By using this time to improve the presentation of your property, your home is beautifully ready to be seen by the buyer pool.”
Buyers should also take the time to narrow down their focus to particular areas and property types.
“Do not take a scattered approach to this… Deal with an area specialist and fine- tune your requirements so that the agent can guide you to the right property in the right location to suit your needs, including lifestyle and budget.”
