Estate Agency in Scotland set to Re-Open

We are back. Our exceptional estate agency is now preparing for the opening of the property market on Monday 29th June. We are looking forward to help get Renfrewshire moving again.  However, we will, of course, be working to minimise the risk to our buyers and sellers.

Since 23rd March 2020, people in Scotland have been on lockdown having been told to stay at home to help stem the spread of Covid-19. With good Spring weather, outdoor space was seen as a premium.  According to Rightmove, the priorities of buyers have changed as a result of lockdown with a 2 bedroom house now being the most sought after property.      

It will be interesting to see whether buyers will prioritise outdoor space given that many people will be acclimatising to a new form of flexible working where they will predominantly work from home and only occasionally commute to the office.  This may result in buyers accepting a longer commute and casting their net far and wide when searching for properties. 

With England seeing a surge in the property market after restrictions were eased there in mid-May, it is hoped that Scotland will follow suit.We have already spoken to hundreds of buyers this week who have been patiently waiting to get moving.  It is clear there is a great deal of pent up demand which will help get the market off to a quick start.

We will of course be taking the appropriate precautions. We would ask that if you are coming to view a property you follow these simple rules:

  • Maintain social distancing at 2 metres
  • No more than 2 people per viewing
  • Avoid contact with hard surfaces and door handles wherever possible

We have reminded sellers to keep all internal doors open and to respect distancing. Our staff will be wearing face masks and gloves when conducting valuations or viewings. When showing empty properties we will try to wait outside.

Whether you require Estate Agents in Renfrew, Estate Agents in Paisley, Estate Agents in Glasgow, or across Renfrewshire we are on hand to provide you with the expert advice needed to make the selling process as stress free as possible.    

We offer a free valuation. Contact us now and a member of our team will be in touch.
