Moving forward as lockdown softens

June 24th 2020

Following Prime Minister, Boris Johnson’s announcement yesterday (Tuesday 23rd June), the UK and many businesses are preparing for the next phase of the relaxation of lockdown.


So, as the UK prepares to move forward from the monumental lockdown of CoVid-19, how can you prepare to move forward?
With the property market fully up-and-running, now is the time to act. If you were planning on putting your property on the market, but had to hold-fire, now is the time to take the jump.
With an eager, ready and waiting buyer’s market, now is the time to arrange your valuation with Mclarens, your Dorking and Surrey based estate agent.


What are buyers looking for?

Gardens and communal places.
Property Portals, such as Rightmove and Zoopla have reported a spike in enquiries in homes with a garden or a relaxing communal area, spurred on by the outcome of the lockdown.
With a garden or community space providing a safe-haven during our unprecedented times, it has fast become a buyers’ need, creeping its way to the top of a home-buyer’s wish list.


Investment opportunities.
One bed flats, family homes, commuter homes, investors are seeking it all. Lock-down gave many the opportunity to plan for the future, including investing in property and building their property portfolio.


Property outside of London.
As more London-based businesses open-up to employees working from home for the long-term, buyers are seeking a home outside of the capital to put down their roots. Surrey is ideally placed to provide a fantastic home in the idyllic countryside, whilst being a small commute from the UK’s capital.
