According to a local article in The Star, Redbrik Estate Agency have given us all an insight into life into the housing market during 2020. As one of the most popular local companies performing house removals Sheffield, we’ve had to make our own changes to the way we work, but were unsure if prospective homeowners would be able to secure a move during the pandemic. Luckily, they have!
From virtual viewings to 3D walkthrough technology to Zoom consultations, estate agencies have had to adapt to the pandemic to keep the property market moving. In fact, Mark Ross, Redbrik’s co-founder and Managing Director, had said the interest in houses had gone into overdrive.
Why the sudden interest in moving?
With the rise in working from home, increased disposable income and changing attitudes towards work, there has been a rise in prospective buyers from first-time to cash buyers. Whilst there were rumours that the housing market would see a fall in property prices, there has actually been an increase due to high demand.
Redbrik has also seen a heightened interest from London residents looking to move up North, with numerous larger companies resorting to permanent working from home measures and flexibility. Londoners can keep their job, whilst benefiting from the beauty and countryside of South Yorkshire!
It seems that the pandemic has accelerated modern processes and a new way of thinking by around 10 years, and these processes are here to stay.
