Is Covid-19 altering our opinion about property?

We are now settling into the new ‘normal’, and it is interesting to see that our teams have become much busier with phone and email enquiries over the past few weeks.

Engaging with buyers from the West Country and other parts of the UK, it feels as if many people have realised that their lives have been busy but the recent enforced change has given them the space to think and reflect about what is important, what they want their lives to be like in the future and where they want to live in the future.

Part of this reflection has incorporated a review of their current living environment. Is their home the right size (perhaps too small or unnecessarily large), likewise the garden/outside space and are they currently living in their preferred location.  

These potential buyers are now considering moving, particularly those who currently live in the home counties and London, and they are registering with Stags to head West to this glorious part of the country.

The opportunity to move to the West Country has been further enhanced by the shift in working patterns to remote working, meaning people might no longer need to live close to their usual office location, and are therefore free to look wider afield for their perfect home.

The Stags teams are increasingly fielding such enquiries from new buyers far and wide. If you think you might have a property that could appeal to one of these new buyers, please contact your local Stags office who will happily assist in your deliberations.
