2020 has been a huge challenge for us all. In business, whilst some have been able to adapt and see a huge success, others have had to close their doors. Whatever has happened, we can all agree that 2020 has certainly been different to what we expected.
The property industry has equally been different to what was expected. In the first Lockdown we saw the property market be put on hold. Over 82 Billion pounds worth of property transactions were put on hold, no one could sell or let their house, and no one could view a property. A few properties were rented with Tenants not viewing them before signing the contract but other than that Estate and Letting Agents were stuck.
Once the property market was open for business there was an incredible surge especially the sales market. However, what will happen over the next coming months is anyone’s guess.
Are prices now to high due to temporary demand? Will prices come crashing down when lenders will not agree to the purchase price? What mortgage products will be available? How long will the average sale take you now as there is such a back log? What will agents do come January 2021, when they are talking about the EPC guidelines for Rental Properties going from a E to a D? Will all your managed properties have an EICR in time for the deadline?
There are so many rules Agents have to adhere to nowadays, but this doesn’t even consider running a business, retaining/motivating/training good quality staff and ensuring the business remains in profit etc.
