How will the UK property sector look post COVID?
I think we can all agree we are getting tired of Lockdown, COVID-19 and all things related!. It is still very much the main focal point in everything we do and i think this will be the case for a while to come.
For the property market, sales and lettings there has been some major changes and also going forward i think these changes will stay.
The use of the traditional meeting at a property at a time to suit everyone has always proven to be a thorn in the side, especially if the property has a current tenant within. We have seen at Letting Cloud from chatting with our Letting Agent members that video calls at the property have dramatically risen and also the use of mobile zoom calls or such like on vacant properties has risen with potential tenants asking to see specific areas of the property. Our members have stated that they can see this feature staying post COVID and also adding to it to make the process quicker and easier.
Now that the market is back open for both sales and lettings it will be interesting to see how that pans out.
