THOUSANDS OF PROPERTIES ADDED TO THE MARKET
THOUSANDS OF PROPERTIES ADDED TO THE MARKET

7 April 2020

Despite the coronavirus lockdown people are still placing their properties on the market.

Today’s Conveyancer, which is a news publication for conveyancing professionals, reports that close to 9,000 homes were listed last week.

It notes that this is 28% of the average of 32,000 new listings and that “this could still be viewed as a fairly high figure in the recent climate.”

The online publication also reports that there has been an increase in unoccupied property with new builds available on the market.

Today’s Conveyancer said that the types of properties coming to the market since the lockdown tend to be more affordable properties with those under £200,000 increasing their share of newly listed properties by 5.41 percent and those between £200,000 and £400,000 rising by 2.57 per cent.

While for many people moving to a new home may be on hold for the time being, at Phillips Solicitors incorporating Brain Chase Coles, our dedicated team continue to provide you with our conveyancing services remotely.

Therefore, when the coronavirus restrictions are removed we can ensure your transaction will be close to completion.
