Since property viewings restarted, we’ve been crazily busy. There’s so much pent-up demand in the market that I’m doing twice as many valuations as in ‘normal’ times.
Many people decided during lockdown that they want outside space or a lifestyle change, so there are a lot of flats coming onto the market. But every other type of property is also selling well, and today I did valuations in Monifieth and Broughty Ferry, as well as in the city centre.
All of us in the team are now getting used to the new-style valuations and viewings. For example, we wear masks and gloves when we visit a property, and ask clients to leave internal doors open to minimise contact.
All that felt strange at first, but now seems almost normal. And, most of all, it’s great to be back. There’s a buzz in the market, and it feels really good.
