As estate agents, we are playing a vital role in ensuring the property market is back up and running as safely as possible for staff and clients, and we at Ezmuve are taking it very seriously. We have safety measures in place for all appointments, including the doorstep delivery of PPE packages for our clients, and minimising in-person contact as much as we can. By doing this, we are helping to build our economy, whilst still posing an extremely minimal risk of spreading the virus!
The property market sprung back in to action this week – we have been inundated with enquiries from people just bursting to make their move and we would not have it any other way! Why have estate agents been able to reopen you may ask? We are one of the first business sectors that have been allowed back to work, purely to help offset the hit to the economy caused by the pesky Coronavirus!
Well – the property market is amongst one of the few sectors that presents the greatest “multiplier” effect, whilst presenting less risk of spreading the virus. Just think, one single house sale alone will usually involve solicitors, surveyors, mortgage lenders, removal firms – not to mention the knock-on effect after completion to construction workers and retail industries. According to leading property portal Zoopla, over £80-billion worth of house sales had to be put on hold during lockdown! Whilst the housing market was put on pause, it also meant that the above-mentioned industries had no option but to pause too.
