Is now the right time to buy?

With the new year fast approaching, people start thinking about taking steps to improve their lives - one of those steps is looking for their next home. Over the Christmas period online property searches have seen some of their highest numbers of visitors, with the peak being the first week of January.


If you’ve decided that now is the time to find your next home, we can help. Whether you are staying local or moving further afield we can help you pin point where you want to live. Are you wanting to downsize? Do you need more room? Whatever your reason for wanting to move we can help you find the right home for you.


But is now the right time to buy?

If you are regularly checking the online property portals you’ll see that houses have been selling during the pandemic and in most cases faster than a typical year. I think we will all agree 2020 has not been a typical year! So the answer is yes.


We as an estate agent have adapted the way we do things to keep both our customers and employees safe. We can now offer virtual viewings for the majority of our properties.


If you’ve found a property you like and want to take a closer look, no problem. All we ask is that you wear gloves and face coverings for viewings and we do the same. We have restricted viewing time to 15 minutes.


If the property you’re viewing is unoccupied, we go in first, open all doors, then step out of the property whilst you go in to view.


If the property is occupied we ask that the current occupant is not in the property for the viewing (where possible) and we maintain social distancing when in the property. 


Other than the viewing all other aspects of you sale are dealt with remotely.  


Ready to find your next home? Give us a call on 01793 611841 (Swindon) or 01793 751044 (Cricklade) and we’ll help you get started.
