Published: 26/02/2021Boris Johnson has announced the roadmap out of what has been an incredibly difficult time for almost everyone.
No one had envisaged last March that the initial 3 week lockdown would last as long as long as it did, let alone that we would have 2 more!
But now, the weather is improving and the days are becoming longer. Spring is in the air, and so is the feel of optimism and renewed hope. All of which could combine to create a fantastic property market.
The property industry has in some ways been very lucky as we have been only been able to operate during these difficult times, we have been exceptionally busy at times.
As people have been forced to spend more time in their own homes and spend more time with their loved ones, it has made people reflect on what is important to them. This, combined with being forced to work from home has left many people needing to reconsider the suitability of their property against their needs.
Furthermore, the need and desire for a home office, some outdoor space or an area to home school has never been as it is now. Neither has there been less of a need to be close to a station and such a want to be remote and away from crowds of people.
Then, if the Government announce an extension to the stamp duty holiday, we have the perfect recipe for a fantastic property market boom. We have our fingers crossed!
