The market has been, to put it mildly, quite incredible in the past 4-6 months. We currently have no properties available from our stock of just under 300 we manage on behalf of our clients.

The tactic of virtual viewings – which were deemed essential as per government covid guidelines – has meant that in lots of cases we have had people taking the property having only seen a walk though due to a fear of missing out. As an agency, we like to ensure that applicants have physically viewed properties to avoid issues but in some cases, we have literally had people clamouring to take the properties.

It has genuinely got to the point that properties are having, on some occasions, to be physically taken off of the market within 20 minutes of them being placed as we have already secured applicants – long may this continue!
