Coronavirus update for people selling their home

Thursday 02 Apr 2020

The Government have sought to ease the process for all involved by:- 

  • Agreeing with banks that mortgage offers should be extended where delay to completion takes place in order to prioritise safety
  • Working with conveyancers to develop a standard legal process for moving completion dates.

If your home is not yet on the market, but you are intending to move, there should be no visitors to your home, however a reputable Estate agent will be able to provide you with advice about the local property market and things that you need to get in order as part of the sales process.

if your home is already on the market, you should not be inviting visitors into your home, so talk to your agent about 3D virtual tours – this means that potential buyers can view from the  comfort and safety of their own home  24/7. Take a look at the property on the Sycamores in Bramhope – the 3D virtual tour allows you to do a viewing just as you would do in person 

Because people are only allowed to leave their home for essential reasons, you may be looking to move but aren’t sure about the local area – local area videos filmed in the summer show you the local areas but also the communities which will become active again after the Coronavirus has lifted

As well as the area and house, potential buyers will want to see the size and layout of the garden – site maps enable buyers to see all aspects of the home, the garden, the drive, the summerhouse – not just the house.  

The buying and selling process can continue, although it may take a little longer – all Estate Agents should be working with their clients to ensure the property sale moves forward but should be mindful to those showing symptoms

Conveyancers should continue to support the sale and make every effort to help clients through to completion

Removal companies should honour existing commitments, and the government advice is that work carried out in people’s homes can continue, provided the tradesperson is well and shows no symptoms of Covid- 19

When we set up our business at the end of 2018, our cloud based technology means that everything can be worked remotely without having any impact on the customer experience and the progress of the sale whilst on lockdown.

So if you are thinking about selling your home, choose an agent that uses 3D virtual tours, area videos, site maps and all the property portals – call David Phillip Estate Agents for advice and to book a free market appraisal once Lockdown has been lifted t: 01134 676 400, a: 86, Leeds Road, Bramhope.
