Covid-19 has changed the way people work and live, we hope that people are weathering the storm, staying safe and adapting to the new ‘normal’ When David and I opened our Estate Agency business in Bramhope at the end of 2018, who would have thought a little over twelve months on when Covid-19 resulted in a lockdown, a ‘short term’ business pause, followed thankfully by just over a month of our office being open again, we are now working in the new ‘normal’ way too. I am using this morning (Trudy is back in the office for the first time which is great for us) to reflect on how things have changed in the Estate Agency world and how our business was thankfully future-proofed from the start to allow for a new normal way of working. People sell houses, enabled by the best technology and modern sales techniques was our mantra right from the start – this is serving us well in the following ways:-
Home momentum has been building rapidly in the two weeks since the housing market properly re-opened – this had led to a number of records being achieved on Rightmove. Both the number of visits and the amount of time people are spending on Rightmove has achieved new highs. On Wednesday May 27th visits exceeded 6 million in a day for the first time, which is up by 18% on Wednesday May 29th last year. The busiest day for time spent on Rightmove was Saturday May 23rd with over 47 million minutes spent collectively. In the new survey, Rightmove has found a wave of new buyers now entering the market since before lockdown – of those people who had no plans to move earlier in the year, over a quarter of them (28%) are now saying they are planning to move.

Leeds residents are being urged to play their part in the 75th anniversary of VE Day from home. Friday May 8th marks 75 years since Victory in Europe when the Second World War came to an end and the allied forces celebrated victory and a return to peace time in Europe – millions of people took to the streets to celebrate with family and friends. This year the government moved the May Day Bank Holiday to VE day to allow the nation to remember the sacrifices of so many made during the Second World War. Due to the current war against Covid-19, in line with government guidance, all VE Day events across the UK have been cancelled, but residents across Leeds are encouraged to mark the 75th anniversary of VE day in a different way, from the comfort of their homes.

I have been watching with interest that some Estate Agents have started to use 3D virtual tours out of necessity due to the Covid-19 virus. At David Phillip Estate Agents though we have been using 3D virtual tours as part of the customer experience since we launched our business – not out of necessity but because we think it enhances the process for both the Buyer and the seller.

The threat of Coronavirus is something that all companies should have plans in place for, both in terms of Customer Expectations as well as the welfare of Employees. At David Phillip Estate Agents we have plans for both, and today we are putting our plans into action as if it were the real thing. When we created our business at the end of 2018, we invested in all the best ‘cloud’ technology to ensure a 24/7 business, running from anywhere (although we do have a small office in Bramhope, North Leeds). So today, we are all working remotely with the following in place:-
