Woodward Estate Agents are still agreeing sales during Lockdown! Last week we negotiated the sale of this detached home on Harrow on the Hill, much to the delight of both vendor and purchaser. https://www.propertysearch.woodward.co.uk/property-search~action=detail,pid=2102
As we continue to work remotely and with success, we thought some advice on moving home during Covid-19 measures would be helpful. Below we have summarised the Key Points made in new government advice on this subject, the full text of which can be found using this Link. Our government have already agreed with Banks that mortgage offers should be extended “where delay to completions takes place to prioritise safety” and they are working with Conveyancers to develop a standard legal process for moving completion dates.
Woodward Key Points for Clients
We continue to provide the fullest service possible whilst working remotely. Our knowledge and expertise is available Monday to Friday. We welcome the opportunity to stay connected and discuss your present and future plans.
For Sellers, we offer;
Video Market Appraisals – Please contact us to arrange an appointment for a Free Valuation. We can meet you on Facetime , Skype or Microsoft Teams and you can show us around with a smartphone whilst we chat. We hope to meet in this way, just until we can do so in person.
Support for Home Movers – We continue to closely supervise your move and liaise with all parties involved. As much of our work does not require face-to-face contact, with a little flexibility on all sides we can still get you moved this year!
For Buyers, we suggest;
Virtual Viewings - With our great photography, detailed descriptions and floorplans you can learn a lot about a property from your home through our website. Add the use of Google Street View and Google Earth to understand a property’s location and surroundings and you have virtually viewed it already! Also type the postcode of a property that interests you in to Google, click on the resulting map and after a second or two a small yellow person appears at the bottom right of your screen. Click on the person , drag them to the red marker and let go. Voila, you will be outside or at least close to the property… Do call us if you need the exact street number and to discuss any particular questions you may have.
Register your Interest – We have a system in place to register your interest in a property. When viewings resume in a few weeks’ time we will prioritise contacting you to book an appointment. We are always available to discuss your plans and provide information about our area and how to move home. We anticipate great demand later in the year, so it pays to be prepared!
