Guide-lines greenlight to reassurance

By Property Sales Office Manager, Abigail Barker MNAEA

At Balfours we are providing the greenlight and reassurance to vendors and buyers involved in appraisals and viewings. We have put in place comprehensive protocol to ensure that we all keep safe during yet another flare up of this horrid pandemic.

Measures are from the obvious, that households must sign up to be free from displaying symptoms of Covid-19, or isolation. Viewings will be limited to a maximum of six people from two households. Where possible we are grateful to clients who are willing and able to oversee viewings themselves.

Alternatively Balfours staff are happy to conduct viewings, should the vendors prefer to opt out. Our staff are regularly undertaking lateral flow tests to protect both our clients and ourselves.

We are advising: That facemasks should be worn by all involved. When possible longer conversations should be conducted outside; that all items likely to be touched are cleaned prior to viewings with antibacterial cleaner. Better still, where practical, doors are open, and lights switched on. Plus hand sanitiser and antibacterial cleaner at the ready.

The good news is there will be some fresh property choice coming to market in 2022. Despite the uncertainty of Covid there are ‘New Year resolution sellers’ who are seeking to take advantage of the traditional Boxing Day bounce in buyer demand.

Balfours full Covid Safe guidelines are available. Wishing you a Happy and Healthy New Year.
