No Stopping Moving and Migration

04/11/2020

Moving house is continuing apace despite lockdown. That is the message from one of Shropshire’s leading agents.

 

Eager to Migrate

Head of sales at Balfours, Alistair Hilton, says the calls continue to come in as vendors and buyers recognise that your home really is your castle this winter and beyond.  He explains: “Clients tell us that once they have made the decision to move, they really do want to progress and don’t want to put it off any longer.

“This particularly applies to those who are eager to migrate to Shropshire from outside the county. It also hasn’t gone unrecognised that our sparser population is a real plus point to house hunters who are seeking a location central to the country.

Alistair continues: “During this difficult time, we would like to assure everyone that the property market in England remains open, as per current government guidance advising that we are still able to market properties.”

As a result Balfours continue to accept viewings which are able to take place, along with property market reviews, surveys and removals. Each stage is practiced in line with current government guidance. For further information, see https://www.gov.uk/guidance/government-advice-on-home-moving-during-the-coronavirus-covid-19-outbreak .
