Announcement triggers Sellers to spring into action!

- Wed 24 Feb 2021

Perhaps it was the rare sight of sunshine or more likely the announcement that Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, made on Monday 22nd February with his plans for an easing of the lockdown that saw a surge of activity from potential sellers.

With many people anticipating the news from the PM, it appeared that having a tentative plan was enough to see home movers flock to the Bradleys website and request a market appraisal of their home. Whilst appointments being requested saw a significant rise, the online estimated values also rose, showing some people were still being curious at this stage.

Marketing Director at Bradleys Estate Agents commented "We were all keen to hear what the Prime Minister had to say, although we didn’t expect the immediate reaction that our website experienced, which certainly kept our team busy that were working until 10pm on Monday! The website traffic has been extraordinarily high over recent weeks, which we attributed to the lockdown situation and clearly many of our visitors are keen to take action and kick start their home moving plans. The demand from buyers has been outweighing the number of sellers of late and so this will be welcome news for people still seeking their next home. I advise they register their interest with the local office as properties have been selling before being advertised online!"

With many people still preparing their home in anticipation of moving the Bradleys website features a host of articles relating to this subject in the latest news section, which can help sellers focus on the key areas of their home.
