New wave of movers enter the market

By Terry Holmes - 15 July 2020

Figures just released by Rightmove show that property searches last week were up 61% on the same period last year. Their survey also reveals that of those home seekers who had no plans to buy, sell or rent before lockdown, 28% are now planning to do so.

This ties in with the influx of enquiries, especially from London, at Beresfords branches where lockdown has exposed the limitations of their existing properties in terms of outside space, not just of the property itself but the area in general. There is also no doubt that the rapid transmission of Covid-19 in densely populated areas and the high increase in working from home has made people reassess their lifestyle.

With the easiest commute into the City of any of the Home Counties, one of the longest coastlines in the country and wonderful countryside, it is easy to see why Essex is so popular!
