Property post lockdown – Residential Property

Lots of different coloured doors

Are you buying a property or are you buying a home?

How has the property market been affected by the lockdown?  That is the question many are asking but, in truth, does anybody really know the answer?  There are a range of opinions on the subject based on educated guesses and predictions.  In times of economic uncertainty, the property market tends to be viewed as a barometer of the health of the economy.

At Thursfields we have always understood that buying a property is about more than property.  It is about a home.  Property comes in all shapes and sizes.  There are apartments, terraced houses, detached houses, bungalows and barn conversions to name a few.  There are many different styles of property, but they all have one thing in common – they are all a home.

Post lockdown a home is perhaps more important than ever to lots of people.  Over recent months we have all spent more time at home than ever before.  What we felt was important in a home just a few months ago may well have changed.  For example, how useful is the modern, spacious kitchen if the internet reception is poor and won’t allow you to work from home?  Modern open plan living can be great, but what about a separate part of the home where you can work from undisturbed?  Looking after a garden may once have been regarded as a chore for some.  Is that still true these days?  Ask anyone stuck in a high-rise apartment for the last few months how important a garden is.

More than ever, buying a property is about ensuring that the property is the right home for you.  At Thursfields we have a highly experienced residential conveyancing team offering a personal and tailored service.  Last year we helped over 4,000 people move home.  While there are many lawyers who will represent you in a property transaction, at Thursfields we represent you in the purchase of your home.

If you are thinking about moving home, get in touch with our team on 0345 20 73 72 8 to discuss your requirements and experience the difference that we can make or visit www.thursfields.co.uk/conveyancing-calculator for an instant quote.
