Property Market Update November 2019

November From the Agent’s Point of View

Commenting on the month’s property news and statistics, MOV8 R eal Estate’s Managing Director, Robert Carroll, stated:

“The property market in Scotland continues to shine, in stark contrast to the market in London, with the average selling price in Scotland being up by 1.6% compared to the same period last year.

“East Dunbartonshire has seen the largest increase with house prices rising by 4.7% to £223,564. Glasgow continues to top the leaderboard for the total number of recorded sales, with the City of Edinburgh not far behind.

“It appears that property sellers and buyers in Scotland have given up on waiting for Brexit before they make a move. We have seen the busiest start to a November in recent years in terms of property sellers putting their properties on the market. With demand high and prices continuing to rise, it’s a great time to be selling. All the more so given that MOV8 is offering an amazing 50% off our Estate Agency Fee until 14 November 2019!”

The Prime Minister at 8.30pm on Monday, 23 March 2020 announced unprecedented measures restricting movement of the UK population in order to combat the spread of the Coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic.

We are experiencing a huge surge of calls and email requests following this announcement, at a time when our capacity is more restricted than normal by sickness absence. Our capacity to answer calls will be restricted and more calls than normal will end in voicemail. Those voicemails will then be emailed to our central, team email accounts and allocated appropriately to the relevant staff members.

Viewing Requests

Anyone hoping to view a property will be unable to arrange a viewing in the coming three weeks. Reassuring our clients through this particularly difficult time has to be our top priority.

We will have to take the unprecedented step of not responding to viewing requests in the meantime. When restrictions are lifted on movement we would ask that, if you remain interested, you submit a fresh request.

Please Remain Patient - We Are in This Together

We respectfully ask that anyone first makes contact with us by email in the coming days.

We are all in this together. We ask that everyone tries to be kind to each other and to our staff throughout what are already the most stressful and anxious of times for everyone, let alone someone who is supposed to be moving home.

Best wishes and be safe,
MOV8 Real Estate
