Following the Government announcement yesterday relating to Estate Agency we have resumed business as usual whilst respecting the guidelines relating to the safety of our clients, prospective purchasers and of course ourselves.

During the “lockdown” period we have remained available and in communication with prospective purchasers, clients and solicitors involved in transactions. We are hoping for a relatively smooth transition as business returns to normal however during our first day back we have definitely experienced pent-up demand from buyers, this is manifesting itself in requests to view and a daily increase in traffic visiting our website. Despite negative reporting of the economic effects the COVID-19 situation is having, we remain confident that the housing market will prove to be resilient particularly in Cornwall where the market has been driven for a long time by aspirational and lifestyle purchasers.
