Should We Sell During Covid-19 Lockdown?

Should We Sell During Covid-19 Lockdown?

By Lisa Fletcher | 12-10-20

Current conditions may not be ideal for selling, but the team at Peake have proven it is not only possible to sell during lockdown, but we can continue to achieve outstanding results for our clients. 

If you are considering selling, however, have your doubts about the current market, take a minute to read below. We hear from our sellers Julie and Kevin who put their home in the hands of Sarah and the Peake team in the hopes of selling their much loved home during Stage 3 Lockdown. Here’s how their journey unfolded..

“Our house went on the market on the first day of Stage 3 restrictions, however we sold our house very quickly, signing a Contract of Sale in exactly one week, which was fantastic! We were presented with 3 revised offers, all within one week of our house being placed on market.

 The whole process of selling was made so much easier with the guidance and reassurance from Sarah from start to finish.  The day our house was due to go on the market was the first day of stage 3 restrictions where open house inspections were no longer allowed. I panicked and rang Sarah as I thought we would be best to wait until after the 6 week lockdown period, to get more interest. However Sarah reassured me that they still sold plenty of houses in the previous lockdown and that inspections would be able to proceed by appointment only which allows the agents to weed out the genuine buyers.  We are so glad that we took Sarah’s advice and proceeded with our sale as planned. 

We definitely think we were given the correct advice given the quick sale and fantastic result that we received.”

The whole team at Peake were very easy to deal with. A very friendly, down to earth team of people that were always readily available to speak with and assist with our questions.

We would definitely recommend sellers to continue moving forward in these covid restrictions, given the very quick sale and fantastic result that we received. We also think it was a much easier way to sell, being by appointment thereby only getting the genuine buyers coming through.

We highly recommend selling with Peake having received a very quick result that also exceeded our expectations. We are very happy we chose Peake as they made the whole sale process all round, so easy from the very start receiving initial information to the very end when sold and all finalised.”

The entire team at Peake Real Estate work alongside each other to achieve incredible results. We are dedicated to making your real estate journey as effortless and enjoyable as possible. 

We are thrilled to be scheduling appointments once again - with the return of private inspections and appraisals, the delayed Spring housing market will soon be back in full bloom.
