Did you know that most online searches are for information?
For example, did you realise that there are more than 1,900 searches per month in the UK for the term ‘moving house with cats’?
Or that 2,900 searches a month are for ‘van for moving’ and another 1,300 searches specifically for ‘luton 3.5 tonne van.’
I chat with Ebs Turner from Prop Media about content for estate agents and my property pet peeves!
At last, there has been some good news for the estate agency industry, with Chancellor Rishi Sunak announcing a Stamp Duty holiday on residential purchases of £500,000 or less in England and Northern Ireland until March 2021.
So, being in the property industry, how do you feel about this?
Over the bank holiday weekend, my husband received news that his employer has extended its staff furlough scheme until the 31st of July. He works in the financial sector for an estate agency, and so we guess that they will keep him in this furloughed position until mortgage momentum starts gathering again.
Following this news, I was reflecting on the large number of people who are still furloughed or are working from home on full or reduced hours. And this got me thinking! This is a massive opportunity for people to reflect on their lifestyles properly during this time.
These past weeks are likely to have been the most testing times you have ever faced as an estate agent.
I hope you’re doing ok and can focus on the fact that this is a once in a lifetime event (hopefully) and you are not alone. Every other estate agent is experiencing the devastating consequences of coronavirus too and quite frankly, once you get through this, you will feel like you can conquer the world!
