Post lockdown property market bouncing back on the west coast of Scotland

The lockdown bounce has already begun. We don’t know how long it will last, but it is undoubtedly with us now.

With preparations underway for the safe reopening of the housing market in Scotland, and the UK government’s announcement that the home buying and renting process can re-start in England, Bell Ingram’s Oban team have been flat out dealing with telephone calls and email enquiries about properties on the west coast of Scotland, the west Highlands and the islands.

People who, for whatever reason, have decided in lockdown to make significant life changes have now joined those who were already on that path in January and February. In the new year we had a Brexit bounce. Now it seems we have a double bounce!

I have already spoken to dozens of buyers keen to escape urban environments or in need of a lovely garden. Then there are those whose workplace will change from office to home and they are looking for properties with room for a dedicated workspace. I have heard too from people who have re-evaluated their relationship with their home and now want something different from it.

At Bell Ingram, our commitment to those who have suffered during this period with ill-health or other issues is total. Our years of experience and in-depth local knowledge are already aiding those who need the support and commitment of sympathetic but practical property professionals. Those who are in difficulty with property matters are not alone in this. We are here to help. We know how to help.

Bell Ingram are taking all the precautions recommended to keep clients, viewers and our colleagues safe through this pandemic.
