We’re delighted that restrictions on house moves in Scotland will be relaxed from 29th June and buyers, sellers and renters can, once again, progress their moving plans.

We are awaiting specific guidelines from the Scottish Government, but we hope to be able to resume physical viewings, fully launch new properties to the market and help people to carry out their moving plans (whilst following government guidance to protect our staff and the public) from 29th June.

Launching Virtual Tours

We are investing in new technology to help keep our staff and clients safe.  Going forward, virtual viewings will play an essential role towards reducing physical traffic through a home.  We will be launching immersive 3D virtual tours so that buyers can experience a home without physically visiting the property.  The technology simulates moving around a property and enables potential purchasers to get a real feel for a property, whilst also being able to gain digital measurements of any part.  With most people still mainly at home, this will minimise footfall and disturbance to daily life, whilst increasing the chances of finding a buyer and ensuring our experienced sales staff only bring the buyers who are serious about a property through the door.

Surge in Demand

During lockdown, we have been busy registering interest from a huge number of people wanting to view properties and providing advice and guidance to sellers and landlords eager to get their properties on the market.  With home-mover momentum building and restrictions easing, we anticipate a surge in activity which will really help to kickstart the housing market. 

Early signs from the English property market are encouraging.  Following the re-opening of the market on 13th May, Rightmove recorded its 10 busiest ever days in May and June in terms of traffic and the amount of time people spent browsing the property portal.  The release of pent-up spring demand and a new wave of buyers entering the market (fuelled by people unhappy with their existing home and looking for features such as more space, better home working environments and improved outdoor space) is placing upwards pressure on price.  According to Rightmove, the average asking price of property coming to market in England is up by 1.9%, compared to March before the housing market was put on hold.  These trends are supported by data from Zoopla which has recorded a 54% increase in demand since the start of March, with demand for higher value homes increasing at a higher rate as homeowners look at trading up for more space or moving to a better location.

Joy Simpson (March 2020) – “The marketing of the property was excellent.”Joy Simpson (March 2020) – “The marketing of the property was excellent.”Estate Agency Client - 2 Bed Flat, Perth

We chose PPP to sell our property as they were recommended through a friend.

The marketing of the property was excellent. Good photos and video.

As the property was empty we were happy for PPP to conduct the viewings and this was handled well.

We were always given advance notice of a viewing followed by an update on the feedback from the viewer.

Gary and Chloe were brilliant and always available when we needed advice.

The negotiation of the sale was handled quickly and professionally.

Although it took a bit longer than we thought to sell the property we were very happy with our experience as a whole.

We would recommend Premier Properties as they are very knowledgeable of the local market and kept us informed at all times. Staff are professional, friendly and nothing is a problem to them.
