Susan Breen is the Property Manager at Harper Macleod's Estate Agency in Inverness. Susan has more than 30 years' experience of guiding people through the whole process of selling their homes. Here, she looks at what has been going on in the Inverness and Highlands marketplace as the country gets ready for the easing of lockdown restrictions.
Activity and trends
Properties in the Highlands continue to be in demand with an increase in potential buyers looking for a post-Covid lifestyle change. Due to the level of interest in Highland properties there has been an increase in closing dates for offers with properties achieving in excess of valuation.
Dealing with Covid
Measures have been put in place to minimise all risks to purchasers and sellers during this crisis and viewings are limited to two viewers from one household.
There is a lot of interest in the Highlands from down south. With the trend in working from home people no longer need to be in the city facing long and tiresome commutes to work. They can work from any location and we are fortunate in the Highlands to have Inverness Airport where you can catch an early morning flight to London and the late flight back home if need be.
Top tips for selling
If you're thinking about selling your home you should start to declutter and keep things neat and tidy. First impressions are important and a well-maintained garden is always pleasing on the eye.
