Barbers Post Lockdown Mini Property Boom!

Posted on Friday, June 19, 2020


Since returning to full operations after lockdown in mid-May, Barbers Market Drayton and Newport offices have agreed over £5 million worth of sales in less than a month, the majority of which remarkably were at or close to the asking prices.

The property market is incredibly buoyant, and we have received acceptable offers on a wide range of properties from under £50,000 all the way up to near the £1,000,000 mark. Our business continuity plans throughout lockdown and our well-resourced staffing levels have resulted in a large number of these sales being agreed to readily proceedable cash buyers with no chain due to our Sales Teams working very hard to find those ‘hot buyers’ for our clients.

We have agreed twice as many sales as any other agent in TF9 and TF10 (according to Rightmove statistics as at 19/6/20) – so the hard work is paying off! Certainly we are already seeing a surge of interest from buyers looking to relocate to the countryside and market towns as they rethink their lives and deciding that our Towns and surrounding villages are a fabulous place to settle for both home and work.

Mark Bielby, our Newport office Manager, says that demand for our area has seen a record number of enquiries both online and from calls to our offices which shows that we are extremely popular with out of area buyers.


Our Managers and Valuers are extremely busy, bringing plenty of new properties on the market to help with the pent-up demand resulting from lockdown as well as plenty of new seller and new buyer enquiries. Gail Furnival, from our Market Drayton office, says they would be more than happy to come and visit you for a free, no obligation market appraisal of your property – observing all the required safety precautions of course. We have remained extremely mindful of the ongoing concerns and we update our website regularly to keep all our clients reassured.
