The Property Market: Among the First to Reopen Following UK Lockdown


The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the day-to-day lives of everyone in the UK, and with the UK now on lockdown for another three weeks, it’s understandable that many are worried about property and investing in general during the uncertainty.

However, estate agents could be among the first businesses to reopen when the government relaxes social distancing restrictions. Earmarked as one of the industries that could quickly help offset some of the hit to the economy, the property market is integral to supporting the UK post-COVID-19.

According to plans laid out by Lord Gadhia and GlaxoSmithKline chairman Sir Jonathan Symonds, Britain will have to ‘learn to live with COVID’ until a vaccine is widely available.

The report states:

“The initial focus for reopening the economy should be on sectors that have the greatest multiplier effects with minimum risks – such as coffee shops and restaurants which support agriculture.

“The property market is another that has wide multiplier effects. We need to avoid a stop-start economy which would sap public morale and damage business confidence yet further.”
