With Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s latest announcement that first-time buyers can secure their new home with a 5% deposit to create ‘generation buy’ is now the right time for you to be thinking of moving or selling in the Durham area?
There is no right answer to this statement that will suit everyone. It all depends on everyone’s individual circumstances and what you are wanting in a new home that your current home can’t provide.
As the world has drastically changed, so have our priorities. People are finding themselves separated from loved ones; spare rooms are becoming offices and the employment market is becoming slim.
Are you a Durham-city-dweller wanting to swap your central apartment for something more residential with a spacious garden? Or a couple wanting to move in together and drawn to the Seaham coast? Maybe your job prospects have got you seeking the Durham City location with more employment opportunities?
Whatever your situation or need, our experienced Elvet team is with you every step of the way to help you either sell your home, or find your new home. We’ve adapted our processes to offer multiple services online with our award-winning support.
Our Virtual Experience for Buyers
We understand people’s hesitations at the moment, but here at Elvet, we have created a safe and efficient process for buyers and sellers..
Buyers can take detailed virtual 360° virtual tours of local properties on our website and take advantage of the interactive services with our Durham-based team. So you can browse and discuss potential properties with our team from the safety and comfort of your home.
Our Online Portal For Sellers
For sellers, we give you access to an online portal where you can track exactly how your property is performing on the market including how many phone calls we have received about your property and how many viewings we have booked. You can also compare your property’s performance to others on the market.
It’s a convenient way of keeping track of how our team is working to sell your property with full transparency without having to leave your home or pick up the phone!
That’s just one part of our 4 Step Selling Process.
Whenever you’re ready to start the moving process, we’re here for you.
