Bunk welcomes back the housing market

The housing market is open again, well in England at least. The government is hoping to boost the economy by lifting restrictions on letting agents, inventory clerks and removal firms.

Requirements for rented accommodation will almost certainly have changed during the lockdown period, with greater emphasis on outside space, quality WiFi and a spare room to enable home working.

Landlords are now able to visit their empty properties to prepare for letting, take photographs and carry out viewings whilst adhering to social distancing measures.

Bunk has welcomed the news as the first steps towards recovery for the lettings sector. There has been a large pent up demand from tenants during the lockdown, this will result in a surge of traffic on the Rightmove and Zoopla portals – so it’s important to have good quality images to get your property seen ahead of the competition.

“We set out to build a revolutionary lettings platform in a traditional marketplace that hadn’t changed for years, literally overnight the agency model has had to try and reinvent itself, but we have a well established National lettings service incorporating virtual viewings and digital signatures”

“Utilising the latest technology to overcome the challenges of the market, we have completed tenancies from advertising to move-in in less than 3 days during the peak of COVID-19 – with no human contact” said Tom Woollard, Co-founder and CEO.

Backed by Nationwide Building Society, Bunk is quickly becoming one of the online success stories of 2020.

Here at Bunk we are continuing to support our landlords and tenants, if you have any question or concerns you can contact our lettings experts who will be able to help. And please remember, adhere to social distancing and government guidelines.
