A record number of offers were accepted on the housing market in June, according to research. After months of slow activity during the coronavirus lockdown, Knight Frank said it had recorded the best month for successful offers. The figure for last month was 46% higher than the previous record, in March this year before the lockdown. Knight Frank said this underscored “how the property market has picked up where it left off before the pandemic struck”. Meanwhile, a study of 2,000 adults by online estate agent Purplebricks has found that one in six house-hunters would make an offer after just a virtual property viewing – and one third are happy to make a judgement about a property after only a single digital tour.
