In the famous words of Sir Captain Tom Moore, who has inspired us all in 2020, we have adopted the slogan “Tomorrow will be a good day” as our catchphrase for our future vision of the property market. There is no doubt that the majority of 2020 has been an “annus horribilis” the horrors of which will be reflected upon for many years to come.
In such testing conditions, the housing market did eventually flourish towards the summer and we experienced exceptional levels of demand within a very short period. The market is now cooling down and we look forward to a more sensible and realistic supply and demand in the early part of 2021.
The housing market will continue to provide an area of great focus, as so many people need a fundamental shelter and place to live, but it is interesting to see how the demands of the housing market have changed and altered so dramatically during this pandemic.
We have a great number of very exciting new home developments that are coming to the market in 2021, including the much-anticipated family homes at Sycamore Square, the iconic apartments at Regents Plaza & the exclusively for over 60’S apartments at Jesmond Assembly: all of which will provide a uniquely diverse range of luxury housing.
We would also like to express our very grateful thanks to the NHS personnel as well as many other key workers, who have rallied around the general public to support us in our day to day living. This includes essential shop workers, farmers, public transport, the police and fire services, as well as many others, for which we are extremely grateful… thank you!
In spite of the disruption brought to us all by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Sanderson Young team have demonstrated considerable resilience and flexibility and we have continued to support our local community throughout. Our focus remains on our head office on Gosforth High Street, where we have invested a significant amount of time to improve and update the building, so our staff and clients are as safe as possible.
We welcome our clients old and new in 2021 and look forward to a time of much improved security and safety for our customers, who undoubtedly want to ensure that their home move is carried out as efficiently as possible.
We wish all our clients a positive and happy New Year for 2021!
