Anthony Martin Estate Agents are keen to confirm to all their clients looking to buy, sell or rent a property that they are “Here to keep You Moving” as they remain open during this second lockdown.
Despite the government announcement that will enforce a national four-week lockdown from Thursday 5th November until Wednesday 2nd December, the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government confirmed that the housing market remains open.

In contrast to the previous lockdown, this is good news for estate agents and customers eager to take advantage of the stamp duty holiday and find a suitable home before the incentive ends on 31st March 2021.
Anthony Martin has been inundated with enquiries about their properties, in particular from London's residents looking to relocate to Kent since the first lockdown. A second wave and lockdown are likely to be a further incentive for more people to reassess their living situation and potentially move to an area that offers a larger home and more outdoor space.
Anthony Martin Estate Agents has been one of the few customer-facing industries that have been allowed to remain open because they were able to quickly adapt to the new Covid 19 measures and follow the guidance to help reduce the spread of the virus.
The Government guidance first issued in August stated that “The process of searching for and moving into a new home is different because property agents, conveyancers and other professionals have modified how they work to reduce the risk from COVID-19. These changes could include doing more online, such as offering virtual viewings; vacating your current property during viewings, and ensuring your property is thoroughly cleaned before someone else moves in”
Anthony Martin, owner of Anthony Martin Estate Agents said “We are glad to be able to stay open and help our customers find the properties that they are looking for during this second lockdown. The market is still very busy and we are taking every measure to ensure that we follow all the Covid 19 legislations, to keep everyone safe”
Anthony Martin has made a valuable investment in new technology, making it easy for prospective clients to navigate the property they have to offer and enquire with a simple tap of their phone. Their responsive social media channels and user-friendly, bespoke website make the property search process as simple and close to a real viewing as possible, which is so crucial during this second lockdown.
