Bloor Homes South West sees surges in sales despite UK lockdown

Bloor Homes South West has seen a surge in activity, indicating that buyer confidence remains.

With lockdown restrictions now easing, Bloor Homes recently reopened its sales offices and developments to prospective buyers across the South West and has since seen a surge in activity, indicating that buyer confidence remains.

Sara Parker, Bloor Homes’ South West Regional Sales Director, said: “During lockdown our sales teams continued to work with customers who were looking to move. However, since we have reopened our sales offices, we have seen activity return to pre COVID-19 levels at all our South West developments.  

“Throughout the lockdown period we saw our sales continue to rise. General calls have increased for a third week running in June, from 380 to 421. This is a big improvement in comparison to this time last year, with 265 calls. This is demonstrating that there is certainly a confidence in the new homes market.”

During the lockdown period, the sales teams offered virtual viewings and whilst buyers are now able to physically visit the sales offices and showhomes, this new remote method continues to remain popular.  

Sara Parker continues, “It has been great to see appointments being snapped up when we re-opened. We have had a surge of first-time buyers across all of our sites, and we are so excited to welcome our buyers into their new homes.

“Buyers who have made the decision to move are keen to progress and with interest rates so low and lenders offering an increasing range of products, now is actually a good time to consider buying a new home. This could also be due to people being confined to their homes during the lockdown period and feeling the need for a change.”

Bloor Homes’ sales offices are now open, and the sales teams are offering 1-2-1 appointments with every national guideline safety measure in place to ensure the safety and well-being of customers and staff.  Virtual appointments are also still available to book with via our dedicated appointment page or by calling your chosen development. Find your nearest one here.
