These are most certainly strange and unchartered times. Schools will cease today until further notice with exams cancelled (the first time in history – even through both World Wars, they went ahead), restaurants are closing their doors and our supermarkets have bare shelves. Here at Maddisons we are taking the threat of Covid-19 very seriously, and from Monday will be operating a largely skeleton staff in the shop, with most staff working from home. Rest assured though that behind the scenes, we will still be selling houses. Yesterday I agreed a sale, today I am negotiating an offer and next week I will launch 2 new houses to the market! We are still conducting viewings and Market Appraisals, and my excellent team are on hand to help anyone in need. If you want to hear more on my thoughts on what could happen from here, please listen to my latest VLOG. This weekend we will launch on our website our dedicated Covid-19 page with more information, and I will keep recording my Weekly Vlogs, updating you on the situation from a property market perspective as it evolves. In the meantime, to all the lovely residents of Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding villages, stay safe, stay healthy, strap yourself to the mast of the ship and wait for the storm to pass. Which it will.
