The property market in Dumfries and galloway has excelled in the last year, with more properties being sold and put up for rent than anywhere else in Scotland. David Mundell, the Dumfriesshire local MP stated there had been a 10.2% increase in house prices in the region pre-Covid-19 lockdown.
Covid-19 has had a significant impact on the way people live their lives; many have realised that city living is not what they want anymore; gardens and open space have become a must-have. During the pandemic, the rural surrounding of Dumfries & Galloway kept many safes from the virus, with considerably fewer cases than the cities. This has added to the rise of the local property market.
The virus may have caused a property market boom and prompted many to relocate, but it also meant viewing properties had to change in order to keep up. In response to this, many letting agents had to change their procedures and protocols to make sure the market kept going. The result has been the introduction of 3D tours. The benefits of these tours are massive. They’re flexible, allowing potential tenants and buyers to view the property however many times they wish, with 24 hours access and full 360-degree views. It is the closest thing you can get to being inside the property without actually being there.
