Growth in Strand despite economic slump

Category Expert Insight

During the current economic climate as well as the uncertainty typical to a post-election period; various industries are experiencing difficult times as we've recently seen the unemployment rate just creep above the 26% margin.

It would be an easy assumption that the property market is experiencing difficult times across the board as well.

Indeed, over the period of the last twelve months the property market saw conditions reminiscent of the 2008 recession that was compounded by the introduction of the CPA that hampered the average approval of bonds around that time.

Yet, during the first quarter of 2019 Seeff Strand saw a positive growth and although there could be various reasons for this upswing in sales and even rentals; we like to focus on the factors within our sphere of influence.

In the property industry, especially during difficult times, there are a few factors that one can focus on in order to stimulate a positive experience for clients regardless of market conditions.

A real estate agent can focus on the primary link between the client and themselves; which is
communication. Constantly updating buyers of available properties and -sellers of the progress in marketing their property creates a feeling of security.

Having an established and wide ranging marketing reach increases the general scope of buyers
reached and properties advertised.

Lastly, having competent and well trained staff & agents in place to make sure that all facets of one's workability as an agency is adequately serviced.

It is always our constant endeavour to maintain, beyond anything else two things; servicing our
clients so their property needs are met and maintaining our reputation as the market leader.
