First off, happy Good Friday to all our readers. Here’s to a great, if still slightly different, long Easter bank holiday weekend filled with chocolate and hot cross buns and the like.
If you are looking for something to do in your downtime, we would love you to fill out our two-minute state of the property nation survey, which closes at 7pm on Easter Monday (April 5).
We’ve received an excellent response so far but are looking to get as many agents and property people on board to improve the final dataset and give us an excellent insight into the industry we all work in.
As a reminder, the survey asks some of the biggest questions currently facing agency. Will RoPA improve things? Are virtual viewings here to stay? Will the number of high street agent offices decline in the coming years? Are Facebook or Amazon set fair to enter the marketplace at long last, as has long been threatened?
Will Boomin, which finally officially launched today, shake up the agency world or will Rightmove remain dominant by 2030?
We also pose questions on trade body membership and whether agents will one day act for both sellers and buyers in a transaction, as happens in many other countries elsewhere.
So, whether you’re a branch owner, a junior negotiator, a board director, a self-employed agent or a franchisee, we want to hear from you.
You can complete the simple two-minute survey here.
Many thanks to everyone who participates and have a great, relaxing break!
