Property Market is Back in Business

Michaela Jupp

H&H Land & Estates asks are we due a rural property resurgence due to Covid-19? 

Those in the property market feared a negative impact on the industry due to the pause as a result of the pandemic.  However, H&H Land & Estates, says that it is already beginning to see more doors opening for the housing market, due in no small part to Covid-19.  

The lockdown period has revealed many different things for many different people, the ability to adapt to a new ‘norm’ being one.  The business has seen real evidence that on the whole, most people able to work from home have performed the task admirably, and have had time to pause for thought on what they want for the future, as Michaela Jupp of H&H Land & Estates explains:

 “We believe demand for quality rural property in small towns and village locations will be sought after more than ever.   People are considering the space they live in and will almost certainly be seeking greater contact to the countryside.  Aptly connected rural locations, perfect for those wishing to work from home part of the week, but have good access to the office will be in particular demand. 

“The recent spell of good weather has added to this a spark of interest, with us all out channelling our inner Alan Titchmarsh.  So, a pleasant outside space and garden is sure to drive value as well as access to decent broadband service.  Nobody likes a disjointed Zoom meeting!”

Covering the beautiful expanse of northern England, including the Lake District, Durham Dales, Yorkshire Dales and Northumberland coast line to name check just a few, H&H Land & Estates is perfectly placed to match these important criteria to potential new owners.  The area is filled with its own specific rich rural heritage and history, also offering excellent value in comparative terms to the bigger cities.

As the market picks up, the H&H Land & Estates team will be focussed on helping buyers achieve their dreams of a rural property and assisting sellers secure the best price.  If you are looking for that lock-down inspired change to life, the office is very much open to supporting clients remotely at this time.  Michaela can be contacted on 07808 766623 or alternatively individual office phone numbers are listed below:

  • Over the past few months, I’ve been dealing with Jenna to sort out some issues with a tenant that left and to find a new tenant for my property. You’ve been the managing agent for my flat since 2005 and the service that Jenna has given me recently has been nothing short of superb. She has promptly answered questions, given me reassurance and generally been a godsend over a fairly stressful time. You have a tremendous asset in Jenna.

  • From my first dealings with the valuer who came out to look at my property and telephone dealings with the staff in the office, I have had nothing but excellent service and I would like to thank them all for that. My biggest thanks must go to Gillian, who has helped me all the way from start to finish, she has gone beyond my expectations and helped me in every way possible, her enthusiasm and humour along with her professional service has made my experience of selling my property a very pleasant experience and for that I am very grateful.

  • Nothing but praise for the service offered by Andrew and Kathy at H&H King, Penrith. They really put themselves out, not only to ensure that we sold our house but also to find us a house that suited our requirements in the right area. We have no doubts that they are worthy of a 5* rating. N&T

  • Thank you so much [Mike] for all your help with the Mid-Tier Application. I couldn't have possibly done it myself and it was such a relief to be able to hand it over to you.

  • We are very pleased with the way you dealt with the Scroggs Wood programme. There seemed to be a number of difficulties, but you overcame all these problems and got the timber extracted in good time, and sold it well - we were delighted with the cheques we received. So we wish to thank you warmly for all your efforts, your expertise and your thoroughly professional approach.
