How Decking Will Help With The 2021 Property Market
How Decking Will Help With The 2021 Housing Boom
One of the last things we expected to see amidst the lockdown misery of 2020 was somewhat of a housing boom, but the pent-up frustration of people stuck at home seemed to unleash a widespread desire for many to seek more space, lifestyle improvements and bigger homes. The lull of the first lockdown was followed by good activity over the summer when the property market is traditionally quiet.
The Government’s furlough scheme helped people financially, and the Stamp Duty holiday – in place until March 2021 – gave some people the encouragement they needed to make the move.
A fast-moving property market in Leeds
Northern Deckline operate across the Yorkshire region and we have seen evidence of the property boom and people also making home improvements to add value to their homes and their lifestyles. Leeds has been one of the fastest-moving property markets in the UK for a number of years now. Triggered by the quality of life, with a thriving city rich in culture, history, retail and job opportunities, Leeds is ripe for another boom with Premier League football back in the city and Channel Four also making the move in 2021.
So the UK property market performed much better in 2020 than some experts may have forecasted, and the unexpected activity during the Coronavirus pandemic is expected to continue by many, at least partly, into 2021. People are still making plans and being ambitious, and part of that is making improvements at home which add value to their property in readiness to sell.
It is well established that decking is one of the most cost-effective home improvement projects there is. This means that the cost of installing it is outweighed by the value it can put on your property.
Decking can add value to your property
Decking is a dependable feature that you know many families are going to want in a new home. It is versatile, attractive and practical, and a recent install will save a new buyer a job and provide a readymade outdoor space. And even if you have no imminent plans to move, installing decking is good for improving your home.
At Northern Deckline we see a lot of properties in a lot of areas around Yorkshire and Lancashire, and a consistent theme is that people are investing in a decking install because it brings added value to both their current lifestyles and often the value of their home.
Following the challenges of 2020, it is predicted that the UK economy will start to recover in 2021, and the property market will continue to be lively and progressive.
