On 1 October 2020, The Guild hosted an online power session for business owners looking to make informed decisions regarding the direction of their business in 2021. This year has been challenging for many estate and lettings agencies throughout the UK, and the owners of those businesses have needed to act quickly and decisively to ensure their businesses were able to make it through the tough months. Since the market reopened in May, the industry has experienced a mini-boom in activity but what can we expect to happen as we move into next year and beyond?
While business in the industry is currently booming, business owners need to prepare and have a plan in place for 2021. We put together a panel of experts who provided business owners insight into the current market and how we can expect it to change in the months ahead. This invaluable information helped business owners plan in advance, be prepared, and adapt so that they can thrive in the future, rather than just survive.
The session ran for two hours, providing answers such as whether the shift in demand will be sustained until the end of the year, and what the end of the furlough scheme and the mortgage holiday might mean for the market.
The Guild is extending an invitation to prospective Guild Members to watch highlights from the session to gain valuable information from the panel of experts, and learn more about the ethos and support available from The Guild.
