"One report today suggested coffee shops, restaurants and estate agents should be among the first to reopen, as they are the businesses that would boost the economy most and pose a relatively low risk of spread. "

Estate agents to the rescue.... I'm sure everyone will be queuing round the block to make an appointment to view a property...

I can see why they think estate agents would pose a relatively low risk of spreading coronavirus, I doubt it could jump across such a wide species barrier.

Good, let them open. It will allow for quicker price discovery as insanely priced properties sit there getting zero interest. The fewer excuses they have for a falling market, the quicker and harder we'll fall.

Well said that man.

Let them open! When a business like that can operate but they have no clients... they just go broke much faster. I would never dare to visit an estate agent in a pandemic, they really suit the definition of superspreader.

who is going to sit in a coffee shop or restaurant even if the lock down is removed ? 

no vaccine lockdown continues regardless. 

Well... I passed the illness last month, so I may go to the coffee shops and restaurants. Also I am planning to go to the Estate Agents and ask if they have anything that has been discounted by 50% or more.

only because you knew you had it, trouble is if reinfection takes place the outcome maybe different again.

That’s why I wrote “may”. I am waiting to see what the studies about immunity say. And I still have my lungs a bit sore... (I was not hospitalised, but it was the worst “flu-like” illness I have ever suffered, far worse than flu).

I was thinking more along the liens that noone will be going into an EA office for a several  months.

From a H&S POV then yes, estate agents makes sense. Very few people in them, very small risk.

But who the hell is going to be buying a house if their place if work is closed and they don’t currently have a job?!

Go for it I say. Nothing to lose, lots to gain.

I think you'll be surprised. The second any of these places open they'll be absolutely hammered

Good luck with that plan

Cargo cult logic. Let the rain dance begin.

Well that pretty much is where Kirsty and Phil hang out when they're pumping house prices to the sound of middle of the road ambient electronic music.
