Property Market Q1 2021: Covid19 Vaccine Rollout An Important Role

While the current environment of once-again eased restrictions offers room for improvement in Q2 2021, the property market is expected to put in a mixed performance for the duration of the year while pandemic-related uncertainties persist.

With the availability and rolling out of the COVID-19 vaccine throughout the country, the National Property Information Centre expects the property market to experience a boost in the second half of 2021.
