2 MIN READProperty Market Q1 2021: COVID-19 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. 
Furthermore, consumer sentiment will likely improve in tandem with an increased vaccination rate as the year progresses.
