Key Quotes:

 

“The pandemic has certainly made people rethink, you know, their jobs, employment, what they're prioritizing, and property. Their home is a really big central part of that with that… And it led to, you know, all these record levels of transactions in many markets, Europe, North America, even parts of Asia.” - Liam Bailey

 

“If you are a homeowner, and you're concerned about the value of your home, I think there are reasons why you should be positive about the longer-term outcome because there are a number of things still in the market that are supporting prices, the levels they've reached. So, for example, supply is not an issue right now.” - Liam Bailey
