The press has been full of mixed messages about the property market, especially during and after both Brexit, the pandemic, and the unexpected ensuing property boom. Will the market rise, will it fall, is it a good or a bad time to move? There are so many variables, but one thing is sure - current buyer demand suggests that confidence levels remain high. So, once again, we find ourselves in need of stock to support this demand.
Such demand may well be the best indicator of the future of the market than anything else. People don’t usually buy unless they feel confident about the future and, although nobody knows what lies around the corner, there is a general mood of optimism in the air. Despite recent rises, interest rates are still incredibly low, and the banks are keen as keen as ever to lend their money.
So if you think that you might consider moving in the next year or two, it might be worth bringing that decision forward to take advantage of the strong demand we currently have. By selling for the highest price the market will currently pay you’d not only maximise your sale price, but you’d also put yourself in a strong buying position when you come to look for your next home. Worth a thought, as you stand to gain both as a buyer and as a seller!
A good starting point would be to ask us to provide you with an estimate of your property’s maximum expected price and saleability in the current market, which we’d be happy to do without charge. Please feel free to call us on 020 8467 8304 to arrange a convenient time for a marketing proposal meeting - no obligation, just straight-talking good advice with a smile.
