“Should I, Shouldn’t I?”

Added on 03 October 2018

The press is currently full of mixed messages about the property market, especially in view of the various issues surrounding Brexit. Will the market rise, will it fall, is it a good or a bad time to move? Fortunately, we have remained extremely busy, and 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 any other indicator. People don’t buy unless they feel confident about the future. At this point in time we are in the transitional stage between a Brexit decision having been made, and actually leaving the EU. The real effects of leaving may not actually be felt for some years. Nevertheless, nobody knows what lies around the corner. There could be some volatility in store, with potential knock-on consequences to confidence levels. Fortunately interest rates are still incredibly low, despite any nominal rises.

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 sales price, but you’d also put yourself in a strong buying position when you come to look for your next home. Worth a thought!

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 03330 430090. Or visit our online valuation tool at www.thorntons-property.co.uk
