Save On Your Conveyancing Fees with an Online Quote
Since emerging from lockdown the UK property market has been booming with house prices 5.2% higher in August than in August of last year. The backlog of movers between March and June came back to the market along with new pent up demand for bigger and more rural homes. Lockdown has demonstrated that customers are now looking for more space, more bedrooms and outdoor space.
In additional the Stamp Duty holiday has strengthened the property market and resulted in an influx of new properties to the market and new buyers. On average a home is on the market 27 days which has reduced from 39 in the same period last year.
With rising prices and soaring demand it is crucial to be on the ball when you are ready to move. Sellers need to be able to demonstrate to eager and impatient buyers that they can move swiftly and buyers similarly need to show they are organised and ready to go. In such a competitive market it’s essential to be more attractive than your competition. Whether that be having your mortgage agreed in principle, having no chain and able to move quickly or being a cash buyer. Whatever your strength you need to work to it and use it in your negotiations.
