Where there is more demand there is increased competition, which means sale prices rise. On this basis I believe now is a great time for people thinking about selling their houses to take the plunge and get a valuation.
We are seeing a lot of this demand coming from first time buyers who are being supported by the government through the Help-to-Buy scheme.
Additionally, buyers are now able to access a very competitive mortgage market, with historically low interest rates and pre-recession loan-to-value ratios of around 95%. This along with the lack of property supply makes now a great time for sellers.
It’s important for vendors to ensure their chosen agent markets properties using professional photographs, online portals and websites so their home is shown in the best possible light. haart customers have access to the latest online and social media marketing tools, plus traditional print advertising and ‘open house events’ to boost buyer interest.
