Happy New Year from all of us at Perry Bishop and Chambers.
A new year is often an opportunity for a new start and, as expected, since the beginning of January we have already received a steady build-up of enquiries from applicants looking to make 2020 the year they move.
We have already seen an increase in traffic to property websites so far in January 2020. The number of viewings we are conducting and offers we are negotiating would indicate we have more optimism in the housing market following the decisive general election result, which should lead to more stability. There is pent up activity from buyers and sellers who had put their plans on hold over the last three years and current activity shows that this is beginning to come through.
Current market conditions are helping First Time Buyers who are competing with fewer investors and also have the advantage of historically low interest rates, allowing them to fix their mortgage rate. This then allows second steppers the opportunity to upsize into a home more suitable for their growing families. Mortgage lenders are facing stiff competition and are consequently offering attractive rates and products.
We put our energy into giving you the best advice for the market conditions, whatever they may be, and tailor that to your personal needs. We will spend time understanding the reason for your move, what lies behind your decision, and then ascertaining what is most important to you – the price you achieve, or the timescales for moving. We can then tailor a marketing strategy to suit your circumstances, which includes our unique 11 Step Plan to Sell for the Best Price.
Our skilled negotiators are trained to get you the very best price they can for your home, but they don’t stop there. They can also negotiate on your behalf to secure the property you aspire to move to, helping you to successfully move on to the next chapter of your lives.
Don’t wait for Easter, or the Summer, or for Brexit. If you are thinking of selling, or know someone who is, ask them to get in touch for a free, without obligation consultation and advice.
We are here to help and hope we will be able to assist in 2020.
