Published: 01/08/2019 By Bianca KeatingDespite having a new PM, we promise we’re not going to mention either ‘B’ word this month – Boris or Brexit. It’s just too hot for that kind of thing. Far better to pull-up a deckchair, have a nice cold glass of something and let your thoughts drift to the beach. We can worry about what it all means later.
Mind you, while everyone else is enjoying the sunshine, those of us who work in the property business will still be busy finding homes for people, especially in the rental sector.
We know most people are under the impression the housing market cools off during the hotter months but just remember this - September is only around 6 weeks away! There’s no mad rush to finish your drink, but if you’re thinking of selling any time soon, now is as good a time as any to start the ball rolling.
Preparing a property for sale can take longer than you might think and you want to hit the ground running on September 1st not several weeks later. And, for any landlords, there’s more urgency as we are now moving into one of the busiest times of the year as students try to finalise their digs for the new academic year and families do their best to ensure they are firmly in the right catchment area for their chosen schools. And, with the rental market doing well at the moment, it’s a good time to catch that ‘wave’.
So, give us a call and we can give you an idea of what the value of your property is in the current market, be it for rent or for sale, and we can tell you what needs to be done and would love to help!
