Homeward Bound!

Published: 24/08/2023 By Alex Maile

I’ll keep it short and sweet this month, as it is peak holiday season and I know most of you are probably still on the beach. You should make the most of it, though, because there is not much more of the summer left. In only a week or two we will be in September and those lovely, long languid days will begin to shorten as we head towards autumn and the start of another school year.

In the property market, we are already gearing up for what is one of our busier periods, and that’s because people often return from the beach refreshed and raring to find their ‘dream homes’ and then move in before Christmas. And, this time around, buyers will be further buoyed by the news that the constant rises in inflation and mortgages may at last be coming to an end. There’s still a chance there will be one more 0.25% rise to the base rate in September, but mortgage costs have already started to ease off.

It means, if you have a house or a flat that you are thinking of selling, now would be a good time to give us a call. That way, we can get the ball rolling in time for what is one of the shorter sales windows and you’ll have plenty of time to make any tweaks and adjustments that we might recommend to ensure you get your maximum possible price.

Well, that’s enough for now, I hope you all enjoy what’s left of the summer and I will be back again in September.
