We promise we’re not going to mention the ‘B’ word this month. Really, we do. Like everyone else, we are thoroughly fed up with the whole thing, it’s just so difficult to divorce it all from the property market. However, we’re already in July and for the vast majority, the beach beckons and holiday time is around the corner. Time to pull-up a deckchair and a nice cooling glass of Pimms rather than worrying about who’s going to be in charge.
Mind you, while everyone else is enjoying the sunshine, those in of us who work in the property business will still be busy finding homes for people, especially in the rental sector.
I know most people are under the impression the housing market cools off during the hotter months but just remember this - September is only around 8 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.
