There’s a report out today from Rightmove which highlights the fact that the housing market has a high level of unsold stock at the present time. For more details, see this piece from The Independent. http://ind.pn/hGyVwj
It’s not too surprising that this should be happening bearing in mind current conditions and the financial position many people find themselves in. Today also sees the release of a survey by the data firm Markit which says that the overall situation represents a “further steep deterioration in household finances.” http://bit.ly/eI2HIk
Notwithstanding that, we still have to go on living normally and, for some of us, that will involve moving house. We’ve been looking around at the properties advertised for sale and it certainly appears that vendors are starting to test the market by inflating the prices to some extent at least. This is undoubtedly contributing to any stagnation but at the same time provides an opportunity for realistic sellers.
You might say that reducing the price will affect your ability to buy the home you want to move into but of course, if you have sold already, you will be a lot more attractive a prospect to the seller you want to buy from. It then becomes important to reduce the costs of the transaction as much as you can. We can help you with all of this and our last blog post explained in detail how you can sell through Front Estate Agents for as little as £995 including VAT and an EPC.
If your Estate Agents’ costs are significantly lower than they might be by using the more traditional approach, you can then afford to be more realistic on your selling price and avoid the trap we’ve been discussing.
If finding the £995 in advance is a problem, then take a look at our new service by following this link http://www.paydelay.co.uk/ We can help you take advantage of this very competitively-priced arrangement and really enable you to get a step ahead in the market.
