We are now in July and there is still a much higher quantity of people on the look out for property than at this time in recent years. We have seen very high numbers of enquiries from vendors looking to sell which has, in turn, led to a hugely successful sales period between the end of April and July of this year and the trend looks set to continue for some time to come.
We believe, much of this delayed and prolonged interest in the property market, is as a result of the Brexit effect. Earlier in the year uncertainty surrounding Brexit was at a high and many people chose to ‘wait and see’ what might happen next before moving. However life goes on…
As the political logjam continued it became apparent that people just wanted to get on with key life decisions.
Looking to buy before September
In May and June we experienced a spike in interest and sales which has continued unabated. We have good numbers of people on our books still intent on moving in to a new home before September.
So, despite the ‘B’ word, 2019 is actually looking really good for home sellers and home buyers, especially when you factor in the traditional, annual increase in the property market, which always occurs following the Summer holidays. People don’t stop looking at property in the Summer months, with many home buyers looking to find a property they love and to move in to, ready for Christmas.
Get a head start on other house sellers
If you have been thinking about selling your home, It makes perfect sense to set the ball rolling now to make the most of the current market buoyancy and to beat the rush of prospective sellers who will market their property from September onwards.
Even if you are not quite ready to go on the open market you may find it useful to have a chat with Osprey Property Sales Director, Jamie Tyler, who will be happy to chat through options available to you or simply to give you an idea of the current value of your home.
