Property market well on way to recovery 

07/10/2020

Figures released in August and September this year have shown that the property market is well on its way to recovery, following on from the nationwide lockdown earlier this year.

The number of transactions across the UK have increased significantly as well as house prices. According to the Nationwide House Price Index annual price growth picked up 5% in September, the highest rate since September 2016. Whilst mortgage availability and approvals have also increased after being limited in April and May.

Tenant demand has also continued to increase and short term rental growth is expected. Since May this year there has been a sharp uplift in both tenant demand and landlord instructions.

Property market gathers momentum 

08/09/2020

Since it was announced that there would be a stamp duty holiday the property market has seen a mini boom of interest. Naturally, most of this interest has been focused on those properties that will most benefit from this change, with a huge increase in interest in properties on the market for over £300k. 

If you're selling your home, or are thinking about putting it on the market soon, then make sure you have a read of our blog on property viewing turn-offs - and how to avoid them! Also check out our tips to make sure your home is ready for viewings to make the best first impression.

When is the right time to move?

12/08/2020

Since it was announced that there would be a stamp duty holiday the property market has seen a mini boom of interest. In the five days after the chancellor's announcement, Rightmove reported a 35% rise in the number of sales agreed in England compared with the same period last year.

If you are thinking about taking advantage of the stamp duty holiday and you've got to sell before you purchase then make sure you leave yourself enough time. Although March 2021 may feel a long time away, the property market can be unpredictable and you never know how long it may take to sell. 

If you're a landlord looking to invest then now is also the perfect time. Taking advantage of the stamp duty holiday could help you save thousands.
