The housing market has been buoyant in recent months and properties are going under offer quickly – but this could change.
Once the Stamp Duty Land Tax holiday comes to an end (it’s currently due to finish on March 31) property experts predict a slowing down in the market.
This could be frustrating news if you find yourself ready to sell but are struggling to attract potential buyers.
However, there are simple steps you could take to encourage viewings and, ultimately, offers to purchase.
Interestingly, surveys of house hunters have revealed that they spend about a fifth of the time viewing a property looking at the views out of the window. So that means you could spend some time tidying the garden up too.
With the impact of Covid, and so many working from home, making your house appear roomy is a must. Make use of outside space too. For example, if you have garages, outhouses or sheds, keep them cleared and tidy, so viewers can visualise any potential to convert them into home office or work spaces.
Of course, there is a lot more to buying and selling a property once an agreement has been reached and an offer accepted. It is at this stage, that both parties need to seek professional, legal conveyancing advice. The better the legal team helping you, the smoother and quicker the sale transaction will be.
