The signs are already showing with the political dust having settle that there is an air of purpose and optimism. None of us can doubt that there will be tough times ahead but the indications relating to the property market are encouraging.
The government have already suspended Home Information Packs and there are rumours of stamp duty changes and we are seeing that mortgage lending is on the increase.
Having been an estate Agent for many, many years I have had a number of friends, family and acquaintances approach me over the last couple of years and have asked ‘What has happened to the housing market?’ My answer is always the same, which is ‘You cannot beat having your assets in bricks and mortar’ and suggest that they remember the value of their property at the turn of the millennium against that of today. We all remember that night, or perhaps we don’t!
There will always be peaks and troughs in the property market but all round it is still a wonderful investment, not withstanding the enjoyment, the interest and inspiration that living in your own home can provide.
It now costs you nothing to place your home on the market so have a think about the move, how great would it be to be in occupation in the house of your dreams towards the end of late summer/early autumn
