Selling Your Home - Is Now a Good Time?
As we are all aware by now, the property market is a ferociously uncertain one. With that being said, one thing is for the certain and that is that the rumours are true – house prices are rising. Not only has the property market been given help from the government in a variety of ways, but the main factor is also there are more buyers than there are sellers. Looking over the market history the dramatic increases in value property is selling for is quite staggering, so surely this is a good time to sell?
In a nutshell, if you want to sell your property for possibly the highest price it has ever been worth and increase your budget to put towards your dream home; yes. Some people had queried whether the end of the stamp duty holiday would see a change in direction in the spike in house prices. In actuality, we are continuing to find ourselves in a buoyant market, meaning it remains an excellent time to sell. Reports have suggested no indication to the stamp duty holiday (due to fully end at the end of September 2021) having any notable negative effect on the overall health of the market and prices. In fact, houses prices are expected to remain strong throughout the end of the year and well into early 2022.
Some people when deciding to sell their properties may have concerns about an onward purchase and the common trend of not being able to view property until being in a position to make an offer themselves. Although a lot of sellers are relaxing on this stance and making viewings more accessible for those who have a property to sell or are in another situation, there is also the case to consider that it may be in your best interest to be proceedable. Regardless of whether a seller allows you to view their property if you and another person fall in love with it, the person who is able to proceed is much more likely to have a happy ending. As we know, the property market is very fast passed currently, so it is important that you can keep up.
Now, there may be the concern, what if I sell my house and then have nowhere to go? Well, if you have both a good agent and a good buyer, this should not be a concern. The ideal buyer is someone who loves your house and is willing to work around your timescales, and a good agent will be completely transparent and clear with potential buyers about this in order to find the right buyer.

Forest Marble were fantastic throughout the whole moving process. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone and would never use another estate agent in the area! Amy was kind and professional, communicating with me daily when necessary. With lawyer complications she kept me sane! Aaron and the rest of the team were equally lovely and helpful whenever I rang. Nothing was too much.

Forest Marble and especially Amy and Laura, went above and beyond to make our move possible. We had previously been with a different estate agent and experienced a very different service, the communication and attitude of Forest Marble was exceptional and we felt confident with them handling our sale and purchase. We would 100% recommend them as an active, approachable, friendly and efficient estate agents.
