Brexit: What Comes Next?
As we travel even further away from the October 31st deadline, we have to wonder – What’s next for us?
With uncertainty surrounding Brexit news in the minds of the population, it can be quite a task finding reliable un-doctored advice online regarding Brexit. This is especially the case when it comes to the property market. Many have missed out prime opportunities that could’ve benefitted them greatly in the long run.
Political situations have been known to influence the property market, something our mortgage advisors know all too well. As such, they’re preparing for the future by looking at potential outcomes for customers post-Brexit. There seems to be a lot of pent-up demand for properties at the moment.
It’s reasons like this why we are advising our clients to at least get a full view of their options, especially if they’re planning on just seeing how things go, which may not be ideal. If you are looking to move into a new house in 2020, we would suggest that you have a chat with as soon as possible. It’s our aim to make the process as smooth and easy as we can.
It can often take a while to prepare your home for sale and to get it on the market. This includes the two or three valuations to get a secured opinion, the time for you to choose your preferred Estate Agent, sign your agency agreement and get the photos finalised.
You may also come to realise that other people had the same mindset – when the new year comes around and your home is available on the market, theirs will be too. The more houses on the market, the more options available for homebuyers, which in turn could affect house prices.
Getting your home valued and getting ahead of the market will mean a few things:
- When the decision of Brexit is finally announced you have all the information there available at your fingertips.
- The decision to sell is all yours. It’s not a means to an end but it’s giving you a head start.
- If you do decide to sell you have the incentive to spruce up your property but if you choose not to, you already know the figures and the feedback to possibly get the figure higher by carrying out home improvements.
If you’re thinking of moving in 2020 or the near future, you’re always welcome to give us a call and discuss your mortgage options – We offer a free initial consultation to all customers.
