Getting you moving!

Lots of people decided to wait until after the referendum to move. Are you still undecided if this is the right moment?
Let's talk through the potential issues.

Is now the right time?

A lot of people told us they were postponing their move until after the referendum as there wasn't much choice of property to buy.
Now the decision has been made, and since leaving the European Union is probably 2 years away, people will start to get on with their moves. A lot of families are keen to move before the start of the school year, so there should be a good variety of property coming onto the market.


Does my property need repairs before I sell?

This all depends on your timescales and the price you're hoping to get.
Walk around your home and make notes about what needs fixing, decorating or just de-cluttering to make it more appealing.
Remember what made you want to buy it and also think about what's important to you in your next home.
If you're a busy family then it's likely your buyer will be the same. If you'd be put off by the repairs needed then it's worth getting them fixed.
