The property market in the Forest of Dean, Monmouthshire and the Welsh Marches is steady, and we expect it to remain so over the rest of 2019.
In fact, we think that it is a very good time to be moving house – prices are stable.
Having said that, we reckon that asking prices can be inflated by anything from 3-15% – sellers, please listen to your estate agent and their professional opinion of price. Asking for too much money will not help you sell your house.
I presume that most of you are not property speculators – you are looking for the best home for you, for your family, for the future.
So, if you are thinking of moving, this is a good market to be a buyer.
You need to act by looking at properties, not on-line, actually looking at them!
But why now? Surely, it is going to take some time for the market to ‘adjust’ to all the uncertainty in the world. The answer is that the market is always ‘adjusting’ – the biggest hit to the market over the last couple of years was the Stamp Duty change of 2014. Those who worked through that particular adjustment and all the others since – Brexit, General Elections (x 2), Hung Parliament, Trump etc. etc. – those people who sold and bought cleverly, are now sitting pretty.
You just need to get on with it.
