Sellers can benefit from a pre-Christmas shortage of homes for sale as Help to Buy stokes demand.
Homeowners who are looking to sell their properties now could benefit from a quick sale at a high price by taking advantage of a pre-Christmas window of opportunity.
The early extension of Help to Buy and the shortage of properties for first time buyers has seen demand shoot through the roof.
Homeowners looking to sell one or two bedroom properties can take advantage of the property shortage and make a quick pre- Christmas sale by putting their property on the market now as demand for such properties remains high.
Stephen Ludlow, Chairman of ludlowthompson, says : “Many homeowners typically choose to put their property on the market in January because they think completing at the end of the year would be affected by the Christmas slowdown. At the moment this is proving to be a myth. Because demand is so strong, highly sought after properties will be snapped up quickly.
“Selling now means that homeowners can steal a march on the competition that will flood the market in January when the majority of people come out of holiday mode.
“Time is of the essence as the Bank of England will also be looking to review Help to Buy next September, so in theory it could be off the table in less than a year. This is a very good time for homeowners to make the best of the high levels of demand the market is seeing now.”
Homeowners thinking of selling their property can benefit from ludlowthompson's 30 day challenge - ludlowthompson will halve it's fee for selling a property if a sale is not agreed within 30 days. The offer is available until the end of November.
