Time To Buy A House?

Recommended Posts

In some areas there’s a lot of unsold stock and desperate sellers. We’ve achieved a discount of 33 per cent off the original guide price for a property in Hampshire,” says Edward Heaton, of Heaton & Partners (heatonpartners.com). This buying agency helps purchasers find a home, then negotiates to ensure the lowest possible price is paid.

Quote from the article

As a buyer, you can get a bit of a bargain at the moment. We’ve seen a seller’s market for 12 months, but as the pressure mounts for vendors to sell by the end of the year, the market has tipped,” says Martin Robinson, sales director at estate agency Hunters (huntersnet.co.uk).

Then I'll wait a bit longer - they'll just get cheaper

Thanks

This all adds up to one thing. Buy that home you want now or regret it if house values soar, says James Greenwood, managing director at Stacks Property Search (stacks-greenwood.co.uk).

“With oil prices falling, economic recovery talked up and election uncertainty resolved in the spring, there could be a boom late next year. It makes sense to buy now,” he says.

Lolz.

Love the "Ten Pointers for Canny Buyers" at the bottom, including such pearls of wisdom as:

  • Incentivise your estate agent: high commission for a quick sale.
  • Visually check property: obvious faults will justify a lower offer.

Praise be that we have journalists to tell us how to do this stuff, it'd be a disaster otherwise.
