House Prices Look to be Stabilising

House Prices Look to be Stabilising

05 October 2021

After an unprecedently busy year for the housing market, thanks in no small part to the Stamp Duty Holiday and a shift in the needs of homeowners, we saw the national average price of property and their demand hit an all-time high.

But it looks like there is good news for buyers as the steep rise in house prices has shown its very first signs of easing off and some indication that they could begin to normalise.

This is reflected in that we’ve already seen new properties increase by 14%* since August and the newly coined “Power Buyer” market continues.

Buyers who have already sold their own home will find themselves in a very good position, particularly against those buyers who still need to agree a sale on their home – or even put it on the market!

As we see a shortage of available properties and with demand from buyers at an all-time high (more than double pre-pandemic levels), it’s understandable that buyers are a little disheartened by the lack of options and many have postponed putting their home on the market for this exact reason.

But what happens when the perfect property does come along?

There’ll no doubt be a huge rush to get the property on the market and you’ll probably need to accept a lower offer to ensure a quick sale.

It is so important that you are in the best possible position to proceed when the time comes and we want to give you back control of your move.

With the all-new Market Ready, from Douglas Allen, you can take away all of the pressure to find the right home and avoid any nasty fees.

We’ll pop round and get your home market-ready with photos and a video walk-round. We’ll also go through all of the pre-marketing paperwork and legal compliance – saving you precious time.

Importantly, your home will remain hidden from public view and all property sites, and we will do absolutely nothing with it whilst you find your next home.

You can then search for the home that is right for you with absolutely no time-pressure and, once you’ve found the one, let us know and we will share your property with hundreds of active buyers looking for homes just like yours in your area.

We will do everything we can to secure you a quick sale for the very best price, meaning you can act fast on your next home.

We really are giving you the remote control so, go on, press the Home button!
