Is the property market declining or just correcting?

There has been lots of talk in the press for months (even years) about the property market ‘bubble’ and the implications of Brexit. The property market can be a volatile thing.  Just like money markets it can be driven by emotion, as well as cold hard facts.

Here in our local areas of Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire we have been out valuing properties and hearing concerns about the market ‘declining’.  Sometimes clients call us in because they have marketed their property with another agent, but it hasn’t sold.  In some cases they have already reduced the price and that doesn’t seem to have made any difference.  They are asking ‘Are the buyers actually out there?’

We firmly believe that the buyers are out there, but what we are seeing is properties being over valued.  With years of property boom you might think your homes is worth a lot more than it actually is. You also may be flattered by agents who suggest a high valuation for your property.  In some cases all this is true.  But in others, we need to be more realistic.

Honest, practical pricing

We promise to always give you an honest valuation of what we genuinely think your home is worth.  This won’t always be the highest valuation.  It will be what we actually think we can sell it for as ultimately that is what most buyers want.  Yes in some cases you might be downsizing and feel you have one chance to maximise that pension pot.  But for many people they just want to move on with their lives.  They might be looking for that bigger home, or more manageable flat.  It might be that first step on the property ladder, or a family home with a garden.

Whatever the reason, getting your property sold is the only way you can move on.  We pride ourselves on delivering a personal service every step of the way that helps our clients to do just that.  We maximise the value of their property through our local market knowledge and our marketing.
