The property market is a constantly evolving entity. This August 2023, it’s exhibiting a unique blend of challenges and opportunities, making it a fascinating time for both sellers and buyers. Here at Property Webb, we are committed to understanding these shifts and guiding our clients through them.
Understanding the Current Market Dynamics
There’s no denying it – interest rates have seen a rise recently. However, we’ve also noticed a slight decrease in the past few weeks as lenders jostle for a more competitive edge. The key here is to have a reliable, independent mortgage broker or a professional who can scan the entire market, ensuring you get the best offer.
For buyers, it’s not just about the property price. Understanding your affordability is vital. If you’re a first-time buyer, remember you’re stepping onto the property ladder. The first home you choose may require some compromises, but it’s just the first rung of many. And those considering upsizing might be surprised to learn that you can port your current mortgage and rate. Once again, the advice of a seasoned broker can be invaluable in this instance.
The Importance of Proper Pricing and Presentation
Two significant factors influence how quickly a property sells, particularly when the market is more challenging:
- The right pricing
- The right presentation
With these two keys correct, your property will sell – some properties may find a buyer within a week, while others may take four to eight weeks, but you will find the right buyer.
