It is that time of year when some scratch their head and decide whether to market their property but are deterred because they haven’t anywhere to move to and “there is so little on the market”. Of course, if everyone thought this then the property market would grind to a halt and supply and demand would be based upon those having to move or having to sell for reasons such as divorce, job change and bereavement.
It is not unknown for sellers who receive a good offer for their home to turn it down because they have not yet found “the right property” and worry that they will in effect become homeless should they sell first, although we as agents are quite adept at managing this to ensure that this doesn’t happen. This can often lead to sellers losing out as their properties remain on the market.
So, to make that necessary or desired move, it is often necessary to get into a strong position first, to have that faith and to find a buyer for your property first. If you try and find a property to move to first then you may become frustrated at not being taken seriously and missing out.
At Killens, we are firmly focussed on helping our sellers and buyers to achieve their aims without fuss or stress and to create a win-win situation.
