'BREXIT: what's next for the Property Market?'
  • paragraph

    image cannot be displayed

    We've now had a few weeks to assess the effect of 'Brexit' and, in spite of some early jitters, and some political turmoil, the housing market seems to be holding steady. At the point of leaving the EU, our estate agency branches had over 180 properties sold subject to contract, and only one customer withdrew from their purchase as a result of the referendum. What we have found, is that although sales continue to tick over, the number of properties coming onto the market has undoubtedly slowed, this perhaps due to a 'let's wait and see' policy taken up by potential home movers. We have also had the effect of the Euro's (sorry to mention that!), and now Wimbledon. Surprisingly enough, any major sporting event always seems to create a lull in our valuation diaries. Although I wouldn't claim to be an economist, I have over the past 15 years, witnessed the highs and lows of the property market. Regardless of any short term slow down, or even the unlikely event of small decreases in value, the market will return to a position of strength. The great British public want to own their own home (and I can't see that changing) and interest rates are likely to remain low. In short, its business as usual and I do not envisage any major changes to the housing market... but most importantly the demand is still there.

    Some Facts and Figures for 2016

    Average % of sale price agreed: 99.17%
    Average viewings per sale: 14
    Average time from sale to exchange of contracts: 60 day


    So, if you're thinking of selling, the above example will give you an insight of what to expect. What may surprise some people is that we achieve on average 99.17% of the sale price on each property; this being down to advising a realistic valuation, and having an extensive list of waiting buyers.

    Creating strong early interest is key to achieving a good price, a high initial valuation will lead to reductions further down the line, and a more protracted sale.

    If you are considering selling or would like a valuation on your home or investment property, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01433 651888.

  • paragraph

  • paragraph

    Make an Offer

    Once you have decided on your property it is time to make an offer. Your offer will be financially qualified by ELR and we will request proof of funds:

    * copy of your mortgage agreed in principle (AIP)

    * copies of bank statements - proof of cash funds

    * two forms of identification - residential and photographic

    Please confirm the name of your solicitor, we can recommend local solicitors.

  • paragraph

    Sale Agreed
    If the offer is successful a sale is agreed, the property is then Sold Subject To Contract. At this point ELR will instruct solicitors and the legal work to transfer ownership of the property can commence. Your solicitor will be able to explain what Stamp Duty will apply to your purchase price, please budget for Stamp Duty!
  • paragraph

    Survey

    Decide if you want a survey -

    Your mortgage lender will require a valuation by a surveyor, they will arrange this on your behalf. The lenders valuation is not an in depth inspection. You may decide you wish to have a more detailed report, if so we can recommend a local surveyor to you who will help you decide which survey is required.

    Alternatively if you are purchasing independently - no mortgage required, we can also assist and put you in contact with a local surveyor who will recommend what type of survey you need.

  • paragraph

    Arrange a Deposit
    Before you exchange on your new property you will need to ensure your solicitor is ready to do so. Your solicitor will request a deposit of 10% of the sale price of the property - this needs to be deposited with your solicitor before exchange can take place.
  • paragraph

    Exchange of Contracts

    Exchange takes place once your solicitor confirms that the deposit has been received and that there is nothing else outstanding relating to the sale/purchase. You need to be satisfied with all of the information your solicitor has provided during the conveyancing process. You need to be 100% committed at the point of exchange. When exchange takes place with the seller of the property the purchaser is then legally committed to purchasing the property.

    If you decided to pull out without due reason after exchange - your 10% deposit can be forfeit.

    At the point of exchange, you need to have organised building insurance on your new property. Our financial advisor can assist with all insurance enquiries.

  • paragraph

    Completion
    Completion is the day that you pay for the property and take ownership. On completion day, the money is transferred and the deeds of the property are transferred, between both seller and purchasers solicitor.
