THE days are get­ting longer, Easter is a few weeks away and the prop­erty mar­ket is re­ally hot­ting up. It can only mean one thing – we’re com­ing up to spring time. And it could be one of the busiest pe­ri­ods for the lo­cal prop­erty mar­ket in re­cent mem­ory ac­cord­ing to a multi award-win­ning Uxbridge agency.

Lisa Heather, branch man­ager of Gibbs Gille­spie in the High Street, said: “Spring is tra­di­tion­ally a busy time with peo­ple look­ing to move home now the win­ter is a fad­ing mem­ory.

“The level of in­ter­est from buy­ers al­ways rises and when you add that to an al­ready buoy­ant mar­ket it means I think we’re in for a very busy time.

“There are plenty of first time buy­ers and lo­cal fam­i­lies keen to move in and around Uxbridge.The changes to the stamp duty tax for prop­erty in­vestors and peo­ple buy­ing to let has meant more homes are be­com­ing avail­able for th­ese kinds of end user buy­ers.”

But what’s the best way to pre­pare your prop­erty if you are think­ing of sell­ing in the next few months?

Lisa added: “Spring clean. As ob­vi­ous as it sounds the eas­i­est ways to make your prop­erty stand out is by fol­low­ing some sim­ple steps.

“Firstly de­clut­ter, it’ll make your home feel big­ger what­ever its size.Then if you have a gar­den give it some at­ten­tion. It doesn’t have to look like some­thing from the Chelsea Flower Show but if it’s well main­tained and tidy it’ll be a big plus point.

“Fi­nally call us in to value your prop­erty now. From the point of in­struct­ing an es­tate agent un­til the time it goes on the mar­ket can take a cou­ple of weeks as all your prop­erty’s de­tails, mar­ket­ing and pho­tog­ra­phy needs to be prop­erly ar­ranged.

“Get­ting onto the mar­ket ear­lier in the sea­son will help your prop­erty stand out even more.”

Call Lisa on 01895 272742 for a free val­u­a­tion of how much your prop­erty is worth in this in­cred­i­bly buoy­ant mar­ket or pop in to have a chat at 268 High Street, Uxbridge.
