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.”
