IT’S al­most shock­ing how much change we’ve seen and at such a pace. Just un­der a month ago we were go­ing to the bal­lot box to de­cide the fu­ture of the UK’s Euro­pean mem­ber­ship. Since then, well, David Cameron re­signed, the Labour par ty had an at­tempt to eat it­self, and we now have the UK’s sec­ond fe­male prime min­is­ter.

What­ever your feel­ings on the re­sult, and which­ever way you voted, it has been a fairly tur­bu­lent time as an in­vestor or if you have sav­ings. Fi­nan­cial mar­kets can be ver y volatile and it can take some real ner ve to stay calm – es­pe­cially with what we saw hap­pen­ing in the weeks fol­low­ing the EU vote. The pri­mar y nar­ra­tive in the me­dia has un­for tu­nately been one of panic, and this surely has not helped un­rest in the mar­ket.

The re­as­sur­ing point is that many of th­ese changes have been sur­face level, and the big­ger change down the road is go­ing to be at a slower pace, and hope­fully with time to be ne­go­ti­ated prop­erly and with pos­i­tive out­comes for both the UK and our EU cousins.

Hous­ing mar­ket sta­tis­tics this week re­por ted that in May house prices were up 8.1% year on year. Since then there has been a dip of 1% in the av­er­age ask­ing price, but prices are still sit­ting up at 4.5% com­pared to last year.The sum­mer months are nor­mally ac­com­pa­nied by a slow­down in the mar­ket so this may also be a fac­tor, ex­ag­ger­ated by the Brexit vote.

We should also re­flect on what David Cameron did or did not do for the UK hous­ing mar­ket. It was re­por ted last week that the for­mer prime min­is­ter and his gov­ern­ment over­saw the low­est level of house­build­ing since 1923. In fair­ness, it should be said that the Help to Buy schemes brought in to­wards the end of his ten­ure seem to have been pos­i­tive, cer tainly for in­di­vid­u­als.

With the lack of house­build­ing in the UK, the de­sir­able job mar­ket and a grow­ing pop­u­la­tion, it seems that longer term proper ty will con­tinue to be a safer place to in­vest, es­pe­cially re­flect­ing on the fi­nan­cial mar­kets dur­ing th­ese un­cer tain times!

If you’re look­ing for the most up to date proper ty mar­ket com­ment, please feel free to con­tact me. At Cameron Es­tate Agents, we re­ally have our fin­gers on the pulse!

IF YOU are wor­ried about the risks in­volved in in­vest­ing in prop­erty or per­haps you are sell­ing your prop­erty at the mo­ment and are look­ing to min­imise that risk, then Turbervilles Es­tate Agents should re­ally be your only choice.

The firm, which has of­fices in both Uxbridge and Hilling­don, is the only firm in the area to be reg­u­lated by the So­lic­i­tors Reg­u­la­tion Au­thor­ity. The reason for this is that Turbervilles Es­tate Agents is part of the same group as Turbervilles So­lic­i­tors.

Both of­fices are staffed by friendly teams of pro­fes­sion­als, who, in the main part, have been with the firm for over 10 years – some­thing of a rar­ity in the in­dus­try.

This means that when it comes to in­for­ma­tion on sell­ing or buy­ing a prop­erty, you are get­ting advice from pro­fes­sion­als who know the area as if it were their back yard.

This ex­pe­ri­ence gives the staff inside knowl­edge when it comes to lo­cal schools, ameni­ties and let­ting you know about each area’s in­di­vid­ual char­ac­ter­is­tics.

One key ben­e­fit of hav­ing two of­fices in prom­i­nent high street lo­ca­tions is that those clients sell­ing prop­er­ties sig­nif­i­cantly in­crease the num­ber of prospec­tive view­ings (as prop­er­ties are ad­ver­tised at both of­fices).

As well as us­ing the tra­di­tional method of post­ing your prop­erty de­tails to prospec­tive pur­chasers, the es­tate agency is also able to text and email your prop­erty de­tails to po­ten­tial buy­ers at the touch of a but­ton, en­sur­ing in­stant, tar­geted mar­ket­ing of your prop­erty, help­ing to speed up the process.

Es­tate agency man­ager Ben Pur­cell com­mented: “2016 has been an ex­tremely busy year for us so far and we have seen our busi­ness grow from strength to strength in all ar­eas of sales, lettings, prop­erty man­age­ment and con­veyanc­ing.

“Turbervilles Es­tate Agents is part of the Turbervilles Group, which in­cludes a firm of so­lic­i­tors (Turbervilles So­lic­i­tors) as well as a wealth di­vi­sion (Turbervilles Wealth).

“Be­ing part of a larger di­verse group means we are the only lo­cal
