January is a key month for selling property, and according to a new survey, consumer attitudes concerning selling property are at there best since 2008.
The survey by Halifax has shown that more Briton's feel that 2014 will be a good year to buy or to sell a property. Halifax started this survey in 2011 to help them monitor buying and selling patterns, and since then this is the first time that the amount of people who think that it is a good time to sell (50%) exceeded that amount of people who think that it is not a good time to sell (39%).
Over the past year Intercounty have experienced increased activity in the property market across Essex and Herts. Home owners have been pushed out of the City as house prices continue to soar, to towns such as Bishop's Stortford, Saffron Walden, Royston so that they can access great transport links into the capital, whilst benefiting from lower property prices and great local benefits such as excellent schools.
The lack of housing stock available in these areas will also impact on the cost of buying a property, with property prices expected to increase by 8% across Essex and Herts over 2014.
If you are thinking of buying or selling in 2014, why not pop into your local branch of Intercounty for a coffee and a chat.
