Are you thinking about selling your home this Autumn? Many people choose to sell their home in Autumn as it’s a lovely time to show people around your home and garden. It also means you will typically be ready to move to your new property early in the New Year.
The property market at the moment is still very buoyant, with Scotland seeing a 171.6% increase in properties sold from May 2020 until May 2021*. Whilst the Government’s Stamp Duty holiday has ended, there’s still significant interest from first time buyers and home movers.
When you sell your home in Autumn, it enables you to plan for a brand new year in your new home and spend one last festive season in your current property. It’s also a beautiful season for showcasing your property to potential buyers with the leaves changing colour, late nights drawing in and it’s a great opportunity to demonstrate how cosy your home is.
Low Interest Rates
The mortgage market is extremely competitive at the moment which has helped lower interest rates across the industry. Consequently, more people are considering buying their first property or moving home to a larger property.
Yorkshire building society recently lowered one of their mortgages to 0.78%; their lowest ever mortgage rate. This is just one of many examples of low, affordable mortgages available to people at the moment.
New buyers have the option to explore Government schemes that can help them take their first step onto the property ladder. The Scottish Government LIFT scheme has helped thousands of first time buyers get onto the property ladder.
We regularly speak to people in a variety of circumstances where they’re waiting for new properties to be listed on the market, so in many instances, demand is still exceeding supply.
