If you’re considering moving home in 2017, the beginning of the new year is a great time to start planning ahead and preparing. After the excitement of Christmas and Hogmanay have passed, we often start reflecting about our resolutions and plans for the year ahead.
New Year, New Beginnings
The New Year is a time for change; an opportunity to make a fresh start, turn our dreams into a reality and improve our lives. January is an increasingly busy period in the property market, despite the common misconception that spring is when it all starts happening. Buyers start looking for their dream home early January – according to all major property portals. This update from Zoopla states they see record traffic levels in the first half of January. So if your dream is to sell your property and find a new home, this is the perfect time to get the ball rolling.
The Scottish property market has been incredibly strong throughout 2016, with values and sale prices rising steadily. According to Zoopla, there has been a 7.89% increase with current average values of £183,043.
2017 is expected to remain positive and competitive, particularly in light of record-low interest rates and the Help to Buy scheme introduced by the Scottish government. At Vanilla Square, we are seeing an increased number of sales and enquiries from house hunters, so we are looking at a very busy period at the start of the new year.
