Market Comment for August
Fri 15 Aug 2008
Fewer homes are changing hands even than in the dog days of the early 90s but there is more to a market than numbers. Were beginning to see a wary turning of the tide of sentiment. Buyers who were looking eight or nine months ago are now beginning to get back in the game because sellers are finally recognising that they need to be realistic in their pricing.
With so much focus on the negatives of house price falls, people are not looking at the positives if youre lucky enough to have a foot on the ladder, now is a spectacular time to trade up it. The discounts were seeing on larger properties are proportionally bigger, so if youre in the position to move, nows the time to do it.
