Christmas is coming in only one month time!
Now you are planning the Christmas decorations, what colors to choose for the tree and the delicious food to offer to your family in front of a warm chimney.
And why don’t planning to arrange your Christmas tree in a new house?
Do you know that when the year is running to the end and the time for hot chocolate starts is the best time to sell or buy properties?
Waiting until next year means that you might encounter market risks, as the prices can fluctuate and you might receive a higher bill from your solicitor or surveyor if you haven’t agreed on the fees yet.
The moment to buy or sell is the right one at the moment and we have prepared a quick guide to assist you in finding a new property when Christmas is coming.
I AM BUYING
How much investing?
First of all, budget yourself. This means not only planning how much to spend to buy a property. You have also covered the costs for stamp duties, conveyancing, moving your belongings and any other work you wish to carry out in your new home. To find out how much you are going to spend for your stamp duties, you can check our guide.
It’s all about conveyance
When you are buying you have also to choose your solicitor. We recommend hiring a solicitor that offer a “no sale, no fee” deal. The reason is easy to be told. First of all, you will not have to pay a penny in case something goes not exactly as planned. This will also speed up the process and will guarantee you a more efficient route.
Planning a mortgage?
Don’t rush into this. A mortgage will bind you for a long time and you are willing to spend as less as possible.
We recommend talking with a mortgage advisor that can guide you through the jungle of the various possible mortgages available on the market, how much money you can borrow and if to pick a fixed or variable interest rate. The process can be exhausting, I know, and to make the process as smooth as possible, try to contact different advisors, to choose and hire only the one you are feeling the most comfortable with.
Booking the Removal Firm
If you are planning to move before Christmas, please remember that prices will go up and most of the companies will be very busy and be booking your removal company can be difficult.
