January has flown by already, here's to a positive 2020 housing market!
Do you need to prepare for a move into a new home in 2020?
Whether you are moving due to a job change, schooling change, into your first property, or simply looking for a fresh start or new home, whatever your change in circumstances, we can help.
Here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Enter the housing market at the right price, to attract either first-time buyers or existing property owners/developers
- Ensure all DIY quick fixes around the house are complete to appeal to more house viewers
- Declutter and show your home at its best (maximise space)
- Remain organised when your house is sold, with both packing and address changing tasks (use our moving house checklist)
Decluttering doesn't necessarily mean you have to give your unwanted belongings away, you can simply store them to sell when you have the time. Container storage or a self storage unit is perfect for this. Declutter to minimise the scale of your moving house boxes and save on removals costs.

How to sell your house in 2020 – Which? News
Which?’s top tips on setting the asking price, listing your home, conveyancing and how to deal with Brexit.
If you are considering a 2020 house move, the UK expect to see more significant growth in property prices. Experts are stating it's largely expected that house prices will increase!
It's great news that mortgage rates have remained low, they may rise this year, however, any increase is due to be modest.
House Beautiful quoted:
"Recent research conducted by Good Move found that three-quarters of Brits over-estimate how badly Brexit has affected their local property prices, showing just how difficult it is to forecast. While the economy is still languishing, the weak pound could actually make the UK property market more appealing to foreign investors, as their money will go further."
