Create Space And Meet Buyer Demand

There is a significant level of interest in the housing market right now, and buyers are looking for space.

At Frank Schippers, we have brought many buyers and vendors together of late. We know what local buyers want, and we stay in touch with market news. If you want to make an informed decision in the current housing market, we are here for you.

Buyer demand has risen of late

GetAgent, which monitors homebuyer demand across the UK on a quarterly basis based on market data from the major property portals, indicated there was an 8.5% rise in buyer demand in the third quarter of this year compared with the second-quarter.

Colby Short, founder of CEO of GetAgent, said: “The meteoric uplift in UK homebuyer demand in the third quarter of this year demonstrates a market that has well and truly bounced back from pandemic paralysis. More affordable areas were the strongest performing in terms of buyer demand in Q3, with plenty of room for further growth in some parts of the country.”

Colby continued: “It’s fair to say that the current stamp duty holiday in its various forms across England, Wales and Scotland has played a huge part in this revival and should continue to do so over the final quarter of 2020 at the very least. This is great news for home sellers who may have seen the value of their property plateau or even fall during the prolonged period of Brexit uncertainty that plagued the market over the last few years. With buyer demand now seeing a healthy increase, sold prices are likely to follow suit.”

How to create more space at home

The specialists at Space Station, who offer self-storage solutions and who are highly experienced in the removal sector, have shared leading tips that will help you move:

  1. Get help from the experts

  2. Plan your move well in advance

  3. Clean your items before the moving process

  4. Stay alert and continue to follow COVID-19 guidelines

  5. Use materials from around the home to lower costs and speed up the process

  6. Ensure all removal boxes are secure before you move

  7. Try to avoid using plastic bags and bin liners as best you can

  8. If you can, use vacuum storage bags

  9. If you are moving precious items, a wheeled suitcase is a great solution

  10. Protect the corners of your important items

Vlatka Lake is a Marketing Manager at Space Station, and she said; “Preparation and planning are the most important things movers can do when packing up their belongings ready for a move and this has become even more prominent with the tightening restrictions around the country, which can be a great source of stress and anxiety.”

Vlatka also said; “By planning ahead, you can make sure that this process remains exciting, as well as maintaining the safety of yourself and everyone involved. These simple tips can help you transition from one house to another with minimal stress and costs, whilst also making sure you are adhering to the protocols in place due to the pandemic.”
