Is a new home on your Christmas list? 🎁 With the festive season fast approaching now is the time to act, especially if you have to sell before you buy!
The latest report from espc shows homes in Edinburgh & the Lothians took a median time of 21 days to go under offer – seven days slower than 2022. With mortgage transactions taking (on average) 6-8 weeks to complete, it could take around 11 weeks in total before you are in your new home. If you want to be in a new home for Christmas, now is the time to act!
Here are our tips to get you in your new Ho-Ho-Home for Christmas:
Appoint a great Solicitor Estate Agent – that’s us 👋 VMH SOLICITORS.
We can handle everything, from marketing your home and agreeing the best deal, to carrying out the legal conveyancing of your sale and purchase. To find out more, contact us to arrange your free pre-sale valuation.
Organise your finances
Know your budget, speak to your lender or broker to get your finances in order and set realistic expectations on what you can afford to purchase and accept on your property. 👛
Deck the halls 🎄
Tackling those DIY jobs 🛠️ & giving your home a festive freshening up will give a good first impression. Just remember, decluttering doesn’t mean depersonalizing, and don’t go overboard with the Christmas decorations!
Time is of the essence ⏰
At VMH we can market your property within a week, ensuring you benefit from the most amount of time on the market. Using all the major property platforms, such as espc, Rightmove & Zoopla, your property will be seen by a wide audience.
The right buyer
The right buyer isn’t always the one who offers the most. If your budget allows, then opt for a chain-free buyer who isn’t relying on selling their home to buy yours.
