Home Sellers: What To Look Forward To
No one can really say for sure if one can still achieve quick property sales with the current condition of the United Kingdom economy. For one, the government is making huge cut-backs on public sector jobs and may even integrate a few portion of it to the private sector. This means that many companies are reducing the monthly salaries of their employees significantly and at the worst, letting go of them.
An even bleaker scenario would be, these said companies being forced to close down due to the extreme financial hardships. And with the government approving the abolition of HIPs, which actually is a law that requires home sellers to submit detailed facts about their homes first before even putting it in the market, then it is likely that availability of properties in the market would not be sufficient. Even if there are adequate supplies of properties, this does not match the people's salaries especially those who have a hard time meeting financial obligations.
Furthermore, even if there are those trying to convince their estate agents to break the law and put their house in the market, it still does not guarantee if selling their property as of today is a reliable idea. The thing is that if this continues then there will likely be a second crash or correction. Economists and other business professionals are anticipating it anytime soon.
On the brighter side of things, interest rates are quite low and this translates to the fact that the economy is still standing firm against a total crash and more surprising is that the Halifax indices have shown a 0.6% increase within a period of three months. The number may appear small but it means a lot since it reinforces the possibility of the economy being stalwart against recession and the fact that it is gradually recovering. If the case was that only a few interests rates were low then one would not be recommended in taking such action but with the Halifax revealing such a result, business experts would not think twice in advising home sellers to put their house in the market. There is a fair chance that the house can be sold in a reasonable timeframe. It is even recommended to do so sooner unless the homeseller wants his or her home left in the dust. To sum it all up, it is still up to you if you would take the risk but then again, it might be worth the effort.
