Book a Property Valuation
News September 7, 2020

What’s happening with the property market?

A question I hear all the time. As owning a property is going to be most people’s, single biggest investment in their life, it’s an important question to ask. The market in general has been through some fluctuating times recently, with many factors including Brexit, the Euro’s and the Olympics, school holidays all causing ripples of uncertainty.

However, locally, in the market place’s we cover through East London and Essex, we seem to have taken all of this in our stride and there seems to have been very little or no effect, on buyers wanting to move and prices do not seem to have been affected.

We are finding the demand from purchasers to move into the local area’s as strong as ever. One example being many people relocating from more expensive areas of London, taking advantage of good quality housing at more realistic pricing, along with the increased awareness and impact that Crossrail is having, also helping to fuel the interest.

At the present time, demand is outstripping supply, so if your thoughts are turning towards selling your property, now is a good time to getting started. Seasonal trends are not important as they once were – if people need to move, for whatever reason – they’re not waiting for a particular time of the year to look, so the market is always active. Currently the lower to mid-price range around our local areas of Havering are performing particularly well and the upper range is also starting to pick up.

As there is such a demand, you may already have made the decision to sell. So the next step is how do I start – and who should I choose to sell with. The answer may not be what you would expect us to say!

Look around the market place and consider all your options. If all you are looking for is a cheap marketing alternative, you may consider a pure on-line agent, that doesn’t have a high street presence with local advertising or office that you can easily call into or a sales team you can build up a trusting professional relationship with – one that just relies on the internet to do the job.

If you prefer to meet face to face, see what you are getting for your money, work with a full sales team, experienced people accompanying buyers to your home, someone that’s available every working hour, a company that offers a more personal service – that’s where we come in!

Remember, EVERY Estate Agent works on-line. We also happen to run an accessible office that you can call into at any time. It’s just the level of service that you are looking for will determine what you pay. Experienced professional Estate Agents though, can often negotiate higher prices, a photo of your property on a website alone will not sell your property for the best price.


If you would like free, no obligation advice on any aspect of selling your home - now or in the future – we would welcome your call. Most people seek more than one option when buying or selling, so why not hear what we have to say. You have nothing to lose and maybe a better price to gain!
