Most common misconceptions about the housing market


What a year it’s been so far – and it’s only July! We’ve seen the highest number of first-time buyers entering the market since the financial crash and we’ve also had to deal with a few property market jitters off the back of Brexit.

Although we’ve seen a few dips and waves, we’re in a really stable market at the moment, making NOW a great time to move.

Understandably, there are still a few concerns in the air, so I’m going to tackle a few of the most comment misconceptions I’m hearing at the moment.

Here goes…


“Now isn’t a good time to move, we should wait until after Brexit”.


WRONG! If you can move, there has never been a better time to do it! No one can tell you exactly what will happen after Brexit but we can tell you the market is nice and stable now.

This is the best environment to sell your house, not when the chaos of Brexit kicks in.


“We can’t afford to move right now”.


Where there’s a will, there’s a way and in today’s market where money has never been cheaper to borrow, there are plenty of ways to make your dream move happen.

There are a variety of fixed rate mortgage options out there, all you need to do is speak to one of our experts who have the knowledge and expertise to make it work.


“I’ve still got loads of work to do on my house”.


People like to put their own stamp on a property. Of course, if it’s finished to a high standard that’ll help with the value but your home doesn’t need to be a palace in order for you to get the best price for it – there’s a lot more to it than that.

Don’t put off your dream move any longer! The team at Edward Mellor Marple have the knowledge, resources, and expertise to make your move happen.
