Is now the time to move in Northampton ?

When is the best time to move home' It's a question Northampton estate agents are frequently asked and our answer will always depend on the individual. We've had recent speculation about whether it was better to buy a property before or after the General Election. Now thoughts turn to markets - does the current market favour buyers or sellers' There's also the added element of interest rates, and who could talk about the property market without mentioning house prices. If you are looking at houses for sale in Northampton with buying in mind, it's worth speaking to a local estate agent to get a bespoke summary of the housing and finance market. While it's easy to get carried away and swayed by national headlines, personal circumstances should have the biggest bearing on home moving decisions. In every Northamptonshire branch of Winkworth is a team of property professionals who can advise both buyers and sellers on the property market's immediate future. We work in tandem with independent financial advisors and together we create a personalised home moving package for those in the county wanting to explore their options. Elements we'll take into consideration include: Current ownership status - if you already own a property, we'll discuss any mortgage that is currently active, as well as possible equity that may facilitate an onwards purchase. If a mover would like to buy their first property, our team will explore all the options available, including the Help to Buy initiatives. Mortgage requirements - if a purchase is dependent on a mortgage, we will talk through the latest mortgage application process. This has changed recently in light of the Mortgage Market Review, and applicants will need to disclose all of their financial commitments as well as demonstrate how they would afford repayments should mortgage rates star to rise. Local demand - it's too broad to say whether it's a buyers or sellers market in Northampton. Every property, street and postcode will have its own property microclimate and only a local estate agent will be able to give an accurate market summary, especially for those who have a property to sell. We use our powerful local knowledge, current list of qualified applicants and historical data to accurately forecast current demand and future house price trends. Once a full picture has been pieced together, we present to home movers so they can make an informed decision about whether to step on or move up the property ladder. If the figures and circumstances sit well with the home mover's personal circumstances, we can start the property search and marketing of an existing property immediately. If you'd like a tailored evaluation of the local Northampton property market relevant to your status, please contact Winkworth today.
