House prices now...

What ever’s going to happen with house prices in the next few years, it’s out of our control.

Now I’m not one to usually comment on ‘what I think will happen to house prices’ as I’m not an economist – they’re way more intelligent than me – and I’m generally a very positive person. Whatever happens with house prices is largely out of mine and your control. I interpret the market, unfortunately I don’t control (that would be cool though) and whatever the ‘external uncontrollable factors’ are, I achieve my clients the very best outcome at that particular time using excellent marketing and being a brilliant negotiator.

That said, I have certainly noticed buyers being a little more reserved before jumping in with both feet and offering over asking price, but at the same time, I’m still selling some properties over asking price very quickly. It’s an odd housing market. Some properties sell within 3-4 days, some take 3-4 months. Some properties sell over asking price, some need to have the price reduced before selling (fortunately, our ‘average’ %  of asking price is still 102%)

However, I can across a really well rounded, logical view of UK house prices so I wanted to share it with you…
