Time is Right to Sell and Buy this Autumn

October 2023

Simon Havens, Partner in charge of the Residential Department at Greenslade Taylor Hunt, explains why the autumn property market will throw up plenty of opportunities for positive buyers and sellers.
Some people think that an aircraft touching down on a runway is a landing while others regard it as a controlled crash. There are different ways at looking at most things.
The press is telling everyone that the property market is flat at the moment while many property professionals like us think it is brim full of opportunities. There may be fewer properties for sale than there were, but new ones are entering the market all the time. This is because some people’s circumstances mean that house moves need to be made immediately; they are unable to wait for a change in the market.
A seller’s need to sell and a buyer’s need to buy are often regarded as two separate things. But looked at another way each requirement satisfies the other by offering both seller and buyer a positive solution to their individual needs. Good estate agents look for these perfect opportunities and then offer seller and buyer the chance to strike when the time is right.
Some of our competitors also tell us this market is dead and they have little to do. Conversely, we are as busy as always as we see life in every market.
