Graham Ford, Chairman of Greenslade Taylor Hunt, explains why now is the ideal to make your move onto or up the housing ladder.

He said: “The firm continues to go from strength to strength, and I have received reports from various departments that it has been a busy start to the New Year despite the “B” word."

“I am a great believer that particularly in the residential market, people will always want to move, whether it be for job, personal or family reasons. Our strength is the quality of our staff and I am sure we are all looking forward to a busy 2019.”

He continued: “It's hard to think of a better time, over the past 10 years or so, for first time buyers. Also, for families, this is the right month to think about moving for children's schooling later in the year, and downsizers have plenty of superb urban and rural options."

“Mortgage rates are still low, and many of our sellers are highly motivated to get moving. February is a great month to find a home that suits your soul, so jump into the market and fall in love with your next home - before someone else does!”
