“Put yourself ahead of the game when buying a property”
You don’t need to be a property expert to know that 2021 has been a highly significant year for the housing industry and here at Pendle Hill Properties, we are here to help you secure your dream home in what has become an extremely competitive environment.
According to Zoopla’s latest house price index, one in 16 homes will have changed hands this year, which is the highest rate for 14 years.
Not only that, but the average home in the UK is now worth £240,000, up from £200,000 five years ago.
A glance at a newspaper or a quick browse of the news online will have told you that, but it’s what happens next which will determine whether you make the most of house prices hitting an all time high.
Whether you’re currently renting and looking to become a first time buyer or you are ready to make that move to your forever home, you need to be prepared and most importantly you need to be “offer ready.”
It’s simple, a buyer will not accept an offer without a mortgage being in place (unless you’re a cash buyer of course), so you need to be armed with everything to showcase that your offer can be accepted.
From having your ID, proof of deposit, proof of funds (this could be an agreement in principle, a decision in principle or a letter or email from your mortgage advisor) and a solicitor all ready and in place, you will be organised and prepared for the next steps.
If you attend a viewing unorganised and without a mortgage, the chances are estate agents won’t even accept a viewing in this current marketplace. Be organised and armed with a mortgage offer however and you’re already halfway there to buying your next home.
