Now is "great time" to sell properties, expert says
People putting their homes on the property market at the moment have chosen an opportune time to do so.
This is according to Jane Marr, director of the Little House Company, who said that the limited number of available houses and flats at present means it is a good to time to sell.
She made her comments following the release of figures from Rightmove, which show that 29 per cent more properties have left the market than entered it so far this month.
The expert said: "This could be a great time to sell; with inventory levels dropping, a seller's home stands to receive a lot more attention."
Ms Marr also noted that trading up on the property ladder has become more difficult recently due to the strict lending criteria being imposed by lenders and the limited choice of homes on the market.
She added: "The worry of where the unemployment axe may fall next makes homeowners feel safer staying put."
