We’re getting close to the end of the year, which is always a good time to take stock and look ahead. Right now, there are two themes in the mind of Londoners: the lockdown and Brexit.
Many predicted that lockdowns would make property prices drop, but instead of crashing, they’ve increased. There’s a high demand for homes outside central London, and prices are rising fast in Belsize Park, Wimbledon, Wandsworth, and Dulwich.
Whether you’re considering moving to these or other London areas, you need to be familiar with Tier 2 restrictions, which now affect the city.
At Rogers Removals, we are open for business and have taken steps to continue operating safely
As part of our procedures, we now offer video surveys and also follow Tier 2 recommendations:
- Frequent hand washing / sanitising.
- Staying 2 feet apart.
- Using a face covering when indoors.
In line with government advice, we ask the help of homeowners during the move, by keeping the property well ventilated, cleaning their belongings before packing, and doing as much of the packing within the household.
With only a few weeks to go for Brexit, many will be wondering what will be the effect for us Londoners. The stamp duty holiday is an incentive for anyone looking to buy a property, so if you’ve started working from a new home this year, or are spending more time indoors and need a bigger house, this might be a good time to make it happen.
Following the vaccine announcement, predictions say that property prices in London could pick up from the spring onwards, irrespective of Brexit. Real estate agents forecast a 15% increase in London properties by 2024.
Why not use the winter holiday to assess your housing situation and see how it can be improved?
There’s no need to wait until 2021 for your New Year’s resolutions – the sooner you make changes, the better.
For some people, improving their housing situation will mean moving to a bigger or more affordable home. For others, it may mean renting for a few months before committing to a new part of London. And for others, it may be as simple as a serious decluttering session to make their home more enjoyable.
