It's All About the Presentation
We find ourselves in a market where supply and demand are just not marrying up, with more properties coming to the market, so to be a successful landlord and achieve a rental at the best possible price and as quickly as possible.
Now more than ever, is the time to make your property stand out from the crowd. Tenants have choice, so ensuring your property presents in the best possible way is essential. Often between tenancies a fresh coat of paint will brighten and freshen a property and make it just like new again! Keep it neutral, then tenants can personalise the property better and make it their home. maybe making a feature recommend taking any of your personal artwork down, as it may be your Picasso… but someone else’s Banksy! If the carpets have seen better days, if you think you may have original wooden floors below, take a peek, it would be wonderful to be able to use them again, get them sanded and varnished, but first if it’s a flat check your lease, it me be a requirement to have carpet. If your property might need some TLC then we can suggest local contractors, also we have some great interior designers who can help create that essential Wow Factor.
Allan's November Market Update
So far we have been told we can stay working from the office, last time we all worked from home and our property managers were especially busy, this time probably more so as at this time of year heating system failures and leaks are bound to increase, fortunately we have excellent contractors who are on call. If we have to work from home out landline calls are diverted to our mobiles and we all log onto our office systems.
The stamp duty ‘holiday’ has certainly increased activity in the sales market, it finishes at the end of March next year. Effectively this has meant that, in most cases, to benefit as a buyer you will need to have a purchase agreed and under way before the middle of December due to the time that transactions take. The lockdown could make even this timescale difficult to achieve. There has already been lobbying of the Chancellor to extend the scheme, now we have the lockdown it is bound to intensify. We have to concede that the debt mountain of the country is reaching monstrous proportions and has to be paid somehow. I doubt that there will be any announcements until the budget next year, although a change in the rates would be welcome, the current system that was initiated by George Osbourne was overdue for reform, we can only hope that Rishi Sunak agrees!
