The property market is set to hot up over the summer, with the extra help being afforded to first-time buyers being just one of many reasons for the surge in the number of house sales expected by the end of the year.
People are generally more confident in the housing market and feel more comfortable making a move without worries of negative equity and the like. Furthermore, after a bleak winter, many experts expect that warmer weather will simply galvanise people into making a change, with many looking to move to new locations entirely.
However, just because the housing market is on the up and you wish to move, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you should simply be looking for new property to buy. With self-builds being more cost-effective and offering up homes perfect for an individual’s needs, the resurgence in the housing market may well mean it is time to seek the help of architects and quantity surveyors in Birmingham instead of the help of estate agents.
With the brighter summer nights making it easier and more appealing to view properties, the spring and summer are likely to be the best time to put your home on the market as well as the perfect time to start a self-build before colder weather could hold up proceedings. In turn, many homeowners could simply rent a property in the interim, saving themselves a great deal of money and ensuring that they are able to get the best price by selling in the summer and not have to spend more than they need to on their build by being held up by the poor winter weather.
A quantity surveyor in Birmingham will be the best friend of anyone looking to take on a self-build, as they will be the ones that help you stick to your budget and ensure that a self-build really is the most financially and practically beneficial option in this newly booming market.
