Solihull property set for stable 2015


When a New Year starts there are lots of predictions and crystal ball gazing and the world of property is one of many subjects that often has plenty of media attention in this annual ritual.

Being involved in helping so many people move house in the Solihull area we obviously have an input into this little game, and we do have more of an insight into what will happen, more than many professions do.

Analysing the predictions from large estate agents, the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and large lenders, it appears that 2015 isn’t going to be a year of boom or bust for the property market here. Those who write the tabloids won’t thank us for saying this but it all looks quite unremarkable.

Our comments aren’t the most headline grabbing, but in the UK we have an obsession with property and here in Solihull this is no different, so it is worth saying.

All the indications should mean a year when there remains trust and confidence in property and that should benefit the whole economy.

Most of the experts have predicted small rises and this should mean many moves during the year to be more based on lifestyle needs rather than other factors.

A stable housing market means people move for the right reasons, which is good to see.

Not so long ago when property was rising at an astronomical rate it created a very strange environment and we can only hope the effects of the relatively recent recession has meant people have learnt lessons.

What will remain certain for those moving in the next 12 months is the knowledge that a property purchase is a highly stressful matter and those involved need to make sure they don’t cut corners.

Buying a house is in all probability the most expensive acquisition you will ever make, so don’t skimp on cheap conveyancing which is dealt with in a call centre environment hundreds of miles away.

Good conveyancing in the big scheme of a property purchase is relatively cheap and can give you assurances that everything has been done correctly. It prevents some nasty shocks and it is well worth ensuring you have that peace of mind.
