Dreaming of a New Home this Holiday Season?

We’ve finally made it to the school holidays and thousands of Brits are preparing to trek off in search of a bit of summer sun. But this isn’t just a time for beleaguered parents to take a break from the school run and spend some quality time with the kids – it is also a time for home owners to reconsider their options and think about moving house.

I don’t know if it’s the change of scenery or the chance to take leave from the normal worries of everyday life but it is a historical fact that come the end of the holiday season housebuilders see a surge in interest from homeowners looking to change their surroundings.

Given the black cloud that has undoubtedly been cast on the country since the emergency budget it is understandable that people may feel cautious about taking a first step or the next step onto the property ladder. But before people jet off on their holidays I would like to reassure people that the market is still very favourable for making that important move into a new home.

For new buyers HomeBuy Direct is still around and continuing to offer people a fantastic opportunity to make that first move onto the ladder. House prices are rising slowly but there are some fantastic deals to be had on a variety of properties. Part Exchange schemes are also rising to the challenge of helping homeowners make a stress free move – with our own scheme MiSwap helping hundreds of homeowners every month.

So as you let your mind wander to a bigger house with a bigger garden whilst sipping on your favourite holiday tipple don’t be deterred from following your beachside dreams - they can easily become a reality as now really is the time to buy.

I wish everyone a happy healthy stress-free holiday.
