If you are thinking of buying or selling, or maybe you are already in the process of doing either, the current situation that we find ourselves in may well leave you feeling unsettled.
We at Cariad Property thought it may be a good idea to share our experience with you, how we are seeing the process unfolding at present…
Of course this is an unpresidented situation that we all find ourselves in, so we can in essence only say things as we see them, from our own and our client’s experience…
Clearly, being in lock down, we can not conduct face to face viewings, valuations or measure ups, this does however mean that we have a list of great properties that are waiting to join us and viewers that are waiting to view as soon as we are able to do so…rest assured, we will be in touch with them all ASAP!
This gives us a positive feeling for when we come out the other side, there is still an appetite for home moving.
Exciting new properties will be available and buyers, ready to go are excited to see propeties that we already have.
For those who are currently in the process of buying and selling, many transactions are still going ahead, the solicitors are working largely from home, searches are still being ordered and mortgage offers, the majority of, in our experience are being upheld.
We have been told that some lenders are now requesting larger deposits, this is mainly due to the fact that they can not send their valuers out and are relying on desk top surveys, so they are basically safe guarding their investment, but larger deposits don’t seem to be a problem, this affects new offers…
The moving process at present appears to be quite smooth as long as the property is empty. We would always advise you to discuss this with your solicitor and make your decisions from there as to how you will co ordinate a move and how you feel comfortable doing so.
A number of our clients have completed on their sales/purchases and we have made sure that the process is as easy as possible for them whilst adhering to social distancing requirements.
So to conclude, of course we can not offer the same personal face to face service that we love to offer, however we are still available on the phone and email if you need us, clients are still buying and selling and indeed enjoying the excitement of picking up the keys for their new homes…
We are also really looking forward to showing you the simply stunning new properties that are joining us and introducing you to the fabulous ones that we already have…
Until then, please take care and stay safe…
At Cariad we appreciate that your home is your most valuable asset and is very personal to you, the decision to sell or rent is often not taken lightly so it is important that you put it in the hands of a company that you can trust and feel comfortable with.
Look at your property through the eyes of your potential purchaser, are there any small jobs or loose ends that need to be tied up? Maybe a bit of decorating, a leaky tap, a patch of thread bare carpet that could do with replacing or simply a lawn that needs to be mowed.
