After the pent-up frustrations of lockdown, we have some very good news to report:

Firstly: The housing market has now re opened in Wales with viewings on occupied homes now allowed again.

Secondly: The Welsh Parliament has announced a boost for buyers in the housing market with the raising of the LTT (Land Transaction Tax) threshold from £180,000 to £250,000* (*subject to terms)

If the idea is to kick start house sales then this is certainly doing the trick. There are plenty of buyers around, enjoying low interest rates too, but stock is woefully low, with 15% fewer properties available than this time last year. This boost will encourage people thinking about moving to do so immediately, as the concession expires in March 2021.

This additional activity will in turn generate knock-on sales and inspire even more confidence in a market that has come out of lockdown with only slight bruising. Indeed, before the LTT concession was announced, over 85% of movers said they still planned to move, despite the effects of the pandemic. The survey of over 2,000 movers was conducted by a property portal, who also predict that annual house price growth will hold at around 2% over the coming months as a result of renewed demand and overall activity.

What will happen as soon as the LTT holiday comes to an end is yet to be seen, but hopefully it will coincide with people coming to terms with lifestyle adjustments and being able to make longer-term housing decisions. Another portal has already reported that over 12% of movers are actually doing so as a result of virus-related living/working changes.

For the time being, if you are considering moving up, moving down, moving on or moving out, there will be no better time than right now to do so - and that’s not just bullish agents’ speak - this is exciting!

Do let us help you quickly and safely move home in this fantastic market.

STOP PRESS:

 

PARTIAL REOPENING OF HOUSING MARKET IN WALES

  

The First Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford has announced that there will be a partial reopening of the housing market in Wales from Monday 22 June 2020. 

 

We understand the Welsh Government’s five-mile Coronavirus travel restrictions are lifted for the property sector.  

 

The Welsh Government’s position is very much about opening as much of the market as possible whilst minimising risk. 

 

This means:

House moves can take place where a sale has been agreed but not yet completed.

 

The marketing and viewing of unoccupied residential property can take place. 

 

Valuations and inspections of occupied residential property is allowed but should be done so safely and in line with the Welsh Government’s guidance on working in someone’s home.

 

House moves can still not take place where the residential property is occupied. 

 

However, the Welsh Government have said that agents can now prepare to market these properties subject to a full reopening of the sector.  (We are hopefully that these properties will be opened for viewings in July.

 

Wiliams & Goodwin The Property People Ltd also trading as All Wales Auction will reopen our offices from Monday subject to the restrictions listed below:

It might be tempting to believe that the pandemic has been destructive and all-consuming on all fronts, especially in relation to the property market, which in Wales remains “on pause” and virtually, by comparison to usual times, ground to a halt over the last few weeks. 

 

But we British are a resilient lot! Our compliant “keep calm and carry on” mentality has meant that we have/continue to do our bit to protect our community, without losing our focus on those other things in life that are important to us. Our home comes close to the top of the list, along with family, relationships, job, pets, well-being and general prosperity.

 

While some businesses, for example a retail shop or a car showroom, will eventually start to trade again from where they left off, the property market is one type of business where the latent demand has accumulated during lockdown like a catapult being stretched. 

 

Many sellers and buyers wait in expectation for the next Welsh government announcement, will they decide to allow some movement in the housing market ? Or will lockdown remain a little longer?

 

Once released from lockdown we are expecting intense activity over the summer, to be conducted in a controlled manner that will need to adhere to government guidelines.  

 

In fact, recent research revealed that some 15% of home movers have been prompted to do so as a result of a change of plan due to the pandemic. During lockdown some people found that working from home suits them quite well, but they would prefer not to use their broom cupboard as an office. Perhaps time spent during May’s warm and sunny weather has sparked an interest in gardening too? 

 

Unlike other scenarios that might adversely affect the property market, we have a good balance of supply and demand, interest rates are incredibly low and banks are keen to lend. So, although statistics will show that due to Covid-19 lockdown sales might be down perhaps 25% this year, the consensus is that the rebound is likely to be strong.

 

The dynamics of the market may be changing, but we at Williams & Goodwin are ready for the challenge. 

 

Whilst we are of course highly respectful of the guidelines for safe property viewings, our focus remains on offering sincere, straight-talking and sound property-related advice to our customers. 

 

The pandemic might have changed society, but, as we emerge from our confinement, our vision remains the same:

 

We help match property to people; 

We help people in their decision making process; 

We help people find a home for their family or business and 

We help people move, whatever the circumstances.

 

If you feel moved to move and need help in making that big decision, why not call us on 01248 751000 for an initial chat? 

 

You might be pleasantly surprised.

 

Regards
