TV Property Guru Martin Roberts gives his spin on the latest property market figures- whatever they are!
Whenever house price data comes out, I think the Nation collectively hides under its metaphorical duvet, nervously glancing at the numbers in case they announce the end of the world as we know it (again) and, whether to those of us lucky enough to own our own home, likely our biggest asset has gone up or down in value (“on paper”.)
And especially at uncertain times like this, I think we all naturally cling to anything that gives even a modicum of positive news.
But my advice to you, unless you are actively in the market to buy or sell, is to take a deep breath, and RELAX. Because it doesn’t matter to your specific world at this moment in time. If you’re currently in the process, then perhaps pay a bit more attention, but even then what else can you do but ‘go with the flow’.
There’s enough to trouble our worried brains at the moment without overloading them with house price predictions and data.
And whatever the figures suggest, you can adapt your strategies to suit. On my property training courses we teach people how to make the most of ANY market conditions.
If it’s all hunky dory, as it seems to be at the moment- as people make the most of the stamp duty holiday and move to properties that better suits their post COVID needs- break out the bubbles. Well, it’s an excuse anyway.
