  • Not sure what your price range is, but it can always be the right time to sell your property - it just depends on your reasons. For example, if you intend to purchase another higher value property, all that matters is the difference it costs to move. So, if you are looking to achieve £250k but accept an offer 10% lower, then provided you can negotiate a reduction of £25,000 on your new property then you have broken even. If the house prices drop by 10% then remember that 10% of £400,000 is a lot more than 10% of £250,000. So, if you are moving up, there are likely to be bigger savings for you. Of course, if you are downsizing, the opposite applies but you may still be able to break even on the move down.

  • The above advice is spot on. As long as you price your property realistically, it should sell. It is always best to get 2 or 3 local estate agents to value your property, the differences in valuations could make the difference to you selling or not selling. A property valued too high can sit on the market for years with little viewings.

  • Completely agree with both answers above. as long as you are being realistic with the price you market your property for, then it shouldn't be a problem getting it let. it is advisable to speak to a couple of different agents to arrange a valuation to see what their thoughts are. If you are going to use an agency, it is not always advisable to use the agency who offers you the highest price, because this may mean that your property does not get sold.
