  • I think it's a fantastic time to buy. Residential market in London is fairly quiet and probably best before Christmas as, if market performs as normal, it'll get really busy next spring from end of Jan on. Then it'll be mad and not pleasant at all as there'll be way too many people looking to buy for the amount of instructions coming onto the market.

  • Not only could this be a good time to buy a house, but it may be the best time in years. For some reason, home buyers seem most interested when prices are high. We all like to see minimum priced offers on the prime locations of London such as Mayfair, Kensington, Regent Street and Marble Arch. Mayfair, in particular, has seen something of a resurgence in the past few years, with many of the offices being converted back into houses and flats. You should conduct a property search through real estate agentsto ease up your purchase. In London, for example,the Plaza Estates firm can provide you all the information about the rentals as well as properties for sale in every region.

  • Answer is, nobody knows. It's a good time if you NEED a house and price growth is a bonus because it may or may not happen in the near future.

  • Yes! Estate agents are desperate people at the best of times, but now? They will do anything to get you on their 'books'. Drive a hard bargain with the sale percentage, just remind them that you're not the person to fund their childrens private education or their newly acquired BMW 1. Oh, give them a maximum of 4 weeks to sell your property, otherwise, "see ya!" ...
