Taking Advantage of The Stamp Duty Holiday (Part 1) What Does Your House Have to Offer?

Written by: Fiona McBride | Posted on: | Category:

Are you considering taking advantage of the stamp duty holiday?

According to The Property News UK, house price growth is to reach 11.4% spurred on by stamp duty.

So, are you one of the many wishing to benefit from this temporary gift the government has bestowed upon us? If so, you don’t only need to be spending time looking for your dream home, you also need to put some serious thought into what your house will offer others.

For example, during lockdown many people re-evaluated what was on their “wish list” for a new home. No longer do they want to be in an urban property within the M25 perimeter with a square of concrete as a garden, their needs have changed dramatically.

Research has shown that gardens, home offices, and rural locations are the new ‘must haves’. So, bearing this in mind, have a think about what your house has to offer. Read this article on Zoopla, detailing how lockdown has changed home hunters’ priorities, then really think about who your buyers are and look at your home from their perspective. https://www.zoopla.co.uk/discover/property-news/revealed-how-lockdown-has-changed-home-priorities/,

Each room in your home needs to have a purpose. You often see houses listed as having 3 bedrooms and 2 reception rooms, but is that really important when a prospective buyer is looking for a house with a home office? So, how can we help you achieve this targeted approach to selling?

At Fushia Design, using our many years of expertise, we walk around and assess each and every room in your home. We are not as concerned about the size and value of your property, we are more interested in how we can maximise it’s appeal and visibility to your target market, but still using your existing furniture and accessories.

In next weeks blog, we discuss looking at your home from a different perspective… through the eyes of your buyer. For example, what are their pain points and how could moving into your property resolve them?
