Struggling To Sell Your Property?

This week figures have been announced that show the first drop in house prices for two years. Is this the start of a real slow down and is the housing market in crisis?Northern Rock's recent difficulties have shaken the market considerably, showing what could happen if the sub-prime mortgage collapse in the US continues to have impact on our own lenders. It's not hard to find doom-mongers amongst the market commentators, predicting that we are about to see the biggest slow down since the '90s or even that we're in for a full blown property price crash.The International Monetary Fund considers UK property to be over-valued by 40%, which is enough to send shivers run down the spine of UK home owners. Capital Economics, led by an ex chief economist from HSBC, forecasts a 3% fall per year during 2008 and 2009 due to the effects of the global economy and higher interest rates in this country.Added to this is the effect that Home Information Packs (HIPS) are reportedly having on the market, with some potential sellers being put off from marketing their home until the full effect of HIPS becomes known.This means that if you are trying to sell your house you're likely to see a slow down in viewings and may have to drop from your asking price to gain that elusive sale. For some people this is likely to cause real difficulties - losing the 'dream home' they really want, not being able to move to another part of the country thereby necessitating separate living arrangements for a period of time, or even taking out a bridging loan to cover the cost of two properties until such time as a sale can be made.Property Rescue guarantee to buy your home no matter what the market is doing or what the commentators are forecasting. Furthermore, the sale will be carried out in super-fast time, you won't have to pay legal fees or estate agency fees on the property you sell, you won't have to worry about HIPS as Property Rescue will take care of that for you, and you'll be free to move on to your next home.Give Property Rescue a call to find out more.
