If you've been thinking about moving house for the past few months, or possibly longer for that bigger garden or more space in the house for a growing family, a better kitchen or just a change of space - whatever your reason, now could be the perfect time to make your move.
Today the government’s announced there will be a Stamp Duty holiday starting immediately on all completed house purchases up to the purchase price of £500,000 until the 31st March 2021. This means a saving of thousands for most people moving house and could make previously unaffordable properties affordable for many buyers. And for those who have been impacted by a potential reduction in the amount they can afford due to COVID-19, then they may be able to revisit properties.
Managing Director, Matthew Bates, said about the news "It's great to see the government taking positive action to help homebuyers. When you add in low interest rates, the news on stamp duty will now allow a number of homebuyers to make the move they were planning before lockdown and Coronavirus started to impact our lives.
For anyone who is thinking of moving, we offer a free property valuation service and also access to mortgage services through Embrace Financial services so customers are able to fully review their options. We also have a range of beautiful properties for sale that would make anyone's dream home."
