The early bird catches the worm

Prime holiday times like Easter can present opportunities for those looking to buy a house which can translate to lower prices and more flexible conditions for a better buy.

There are definitely ‘slower times’ in the property market cycle, such as Christmas and Easter, when many people are tied up with vacations and families.

Fewer buyers means less competition, providing the added benefit for buyers to ‘shop around’ for what suits them best.

With less people in the marketplace looking there are less opportunities for astute buyers to get out there and negotiate a good deal.

While there are advantages, it is also important for buyers to understand the market in order to buy at the right price.

Buyers agents know the property market better than anyone.

They have the ability to research the data needed to know what is the right value for the property and which properties are the bad eggs.
