‘We are currently experiencing a market where it is a great time for both buyers and sellers,’ says Helen Cerpnjak at Jacksons. ‘There are plenty of properties coming to the market and buyers are queuing up to view and offer so there’s really never been a better time to sell. As a result of the constant demand over the past year the conveyancing process is still proving time consuming so we are recommending sellers instruct a solicitor as soon as possible. We are advising buyers to make sure they are in the strongest possible position when making an offer by speaking to a mortgage advisor, obtaining an agreement in principle and instructing a solicitor. These things will help you stand out when competing with other interested parties and particularly if a property receives multiple offers. With mortgage lenders bringing out competitive rates and products on a weekly basis, it’s a fantastic time to buy. The stamp duty holiday provided a beneficial boost to the property market. We saw a flurry of one and two bedroom apartments coming to the market, with the sellers of these properties keen to upsize locally to larger family houses. Despite the end of the stamp duty holiday fast approaching, the market is still going from strength to strength. Many buyers are viewing the stamp duty holiday as a bonus, but are still incredibly motivated to move whether it's June, July or later in the year.’

‘It's a very exciting market at the moment. We've remained busy throughout the pandemic and are starting to see the relocation market pick back up and prices return to pre-pandemic levels,’ says Carlene Phillips at Jacksons. ‘The team are out all day every day meeting new applicants, and we're constantly being called in to properties to discuss moves for later in the year, so we’re confident this will continue throughout the summer. Balham has always been a popular location for tenants due to the good connections into London from the tube and overground. Setting up the property ready for marketing is extremely important, make sure it’s not too cluttered and listen to the feedback from your agent. We can advise you on the market but the best feedback will come from those viewing the property. We’re here to help ensure the process of letting your property is as smooth as possible. There’s lots of legislation for landlords to comply with and any member of the team at Jacksons will be able to help with queries and make sure all your documents are up to date. As a result of the properties on the market being let incredibly quickly, we are advising tenants to have your references lined up, bring your passport to the viewing and be prepared to make a decision. You don’t want to miss out on your dream property because you weren’t prepared. We expect to see an even busier summer than normal with relocation agents starting back up again and a strong supply to the demand.’
