TWO IS BETTER THAN ONE

It is not just sensible to buy a property with someone else, it is smart and can save you a ton of money, time and effort in many cases. When it comes to property buying, two is often better than one.

As a property coach committed to helping people achieve their property goals, the obstacle I often come up against goes something like this: “I don’t have any money and can’t save the amount needed to fund a property deposit or to invest”.

ASKING PRICES CONTINUE TO FALL

Rightmove house price index for December 2018 shows that asking prices are still falling at a significant rate – down 1.5%, equivalent to a drop of £4,496 for the average property. The fall the previous month was 1.7%, giving a drop of 3.2% (or £9,719) over two months, the biggest two month fall since the same time of year in 2012.

SELLING BEFORE A CRASH

A lot of people lose sleep about selling too late when a property crash looks like it’s on its way. However, the reality is that there is little to worry about – unless you really need to sell in the year or two.
