House hunters should be taking advantage of the current turbulant market conditions to secure a property, according to one of the country’s leading solicitor-estate agents.
Scott Brown, Estate Agency Partner with Warners, believes that would be buyers – particuarly first time buyers with access to funds – should be making an offer for their dream home now rather than making the mistake of waiting for the economic climate to improve.
Despite property markets remaining steady and house prices continuing to rise in some areas, Scott says the slowdown has seen the emergence of more sellers than buyers in Scotland.
But that’s created an ideal climate for buyers to enter the market, as there are fewer competitors to bid against for properties and sellers are more willing to negotiate over price.
Scott said: “We are very much in a buyers’ market which is great news for anyone on the hunt for a property.
