Getting away for the summer is a treat that many people look forward to all year round. A summer holiday is the ideal chance to relax and unwind, putting the stress and pressure of everyday life behind you. However, in order to fully switch off, it is essential that you are comfortable about what you leave behind. You want to make sure that you keep your property safe when you are away, and at Austin Property Services, we have some home security tips for you if you are going away this summer.

One thing you should bear in mind when you head off on summer holiday is minimising the amount of people that know your home is empty. Social media is a fantastic way to communicate with friends and family members but depending on your privacy settings, you may find that more people see your posts than you would like. Therefore, while airport bar pictures and poolside snaps may be great to make your friends jealous and let your family know you are having a brilliant time, they may act as an invitation to local burglars.

Traditionally, summer is a quieter period in the UK property market. Spring has long been seen as the most active time of year and in summer, many people have more important things on their mind. With the summer of 2018 being a World Cup summer, there will be some people protesting that they have more important things to do than care about the property market, but the level of demand in and around the property market means that this is a year-round market.

At Austin Property Services, we know that people are looking for information relating to relevant markets. We aim to ensure people are fully informed because when you are fully informed, it is more likely that you will make the right decision. If you have an interest in the Bournemouth property market, we will ensure that you are up to date with property prices and values for the summer of 2018.

Given the competitive nature of the property market, it is essential that homeowners do all they can to sell their home. When prospective buyers are looking at so many properties, you need to make sure that your home stands out for all the right reasons. At Austin Property Services, we are delighted to say that we have helped many homeowners sell their property, and we know many tricks and tips to make your home stand out. Therefore, we believe smart gadgets and devices help sell your home.

If your focus is on increasing the value of your property, you’ll find that there are more effective ways to achieve this than by adding smart gadgets. These devices aren’t going to increase the price of your property by much, but, if you want to ensure that a prospective buyer remembers your home, the right gadget makes a massive difference.

When it comes to finding the ideal estate agent to help you sell your home, there is no shortage of options. Every vendor has their own ideas about the support they require, and the ideal agent for one household may not be suitable for someone else. Therefore, you need to put some thought into finding the right agent for your needs but at Austin Property Services, we believe local agents offer advantages online agents cannot provide.

There has been a lot of talk about online agents in recent times, and the fact that these agents offer a low-cost service grabs attention. Selling your home can be expensive and it is understandable that many people are looking for ways to minimise their costs. This is a key reason in why online agents have become very popular of late, but it is important to remember that low cost doesn’t always equate to value for money. In fact, saving money in the short-term using a local agent may lead to you spending more money in the long-term.

Buyers Are Going To Extremes To Purchase Property

As there is so much competition in the property market, it is no surprise to learn that some buyers are going to extremes to find the property that is right for them. Some of the examples provided by NAEA Propertymark are humorous and detailing the lengths some prospective buyers will go to in order to purchase property, and if you are selling your home, you’d be keen to see buyers as interested as this.
