Christmas is over, the decorations have been stored away for another year (hopefully by now!) and we well into the new year of 2024.

At Benjamin Stevens we thought we would give you an insight for what is in store for the Edgware and Bushey property market this year.

Mortgage rates have levelled off under the 5% mark and there are lots of deals to be done out there for fixed term mortgages for both first-time buyers and movers.

House prices have stabilised and we have seen a 0.5% rise in house prices in December, so 2024 is looking promising, particularly as seasonal trends dictate that many people come to the market in January having spent the festive season at home. Could be they need more space to get away from the kids or they want to downsize to stop the in-laws from staying over again!

December saw the first Benjamin Stevens Auction on 12th and the excitement was incredible for both buyers and vendors who watched the 20 lots go to auction with fantastic results for both.

Watch this space for the next auction early this year, and if you have a property that has struggled to sell, then please contact us for more details on the modern auction method.

The Bushey team were busy over the Christmas period with the Boxing Day launch of over a dozen properties to the portals to ensure our vendors are ahead of the January rush.

We have been booking in viewings for the keenest buyers starting first week of January.

Our Do Not Disturb campaign in its 7th year, has once again been a game changer for the vendors who wanted to market their property over the busy online Christmas period but without being disturbed for viewings during the family break.

We are super proud of our marketing strategies we use to engage buyers and vendors together to ensure the best introductions are made for both sides.

Please do not hesitate to contact one of the team if you would like to chat about the market or how we can help you to move on with your life journey or even just to get an idea of what your property is worth in the current market and the factors that affect it.

Get in touch today on 020 8958 1118 or 020 8950 7777.
