How to Prepare for a New Home in 2022

Let’s be honest, 2020 was a miserable write-off for most of us due to the pandemic.

And 2021 has been a slog with the Covid-19 fallout, energy price hikes, and fuel queues that make the lines outside shops during traditional New Year sales look like child’s play.

But there is good news on the horizon, especially if you are thinking of moving home in the new year.

The property market in the North Cotswolds remains strong. We’re still seeing plenty of activity as people continue to evaluate what they want from their humble abodes.

Below are three things you can do to take advantage of the current situation, sell successfully, and make your move in 2022.

  • Get ready – If your goal is to be in a new home in January or February, get odd jobs around the house sorted, organise your property’s paperwork (guarantees, warranties etc.) and begin decluttering. In our experience, nearly everyone has too much stuff.
  • Call in the agents – Call in three estate agents to give you a valuation. Don’t be swayed purely by the highest valuation. Look for a good track record, a clear marketing plan, and listen to your gut instinct.
  • Change your mindset – If you’ve made up your mind and are sure you want a new home in the new year, start thinking like a prospective buyer. Ask your friends (especially the ones who always speak their minds) what they think of your home and how you can make it more appealing.
