The Bank of England and its Governor Andrew Bailey have decided to freeze the base interest rate again this month, keeping it at 5.25%

Rates remain at 5.25% but inflation is heading towards 2% which all-but guarantees a welcome cut soon.

UK inflation has fallen to 3.4% which is the lowest in nearly two years.

Spring has sprung and now is a good time to put your house on the market as the better weather always brings out new buyers. Here are a few tips that will help secure a good buyer.

First impressions count so make the outside look cherished. A power wash can make a huge difference and hiding the wheelie bins always helps.

Try and keep a parking space free so that prospective buyers aren't put off by having to park two streets away.

Make sure every room has an obvious function, whether it's a playroom, study etc.

If your house has an obvious flaw, such as a kitchen that is very small, it might be an idea to find a builder to give you a realistic estimate for knocking through a wall or adding an extension and let any prospective know.

Not everyone likes animals so if you have a viewing, it might be as well to remove any cats, dogs, snakes etc.

Do the basics, fill vases, light fires and pay attention to parking.

Hopefully this will help secure a speedy sale to a really good buyer.

The Bank of England has left the interest rate at 5.25%.

Customer Reviews

  • We are 100% satisfied and cannot recommend Fox Estates strongly enough. The team were extremely professional, friendly, and approachable from the minute we asked for a valuation right until completion. Their knowledge of the local area was spot on and made the difference on the sale of our house. We are grateful to Chris in particular for his attention to detail, responsiveness to emails and a willing pro-activeness to help keep things moving. I would not hesitate in recommending Fox Estates to my friends and family..

  • Chris Fox put my house on the market on June 13th and advised me to have an open house. 26 people viewed the property and I had 6 really good offers. By 3rd of August we had completed!Chris guided me through the sale with professionalism, integrity, friendliness and his extensive knowledge which can only come from spending 35 years doing a job he is still clearly passionate about.

  • During my career I have come across many estate agents and Chris really is a true professional, with the highest standards of integrity and professionalism I have seen. As well as having referred him to my own clients and had excellent feedback, I have personally used Chris to sell my property and I have been extremely impressed, and would recommend him to everyone.

  • I instructed Chris to sell my house and when he found a buyer the sale went through in just over 6 weeks. His service was excellent and I would recommended him to anyone. A few months later my mum instructed him to sell her house and again he found a buyer and the sale progressed to completion without a problem. Chris is very knowledgeable and professional and he will give you a very helpful, friendly and attentive service. If you are thinking about buying or selling I would suggest you give him a call

  • I employed Chris Fox to sell my parents home when my mother died last year. He handled the sales with professionalism and respect for my family.

I would recommend Chris Fox wholeheartedly.
