Experienced ‘movers’ are powering the property market.

Only 12 months ago, it was widely recognised that first time buyers were charged with driving the property market from the bottom up, allowing other owners to make their own move to a larger house.

These days however, the squeeze on mortgage lending is seeing a dramatic shift in the different criteria surrounding peoples’ moving plans. Corona Virus and lockdown have certainly changed the dynamics of the housing market. Many more experienced movers are considering their own personal circumstances, for instance now that they may be working from home. This leads to a change in the mindset toward properties that provide more space and potentially a garden, instead of the the traditional city center residence close to the office.

First time buyers in contrast, are being squeezed by the new rules on the tightening of the mortgage market, demanding higher deposits and secure employment. The result is that the market is being inundated at present with movers who have more disposable income. Pent up demand and government incentives such as the stamp duty holiday are also helping to fuel sales right now. Fortunately and only for some, it would appear this is only possible if you have the initial capital available.

Testimonials

Joe has provided a 5 star service. My mum’s rental property has stood vacant for some time as she has had an extended stay in hospital. He met me at the property within days of making contact, and found us a tenant within 3 days! He even treated the weeds, fixed a broken window and sorted out the safety checks for me. It took all of the pressure off and was a very friendly and professional service. I would highly recommend!

As a tenant, the service I received from Joe was extremely quick and professional. Everything I asked about was dealt with prior to me moving in and he is very responsive to any queries I may have. I would highly recommend Target Property Services NE.

My property was on the market with 3 other agents for over 2 months without any success. To be honest I felt they weren’t even trying. I thought I would give Target Property Services an opportunity to market my luxury quayside apartment as I had heard good reviews about them. Within 24 hours of them listing the apartment to let, they had 2 viewings booked in and within a week a new tenancy had been agreed. First class service at a very competitive price that puts others to shame, plus an unrivaled personal touch that cannot be found with any of the better known high street estate agents. I am now very happy for Target Property Services NE to market and manage all my property portfolio. Highly recommend.

Joe has been our landlord for 5 years now and we cannot be happier. Renting from him has been an absolute pleasure. He is professional, helpful and caring, and if we ever have a problem, he is there to sort it out quickly and efficiently. The house we rent from him is lovely, and safety checks and boiler servicing are carried out regularly. We feel very much at home and cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you Joe.
