Good news property owners! The Edinburgh Solicitors Property Centre (ESPC) has reported in their October 2014 report that the housing market across Edinburgh, the Lothian’s and Fife has continued to improve during the three months leading to October.
According to the ESPC, market activity across the region is now at its highest level since 2007, with sellers becoming more active too. Furthermore, selling times have shortened, with the median selling time down from 9 weeks 1 year ago to 6 and a half weeks this year.
That isn’t the only thing that’s changing. Interior modernisation offers more streamlined and minimalist décor throughout homes. While minimalism is now the vogue, many homes are without ample storage space with no sign of a garage, loft space or walk in cupboards.
What does this mean for buyers and sellers? The gap between moving from one property to another is shortening! This upward trend in the market means that self-storage is as important as ever. While the gap shortens, you may find there is less time to sell unwanted items in your home, or renovate existing items.
If you’re a new buyer or have decided to move into your dream home, you may have more items than you would like. More often than not, they hold a special sentimental value. You want to keep your knick knacks that you’ve collected, but you also don’t want them to clutter your individual, well-chosen style.
Self-storage aims to act as an ideal stop gap while you move. At Len’s Self Storage, our shorter term contracts mean that as soon as your settled, you can resume where you left off with your property – whether that’s listing it to sell online, or giving it away to a family or friend.
