Have you noticed a recent increase in the number of ‘For Sale’ signs in your area?
The Scottish property market set to be even busier due to the tax change in April. Under the rates proposed in the incoming LBTT system, any sales above £254,000 will incur a higher rate of tax compared with the current stamp duty structure, introduced in December in the Autumn Statement by George Osborne. For properties in the prime market, the cost will be significantly higher.
If you have been thinking about moving, now appears to be a good time. Selling, packing and moving can prove to be very stressful, however with a bit of smart planning and a good strategy, your new year move can be a straight forward one.
When putting your home on the market, it can be tempting to overlook any necessary renovations by putting all of your clutter in a cupboard and letting the post-Christmas property push work its magic. However tempting it may be, you may end up losing out on all the monetary potential that your home has to offer.
It’s not just about kerb appeal!
Showing off the very best of your home interior is one of the most important parts of selling. How do you do this? By spending time de-cluttering and cleaning your home you could potentially gain thousands on your property value and encourage a quicker sale.
After Christmas, storage space may be more scarce than usual. Here at Len’s Self Storage we offer flexible short term solutions to any storage issues you may have with up to 50 different sized lockers and units. When putting your home on the market, self-storage is an inexpensive way to ensure that you get the best value out of you home.
Packing up a house can be stressful, that’s why we also have our very own Van and Driver service to help you move any of your items into self-storage. We also have our own range of packaging and boxes available (including eco-friendly solutions!)
If you are in Glasgow we have convenient storage facilities in Hillington and Kinning Park in and for Edinburgh you can choose from our Granton and Sighthill locations. All four locations are located within minutes of the M8.
