It’s nearly Spring, a time we all tend to reflect on the next chapter of our lives. Working in property, I continually question whether buying a home for the first time or moving up market is the right advice for first timers. After 30 years I can confidently say that no matter what the government does to increase taxation, stamp duty or mortgage rates, getting onto the housing ladder is always sound advice. In 2016 demand for housing continues to increase, whilst there continues to be a shortfall in supply. So, at Malcolms, throughout March and April we are providing personal consultants to help find you a home and guide you through the process.

Can’t find the house you’re looking for?
If you’ve been endlessly scouring the internet for houses, but still can’t find your dream home, let us help. Send us your property requirements and we’ll do the hard work. We will proactively search for your ideal home; advertising for your ideal property and keeping our ear to the ground for opportunities of suitable properties coming on the market.

First Time Buyer
Buying your first home should be an exciting experience, and need not be daunting and stressful. Talk to an expert at Malcolms.

First Time Seller
There are less investment buyers. Is it going to be more difficult to sell your home? Not at Malcolms!
From April 1st the Government is changing the taxation rules for second home owners and Buy to Let investment buyers. At Malcolms, we are proactively attracting first time buyers to fill this void. Include your property in our forthcoming First Time Buyers events and London Exhibition to make sure you get the best price and reach more buyers. We are offering discounted selling fees and a special conveyancing package.

First Time Tenant

We encourage our landlords to present their properties to a high standard, so you can have a choice of quality properties. Our professional photographic inventories will give you piece of mind and all our properties are professionally cleaned before you move in. Your deposit is independently held by the Government backed Deposit Protection Service – www.depositprotection.com

We are on hand if there is a problem during your tenancy and have a list of approved local contractors. During our special events throughout March and April we will be offering administration discounts.

At Malcolms, we believe a happy tenant leads to a happy landlord.

First Time Landlord

We treat your investment as if it is our own. Despite the government’s attempts to quell the Buy to Let Market, we believe that demand is still growing from tenants looking for good quality accommodation. We will advise you how to maximise your investment, both short and long term. To find the best tenant, we advertise on both Rightmove and Zoopla, as well as in our prominent High Street Offices where tenants are visiting daily seeking a home. Once a tenant is found we use an external referencing and application agency to ensure they are financially sound and their “right to rent”.

We provide an on-line photographic inventory from Infuma protecting you and your property. Inspections are carried out after the first 4 weeks, and then every three months, all accessed on-line with Infuma.

First Timers London Exhibition

On 5th April 2016 we will be hosting a First Timers Event in our Park Lane Office, London. With excellent rail links from Cambridge, Huntingdon and St Neots, Cambridgeshire offers exceptional value for money for London workers. Our Huntingdon and Cambourne Offices will be hosting the event and our staff will be giving professional, informative advice about our properties.

I hope my blogs will always be of interest, informative and for the most part light hearted. Over the years I have seen the strangest of events affecting the property market and my blogs will generally be about seasonal, political or current social trends affecting house sales.
