Brexit, the housing market and self-storage

With Article 50 now triggered and negotiations progressing (or not depending on your view!), the nation is holding its breath and is desperately looking for clues as to how things will pan out. This has led to a little bit of uncertainty which is feeding through to the housing market. What has been a buoyant confident market has changed into one of caution with people waiting before they commit. This caution is leading to a slowdown in prices and for the first time in years the lenders are predicting a fall in prices. A slow down can lead to chains forming that can take months to complete and can have the risk of collapsing at any minute.

This is where self-storage could come to the aid of house movers.  A strategy of completing on your sale and moving in with friends and family short term while putting your possessions in self-storage can keep chains short. This will put you the buyer in a position of strength when it comes to buying the home of your dreams. Not only will you be chain free with cash in the bank, you will most likely save money as the cost of self-storage is cheaper than running a home!
