Are you thinking of selling your property? Now is a great time to put your home on the market and make the most of the Stamp Duty Holiday extension. You need to be quick to make your property attractive to buyers who will be wanting to take advantage of this brilliant benefit, and with a current average time of 6 months from putting your property on the market to completion you’ve got until the end of March to upload your home on Houso and start marketing.
Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced in the Spring 2021 Budget the extension to Stamp Duty Holiday – what this means to a home buyer is if you are buying a property up to the value of £500,000 you will not pay any stamp duty if your purchase is completed by 30th June; if you are buying a property valued at £250,000 you will not pay any stamp duty until the end of September; and the usual threshold of £125,000 will return on the 1st October.
It takes less than 3 minutes to complete and post a listing on Houso – and it’s totally free! You can choose to work with a trusted estate agent or handle the sale of the property yourself. We are working to revolutionise the property market with Houso – our team have all faced challenges of buying and selling our homes, and we found common denominators (such as buyers pulling out, not having enough time to find a new home before moving) which we aim to smooth out in the way Houso works.
All you need to do to help your property sell on Houso is:
- Take photos of your property (see our guide here)
- Write a detailed description and add information about your home
- If you can, offer a video tour of the house
All completed listings are promoted on Houso social media – at no cost to you. Whaaaaaaaaat! We know, we’re pretty awesome. If you have uploaded images and have a full description, we promote your home on our Facebook and Instagram channels, and you will be featured in our weekly Houso of the Week mailshot meaning your property will reach THOUSANDS of people, so be prepared to start replying to those direct messages on the app!
Don’t delay putting your home on the market to ensure your property is available to those looking to buy within the Stamp Duty Holiday – download our FREE Houso App today to find your perfect home: for Android or Apple devices.
