Solihull Property Blog Week Seven

Moving home is simple, but hard. This week we launch our video series on helping you move home. I consider how gazundering can affect you and are local estate agents suffering from toxic positivity.

  2. What is gazundering, and how it affects you

  3. Toxic positivity. Let the stats do the talking and not the estate agents.

1. How to value your property like a PRO in 20 minutes!

The first in our video series is designed to help homeowners and sellers understand how to value their property. As a Chartered Surveyor with extensive experience in the property industry, I will be providing you with practical insights and tools that you can use to conduct your desktop study before estate agents visit your property.

2. What is gazundering, and how it affects you?

Gazunder: Verb: lower the amount of an offer that one has made to (the seller of a property), typically just before the exchange of contracts.

Check out our tips on how to avoid it HERE.

3. A tale of toxic positivity
