Traditionally, summer is a quieter period in the UK property market. Spring has long been seen as the most active time of year and in summer, many people have more important things on their mind. With the summer of 2018 being a World Cup summer, there will be some people protesting that they have more important things to do than care about the property market, but the level of demand in and around the property market means that this is a year-round market.

It is fair to say that opinion is split on the level of interaction the Government should have in the UK property market. There are many people who believe that the Government should have as little influence on the market as possible, leaving market forces to their own devices. However, there are many people who say that the current market is unsuitable for a lot of households and this needs to be changed, which can only be driven by the Government.

Therefore, new Government measures to improve sales will divide opinion, but if they help more people get on to the property ladder, the actions will be deemed a success.

Getting away for the summer is a treat that many people look forward to all year round. A summer holiday is the ideal chance to relax and unwind, putting the stress and pressure of everyday life behind you. However, in order to fully switch off, it is essential that you are comfortable about what you leave behind. You want to make sure that you keep your property safe when you are away, and at Austin Property Services, we have some home security tips for you if you are going away this summer.

One thing you should bear in mind when you head off on summer holiday is minimising the amount of people that know your home is empty. Social media is a fantastic way to communicate with friends and family members but depending on your privacy settings, you may find that more people see your posts than you would like. Therefore, while airport bar pictures and poolside snaps may be great to make your friends jealous and let your family know you are having a brilliant time, they may act as an invitation to local burglars.
