The latest news is that Home Information Packs are no longer required to begin marketing a home for sale.
There is still a requirement for an Energy Performance Certificate however; this is not needed to start with and can be included following the marketing launch.
Accurate pricing is still essential as buyers are well aware what sold for what (and when) and can access this information through various websites.
The general message?
Strong market still underpinned by a relative lack of supply.
