The Wigan Property Market Is Waking Up ....But Are You ?

According to a BBC report, people across the UK are struggling to get a good night’s sleep since the Covid-19 outbreak began.

Researchers from King’s College London interviewed more than 2,254 UK residents aged between 16-75, and the findings were fascinating – more newsworthy than snoozeworthy.

The survey suggests more than half of the population have had problems sleeping since the outbreak.

Concerns keeping people up included money worries, health fears and general anxiety about the future.

And disturbed sleep is a vicious circle as the researchers explained. Dr Ivana Rosenzweig said: “Stress can cause sleepless nights. And feeling tired and irritable can cause more stress, so it’s a damaging cycle.”

Tips for a Good Night’s Sleep
If you’re struggling to reach the land of nod, try these four tips from sleep expert Dr Simon Kyle.

1. Avoid caffeine – Consuming tea, coffee, soft drinks or even chocolate late in the day can keep you up at night.
2. Knock napping on the head – Resist the urge to have a lockdown siesta – you’ll regret it later that evening.
3. It’s a blackout – Simply lying down undisturbed in a dark bedroom can help ease you into a deeper, more refreshing sleep.
4. The great outdoors – exercising, especially outdoors, has many benefits, including helping your mind and body relax. But don’t overdo it in the evening. This can have the opposite effect by over-stimulating your brain.

Rise and Shine
After the first couple of phases of the lockdown have been eased the property market in Wigan has woken up brightly.
We’re now seeing great interest levels from buyers and sellers keen to move on after months after uncertainty.

Selling your home can be a stressful experience, here our top three tips to help you rest easier at night during the process.

1. Choose a good estate agent
The cheapest is rarely the best option so invite three around to your home to value it.
Choose the one who clearly demonstrates how they will achieve the best possible price and who you trust the most to have your best interests in mind at all times.

2. Get your paperwork in order
Being organised as early in the selling process as possible will mean you won’t get sleepless nights wondering where warranties or legal documents are.

3. Book your removals company in advance
Good removals companies are often busy so ensure you give yourself plenty of time to get quotes and pencil them in ahead of your completion day.

We have plenty of expert advice to help soothe any selling stress you might have based on over 35 years of experience in the Wigan Property Market.

Ps don’t check your phone or social media just before you go to bed
