Designers Winter is Coming, Make it Work! 

So maybe you’re not as big of a fan of project runway as I am, but after two lockdowns, something had to go on in the background while we all had those now dreaded work-from-home days!  Today we’re talking about home staging for when your house is on the market and you’re trying to sell […]

November 2020 Market Update

November 2020 Market Update

What a month – with two major news stories within hours of each other that are likely to have a positive effect on the UK housing market: the US election result, and the discovery of a Covid-19 vaccine. We know that stability and confidence underpin so much in the economy – jobs, inflation, interest rates, […]

The system of property transfer in this country is relatively archaic when compared to those of most other countries. The variety of age and tenure of UK property forms a complex framework on which sit further complications such as easements, rights of way, restrictive covenants, planning restrictions, building consents, possessory titles and disputed boundaries. Despite […]

The Key Issue

The Key Issue

One of our distinctions, and indeed our passion, is the fact that we are as involved in our clients’ move as we are in their sale. Certainly, for most people the property into which they are moving is a lot more exciting than the property they are about to leave. Yet on moving day itself, […]

The problem is the source of data that is used to make assumptions about the market is fickle. For example, you could look at the latest Land Registry figures. These record […]

Deposit Confusion

Deposit Confusion

One of the property terms that can be confusing is the word “deposit”, especially among first-time buyers who have previously been renting. For example, consider this statement: “When Jake got his deposit back, he had enough for his deposit, although this was not enough to cover his deposit.” What??? There are at least three uses […]

In the current market, if you are to maximise your price, it is more important than ever to ensure that your property is a highly saleable proposition, rather than one that makes another house look good by comparison. Of course, there are several basics that should be in place. The price needs to be as […]

October 2020 Market Update

October 2020 Market Update

To say estate agents are busy would be an understatement. The unprecedented uplift in buyer demand over the past three months certainly bucks any notion of pandemic paralysis. Rightmove tells us that buyer enquiries are up 14% annually and sales agreed are just 5% below this time last year – which is pretty remarkable under […]

Accept the offer?

Accept the offer?

When you are keen to move house it can be tempting to accept the first buyer who comes along with an attractive offer. However, buyers come in all shapes and sizes, and it is important to assess your purchaser’s ability to perform before accepting any offer. We often receive offers from people who themselves have […]
