Most desirable property features

We’re passionate about properties and always looking to keep on top of what people want. What we expect from our homes is changing. New property developments, in particular, reflect that. The idea of a separate lounge, kitchen and dining room are becoming a thing of the past, with open, flowing designs often prevalent. Yes, sometimes this is to make the most out of a limited plot, but it is also showing a more integrated, free-form attitude to the way we live at home.

So, it’s often preferable to incorporate the kitchen, dining space and the lounge all into one larger, open space. If there is another nearby ‘spare’ room, this can be smaller and could be the ‘home office’. The rise of the internet (sounds like a dystopian Arnold Schwarzenegger movie) has led to a lot more people working from home, so a dedicated space in which to do so is seen as having real value.

The master bedroom still has real emphasis, and the inclusion of an en-suite is important. That fourth bedroom, still hard to find in older areas of housing, can put a disproportionate value on a property. Central heating and air conditioning, along with energy efficiency, are big factors, and there is also a certain level of technical outfitting that is expected in modern properties, with everything wired-in.

Finally, we’re still finding outside space as important as ever. But it’s not just enough to have it, people want to walk into something already usable. Patios, decking… it’s about having somewhere ready-made to spend time outside.

Clocks Spring Forward

Are you thinking it’s time for a change?

The clocks went forward at the weekend. Or was it back?

It never ceases to confuse me.

The good news is the clock in my car is now correct as I didn’t make the changes to it the last time we tinkered with our time pieces.

One thing I’m certain on however is that time is our greatest asset.

We can’t buy anymore of it, need to spend it wisely and we can save plenty of time and a lot of hassle by doing the right things with the right people.

That includes selling or renting your property with an agency which works hard for its clients and never clock watches.

Now’s a great time to start marketing your property as the summer months, longer days and lighter evenings arrive.

So if you’re thinking of selling or renting or just curious about your home’s value in the current market feel free to get in touch.

On that note my time’s up so I’ll catch up with you all soon.

Thanks for reading and if you have any property related questions please don’t hesitate contact us – we’d love to help you.
