At David Phillip Estate Agents, we are delighted that we have been given the green light by the Government to recommence selling properties in North Leeds which includes the undertaking of market appraisals and viewings, however, our delight is edged with some caution. As your local trusted Estate Agent we fully understand that we have a social responsibility to all our clients and this is something that we take very seriously. We also understand and recognise that as a buyer or seller you will also have growing concerns given the ongoing situation of Covid-19. Although some restrictions have been lifted, Covid 19 is still very much here and the way we undertake our business is absolutely key for our team, our clients, but also for the companies we work in partnership with. What was considered normal previously to Covid-19, no longer applies – we are now working with the ‘new’ normal

I read with interest that the Government has announced an initiative to use Proptech (Property technology) to ‘digitally transform house buying’ – this will help to speed up how we buy and sell homes. Having previously worked in the agile world of advertising and marketing in my opinion this is not before time.

We opened David Phillip Estate Agents towards the end of 2018 – my previous background has always been in sales and marketing, and Estate Agency is a totally new experience for me, so… what have I learnt in a my first year.

Recently we have listed a few properties that either already have dressing rooms or have the potential for adding or converting a room to a dressing room. If you are a clothes enthusiast but are short on storage space, then a dressing room could be just the thing for you. Adding a dressing room adds to your clothing space considerably whilst also giving you the freedom to organise your clothing, accessories and shoes in a way that is easily accessible, this can make getting ready for work or a night out stress free and also much easier, it can also make your clothes look nicer and last longer too. Having a dressing room eliminates clutter in your sleeping area and storing your clothes elsewhere will contribute to a cleaner and healthier environment – you will also get a better night’s sleep. Having a dressing room is your own private sanctuary where you can enjoy privacy and comfort, put on your make-up or unwind after a busy day.
The property Portal on the Market has found that if you live on a street with a name that is regal or titled, such as Royal, Place, Lord and Bishop it can boost the value of their homes lining their pavements.
When it comes to moving home, you may already have decided the type of property you would like, your price range, the quality of the schools in the area if you have children and the commute to work, these are all key factors. People often overlook though the culture of an area, what the community really stands for, what the local shopping and entertainment is like, in other words, home is where the heart is but what if your heart doesn’t quite know where that place should be? Lesa Brown, a Director at David Phillip Estate Agents commented “The UK housing market is highly localised and only by thoroughly researching individual areas, communities and streets can you be confident you are making the right decision to put an offer on a house – fail to do the research and you may have bought something you may want to move on from pretty quickly, which will be costly both financially but also in terms of emotional investment too”.
