Think Christmas is a quiet time for people looking to move home? - you may want to think again! When looking to sell a property, people often think that the New Year is the best time to market their property, and it really is an excellent time, however there is a definite advantage to looking to market your home before Christmas and the New Year rush . Christmas is a time when family and friends are together, plans are formed for the next year and buying a new home, looking for a new job or moving to an area with a good school catchment area may all be on the horizons
I read with interest an article published today that the RICS this week have launched the new mandatory RICS Home Survey Standard, following an industry and consumer consultation held earlier this year.
The Help to Buy ISA was launched four years ago to help first time buyers who are hoping to buy a property. The scheme is designed to help you save for a mortgage deposit to buy a home. Savings are tax free

Dementia is one of the greatest challenges we face in society today – over 850,000 people are living with the disease with approximately 45,000 of this number under the age of 65 and over 225,000 people will develop dementia this year.

At our first meeting I was moved by the accounts relatives and carers gave whilst supporting loved ones living with this disease.

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.
As the Met Office issues a weather warning and I needed to scrape the ice off my car this morning, I was thinking that at this time of year there is not much you can do about the outside temperature, but there are things you can do to keep warm inside, and more importantly take advantage  of some little practical tips to stop the heat escaping and prevent burst pipes.
