First impressions count, and particularly if you are selling your home. How the outside of your home looks can make a massive impact on what a potential buyer may think – if you give them the wow factor from the outside then they will be excited and hopeful for the viewing inside, but if you disappoint right from the offset then it will take twice as long to win the potential buyers over.
You have instructed your Estate Agent, your 3D virtual viewing has been filmed, the photographer has taken your photos, the for sale board is up, your Social media campaign is ready to go and the floorplans and site maps are done. All you now need to do is sit back and wait for viewings and an offer – it should be that simple, but for a successful sale there are things that you need to do too.

Getting busy for the festive fun? We mustn’t forget about our pets, as they are part of the family and can enjoy the festivities too. Whilst most of them like being pampered at Christmas when family and friends descend upon the home, it is important to try to keep them to as normal a routine as possible.

Channel 4’s decision to choose Leeds as its new national headquarters is great for this already vibrant city which is expected to move up to 800 staff and bring more than £1 billion to the region over the next decade. Channel 4 have already had some presence within the north, notably Countdown, Educating Yorkshire (in nearby Dewsbury) and Red Riding. However the independent production sector is strong and fast growing across the region – Emmerdale on ITV set up here in 1972. Channel 4 moving to this cultural city in the North will enrich people’s lives as well as bringing huge benefits to the region. As talent is moving away from London, Channel 4’s decision demonstrates the immense pulling power of the city.
