We were pleased to read a couple of days ago via Rightmove that the Yorkshire and Humber area have seen a 5.1% increase in house prices year on year. Miles shipside, the Commercial Director of Rightmove commented:- “Owners coming to the market this Spring face the best-selling prospect for several years with good demand for the right properties at the right price However, he also warned that “sellers should be careful not to get carried away with their pricing, as this still is a price sensitive market with stretched buyer affordability – those who overprice miss out on a window of activity that could run to at least the next Brexit deadline at the end of the year” We totally agree with his sentiment on pricing, and although at David Phillip Estate Agents we price competitively, we also want to be realistic too. Some agents often over-price to win an instruction, only to see a price reduction after a couple of weeks.

Recently I have been delivering leaflets promoting David Phillip Estate Agents to the residents of Bramhope, and as I walked around this lovely area in North Leeds I was impressed with the number of beautiful Christmas wreaths adorning many of the properties. We also attended the switching on of the Bramhope Christmas lights this year, which is a great yearly tradition for the residents of Bramhope too. This got me thinking about the Christmas traditions that we have not only in the UK but also around the world – here are a few.

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.

Think Christmas is a quiet time for people looking to move? - think again. Every year Rightmove's traffic at least doubles between Christmas Day and Early January.

With bonfire night here, it is likely that you may be out visiting an organised bonfire. In Bramhope, we are lucky to have an organised display this evening where you can enjoy a night of family fun, food, fire and a professional firework Display. Entry from 6pm. However, there are a few simple precautions that you can take that should help keep burglars at bay whilst you are enjoying the fireworks

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.

The internet has brought all things to our fingertips from buying groceries, booking tickets and holidays and doing research about future things you would want to buy such as cars and homes. The internet though has also evolved as a place to read customer reviews, this can help people to determine the services and products they want to buy from people who have already experienced using that company. With more than 90% of all customers using online reviews as part of their research at a local and national level, this shows that merely informing a potential customer of the availability of a product or service is no longer enough – consumers want to hear about first hand experiences.
