I have a habit of checking out the local estate agent web sites and looking up any houses that are near to me. With the new fashion of not advertising with a for sale board, the only way of knowing who’s moving is by the same route – online. I am staggered at the difference in prices of some nearby properties. We have basically 7 different design of house here, but all similar in that they are comfortable executive style 4 or 5 bedroomed detached all with double garages. The 5 bedroomed have smaller master suite to enable the 2nd bedroom to be ensuite. The house size is very similar so it’s a compromise. Most of these recent additions to the sales list have had work carried out to enhance the look – although none have taken my fancy. Additional lighting and clear light from windows seems to be the best way to sell a property. As it always has.
