At a time when international travel is restricted by the pandemic, our desire to travel is probably at its peak. Most would jump at the opportunity for some sunshine and sightseeing in far flung places. However, whilst some things are better enjoyed in their native country, you can be inspired and create an international vibe at home. Everyone has a dream destination, so create your own corner of Italy, South America, Asia or wherever with colour, patterns, textures and accessories and let your imagination take flight.

Spring 2021 looks to be the strongest Spring for property sales in the past ten years and if you are thinking of selling here’s why it could be a good time to do so. Demand is currently outweighing supply with a record number of potential buyers per property on the market – up 34% on the same period in 2020, which itself was buoyant, prior to lockdown. The number of sales agreed is up 12% on last year with potential buyers ready and waiting to view properties new to the market.

Or could you just fall in love with your own home all over again?

If you are moving to a new home or just looking to refresh where you currently live, now is a great time to do it. The new year gives us all the momentum for a spring clean and a chance to look at things afresh whether buying, renting or staying put. Some may see renting as a barrier to this, as restrictions may limit what you can do, but all it takes is a little inspiration to transform your home from bland to beautiful without upsetting the landlord and without splashing cash you will not get back if you are moving.

Following the recent lockdown announcement, you may be wondering whether you can still move house.

Property viewings, valuations and all other property related matters can carry on as before, and we continue to follow strict Covid 19 protocols to ensure that you, and our staff, feel safe during any property visits.
