If you’re wanting a quicker and smoother sale then Autumn is a good season to put your house on the market. Why? Well here are four reasons…
Less Competition: At this time of the year there are fewer houses hitting the market so that means your property will go up against less competition in the search for the perfect buyer and it will stand out on listings websites.
You Only Get Serious Buyers: With the year heading towards Christmas and New Year, a lot of people want to feel settled by this time so you’ll only get serious buyers looking to purchase a property. They want to get a deal done quickly to allow them time to get the keys before Santa comes.
Kerb Appeal Doesn’t have to be Perfect: Due to the changing weather you can get away with the front of your house not looking perfect. Also, at this time of year people get emotional when house hunting as they want a cosy, atmospheric property they want to spend Christmas in.
During Autumn You Might Have a Smoother Transaction: All parties involved in a house sale have less going on in the autumn; mortgage lenders don’t have as many loans to process, surveyors aren’t as busy and solicitors/ layers have fewer completions and exchanges to handle – you’re almost guaranteed a quicker and smoother sale.
So there you have it, 4 reasons why it could be a good idea to sell your home during Autumn.If you have any questions about getting your house ready for sale during Autumn then please get in touch as I’d be delighted to help you out. Get in touch today!

After a long day, there’s nothing like the feeling of relaxing in a stylish comforting bath. And to unwind in beautiful surroundings. Do you have your perfect bathroom? Let’s take a look at these stunning ideas by Arthur Anthony Interiors.
Teuco inaugurates a brand new comprehensive range by imagining the “total look” of your bathroom. A matching suite designed by the same hand, devised to blend in with any setting thanks to the flexibility of the solutions available. Design plays the starring role and creates a strong styling identity that reaches far beyond the mere functionality of the fixtures. Hence the development of significant collections.
Perfectly designed forms that are neither intrusive nor dominating, therefore leaving ample room for both individuality and design. Products that appear perfectly proportioned from every angle and can simultaneously fulfill individual ideas. ME by Starck is the result and the framework for your own personal style, whether it be pure, elegant, natural, or completely individualistic.

Hansgrohe helps you transform your bathroom and kitchen into havens of well-being; for an exhilarating start to the day and a relaxing end to it. Because we are in love with water.

The most important room in any home without a doubt has to be the kitchen. This is the heart of any home and it’s where we love to socialise and cook our favourite meals. I’m seeing so many people turning their separate dining rooms and kitchens into one large open space.
The ideas for your kitchen are endless. I’m always taken back by peoples creations and how they mix up their choice of ovens and hobs. Mixer taps that are unique and inspired work tops. A wine rack and beer fridge are also my favourites.
The possibilities are endless, I love this rounded style in a galley shaped kitchen. It really makes the feel almost seamless.
A kitchen island with bar stools can be great when socialising with friends, or just to sit in the morning enjoying breakfast. I love the added touches of the lights in this kitchen. It gives it great character. A great place to have party’s.
The brick wall really sets this kitchens feel, reminds me of the Master Chef kitchen on TV, a very airy space to put your culinary skills to the test, I also love the contrast of the Brown and white units on display here. What are your favourite colours? Will they work in the kitchen? I’d love to see your kitchens and what inspired you.
These chandelier type lights and studded bar stools add a touch of class. A lovely blend also of white and grey cabinet doors really set this kitchen off.
I hope that I have inspired you with a few of my favourite types of kitchens. It’s fair to say that the possibilities are simply endless. But creating the space you want is important. And it makes us feel good when we are socialising or just enjoying a nice cuppa.

If there’s one thing we love about the living room in our houses, it has to be a lovely warm homely fire place. On a cold day you can’t beat sitting in front of the fire with a hot drink or even a glass of wine. Take a look at these fire places and let me know which ones you like the best. Also I’d love to see your living room centre pieces.
Here is 6 fireplaces that all look great in the right environment. These all set off a living room and add that touch of class, certainly from a selling point of view it has to be said that everyone will notice these fine masterpieces. And will certainly add more value and more desire to your home.
A big thanks to Phoenix fire places in Battles bridge for the great photos.
As we come almost to the end of the year, I wanted to compare the house prices over the last 12 months in 3 different areas of Brentwood. Today I’ve gone with Pilgrims Hatch, Shenfield and Warley. Three great suburbs of our lovely Brentwood. There is certainly a good mix of homes in these areas.
All these 3 suburbs have around a population of 6000.
How much would a flat cost over the last year in these 3 areas of Brentwood? Below is a chart giving the average prices over the last year.
What is the average price of a semi detached home over the last 12 months in these 3 Brentwood suburbs.
What is the average price of a detached home over the last 12 months in these 3 Brentwood suburbs.
Next month I’m going to look at the smaller villages set around Brentwood.
Today I’ve been looking at properties for the First time buyers, getting on the property ladder is certainly not easy, but with 2 good incomes this can easily be achieved. So I’ve put together a small guide to help those thinking of making the big leap into home ownership.
1. One Bedroom house
This home costing £230,000 would need a deposit of £23,000, so over 25 years at an interest rate of 2.4% would cost £919 per month
2. One bedroom end of terraced home
This home costing £10,000 more than the first one, with a 10% deposit of £24,000 would cost £959 per month over the 25 years at 2.4%
3. Two Bedroom terraced home
Finally I have chosen this Two bedroom home, with a 10% deposit of £28,000 the mortgage over 25 years at 2.4% would be costing around £1,118 per month,
I hope that helps people to understand the price that you’d expect to pay.
