🏠 Adjust your television: Did you know that reducing the brightness and contrast on your television could save up to £100 per year?
🏠 Prepare your meals in advance: Save money and time by spending a few hours each week preparing your meals for the days ahead. The meals can then be frozen and reheated throughout the week for an easy dinner – and to save the temptation of eating out when you’re too tired to cook.

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.
