for sale board

 

While there is no denying the importance of online property portals and online estate agents in the modern property market, it would be wrong to suggest that everything involved with the selling process should be carried out online. There are a number of traditional activities and aspects of selling property that still have a place in the present day and this includes a For Sale board. Here are some of the key benefits of having a For Sale board.

 

interior design

 

While some people have their own personal taste and style which they are determined to stick to at all times, there are many people who like to know the latest trends when it comes to interior design. Whether this means someone is looking to overhaul their home in a comprehensive manner or they are just looking to add a few modern trends alongside more traditional aspects depends on the individual, but there is no getting away from the importance of knowing what the current interior design trends are for 2017.

The smallest town in Worcestershire may have a population of less than 3,000 people but there is still a lot to enjoy about Upton Upon Severn. This is an area that had a huge level of importance in ancient times due to its port and bridge, making it a key area for transport and travel, and while those halcyon days are no longer the case, this is still an area that has plenty to offer. 

 

mortgages

 

First time buyers should know that obtaining a mortgage is a challenge but there is no reason to think this is an impossible task. If you’re looking to get on to the property ladder, this is a mortgage guide for first time buyers.

 

Rental yields

Upton Upon Severn has a unique claim to fame in that it has been recognised as the smallest town in the county of Worcestershire. The census of 2011 stated the population stood at 2,881 and at just 5 miles from Malvern, there is a lot to be said for life on the west bank of the Severn.

It may not be an area of ‘hustle and bustle’ but there is demand for property in the local area. This includes tenants looking for a property to rent and investment opportunities available for landlords who are looking to add to their portfolio.

When looking at property investments, it is important to consider rental yields because this is the platform for deciding whether an area is of interest or merit to a landlord.

Just the other day, we were on our way to see some family in our dirty car and it got us thinking. Many years ago we noticed that more and more people were using new drive through car washes at the nearest petrol garage because this saved you time. This also meant that you didn’t have to do it yourself and get your hands wet.

Our main objective is to ensure that everything is just right from the start. So, whether it is the photography, producing quality details or even producing a high quality brochure we want to make sure that we live up to our reputation. A little bit like the car wash as we mentioned a few moments ago, now people tend to use a hand car washing service so it just goes to show that the traditional methods are often the best.
