Well, it is official, summer is here – it’s about time we had a good one, too! So, now it’s Wimbledon and strawberry teas and all the civilized, relaxing things that the British summer brings each year.  Until the kids’ summer holidays start and the whole thing swiftly descends into unmitigated chaos! From then on, it’s all about finding ways to keep those little ones entertained and out of trouble. So, before schools break up, best grab yourself a nice cool Pimms and a comfy chair and enjoy the peace.

Of course, in the property market, they’ll be no peace for us.  The start of summer is a very busy time as we try to get everything done before the summer slowdown begins towards the tail end of July. After that, the beach and the barbecue tend to push many people’s ideas of finding another home onto the back-burner.

Do you have Chimni?

The more you can get ready in advance, the faster your sale will progress and the more you can relax and enjoy your summer. We are delighted to be involved in trials of a new IT platform called Chimni. A Chimni log can help get a home ‘sale ready’ by helping you organise the documentation you will need to complete. As a Chimni Enabled Agent we will help by using the log to share digital copies of all the material we prepare and will pass a completed log to the new owner at handover. Visit www.Chimni.com for more information.

Latest Fabulous Instruction

We have just launched a spectacular, newly refurbished and extended house on Ashchurch Grove W12 with a summerhouse/office at the end of the landscaped westerly garden. There is excellent living space including a full width kitchen/breakfast room and also a full width high ceiling media/playroom plus 5 double bedrooms and 4 bathrooms (3 en suite). Please call Paul Cosgrove or myself for further details and viewings. It’s just gone up on our website – have a look! Take it form us – it is gorgeous and would be wonderful to own!

One thing that is particularly important at this time of year to both sales and lettings properties are those outside spaces. It doesn’t matter how big they are, just make sure they are looking their best, so prospective buyers can picture themselves using them to relax with friends and family for many years to come.

I think that will do from me for this month. I hope you get some weather to enjoy and I’ll see you next month.
