Cambridgeshire agency claims ‘world’s first virtual open...

Thomas Morris Estate Agents has claimed the world’s first...

The property equivalent of online dating. Everyone is pretty much agreed that you wouldn't buy a property on the back of a virtual viewing anymore than you'd marry someone without meeting them, so what exactly is the point? I absolutely agree in the importance of innovation, but not if it is innovation for innovations sake. If the net result is that it adds nothing to your business or the experience of your customers, why would you do it? I'm just off to paint myself purple and stand upside down on Tower Bridge whilst blowing a harmonica with my bottom. It's a world first, don't you know?

‘Do not rush ahead with immigration checks’...

The head of lettings at Carter Jonas has warned...

There is definitely an argument that introducing these new checks too quickly will overwhelm landlords and letting agents who aren't yet fully versed on what the new measures actually mean. This needs to be done gradually, bit by bit, rather than rushed through in order to show the government are acting decisively for once.

RLA calls for clampdown on criminal landlords...

The Residential Landlords Association (RLA) is calling on ministers...

Much more needs to be done to eradicate rogue landlords and the minority of criminals who take pleasure out of making money out of other people's misery. By the same token, we have to keep a sense of perspective. As the article states, this is a small minority, it shouldn't be used as a stick with which to bash landlords as a whole. The government's words seem a bit hollow, though, because they've not done a great deal on this measure since they've been in power. Hopefully that will change. Until then, I'll be viewing developments with a healthy dose of scepticism.

I've always like the idea of buying a property...

When buying my property abroad in Majorca, I found looking earlier on in the year was more convenient in terms of there was no rush in the process. I even managed to go there during the winter time to actually view the apartment. Come March it was all done! Now I have a holiday home and a rental accommodation for when i am not there! As long as you do your research properly you should be fine! It is worth the hassle. All the best!

Some really great points here, let's be honest, who wouldn't view avocado coloured furnishings as a regrettable choice! The garden, whatever its size should always be a focal point when selling or letting a property, so a little rejuvenation in the form of some newly laid grass or paving is never a bad choice. A well-kept garden will often be a deal-breaker in securing a sale/tenants!
