Have you been rattling around your big, old house for quite some time now? If so, downsizing might be the right thing to do.
A driving force for many to downsize is an empty nest. If the kids have grown up and moved on, having to look after a big, empty house can become a burden. Why would you waste time cleaning empty rooms and paying to heat them up every winter? If this sounds familiar to you, then moving to something smaller might be the right option.
Here at Mr Homes, we go to great lengths to stay at the helm of the industry, eager to work in a modern manner and support our customers. Having witnessed many trends over the years, nothing has impacted property as much as technology, with the way we search for, buy, invest and sell property being a far cry from the pre-internet days. But, what real advantages has the integration of modern technology had on the industry?
If you are looking to get on the property ladder, then Cardiff is certainly an attractive area to explore, currently going through a time of change. With many exciting commercial developments being carried out in the city, Cardiff is fast becoming an increasingly popular place to lay down your roots, with professional opportunities and rich culture sewn through the tapestry of the capital.
Which? analysed hundreds of thousands of property sales in England and Wales between September 2015 and 2016, and found that one in five properties (19%) had to be heavily reduced – meaning the initial asking price was reduced by 5% or more before they sold. They calculate that unrealistic and over-inflated valuations could be potentially losing sellers as much as £4.3bn and significantly slowing down the time it takes to sell a property.
Mr Homes Estate Agents Cardiff are pleased to announce the release of their FREE online valuation tool. Having researched property valuations, online and via portals we found that the only ones available were the major portals which then gave your valuation data to about 4-5 estate agents. Mr Homes wanted to develop something niche and offer the services without the hassle of having 4-5 estate agents fight over you, so we created our online valuation tool where your information and valuation stays with Mr Homes and Mr Homes alone.
Mr Homes Estate Agents of Cardiff is reaching completion on a massive investment into a bustling commercial building on Cowbridge Road West. Homes House a previously rundown and dis-used café which was a haven for litter and vandalism, has now formed part of a focal shopping area alongside Lidl and Home Bargains.
Making improvements to your home is not only a great way to refresh and revive old surrounds, but it’s often used as a way to maximise the value of your house and work your way up the property ladder.
Depending on how adventurous you’re feeling, you can make smaller improvements, such as redecorating, or you could move up the scale and undergo renovation projects to completely transform your home and potentially add greater value to it.
