The Spring market is on its way!


How quickly these things come around - with the Easter bank holiday just around the corner, we're about the enter the peak period of the year from a property market point of view.  If a move is on your mind, now is the time to act to get an up to date valuation and some good honest advise about the best way to approach the market.  We've got a number of properties in a 'market ready' position, with savvy sellers putting themselves in a much stronger buying position and ready to hit the market at the push of a button.  If you'd like to discuss how this works, give us a call or pop in to the Didsbury branch.  As always, there's some great local events happening over the coming weeks and I've detailed a few of my favourites below.  Just another reminder why its so great to be in Manchesters most sought after suburb!

Has flexible working changed the Didsbury property market?

Defining the modern working week in 2018 isn’t a straightforward process. As we embrace technology, the lines between daily commutes to work and working from remote locations become less transparent. From a property perspective, this means people with flexible working patterns can be more selective about the location of their next home. But what does this mean for Didsbury?
