Winter is well and truly here. The snow has again turned the Cotswolds into a magnificent winter wonderland and with Christmas just behind us and the New Year in sight, we reflect on a busy and productive year marketing some truly beautiful homes.
The Autumn market brought new properties and buyers out of the wood work, keen to get the ball rolling before Christmas.
The gardens were frosted and stunning, and whereas Spring enhances the blossoming trees and blooming flowers, the focus during these colder months is driven towards the interiors – warm and cosy fireplaces, Agas which help to create inviting kitchen/ breakfast rooms, ideal for large gatherings. Thoughtful lighting both indoors and outdoors is an advantage during the shorter winter days.
We have seen a surge in sellers and buyers who are ready to move, and with some excellent instructions coming to the market in the coming months, we are very excited for the year ahead.
The internet is stronger than ever and the market is reactive. The buyers are out there when you have the houses for them.
As ever, superb presentation and correct pricing is absolutely key. We believe strongly in exceptional and beautiful marketing - every home deserves special attention.
