Competing for attention..

07/11/2019
The skills we bring to the table, determine your results. We are paid on results and are focusing this week on incredible momentum in 2019.

It's time to turn the focus on 2020. The secret is to get permission. 'If I had a buyer, could I mention your place, or should I sell them something else?.

When you give us permission, we'll sort the marketing agreement, so we've got everything we need to bring your property to the market.

Think photos, floor plans, video tour, contacts and agency agreement.

Building relationships..

Renew your energy, focus on what matters, edit what doesn't..

Not every day will be at your best.

What matters most is that you make progress. Only one call away from booking that valuation, floor plans, video tour and pictures with the team. One buyer appointment away from putting the deal together and a new client away from having a key referrer that rapidly builds the business.

The scorecard is simple..

The best advice you'll ever get is 'go all in' when it comes to marketing your property with us this Summer.

Cultures that win have a 'learn it all' rather than a 'know it all' culture.

A great business uses checklists, visuals, dialogues and forms to streamline the selling process and consistent customer experience.

It's the perfect time for fresh thinking..

Right now, there is significant demand from buyers for all sorts of properties across South Manchester.

I strongly recommend getting out and visiting each of your next destinations, grab a coffee, have lunch, use public transport and enjoy the culture and community spirit available.

What's:
  • Sold
  • On the market
  • Under construction and not yet released
  • Not built 
So the question you should be asking is "Why not?" or "When are you getting started?".

Thursday focus..

We're a forward-thinking business and we've seen some serious momentum this week. The Bank Holiday and Summer holidays coming to an end for many returning home and instructing us to sell their properties.

Make sure you hook onto something that inspires you, something that you want so much, that it drives your every action. Be it a new property, a new location, new career path or schooling for your little ones.

It's easy to get stressed out when you see how far you've got to go.

Health first..

You can't buy it. It renews your energy, and people love it when you're at your best. You do more of the work that counts when you all feel good. So set about a daily plan that ensures you feel good more often.

The better my people are, the better the customer experience. The more happy customer I have, the more they bring future customers.

Business is simple. Learn to serve. listen, adapt and anticipate.

The heat is on. This is the time to focus and hit it out of the park.

Think luxury brands..

The most attractive quality of any human is someone who's super confident in their skin. Clients don't buy insecurities.

What they do buy is a great experience. We're already signing July valuations and new instructions in the coming weeks.  Can we help you? The secret is to help all new clients realise the importance that timing plays for the best sale price. 

Have you had your finance approved? (As the banks are working with a 3 -4 week lead time, so the properties you're looking at now, may well be sold well before your finance approval comes through.)

I only work with people I know who can dance on the dance floor.

We've been looking for you..

28/05/2019
We don't wait for conditions to be just right, for buyers to buy or sellers to sell. We create opportunity.

There are three elements to change:
  • Dissatisfaction
  • Vision
  • Making the first steps
People don't turn up to open days or enquire online because they're happy with their current property.

That's how we can help you by taking the market by storm by doing the basics that matter. We find sellers with a surplus asset, find a buyer who wants that asset and we bring it all together.

We keep it simple and we all love what we do..

Today's quote:

We have the energy, a clear process and make decisions with effortless glide. The success comes down to planning, daily actions that keep us in front when it comes to assisting you both selling and buying your next dream home.

Achieve your goals..

24/04/2019
It's clear to dominate any market, to kill it in any category you must:

  • Design for the customer
  • Upgrade customer experience
  • Accept the way we do it now, is not the way we'll do it in the future
  • Put more human in your transaction
  • We support many local sports teams & several charities
Change is coming. We demand more, yet receive less. Those that can add value in a meaningful way are the memorable ones, and ultimately the market leaders.

Selling properties in under 28 days, consistently listing and taking hold of the opportunities as they present themselves.

The busiest time of year..

17/01/2019
So opting for January will prove a sensible move. The wheels of work are well and truly back in motion after the Christmas break and eager buyers who struggled to secure a deal in the December wind-down are lying in wait. Town centre properties in particular tend to do well at this time because the streets are usually well lit and there’s less garden to keep tidy and continue to attract interest.

 

Fewer properties on the market means less competition and those who are looking tend to be serious about taking the plunge – so there are some very motivated buyers out there.

By getting in early you can beat the rush.

Where do we stat?

House price predictions 2019 Looking at the trends over the past few months, a number of experts believe house prices may grow more slowly over the coming year.

Property surveyors’ association RICS warns that house prices are unlikely to move at all in 2019, while property consultancy JLL puts growth at just 0.5% for the coming year. Estate agents and banks are a little more optimistic, with Savills predicting modest growth of 1.5% and Halifax estimating prices could rise anywhere between 2% and 4%.

However, there are a number of hard-to-predict factors that could influence price growth over the coming year.

There’s no crystal ball that can predict how house prices will move, but it can help to consider whether recent trends are likely to continue.

The best of the best..

03/01/2019

Maybe it’s time to think about buying new?

Save your energy 
New homes are greener and therefore more energy efficient – it’s roughly 50% cheaper to run a new build per year than the equivalent Victorian house. With a new build you’re guaranteed low C02 emissions, efficient boilers and quality insulation.

Good as new 
Upgrading an old home to same new build spec could cost you £45,000! The fact that your new home will be brand new (clue’s in name) when you move in means you won’t have to worry about the condition of it – it comes with a 10 year warranty to give you peace of mind.

No chain 
For anyone of you that’s been through the home-buying process before, you’ll know there’s nothing worse than when your dream home falls through thanks to a long chain! With a new build you can make yourself at home as soon as it’s complete, reducing the stress and uncertainty often associated with moving.

We'd love to talk to you and for you to start the journey with one of the team today on 0161 882 2233.

We're an Exceptional agent, the best of the best here in South Manchester, we employee full time members of staff to look after your biggest asset, have a far better and highly visible performance which in turn will almost inevitably lead to more views and increased level of activity when we're marketing your property.

So what do we do that the average estate agent doesn’t?

In simple terms, they do the ordinary things extraordinarily well.

  • We answer every call (on average 12% of calls go unanswered)
  • We answer every email/portal lead (on average 52% go unanswered).
  • We do both of these things with enthusiasm and rigour – following a process that’s great for the customer as well as extracting every opportunity for the business.
  • We list at the right price.
  • We implement an agreed marketing strategy that gets the listings under offer very quickly.
  • We progress the sale diligently and achieve a far lower fall through rate and therefore a far higher (and faster) completion rate too.

None of this is difficult in theory – but for some reason too many estate agents don’t do it in practice.

We'd love to talk to you and start the journey with the team today on  0161 882 2233.

The Summer sales are in full swing, with Marks & Spencer offering up to 60% off while John Lewis customers can buy many items at half price.  Big names such as H&M, Ted Baker and Dorothy Perkins are also offering discounts of 50% or more.

Many people think the traditional sales period are the time to shop for deals - this is not true.

First, you build it: then you work it, then you convert it.

Technology enables more powerful human interactions if used in the right way.  We play to our strengths and work the database we've got.     Here at JP & Brimelow our job is to find out what the problem is, help you discover the solution, then help you make more of the first steps.

A great piece this week from property expert Peter Knight from The Property Academy.
(The Property Academy provides Information, Insights, Ideas and Inspiration (four-i) for individuals and companies in the property industry).

One of the best EAs I know for tactical marketing is Eddie Ellis, owner of JP & Brimelow in Manchester.  

Last week, Eddie hosted one of our Mastermind Group meetings and a visit to his office resulted in the members leaving with coasters, supermarket trolley coins, umbrellas, reusable shopping bags, pens, you name it, Eddie has it all. 

JP & Brimelow have become famous for handing out umbrellas on rainy days, (make that most days as they're in Manchester), at strategic locations such as train stations - to date they've given away 18,532! This type of marketing is difficult to get an accurate ROI for but I've no doubt that it's been the reason why so many people in Chorlton and Didsbury choose Eddie and his team over the rest.

Local economic conditions appear to be the main drivers of house price performance, not national conditions.

Meanwhile as the Midlands and most areas in the North and Scotland are doing well price growth wise, we are seeing a "narrowing" of the North and South divide, which is likely to continue over the next few years.

The North West continues to top the league, even though its annual rate has declined to 3.9 per cent from 4.5 per cent last month.

Last year the majority of property sales in Chorlton Cum Hardy involved semi-detached houses selling for on average of £359,956. Terraced properties sold for an average of £307,982, while flats fetched in the region of £166,166.

With an overall average price of £290,730, its clear to see that demand is still high within the area and activity levels are matching those of 2017.

If you've decided that spring is the time to move, get your ducks in a row before you start: decluttering is essential, as is finishing any long-forgotten DIY jobs, but nothing is more important than sorting the mass of paperwork involved in a sale.  Some is down to you alone, some to your conveyancer or estate agent, but all needs your input and should be completed as early as possible to help seal the deal.  

Here's my checklist for you all.
  • Mortgage application
  • Property deeds
  • Freehold or Leasehold details
  • EPC (Energy performance certificate
  • Property information form
  • Fixtures and fittings form

How did you and your home fare through the great freeze? 


For some, the Beast from the East and Storm Emma offered a once-in-a-generation chance to have fun in the snow and go sledging.  For all of us, it was a once-in-a-generation chance to find out just how winter-proof our homes really are - or aren't.

It won't be long until you'll have the chance to see just how much this week might set you back - unless you've been glued to the ever-mounting numbers of your smart meter.

Transactions

There were 102,610 residential transactions recorded in January across the UK (on a seasonally adjusted basis). While up slightly on the end of 2017, this is on a par with the level recorded in January 2016.

For good or bad, housing and house prices were high up the political agenda in 2017, culminating in the abolition of stamp duty for first time buyers in November, for purchases up to £300,000 (or the first £300,000 for properties up to the value of £500,000).

Getting your asking price right is crucial - especially in the South Manchester property market. A survey conducted by Which? found that 46% of the 2,000 people asked sold their homes for less than the amount at which the estate agent valued it. In any case, if the price is right, you should be getting offers within the first 14 days. If there are no bites after that, time to have a chat and discuss the next steps with the team.

We know we live in a great area, and because most people agree, demand has driven up house prices. But how do prices in our area stack up in terms of property types?

House prices across the UK increased by 5.1% in the year to November according to the latest UK house price index. This compares to an annual rate of growth of 5.3% a year ago.

We think your ideal home says a lot about you. If the world were your oyster, would you go for something Victorian, Edwardian, a duplex apartment, new build house, or maybe a farm? Given that we live in South Manchester, obviously our choices are somewhat limited by reality, but what are the hottest types of property and what does this mean for sellers?

The time it takes to sell your home depends on three principal things; price, condition and location. Price is the most important factor and where you set it will directly affect how long your home takes to sell.

The most common type of property is a 3 bed house. In fact, 45.5 per cent of all families in the area live in such a home.

You must have a vision..

10/01/2018
At this time of year, far too many people, become some sort of combination of Nostradamus and Mark Carney predicting, with complete confidence and in an authoritative tone that seems designed to deter any doubters of their infallibility, what will happen to the property market this year.

For the vast majority of people, their property is a home first, an asset second, (if it’s an asset at all given how many rent today). And the reasons why people move home are principally for life stage and also for lifestyle, (not for investment which trails a distant third in the motivators). And this is why I can help you all – people whose life stage is changing and who will therefore seek to move home very shortly. Sure the economy and political situation has an impact on confidence but it doesn’t stop people leaving home, getting married, having babies, divorcing, changing job or retiring.

Five day count down..

20/12/2017
Only five days to go, people, and I am both frazzled by the festive shenanigans and giddy with seasonal excitement.  This is a mindset unique to mid-December-and I rather like it.

Your to-do list is far from sorted, though. There are more gifts to be sourced and various activities to plan. This next week ahead is always tricky now as the children are on holiday and our usual routine is thrown off kilter without school runs or afternoon clubs and activities. But make sure you visit our website www.jpandbrimelow.co.uk as we'll be doing a soft launch on a handful of stunning homes that will be ready to view in the first week of January.

Whatever you are doing, however you are managing it, I wish you a happy five-day countdown to the big feast.  I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Let's talk..

07/12/2017

If you venture online, pick up a paper, or watch the news, any mention of the property market in the UK comes with a measure of doom and gloom these days. However, interest rates are still very low and are not likely to rocket up, so it’s not a remotely dangerous time to buy or sell a home.

Exciting times ahead!.

Are you talking to the area’s leading property experts? We'd love to hear from you. If you’d like to arrange a viewing or a valuation please call the Chorlton team on 0161 882 2233 and Didsbury on 0161 448 0622 today.

Start your journey with....

25/10/2017
Scandi style isn't all white walls and light wood: the new Nordics are embracing a vibrant modern colour palette.

To many of us, the term "Nordic colour" may seem like something of a contradiction in terms.  The Nordic home is not known for its vibrant use of colour.  Instead, the classic Scandi look, as seen in magazines and TV noire, boasts white walls, white floors, black-framed windows, tasteful black-and-white prints on the walls and a smattering of leafy houseplants.

The location of the nordic region results in striking seasonal variations - long days that stretch into the light evenings in the summer, and almost never-ending darkness and extreme cold during the autumn and winter months.  

Something has changed, however.  The Nordic palette is slowly moving away from cool whites and pale greys, and stronger, bolder hues are making an apperance.

We'd love to hear from you. If you’d like to arrange a viewing or an up to date check up on your home please call my team on 0161 882 2233 today.

Tips from us here at JP & Brimelow..

16/10/2017

Half-term week, autumn. All the activities that so successfully occupied the children during the summer are now either weather-inappropriate or have become incredibly boring in their eyes. Daylight is in an ever-diminishing supply, the cold is creeping in and the lure of television is increasing by the second. But fear not. 

There’s no time to lose. If you’d like to arrange a viewing or a valuation please call the team on 0161 882 2233 today.

Lowest annual increase since 2013 gives warning to over-pricing sellers

  • Annual rate of increase lowest since April 2013 at +2.3%, though overall demand remains strong: 
  • Rightmove traffic at record January levels, with visits up 3% on January 2016’s buy-to-let boosted period  
  • Investor sectors understandably quieter than this time last year on number of properties coming to market and number of properties sold
  • Slower rate of price increases makes it riskier for sellers to over-price their property:
  • Analysis shows sellers are 40% more likely to sell if priced right when they first come to market 
  • Three quarters of agents1 surveyed by Rightmove report price-sensitive markets with buyers reluctant to enquire if property is priced just a few percent too high
  • Price of property coming to market up 2.0% (+£5,986) this month, the smallest price rise at this time of year since February 2009

Head and shoulders above the rest!

03/02/2017

House prices will rise by between 1% and 4% in 2017, according to Halifax’s annual forecast, marking a sharp deceleration from 2016, as it raised the prospect of falling prices in London.

Britain’s biggest mortgage lender said a slowdown in economic growth, potential rises in unemployment and pressure on household incomes will put a brake on the property market after several years of growth.

But prices will continue to edge slightly higher, helped by continued low interest rates and subdued housebuilding levels, said Halifax. A rise of 1% to 4%, compared to the 6% gain in 2016, suggests that the average house price in Britain will rise to between £220,000 and £226,000 in 2017, compared to £218,000 today.

Make This Year Your Best Year!

It’s time to make our resolutions once again.

If you’re like most people, then you have a recurring pattern of creating a resolution, and forgetting about it in less than a month. Studies show that the reason why 92% of people don’t follow through with their resolution is simple the resolution isn’t exciting enough to get them to take the actions required.

The biggest mistake people often make is when they try to take on too many goals without having a specific direction to guide them.

We've all had a cracking year here in the Chorlton sales office throughout 2015. As December becomes a vibrant month both on the high street and with the social calendar booking up quickly. Here at JP & Brimelow we believe that Christmas is a great time to put your property on the open market, selling in winter is not for everyone but there are obvious benefits to some.

Definitely food for thought as the last quarter here in my office is one of my busiest throughout the year. Many home owners put thoughts of selling on the back burner until January, yet savvy sellers might be missing a trick as there is less competition and others take advantage of peak internet traffic over the holiday period (according to rightmove.co.uk the busy period starts from CHRISTMAS EVE).

Annual house price inflation in the UK is now at its lowest rate since July 2013, according to Britain's largest mortgage lender, the Halifax.

It fell to 5.2% in the year to the end of October, down from 5.8% in the previous month.

House price inflation has nearly halved since hitting a peak of 10% in March this year, the Halifax said.

However, it said price rises remain "robust". The average price of a house or flat is now £217,411.

This week’s property industry update.

The North/south sales divide in the autumn market

  • Price of property coming to market increases by 0.9% (+£2,623) this month to £309,122, just 0.4% (£1,349) below the all-time high reached in June
  • Sales agreed in September have recovered from summer lull, now down just 4% on the post-election boosted same period in 2015, and up 6% on 2014
  • Sellers’ market in the north of the country with sales agreed up on 2015 and available stock down
  • Buyers still have upper hand in the south – sales agreed are recovering but down on 2015, and stock is up

Shipside observes: “While the number of new-to-the-market sellers is actually up compared to this time last year in all the northern regions, it is failing to keep pace with high buyer demand.  They say as long as it’s not over-priced, the right house in the right area is quickly being snapped up for close to, at, or even over the asking price.”

All thanks to Miles Shipside, Rightmove director and housing market analyst.

                                          ----------------------------------    

If you’re selling this autumn, we all prepare ourselves for the worst – what could go wrong, what we might forget to organise, getting hot and bothered and all the unpacking BUT there’s so many good things to remember – here’s just a few of them…

  • You get to drink champagne (with a valid reason).

  • You get that satisfying feeling once you’ve unpacked and put away everything (you legend).

  • You’ve just gained some new friends in the form of your neighbours.

  • Best of all, once all is said and done, boxes are unpacked and binned and your house is looking lived in, you can sit down, breathe a sigh of relief and know you don’t have to do that again anytime soon!

A great time to sell during the Autumn months, we’ve just had a record breaking September here in the Chorlton office and make the most of what remains of the good weather to give your home a lift with a few odd jobs and improvements. If you’re a buyer, looking to cosy up in a new nest this Christmas, you need to start viewing now as we’ve got some cracking new properties coming to the market.

Industry News
Age gap among first-time buyers sets in, the Halifax says
A gap between the average age of first-time buyers in different parts of the UK has set in despite property price growth slowing, a lender has said.
The Halifax said that UK property prices rose by 5.8% in September compared with a year ago.
This offers some cheer to first-timers who faced annual rises in house prices of 10% six months ago.
Yet those buying in the priciest parts of the UK were typically seven years older than those in cheaper areas.

There’s no time to lose. If you’d like to arrange a viewing or a valuation please call my office on 0161 882 2233 today.

Another record breaking month here in September for all the team at JP & Brimelow in Chorlton, the holiday and returning back to school period is always tricky but this only encourages us to work harder and smarter to get the results for all our vendors.

Developing rapport with all potential, current and past clients has always been a key process in my opinion for the business to grow year on year and to become the market leading estate agent here in Chorlton.

The word rapport comes from the French ‘en rapport’ which has been translated as ‘in agreement and in harmony’. One of the many exciting things about being an estate agent here in Chorlton is you get to meet such a variety of people and therefore the challenge is to connect to all different types, which is a skill that my team enjoy.

It’s also been said that 90% of customers are happy to write reviews after they’ve had an excellent service, so please let me know what you think https://www.allagents.co.uk/view-branch/jp-brimelow/chorlton-cum-hardy-manchester/

Selling your home quickly and for the right amount is about giving your property the edge over others. Here at JP & Brimelow in Chorlton we look at ways of breathing life into your home. But there are other smart tricks that cost very little and can considerably enhance your property’s “kerb appeal” – giving it that wow factor when prospective buyers pull up outside your house for the first time.

Generally the market tends to be stronger in the spring and then picks up again in the late summer and early autumn. Your property will obviously sell more quickly when the market is strong and demand is high. Therefore keep an eye on the local property market with us here in Chorlton.

There are just over 100 days to go until Christmas, which is plenty if you haven’t given a second thought to buying presents, but could prove a problem if you’re planning to move home.

It won’t be long before you are decorating your Christmas tree, stuffing your turkey and wrapping your presents. Christmas can be a stressful time but it is even more so if you are moving house.

Plan in advance:
Make sure you book everything you need in advance. Christmas is a busy time so make sure you order your packing materials, book your removal company and plan ahead. Things can book up pretty quickly! De-cluttering will also help increase the sale price.

If you have a property your are thinking of selling and would like to book an appointment for a FREE market appraisal or would like to view one of our properties please call the Chorlton office on 0161 882 2233.

A minority of those aged 55 and over are withdrawing too much from their pension pots, the industry has warned.

However, after the first full year since pension freedoms began, the Association of British Insurers (ABI) said most people were being sensible.

Well over half of those withdrawing money from their pots in the first three months of 2016 took out 1% or less of their value.

But at the same time 3,379 people took out more than 10% from their pensions.

Nevertheless that number is likely to include people who are investing the money elsewhere, or who may have multiple, small pension funds.

There were more house purchase loans to first-time buyers than to home movers for a third month in a row during June.

Lending to first-timers was the highest for nearly nine years – meaning that levels have returned to what they were before the housing market crash.

On a monthly basis, the number of loans to first-time buyers was up 24%, and on a yearly basis up 17%.

There were 34,330 house purchase loans to first-time buyers in June, compared with 33,900 to home movers, says the Council of Mortgage Lenders.

Both figures were up from the previous month, which were 27,600 and 26,400 respectively.

In June 2015 there were 29,400 house purchase loans to first-time buyers and 33,800 to home movers.

The amount of money being borrowed by homeowners last month soared to its highest June level for eight years, according to estimates.

Total loan advances reached £20.7bn, the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) said.

That was 16% higher than the previous month, and 3% more than in the same month last year.

The number of homes sold rose by 4.9% during the month, according to separate figures from HM Revenue and Customs.

The figures reflect the run-up to the EU referendum on June 23, and suggest that homebuyers did not necessarily sit on the sidelines waiting for the result of the vote.

However higher mortgage lending also reflects higher house prices, which are still rising at 8.4% a year, according to the Halifax.

The lowest house prices in the UK are now in the North East of England and Cumbria, according to the Nationwide.

Previously Northern Ireland had the cheapest homes in the country.

But while prices have been rising in Northern Ireland and Scotland, the North saw prices fall by 1% over the last year.

Prices in the UK overall rose by 5.1% in the year to June, up from 4.7% last month. The figures do not yet reflect the result of the EU referendum.

Between June and May prices rose by 0.2%, the Nationwide said, lifting the average property price to £204,968.

"Ultimately conditions in the housing market will be determined by conditions in the wider economy, especially the labour market," said Robert Gardner, Nationwide's chief economist.

Would-be-homeowners in large parts of England are being priced out of a government scheme to help first-time buyers, a BBC investigation has found.

The Help to Buy Individual Savings Account (HTB Isa) was introduced last year to help people save for a home.

In many areas, the average price of a starter home exceeds the maximum purchase cap of £250,000, or £450,000 in London.

Chancellor George Osborne said the scheme was aimed at first time buyers.

The HTB Isa was introduced in December to allow first time buyers to put their deposit into a tax-free savings account and get a 25% bonus, up to a maximum of £3,000, when they buy their home.
However, the bonus is only available if the purchase price does not exceed the cap. Housing charity Shelter said it only helped "the lucky few" and the government should focus on building more homes.

Being a first time buyer can be hard work, stressful and nerve-racking. Chances are that you won’t necessarily know the market and it’s easy to be blind-sided by the excitement of viewing dream homes. But the property market is highly competitive and it is important to put yourself in the best possible position before starting the process.

If you want to be ready to compete with other buyers in such a buoyant market, then you need to spend time getting all your ducks in a row. Yes, the first step is boring, but it is absolutely essential. Speak to a financial adviser to find out exactly what you can afford and which mortgage route is best for you. There is a big misconception around the level of deposit required and how much you can borrow, so it’s important to be clear on your price range right from the outset. It’s also beneficial to get a mortgage agreement in principle because this shows the estate agent and the vendor that you are a serious contender and a ready-to-go applicant.

A key benefit of choosing a traditional, locally-based estate agent is the advice they can offer. They will understand the market better than anyone in that area and can, of course, help guide you through the entire buying process.

It said the figures showed that cheques are still valued as a means of payment. Cheques had been due to be phased out by 2018, until MPs forced a change of heart by the industry. Banks have promised to keep processing them for as long as necessary.

Nationwide is raising its age limit for people paying off mortgages by 10 years to 85, in the latest sign of the impact of rising house prices on buyers. The building society said the increase was due to "growing demand", and the limit would be in force from July.

It means a 60-year-old could take out a 25-year mortgage as long as they prove they can afford the repayments.

The move comes as Halifax increases its age limit for mortgages from 75 to 80 from Monday. There have been calls for the industry to do more to help older buyers after tougher mortgage checks, introduced in the wake of the financial crisis, have made it harder for middle-aged people to get a home loan.

First-time buyers spring into action as landlord buyers fade away.

First-time buyer activity surged in March.

Connells Survey & Valuation says it carried out 41% more valuations for first-time buyers compared with February, and 15% more than in March 2015.

Altogether, it says the total number of valuations carried out last month was up 8% year on year, and up by 21% compared with February.

Valuation activity for the buy-to-let market dropped heavily during March as the Stamp Duty deadline neared.

It was down by 27% from February, and down 36% on March last year.

Connells’ figures come as Labour has predicted that fewer than one in four under-35s will own a home by 2020 – 614,000 fewer than in 2010.

The party said that there are now 340,000 fewer home-owners aged under 35 than in 2010.

With the recent stock market turmoil and the oil price rout showing no sign of abating, Carney has said that "now is not yet the time" to raise rates from historic low of 0.5 per cent, adding that any such move would "depend on economic prospects, not the calendar."

Buy-to-let investors face a 3% surcharge on stamp duty from April.

The uplift in traffic coincides with a well-documented drop in stock for sale, meaning it is likely that visitors could not find much in the way of new listings to look at.

Rightmove says there were over 127m visits last month, up almost 20% on January 2015 and surpassing the previous record of 118m set last August.

Phone and email leads beat the previous record set last July of over 4.8m.

The property market will have rather more on its plate in 2016 than the perennial issue of whether house prices will go up or down.

The recent decision of the US central bank, the Federal Reserve, to raise interest rates for the first time since the summer of 2006, has opened the door for the Bank of England finally to follow suit.

And one thing that will certainly happen in England and Wales is that from next April, stamp duty rates will be jacked up for anyone buying a home that is not their main residence.

UK mortgage lending highest for seven years, says CML.

Mortgage lending in 2015 was the highest for seven years, according to the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML). It says homeowners borrowed £220.3bn last year, up 8% on 2014 and the highest since 2008's total of £247.8bn. However, the figure is still well below the £356bn lent at the peak of the property market in 2007.

The CML said lending had recovered faster than expected. Growing wages, falling unemployment and cheap mortgage deals were among the reasons. Nevertheless, it said the outlook for 2016 was less certain.

The governor of the Bank of England has ruled out an immediate rise in interest rates because of the turmoil in the global economy and weaker UK growth.

In a gloomy assessment of the state of the world, Mark Carney said that collapsing oil prices and an "unforgiving" global environment meant that tighter monetary policy was not yet necessary. Mr Carney's assessment comes six months after he suggested that a rise in interest rates would come into "sharper relief" at the beginning of 2016.

Many assessed that as a signal that rates would start rising early this year - a relief for savers who have struggled with historically low interest rates since the financial crisis.

A further 8% decide even before going in.

Only one in six purchasers (17%) need a second viewing before deciding to buy.

The findings are part of research released today by conveyancing firm My Home Move – which may, or may not, tally with estate agents’ experiences of viewings.

Two-thirds of first-time buyers do not understand what Stamp Duty Land Tax is.

And half of all Britons are baffled by other home-buying terminology such as “offset mortgage”, “arrangement fee” and “standard variable rate”.

New research by online bank First Direct among over 2,000 consumers found that one in four do not know who pays Stamp Duty on property, while 5% think it is a tax based on the property’s size.

The bank has now put some videos together to explain the mortgage process in everyday language.

The move follows the launch of the new mortgage tariff, by the Council of Mortgage Lenders and Which?, aimed at demystifying the way lenders communicate their fees.

Banks and building societies are to simplify mortgage information, to help borrowers find the cheapest deal.

The Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) and consumer group Which? have jointly launched a new tariff, spelling out mortgage fees in a standardised format.

The move comes after Which? warned last year that people could be "paying over the odds" due to complex charges.

Which? also said there were 40 different names for fees and charges in use, often for the same service.

For example an application fee - a charge for assessing and processing an application - could also be named a booking fee or a reservation fee.

The CML and Which? were asked by Chancellor George Osborne to work together on the new tariff.

It has standard terminology, so lenders will in future use the same names for fees.

It will also have a common format, so that each lender will list fees in the same order, with the same descriptions.

Growth in UK house prices sped up in the year to October, says the country's largest mortgage lender, because of "improving economic conditions".

The Halifax said that prices rose at an annual pace of 9.7% last month - up from 8.6% in September.

During October itself, house prices rose by 1.1%, following a decline of 0.9% in the previous month.

The increase brought the average price of a flat or house across the country up to £205,240, a record high.

Martin Ellis, Halifax housing economist, said: "Improving economic conditions and household finances, together with sustained low mortgage rates, have boosted housing demand during 2015.

"Strengthening demand is filtering through into higher sales levels, although the on going shortage of supply is acting as a significant constraint on activity."

Mortgage activity has picked up this year but the lack of homes for sale is likely to push up house prices, reports have suggested.

The Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) predicts house prices will rise 5.6% this year, higher than its previous forecast of 4.7%.

A lack of properties being put on the market was pushing up prices, it said.

This comes despite a 14% rise in mortgage approvals for house purchases, according to the major banks.

The British Bankers' Association (BBA) said that the rise in September compared with a year earlier was partly due to first-time buyers being able to find a "good deal".

Rightmove says that asking prices hit a new record high in October House prices hit new highs this month as first-time buyers scramble to get their foot on the housing ladder, according to property website Rightmove.

Average asking prices rose to £296,549 in October, 5.6pc higher than they were a year ago. Especially strong demand from first-time buyers has seen the price of properties bought by those getting on the housing ladder jump by close to 10pc in the period.


Miles Shipside, a Rightmove housing analyst, said that the growth in average house prices was “mainly being fuelled by the heady price rises of typical first-time-buyer homes”.


If you’re selling this Autumn, make the most of what remains of the good weather to give your home a lift with a few odd jobs and improvements. If you’re a buyer, looking to cosy up in a new nest this Christmas, you need to start viewing now. There’s no time to lose. If you’d like to arrange a viewing, call my office on 0161 882 2233.

The number of UK house sales rose at the fastest pace for 16 months in September, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (Rics) has said.

It is the fifth month in a row that sales have increased.
However, Rics added there was an increasing shortage of properties on the market, which was likely to push up prices.

In the South East, the average number of homes on the books of each surveyor fell to a record low of just 25.

Across the UK, the average stock per surveyor remains at 47, the smallest number recorded.
"It is hard not to see prices continuing to move higher over the coming months, and into the early part of 2016, notwithstanding the present concerns regarding the affordability of housing in some areas of the UK," said Rics chief executive Simon Rubinsohn.

First time buyers activity soars

First time buyers caused a 22 percent month-on-month rise in activity compared to May, but little change when compared to June last year, according to data from the Council of Mortgage Lenders.

There were 28,300 new loans issued to first-time buyers in June, totalling £4.2billion, the data revealed.
The rise in mortgage lending has been boosted by an increase in the number of deals now available to first-time buyers.

UK mortgage lending in the first eight months of the year has exceeded annual lending as a whole during the credit crunch.

A total of £138.6bn has been borrowed so far this year, including £20bn in August, latest figures from the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) show.

This is higher than mortgage lending for the whole of 2010 (£133.8bn) and the whole of 2011 (£138.3bn).

The CML said lending was "enjoying its best spell since 2008".

Activity has been driven, in part, by homeowners remortgaging to secure a low rate, fearing that the Bank of England will increase interest rates in the coming months.

Mortgage lending in August was 12% higher than in August last year, when new rules were slowing the application process. The total was 8% lower than in July - as is often the case as people head off on summer holidays.

The CML represents banks, building societies and other lenders who together undertake around 95% of all residential mortgage lending in the UK.

If you’re selling, make the most of what remains of the good weather to give your home a lift with a few odd jobs and improvements. If you’re a buyer, looking to cosy up in a new nest this Christmas, you need to start viewing now. There’s no time to lose. If you’d like to arrange a viewing, call my office on 0161 882 2233.

It might not of been the hottest summer but here at JP & Brimelow we have had a scorcher with sales and lets. Please see below a chosen few that we have completed on in the month of August.

There are just over 100 days to go until Christmas, which is plenty if you haven’t given a second thought to buying presents, but could prove a problem if you’re planning to move home.

It won’t be long before you are decorating your Christmas tree, stuffing your turkey and wrapping your presents. Christmas can be a stressful time but it is even more so if you are moving house.

Plan in advance:
Make sure you book everything you need in advance. Christmas is a busy time so make sure you order your packing materials, book your removal company and plan ahead. Things can book up pretty quickly! De-cluttering will also help increase the sale price.

If you have a property your are thinking of selling and would like to book an appointment for a FREE market appraisal or would like to view one of our properties please call the Chorlton office on 0161 882 2233.

Property sales down 15%, but prices up, says Land Registry. The number of homes being sold in England and Wales has fallen significantly, according to figures from the Land Registry.

In May this year, there were 65,619 transactions in total, a 15% fall on the same month in 2014.However, prices in some property hotspots are still rising by up to 13% a year, due to lack of supply.

The number of homes being sold for more than a million pounds dropped dramatically - down by 21%. The Land Registry figures include cash sales, as well as properties bought with mortgages.

Some experts have welcomed what they see as a cooling of the market. Price rises, however, the fall in transactions appears to be putting further pressure on house prices.

Earlier this month, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (Rics) reported that the number of homes for sale was at a record low.

The Land Registry has already reported that house prices in England and Wales rose by 4.6% in the year to July 2015.

Mortgage lending across the UK in July was at its highest level for seven years, according to the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML).

Home-owners borrowed a total of £22bn in the month, the highest amount since July 2008.

The CML said total mortgage lending for the year was likely to hit £209bn, which would mean a 3% increase on 2014.

It also said it expected lending to pick up in the second half of the year, following "subdued activity" earlier.

"We expect lending activity in the rest of the year to be underpinned by improving economic fundamentals, but kept in check as any upward pressure on house prices further stretches affordability for some buyers," said CML economist Mohammed Jamei.

The total amount of money lent naturally gets bigger as house prices rise, and home-owners need to borrow more.

Good Afternoon,

A hot topic this month is when will the Bank of England look at changing the interest rate. Mark Carney, the Bank of England governor, last week said that a rise in the Bank Rate was "drawing closer". Mr Carney said that the exact timing of the first rise in the Bank Rate could not be "predicted in advance". The decision would be determined by looking at economic data.

More than a million mortgage holders have only ever owned a home when rates were falling or frozen at 0.5%. The number of home-owners re-mortgaging jumped by 30% in June, as borrowers locked in to new deals ahead of a rise in interest rates.

The figures - from the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) - show re-mortgaging at its highest level since September 2013. During June 31,600 households changed their mortgage deals, compared with 24,300 in May. Those not on fixed deals may see payments increase when base rates rise.

Research by Policis, for the CML, suggests that many homeowners have been taking a safety-first approach to their debt since the financial crisis.

"Given the importance of home ownership it is perhaps unsurprising that homeowners, overwhelmingly, regard paying the mortgage as their number one financial priority. Some 69% say that this is the case, substantially ahead of any other category of expenditure," the report said.

Here at JP & Brimelow Chorlton Ltd I have Brendan from Brown Financial Services based here in my office providing you with mortgage help. Please don’t hesitate to contact my Sales department on 0161 882 2233 to arrange a suitable time to discuss further or for a FREE MARKET APPRAISAL of your home.

House price rises sped up in July, says Nationwide.

The pace of increase in UK house prices accelerated in July, rising by 3.5% compared with a year earlier, according to the Nationwide.

The building society said that the annual change picked up from 3.3% a month earlier.
Property values rose by 0.4% in July compared with June, taking the cost of the average home to £195,621.

Demand for housing remained "encouraging", the report said, but supply strength was "unclear".
Nationwide's chief economist Robert Gardner said: "The number of new homes under construction has started to pick up, albeit from historically low levels, and further increases are required if a sustainable recovery in the housing market is to be maintained over the longer term."

Mr Gardner said that the house price growth might be "stabilising close to the pace of earnings growth" which had historically been around 4% a year.

Estate agents and analysts point out that the market could be affected by a potential change in interest rates at the turn of the year.

"Buyers often do not realise the impact of a rate rise until the first one actually happens."

Whilst our office is based in Chorlton we also focus on the all the local areas i.e. Firswood, Old Trafford, Whalley Range and Stretford. With our selection of buyers covering a wide range from local people upsizing/downsizing, families moving back to the area, students along with relocation and school catchment requirements. We need to keep on our toes to make sure our supply and demand meets all requirements.

Many buyers over next few weeks will be looking to move in to their properties ready for the start of the new school term. Deciding to move house is a big upheaval for the entire family. But while adults tend to focus on the practical problems, a child will focus on all the losses that the move causes. This can be the loss of their friends or of a safe and familiar environment. Talk to children about the move and do it early to give them as much time as possible to get used to the idea. Tell the children all about their new home and give them lots of facts and information appropriate for their age group and level of understanding

If you are thinking of putting your property on the market now is a good time to make an appointment for your free valuation. Putting your house on the market in the coming weeks could mean you are in your new home for Christmas.

WE ARE PROUD TO BE A NAEA MEMBER

Why use an NAEA Licensed agent?

Look out for the NAEA logo online, in branch windows, and on sales and lettings boards. The logo means credible advice and guidance based on experience and up to date practice.
In a study by NAEA1, 39% of people did not consider whether agents were regulated, meaning that their agents may not have been signed up to any Rules of Conduct or have any regulated body over seeing them.

Choosing a trustworthy estate agent who will treat you fairly and ensure your money is protected could not be more important. Every year inexperienced and unqualified agents cause Britain’s home buyers and sellers unnecessary stress and hassle – and sometimes loss of money – by giving incorrect or misleading advice or offering poor standards of customer service.

By using JP & Brimelow you are using a NAEA Licensed member and you are guaranteed to be dealing with a professional estate agent who is giving you advice and guidance on the basis of up to date practice.

There is currently no legislation in the UK which requires estate agents to be licensed. NAEA have been lobbying government for many years on the basis that compulsory regulation would mean a better deal for consumers and unearth rogue agents. Until that happens, agents who sign up to be NAEA Licensed are volunteering to have their practices monitored, scrutinised and regulated.

When you see the logo you can be confident that an agent is:

• required to adhere to NAEA’s Rules of Conduct
• signed up to a government approved scheme providing independent redress
• has the right level of valid professional indemnity insurance.

The aim of NAEA is to reassure the general public that by appointing an NAEA member to represent them, they will receive in return the highest level of integrity and service for all property matters, and failing to meet those standards could result in heavy penalties from NAEA.

Asking prices for properties have surged to a new record level – but new sellers are staying away, starving the market of stock. Rightmove said that asking prices for properties new on the market had shot up 3% – the highest ever rise in June equating to £8,460 – to £294,351.

However, the anticipated post-election rise in new seller numbers has failed to materialise. Supply of properties coming to the market is down 8.5% compared with a year ago and down 3.9% on a monthly basis. It means that fewer properties have come on to the market after the election than before it.

The average number of properties for sale per estate agency branch in May was 63 – compared with 70 in May last year. By contrast, buyer demand looks to be high, with Rightmove reporting the busiest ever May on its website, with 115m visits, equal to every adult in the UK visiting twice in the month.

The busiest-ever single day for visits to Rightmove was on Tuesday, May 19. According to Rightmove, asking prices for properties likely to be bought by first-time buyers have gone up the most in the last year.

By sector, first-time buyer asking prices are £175,628, up 6.2% from a year ago; second-stepper asking prices are £242,380, up 4.2%; and top of the ladder asking prices are £543,065, up 2.9%.

Launched on Monday 26th January 2015, www.onthemarket.com is the new and simple way to search for property for both Sales and Rentals.

OnTheMarket.com launched just four months ago but in that time it has managed to take nearly one quarter of the estate and letting agents listing on Zoopla. This was made clear by Zoopla itself when it confirmed on Wednesday that it had lost 23% of its member agents as a consequence of our launch. Less than 10 per cent of our current members have retained Zoopla as their one other portal. As a result, OnTheMarket.com has already overtaken Zoopla in many areas across the UK with its number of property listings. These are heavy losses for Zoopla, which has enjoyed its position as the UK's number two portal and the 49 per cent profit margin this has yielded. However, that position is now under threat and Zoopla is losing market share both to Rightmove and to OnTheMarket.com.

DONT MAKE THE WRONG CHOICE WHEN SELLING OR BUYING IN SOUTH MANCHESTER CHOOSE THE BIG PURPLE ONE!

The main party leaders are criss-crossing the UK appealing to undecided voters in key seats as the election campaign enters its final two days.

Conservative leader David Cameron has warned a SNP-backed Labour government was a "chilling prospect" as he appeared with Boris Johnson in London.

Ed Miliband said Labour would "rescue" NHS hospitals from "savage" budget cuts under a Conservative government.

Nick Clegg said the Lib Dems would "guarantee stability" after 7 May.

The deputy prime minister has warned of the prospect of a "second election before Christmas" if no party wins an outright victory and either the Conservatives or Labour attempt to govern on their own.

UKIP leader Nigel Farage is spending the day in the Kent seat he hopes to win for his party, after taking out a two-page advertisement in the Daily Telegraph urging people "to vote with their heart".

With two days to go before polling day:

Polls suggest the election is still too close to call, and in the final days the parties are focusing on their core messages amid speculation about post-election deals if there is a hung Parliament.

Mortgage approvals trending upwards, say High Street banks 

After a slow start to the year, the number of mortgages being approved is now "trending upwards", according to the UK's High Street banks.

Figures from the British Bankers Association (BBA) show that 38,751 house-purchase mortgages were offered in March, up from 37,453 in February.

That is the highest number for 6 months, but 14% lower than a year ago.

The BBA said that one reason for the improving picture was the low mortgage rates on offer.

Lenders have continued to cut rates, as the prospect of the Bank of England raising interest rates has receded.

Five-year fixed rates are now available for less than 2% a year.

"The third successive modest rise in mortgage approvals ties in with our belief that housing market activity is now gradually turning around," said Howard Archer, chief European and UK economist with IHS Global Insight.

Last week the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) - which represents building societies as well - reported a similar picture of gradually improving lending.

The BBA said more people were also borrowing money from banks in the form of loans or overdrafts.

Consumer borrowing rose by £400m in March, compared to February.

WE ARE PROUD TO BE A NAEA MEMBER

Why use an NAEA Licensed agent?

Look out for the NAEA logo online, in branch windows, and on sales and lettings boards. The logo means credible advice and guidance based on experience and up to date practice.
In a study by NAEA1, 39% of people did not consider whether agents were regulated, meaning that their agents may not have been signed up to any Rules of Conduct or have any regulated body over seeing them.

Choosing a trustworthy estate agent who will treat you fairly and ensure your money is protected could not be more important. Every year inexperienced and unqualified agents cause Britain’s home buyers and sellers unnecessary stress and hassle – and sometimes loss of money – by giving incorrect or misleading advice or offering poor standards of customer service.

By using JP & Brimelow you are using a NAEA Licensed member and you are guaranteed to be dealing with a professional estate agent who is giving you advice and guidance on the basis of up to date practice.

There is currently no legislation in the UK which requires estate agents to be licensed. NAEA have been lobbying government for many years on the basis that compulsory regulation would mean a better deal for consumers and unearth rogue agents. Until that happens, agents who sign up to be NAEA Licensed are volunteering to have their practices monitored, scrutinised and regulated.

When you see the logo you can be confident that an agent is:

• required to adhere to NAEA’s Rules of Conduct
• signed up to a government approved scheme providing independent redress
• has the right level of valid professional indemnity insurance.

The aim of NAEA is to reassure the general public that by appointing an NAEA member to represent them, they will receive in return the highest level of integrity and service for all property matters, and failing to meet those standards could result in heavy penalties from NAEA.

'You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.'

What is Spring?

Spring is the season of new beginnings. Fresh buds bloom and animals awaken and the earth seems to come to life again. Farmers and gardeners plant their seeds, and temperatures slowly rise. Changes vary depending upon location, as most equatorial regions see fairly constant temperatures throughout the year.

What most people call spring relies on the astronomical definition of the word, the period between the spring equinox and the summer solstice. Defined by the angle of Earth's tilt toward the sun, astronomical spring relies on equinoxes and solstices to define it.

Please call my Chorlton office on 0161 882 2233 if you wish to book a viewing on one of our fantastic properties, or if you wish to book a FREE market appraisal on your property. We also have our own in house independent Financial adviser Brendan Brown who you can make an appointment with to discuss your mortgage and financial requirements.

St. Patrick’s Day

Here’s something you may already know: on St Patrick’s Day, March 17, the world goes green. People go green, places go green. Even pets go green. Of course, being the greenest place of all, it makes sense that when we celebrate our Patron Saint, the island of Ireland hosts a very big, very beautiful and very green party. Described by Lonely Planet as "The mother of all Irish festivals", Dublin’s four-day celebration is a heady mix of ceilís (traditional Irish dances), foodie gatherings, tours, treasure hunts and more. At its heart is the city centre parade where tens of thousands of clover-clad revellers sing, dance, mingle and make some serious memories.

What is Lent?

Lent will begin this week.Whether you're just wondering what it's all about or want to know the dates for Lent, here's what you need to know.

In the Christian calendar, Lent is the 40 days leading up to Easter which is treated as a period of reflection and a time for fasting from food and festivities.It symbolises the days which lead up to Jesus' crucifixion and subsequent resurrection when Christ spent 40 days and nights alone in the desert.

During Lent some churches hang purple drapes and frontals. This is because purple is the colour of royalty and is used to celebrate Christ’s sovereignty.

The final day of Lent is Thursday, 2 April - just before Good Friday.

What is Valentines Day?

Valentine’s Day is a time when people show feelings of love, affection and friendship. It is celebrated in many ways worldwide and falls on February 14 each year.

The ancient ceremony included putting girls’ names in a box and letting the boys draw them out. Couples would then be paired off until the following year. The Christian church substituted saints’ names for girls’ names in hope that the participant would model his life after the saint whose name he drew. However, it was once again girls’ names that ended up in the box by the 16th century.

Here at JP & Brimelow we have invested our time, money (GOLD MEMBERSHIP) and confidence into this new property portal to work alongside the 4,000 members of other independent estate agents who have also committed themselves financially.

That was the highest total since 2007, at the start of the financial crisis. The main reason was cheap mortgage rates, and government schemes like Help to Buy, which require small deposits. Better job prospects may also have helped.

Moving house is often said to be one of life’s most stressful experiences, but with careful forward planning and meticulous organisation it can almost be fun!
Ideally, if time is on your side, you want to start preparing to move house two months before the big day itself, but things are happening quicker than that. We all have a lot more stuff than we think we have and most of us only realise this when we attempt to pack up all our possessions for the first time. It’s not just a case of throwing everything into boxes and suitcases either.

The packing up of your possessions needs to be done in a coordinated way, with everything that’s destined for the new kitchen, for example, labelled and packed together so that unpacking is much easier. Plus, flat packed furniture needs to be dismantled and have all its bits labelled up ready to be put together again at the other end; delicate items require additional protective wrapping and food and plants need to be kept upright and fresh. And make sure you don’t forget anything: mirrors and lampshades often get mistakenly left behind in a move.
If you need help with moving call Manchester Removals and Storage on 0845 557 0446, you can also email them on info@mcrremovals.com or visit their website www.mcrremovals.com they aim to make moving happy and enjoyable. With their expertise in the moving trade it means that they know how to bring you to a safe, comfortable and stress free move. There tailored removal packages allow you to choose the moves that suits you best, from a simple collection and delivery to a full packing service.

These services include:

• Domestic and Commercial Move
• Local and Nationwide distribution
• Containerised Storage
• Packing Supplies Available
• Insurance Backed
• Professional Uniformed Staff

Please feel free to give my Chorlton office a call on 0161 882 2233 if you want a chat, have a property to put on the market or wish to view one of our properties.

Why use an NAEA Licensed agent?

Look out for the NAEA logo online, in branch windows, and on sales and lettings boards. The logo means credible advice and guidance based on experience and up to date practice.
In a study by NAEA1, 39% of people did not consider whether agents were regulated, meaning that their agents may not have been signed up to any Rules of Conduct or have any regulated body over seeing them.

Choosing a trustworthy estate agent who will treat you fairly and ensure your money is protected could not be more important. Every year inexperienced and unqualified agents cause Britain’s home buyers and sellers unnecessary stress and hassle – and sometimes loss of money – by giving incorrect or misleading advice or offering poor standards of customer service.

By using JP & Brimelow you are using a NAEA Licensed member and you are guaranteed to be dealing with a professional estate agent who is giving you advice and guidance on the basis of up to date practice.

There is currently no legislation in the UK which requires estate agents to be licensed. NAEA have been lobbying government for many years on the basis that compulsory regulation would mean a better deal for consumers and unearth rogue agents. Until that happens, agents who sign up to be NAEA Licensed are volunteering to have their practices monitored, scrutinised and regulated.

When you see the logo you can be confident that an agent is:

• required to adhere to NAEA’s Rules of Conduct
• signed up to a government approved scheme providing independent redress
• has the right level of valid professional indemnity insurance.

The aim of NAEA is to reassure the general public that by appointing an NAEA member to represent them, they will receive in return the highest level of integrity and service for all property matters, and failing to meet those standards could result in heavy penalties from NAEA.

You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.

I am looking forward to my first meeting in Warrington with 'on the market' to discuss the new property website portals launch on January 26th 2015!!! #thebigpurpleone are proud to be a part of this exciting new launch.

Next week’s UK-wide meetings, at which agents will be briefed on Agent’s Mutual’s plans and able to see, pre-launch what OnTheMarket.com will look like, have been hugely over-subscribed.Originally, there were due to be 26 events taking place between December 8 and 11.

The number has now been increased to 39 and by yesterday morning several thousand places had been reserved.Some of the two-hour events are totally booked up, despite a suggested cap of no more than two people per branch.

Further presentations at the same venues and on the same days may now have to be added to accommodate demand. Helen Whiteley, commercial director at Agents’ Mutual, said: “The huge level of support for our launch events shows how our momentum has grown and how excited the industry has become about our launch on January 26.”

The meetings are all private, and attendance is by invitation only.

Agents will be given a walk-through of the new portal and shown a video presentation taking them through the planned marketing and advertising.

Getting a foot on the first rung of the property ladder can seem an uphill struggle. But if you are finding saving a deposit or getting a mortgage difficult, there are places you can go to for help, whatever age you are.

Lenders must now check that you can afford the mortgage and also 'stress test' your ability to make your payments if interest rates were to rise or your circumstances changed. When deciding how much to lend you, lenders will take your income and all your outgoings into account. To prove your income, you may have to produce pay slips and bank statements and the self-employed could be asked for tax returns and business accounts prepared by an accountant.

We have had a fantastic year and we are going from strength to strength within the market. Here at JP & Brimelow we have 34% more sold properties than anybody else.

‘Don't watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.’

Get your homes on the market in 2014.

Rightmove took off the gloves this week, urging next year’s sellers not to hold off marketing until the New Year but to get their homes “on the market” sooner.

“In order to take advantage of these festive surfers, prospective sellers who were planning to wait until the New Year should consider launching their property to the market just before Christmas to take advantage of this activity.”

The press release also quotes Eddie Ellis, director of JP & Brimelow in Chorlton, Manchester, who said: “We sold eight houses in the first three days back after New Year in 2014 so there are clearly motivated movers who are ready to jump into action post-Christmas.

“Sellers who get their property details ready now will have the advantage of prime exposure during the festive peak in traffic, and they’ll also have festive-free images that won’t need to be retaken in the New Year if they’re still looking for a buyer.”

First-time buyer sales rose climbed 11 per cent last month to a completion total of 25,800 despite signs of a wider market slowdown. The average first-time buyer purchase price rose three per cent year-on-year to £150,950, while the average first-time buyer deposit fell eight per cent to £26,134 with more high loan-to-value lending helping keep the market accessible.

At the same time, deposits fell even faster as a proportion of annual income. The average first-time buyer deposit represented 67.6 per cent of annual income in September this year, 12 per cent lower than in September 2013.

These figures, from LSL Property Services, cite averages across the UK. In London, of course, many sums are much higher.

Borrowing drawing on the equity tied up in people's property has hit its highest quarterly level since records began in 2002, figures show.

Equity release lending totalled £375.5m in the third quarter of the year, the Equity Release Council trade body said.

More than 5,500 people aged over 55 released equity from their homes over the same three months, it added.

However, the Money Advice Service suggests this form of borrowing can be "expensive and inflexible".

Suitable?

The total borrowed in the first nine months of the year has reached 95% of the total of all of 2013, the figures showed.

The average value of equity release also reached its highest level since 2002 in the third quarter of the year, with homeowners typically "releasing" £67,467.

Nigel Waterson, chairman of the Equity Release Council, claimed that for many people aged over 55, pension savings were failing to cover rising costs.

"Rising house prices also mean that customers have a growing pool of equity at their disposal and can still keep a large proportion of the value of their house intact." he said.

"Equity release can offer a large and much-needed boost to people's finances, proving comfort and stability throughout retirement."

However, the government-backed Money Advice Service said that this form of borrowing was not suitable for everyone.

"They can be expensive and inflexible if your circumstances change. They may also affect your entitlement to state or local authority benefits," it warned.

Steve Wilkie, managing director of provider Responsible Equity Release, said that many of their customers were motivated by providing early inheritance for members of their family.

He said the largest increase in custom was in the North East and the South East of England.

A series of reports issued within hours of each other suggest the market is at least slowing - but with some fear that it might be in more serious trouble.

Halifax says annual house price growth rate has now peaked at 10 per cent and will grow in future at a considerably slower pace.

Its latest figures - just one snapshot for one month based on the mortgage lender’s data, of course - shows a modest 0.6 per cent price rise on average across the UK in September. The price of the typical property rose to £187,188.

Prices in the three months to September were 2.7 per cent higher than in the preceding quarterbut the Halifax says this marked the second successive decline in the quarterly rate.

“The recent rapid rise in house prices in some parts of the UK, earnings growth that remains below consumer price inflation and the possibility of an interest rate rise over the coming months, appear to have tempered housing demand” says Martin Ellis, the Halifax’s chief economist and author of its house price index.

“A moderation in growth looks likely during the remainder of 2014 and into next year as supply and demand become increasingly better balanced.”

The weather may be getting colder but our enthusiasm is still red hot.

Average house prices in England increased by 1.2 per cent in the third quarter of 2014 and were up 12.8 per cent year-on-year according to the Nationwide - but the society emphasises that the rate of growth is slowing in most areas. However, the gap between the North and South persists. Prices in the south of England were up 15.3 per cent year-on-year while in the north prices rose just 6.7%. Price growth in the south has now exceeded that of the north for 22 consecutive quarters.

There are less than 100 days to go until Christmas, which is plenty if you haven’t given a second thought to buying presents, but could prove a problem if you’re planning to move home.

It won’t be long before you are decorating your Christmas tree, stuffing your turkey and wrapping your presents. Christmas can be a stressful time but it is even more so if you are moving house.

Plan in advance:
Make sure you book everything you need in advance. Christmas is a busy time so make sure you order your packing materials, book your removal company and plan ahead. Things can book up pretty quickly! De-cluttering will also help increase the sale price.

Asking prices have risen 0.9 per cent in the past month according to Rightmove, in the first September increase since 2011.

The portal says the asking prices of property coming to market this month are up by £2,474 - a sharp contrast to the average change in September (a fall of 0.5 per cent) recorded by Rightmove over the past 10 years.

Enquiries sent to agents are good lead indicators of demand and Rightmove claims to have generated over four million enquiries in August, the second highest level ever recorded, with only January this year being marginally higher. Enquiries from mobile devices are up by 45 per cent this August.  

We continue to achieve sales on all types of properties on a weekly basis, not only generating an early response but achieving client’s expectations on price. I feel that this is a cracking time to promote your home whilst confidence is upbeat in the financial markets with lending and the available mortgage products.

The National Association of Estate Agents’ latest TV campaign begins this week with advertisement slots at the moment in the Midlands, north east and south west regions.

The association is telling its members to make sure their branch window stickers are in place and to use the hashtag #LOOKFORTHELOGO on social media campaigns - this hashtag will be a prominent part of the TV campaign, too.

NAEA was founded in 1962 by estate agent and entrepreneur Raymond Andrews. They were established with the goal of upholding good practice and high professional standards in UK estate agency. This struck a chord with the industry at a time when there was little representation for estate agents and has allowed the Association to grow phenomenally for over 50 years.

Looking forward to forth coming months, recent statistics from Council of Mortgage Lenders revealed that gross mortgage lending reached£17.5 billion in June. The CML also estimated a 10% increase in gross mortgage lending over the first three months of this year. In light of these reports it will be interesting to see if notable increases are recorded for properties ‘Sold’ throughout August.

The figures reported by this month’s Property Activity Index have revealed marginal declines across the most of the market. Nevertheless on a whole the performance of the UK property market this year has been robust and demand for property continues to rise. As we now enter the summer holiday months where a seasonal slowdown is anticipated I am curious to see if the boost in gross mortgage lending will convert in to actual sales or whether people will hold off until September.

Due to supply and demand if you are thinking of putting your property on the market or wish to view one of our properties please call in to our Chorlton branch or call us on 0161 882 2233 to make an appointment as our diary gets full pretty quickly.

Just as most commentators are warning of a possible slowdown in house price growth, so respected consultancy CBRE says it is revising its 2014 forecast upwards. It says by the end of the year average prices across the UK will be 12 per cent higher than in the new year, although it too believes the rate of growth will slow towards Christmas.

The market will remain strong over the next five years, underpinned by an improving economy and an underlying lack of supply. It predicts that house price growth will continue across the UK from 2015 to 2019.

August is usually one of the hottest months of the year - making watering essential. Try to use grey water wherever possible, especially as water butts may be running low if it has been a dry summer. August is traditionally holiday-time, so you might need to enlist the help of friends and family to look after the garden while you are away. When you are at home, take the time to prune summer-flowering shrubs.

We are nearly in August and what an amazing 7 months we have had. Market awareness shows that we are Number 1 with Rightmove on all New instructions appointed in the area. We are number 1 with Zoopla in the market share with available properties and properties under offer. Over the last few months we have also expanded our team due to supply and demand.

Whilst our office is based in Chorlton we also focus on the bordering areas of Firswood, Old Trafford, Whalley Range and Stretford. With our selection of buyers covering a wide range from local people upsizing/downsizing, families moving back to the area, students along with relocation and school catchment requirements. We need to keep on our toes to make sure our supply and demand meets all requirements.

Many buyers over next few weeks will be looking to move in to their properties ready for the start of the new school term. Deciding to move house is a big upheaval for the entire family. But while adults tend to focus on the practical problems, a child will focus on all the losses that the move causes. This can be the loss of their friends or of a safe and familiar environment. Talk to children about the move and do it early to give them as much time as possible to get used to the idea. Tell the children all about their new home and give them lots of facts and information appropriate for their age group and level of understanding

If you are thinking of putting your property on the market now is a good time to make an appointment for your free valuation. Putting your house on the market in the coming weeks could mean you are in your new home for Christmas.

Rightmove is looking both ways over property values. Its index of asking prices in July has shown the first fall of the year yet the portal believes price rises by the end of 2014 will be higher than expected, at an average of eight per cent.

“Market conditions still compare favourably with this time last year, with growth in both the economy and employment. The ‘year to move’ window looks likely to be open for a while longer yet, though we expect market activity will slow down in the run-up to the election in May next year”

Before you decide on a property, research the area. What are the amenities like? Does it have good transport links? Are there good schools nearby? What are crime levels like? All this information is now freely available online. Also try to find out whether there are plans to build in your area.

Another market analyst, this time one of the authors of the Halifax monthly index, says house prices will slow later this year - this time thanks to an increase in supply.

Stephen Noakes, Halifax’s mortgages director, says there are signs of a revival in house building “which should bring supply and demand into better balance and curb upwards pressure on prices over the medium and longer term."

You want to be sure you get the best price, in the shortest time frame with minimum fuss.

UK mortgage lending in April was 36% higher than a year ago, a lenders' group says, as a major bank moves to cool the housing market in London. Gross lending was up 8% compared with March to an estimated total of £16.6bn, according to the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML). The figures come shortly after Lloyds Banking Group said it would limit lending for higher-value homes. The data includes the first week of implementation of new mortgage rules.

UK interest rates will rise to 0.75% from 0.5% in the first three months of 2015 as growth picks up, according to a prediction from the CBI.

A shortage of homes coming onto the market will lead to house price rises, with values expected to grow for years, according to surveyors. The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (Rics) said that house prices remained on a "firmly upward trend". Demand from buyers rose, but the number of homes coming onto the market fell for the fourth month in a row in April. On average, surveyors expected average price growth of 6% a year over the coming five years. In the short-term at least, this was result of the imbalance between the supply of homes and demand. Figures also published on Thursday by the Halifax. part of Lloyds Banking Group, showed that UK house prices rose by 8.5% year-on-year. Prices were 2.3% higher in the three months to the end of April than the three months to the end of January.

A mortgage is usually the biggest debt that people face during their lives. Now the rules governing who can secure a home loan are tightening. The new system, which came into force fully on the 26th April, ensures that lenders conduct a full affordability check on mortgage applicants. This will have practical implications for the amount people can borrow and the length of time that an application might take. The aim is to prevent any return of the pre-crisis mortgage lending that many described as "reckless". They say that lenders are likely to ask for a number of documents that prove income and outgoings figures, such as payslips and bank statements. They say it is important to send all these documents together in one go when they are requested, otherwise the process could be delayed further. Some also suggest "cleaning up" a household budget. So cancelling an unused gym subscription could be a good idea before making a mortgage application. As always, if you would like to chat about anything property related please give my team a call at the Chorlton office on 0161 882 2233. Kind regards Edward Ellis MNAEA JP & BRIMELOW Chorlton

Things are going from strength to strength in the local property market. In fact, demand currently exceeds supply, with more and more people registering interest with us on the look-out for their perfect property. It’s spring time, and apart from blooming daffodils and gambolling lambs this means one thing: lighter nights. Daylight saving time (no plural – it’s not savings) began in the UK at the beginning of the 20 century, with the first day of British Summer Time taking place on 21 May 1916. Since then we’ve experimented with permanent summer time (always one hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time) and even double summer time (always two hours ahead). Now, really is the best time to put your property on the market and if you would like to chat about anything, please give me or my team a call on 0161 882 2233.

The name "April" also means "New Beginning". It also has been traced back from Aphrodite as a shortened name. The Romans gave this month the Latin name Aprilis but the derivation of this name is uncertain. The traditional etymology is from the verb aperire, "to open," in allusion to its being the season when trees and flowers begin to "open,". April Birthstone - Properties of the Diamond. For those who were born in the month of April the Diamond is the traditional birthstone. The April birthstone poem reflects some of the properties with which the Diamond is associated - enhancing relationships and increasing inner strength. The clocks have changed and the nights are lighter. If you want to sell your home this spring, prepare for pent-up buyer demand. Spring might be an even livelier home-selling season this year because homebuyers want to act before interest rates or home prices rise any higher.

Property sales rose sharply compared with a year ago, while rental costs started to go up again, figures have suggested. Sales totalled 84,950 in the month, up from 64,270 in the same month a year earlier, data from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) shows. But, owing to the seasonal slowdown in the market, this was the lowest level since April. Now is the time for a thorough spring clean in your garden; weed and dig over your borders incorporating as much organic matter as you can - those chilly winds will really help to dry out the soil. Mulch bare soil once you have done the work and remove moss and weeds from paths, terraces and driveways. They may be boring tasks but if you don’t get on top of the garden now (especially the weeds!) it will be a nightmare for the rest of the season.

The Bank of England says the number of mortgages approved, but not yet lent, was 76,947 in January. The figures suggest that sales will grow strongly in the coming months, which is likely to push prices higher. It was the largest number of approvals since November 2007, when the banking crisis was getting underway. Approvals are traditionally seen as a very good indicator of forthcoming trends and they clearly suggest that sales will rise further in the coming months. In 2013 more than one million homes were sold in the UK, a 15% jump from 2012.

March Newsletter

04/03/2014
March is the third month of the year in both the Julian and Gregorian calendars. It is one of seven months that are 31 days long. In March the Sun passes through zodiac constellations Aquarius and Pisces. March begins on the same day of the week as November in all years and as February on regular years. The signs of the zodiac within the month of March are Pisces and Aries. March's flower is the violet. March's birthstone is the aquamarine. As with many different markets, seasonal change greatly influences the selling of property. For instance, Spring is a good time to sell your property as this is the time that many people use to purchase so they can get their children into new schools by September. If you wish to capture these Spring home movers, then you should be looking to put your property on the market by the end of March ready for an active period close to May and June. The advantages of a Spring sale means that you have longer days to fill up your home with as many viewings as possible, with more natural light and in bloom gardens added advantages.

Your home is probably your largest financial asset. As with any investment you want to ensure that you are able to get the best return possible and the best service from your estate agent. Fix little problems like leaking taps, chipped paintwork or sticking doors. It won’t take long to do and could well pay dividends in the long run. It’s important that your home makes a good first impression. Show off the features of your home. During the winter and spring months, have a fire, consider lighting it to show it works and create a cosy feeling. If you are selling during spring or summer and have a garden, make sure it is well tended. Although temperatures should start to rise this month, there is still a risk of frost and even snow. Protect vulnerable plants, pots and taps from frost by wrapping insulation such as garden fleece around them and check pots and containers are raised off the ground if possible. Tender trees and shrubs will thank you for a generous application of dry mulch to protect their roots from freezing conditions. When the weather allows, carry on clearing paths, check walls (but avoid concreting until there is no chance of frost), clean and insulate greenhouses and ensure heaters are working properly.

February - Newsletter

29/01/2014
February: named after Februalia, a time period when sacrifices were made to atone for sins. The month of February is often associated with cold, dreary, rainy, snowy weather. Although the shortest month of the calendar year, February can feel as if it drags on forever as we anticipate the arrival of Spring. Most people are familiar with celebrating Valentine's Day, but what else is there to celebrate in the month of February? According to HolidayInsights.com there are plenty of things to celebrate in the month of February. Saint Valentine's Day, also known as Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, on February 14 each year. It is celebrated in many countries around the world, although it remains a working day in most of them. The day was first associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In 18th-century England, it evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards. Valentine's Day symbols that are used today include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Make sure you put that call in to the girls at Blossom on Manchester Road for your loved one's flowers 0161 881 4567. This edition is packed with local information and what is going on in and around Chorlton throughout the month of February. Don't forget if you have a property to sell you can have a free market appraisal, or if you want to pop in for one of our free bags, we are open Mon-Fri 8.30-5.30, Sat 9.30-4pm or call my sales team on 0161 882 2233, or lettings on 0161 882 2244.

2013 has been a tremendous year for all of us at the Chorlton office and 2014 is going to be just as amazing. A new year is on it's way! This is a fresh start, time to begin anew and with renewed vigor. It’s a time to make resolutions, visualize goals, and move forward toward success, growth, and change. Committing to making 2014 another great year, a year that will see us achieving our personal and professional goals. 'Give more and you will have more' While it’s important to have dreams and aspirations, there’s an even more crucial part to any goal. Actually taking the necessary steps to achieve your goals takes ample willpower, dedication, perseverance, and emotional and mental strength. Anyone can dream and make hypothetical plans for their lives, but it takes a special kind of person to make dreams a reality, to make their life what they’ve always wanted it to be. Feel free to call myself and my team in the Chorlton office 0161 882 2233 to discuss your property. Kind regards Edward Ellis MNAEA JP & BRIMELOW Chorlton
