Current Statistics ►

There are people who feel strongly about whether their home address is on a Road, Street, Crescent or Square and developers often assume that one will attract a higher price than another. To test the theory, we explored 2017 sales data to see whether we could identify any correlation between suffix and price.

  • The average price of a property sold on a "Road" to date in 2017 is £301,950, however there are premium purchase properties elsewhere. To purchase on a “Park” expect to pay a 9% premium while to purchase on a “Place”, “Hill”, or “Garden” could add thousands to your purchase price. Owning a property with no street address at all, added £10,000 to one on a “Road”.

  • At the top end of the budget, just 0.5% of all properties sold this year have been on a “Square”, where the average price is £462,895, a stunning 53% more expensive than a “Road”. But “Road” has kerb appeal for more buyers than any other address, accounting for a substantial 30.7% of all sales this year.

Natalie took part in the Cancer Research Race for Life Pretty Muddy on Sunday 3rd September. It was "pretty muddy" due to the Cornish Autumn weather, but a brilliant time was had by all and Natalie raised a fantastic total of £183.00 for Cancer Research!

How to Keep Calm when moving

How to Keep Calm when moving

Lifestyle The Guild of Professional Estate Agents 20th July 2016

It’s no secret that moving house is listed as one of the most stressful things you can do. Choosing a good estate agent who will act as your partner during this process is a great starting point, but what do you do if things get a little overwhelming mid-pack?

For some more practical advice about how you can organise your move, which will in turn save some stress, take a look at our Top 10 tips to make your move as easy as possible, for some great advice. No matter how well-planned your move is, stress can still arise. Here are 6 ways to help keep you calm and collected:

Make a list
There will be many things which will stress you out when moving, but there are some things which might take you by surprise. You know yourself better than anyone, so if you know that a muddled sock drawer is one of your trigger points be prepared for it! A list is a good way to do this - it can act as an anti-stress to-do list as well as keep you organised.

Relaxing activities

We are all different and how we decompress varies greatly. Trying some simple yoga moves can help you to centre yourself and shut out your environment. If you are a beginner, be careful since the last thing you need is to pull a muscle and render you out of action. Similarly, meditation can be a good way to reframe your thoughts.



For others the sense of calm after a work-out is the ultimate release; exert your energy on something else for a while like running or walking and experience the power of endorphins.





Think positive
Negativity can be overwhelming - don’t forget to laugh! If the books fall out the bottom of the box, laugh; they can be repacked. Some of the tensest moments of our life’s often turn out to be the most lovingly reminisced so give yourself chance to enjoy the moment - you won’t move out of this house again.

Get some space

Feeling stressed can be quite claustrophobic. Get some distance from your anxiety by removing yourself from the situation for a moment. If you are tight for time, try shutting yourself in a quiet room (preferably one which isn’t caught in the mid-packing chaos) or stepping outside for some fresh air. Otherwise, a trip out for a cup of coffee might be just the answer.



Breathe
Breathing exercises can really take the edge off intense moments. Try taking a couple of deep breaths, in through the nose and out through the mouth. With a nice, steady pace try this for three to five minutes to give yourself chance to feel the benefit. Again, it may be wise to try and find a quiet spot, away from children and removal men to get the maximum benefit from this.





A good nights' sleep

It isn’t possible to underestimate the power of a good night’s rest. Feeling tired will only heighten your stress levels. Turn the TV off (if you haven’t packed it!), shut off the laptop and make the space as calming as possible. Consider keeping the bedroom box free so that you aren’t constantly reminded of your state of limbo.
