  • IS THE TV CAMPAIGN A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION - Bradleys Estate Agents | Property for sale in Devon, Cornwall & Somerset
    combined with the Association of Residential Letting Agents ARLA have launched a TV campaign across the UK With our industry often receiving bad press from the actions of a minority it is long overdue that the public were reminded about the schemes for those that wish to adhere to industry standards and a strict code of conduct When I joined Bradleys all those years ago I was immediately impressed at how the company was set up with the customer in mind and therefore the highest level of service must be aimed for every single day with each and every client The independent review website allAgents co uk of which Bradleys are currently ranked 3rd out of over 12 600 estate agents across the country is another great way in which potential customers can see how estate agents perform based on someone s actual experience I check review websites for just about every purchase or service I take up and I am sure that most people do the same so why not do it for what most peoples biggest asset In the modern world with the internet providing so many options and yet the ability for just about anyone to set up an estate or letting agency service it is imperative that the public are informed or simply reminded about what to look for to provide them with peace of mind when they are buying selling or letting a house It is common place for customers to put all companies in the same basket and assume they all do the same thing when this is clearly not the case so this campaign is definitely a step in the right direction I hope this continues on a regular basis to ensure the general public are aware of what to look for when

  • Who's Telling the Truth? - Bradleys Estate Agents | Property for sale in Devon, Cornwall & Somerset
    prices Taking an interest in all things housing the article invited me to see whether my home had increased in value faster than my salary during the last year based on the usual put your postcode in a box format I thought this was worth a try and using the wonderful BBC regional computer programme I was told that in Taunton Deane the average house price had gone up by just 3 Having put in my monthly earnings I was told to keep up with the day job How so when the BBC on the same page had countless articles saying how the housing market was booming This raises some questions Clearly this article is available nationwide but is totally centred on the London market and based on a property price bubble that only covers ten square miles of the UK Together with countless documentaries I have listened to or seen on the BBC there is a perception that house prices throughout the UK are spiralling out of control yet their own data tells a very different story This is at best confusing However as a property owner in the South West of the UK I may be mistaken in thinking that my own property value is rising on a daily basis I know this as on Saturday at the various events I attended countless friends and home owners approached me asking how the property market was doing with a knowing glint in their eye expecting me to confirm they were indeed sitting on a personal goldmine I hate to be the bearer of bad news Certainly the market has improved but our own statistics suggest at best there has been a maximum of a 5 rise in property values in some SW areas But be aware of averages as each town is different and in some pockets within the South West we have seen no growth or even a negative growth within the same period The BBC is an institution and so is the Government Treasury and the Bank of England If the latter two gain their information from the BBC or any other London centric institution clearly the message is now damp down the market before the bubble bursts which they have sort of done through political nudging over the past few weeks This tampering of the market on a macro scale is not helpful unless you live in London and at worse can be detrimental to more fragile markets throughout the UK However vendors don t hear this but BUYERS do At the coalface of Estate Agency it is a difficult message to give to vendors at valuations when the high expectation of the value of a vendor s house fuelled by media speculation has to be dampened when told the value of homes in that area have only risen in the last year by single digit percentage increase Beware of the agent in each town that will tell the vendor what they want to hear rather

  • Best Value for Money! - Bradleys Estate Agents | Property for sale in Devon, Cornwall & Somerset
    world it really got me excited I know that for most people they will laugh but when I have been saying this for as long as I have been in this industry it is nice to know that I am right The article highlights how other countries readily charge between 3 and 6 selling fees and some even as high as 10 In Britain agents fees range from 1 25 2 75 which is quite a staggering difference from our international counterparts There are two obvious areas to consider in relation to this firstly the house price will be higher in Britain than some countries which could mean the amount actually paid for a service may not be that different Secondly and most importantly the service that is provided will vary Whether it is due to multiple agents marketing or the involvement from an individual agent and the extent to which their service extends I am fully aware that at Bradleys we have always been exceptionally good value for money As our ranking on the independent estate agency review website www allAgents co uk highlights our focus at Bradleys is all about customer service We tailor a package to suit the client s needs and alongside that are varying packages with related fee options The most popular package tends to be our top of the range All Inclusive Fee Package which covers all aspects of a clients sale including upgraded marketing At the other end of the scale we have had a recent upsurge in vendors requesting the modern method of selling via Bradleys online auctions available at only 495 plus VAT I can t compare our service with our international counterparts but I can confidently say that at Bradleys understanding the clients needs and requirements and then being able

  • The Age Old Debate... - Bradleys Estate Agents | Property for sale in Devon, Cornwall & Somerset
    have enjoyed the benefits of purchasing property Few people want a market as it is in the South East and London at the moment a market destabilised by overseas buyers continuing to search for a safe haven for their money However a steady market as it is in the South West seems sustainable and sensible for everyone But returning to the question of investment if you suddenly won 100 000 on the lottery where would you look to invest that money property equities gilts or cash The pros and cons of UK property are well known The advantages of investment in property are that over time security of income and capital appreciation have historically provided the best returns as we will see later In addition it is a tangible asset that most of us feel we can identify with and decorate occasionally However it can be seen as illiquid reliant on tenants and intensive to manage Stocks and shares on the other hand are seen as very liquid easy to invest in you are not relying on our friends at the bank or surveyors however they are volatile and many people see the asset as remote as well as higher risk On the contrary gilts issued by a government are usually a fixed interest investment and are rated lower risk and as such the income paid usually reflects this Finally our friend cash It is very tangible stable liquid and divisible but there is no capital return on cash and as such it becomes negligible as an investment Given the above hugely abbreviated look at some asset classes the table below shows how property has outperformed the other asset classes over a period of time with residential coming top of the class There are of course many other types of

  • Buy and Buy Now! - Bradleys Estate Agents | Property for sale in Devon, Cornwall & Somerset
    are on our way into a normal and stable market where if a property is placed on to the market it will have to be correctly priced to obtain any interest from the very internet savvy buyers who can tell to within a few thousand pounds if a property s owner is being ambitious with their price or not This is where it is essential to use a good agent if you are thinking of selling and where the internet style agent will fall down You need expert professional advice from an agent with years of experience and comparable evidence to confirm the price being quoted So why buy now What about the risk of a price bubble Will mortgage rates go up Firstly buying now is the only thing to do as with Help to Buy still available a mortgage can be obtained at a very modest cost and whilst the current rock bottom interest rates will undoubtedly come to an end towards the end of this year or early next year Mark Carney the Governor of The Bank of England has committed to only slow and small increases to be sure of not damaging the improving economy The Mortgage Market Review has come in to force recently and this has seen Lenders be forced to look into the affordability of a mortgage for an individual s circumstances as well as if they just fit the lending criteria The effect of MMR is to create a massive back log in mortgage applications if dealing with a lender direct My advice is to use an Independent Mortgage Broker who is not hampered in the same way as the Lenders themselves I have heard the recent statistics from lenders are 5 weeks to gain an initial appointment and 17 weeks to issue a mortgage offer The Bradleys Mortgage Advisors are completely independent so can offer the best rates and get the offer out in 3 4 weeks under normal circumstances There is absolutely no need to be concerned about a price bubble There is much speculation in the press and from politicians about the housing market and if it is running the risk of overheating There is certainly a problem in London where the market is being fuelled in an unsustainable level mostly by foreign buyers looking to invest in the Capital I am pleased to hear that even London is now starting to slow slightly from what was happening in the first few months of the year Outside of London there was a small surge in activity early in the year but this is now just performing as a normal market Speaking as an agent who operates in Devon Cornwall and Somerset Bradleys have 33 offices covering from Taunton to Penzance so I am well placed to report on real figures that cover the whole region The first half of 2014 has seen both sales and exchange prices rise by 6K or 3 compared to the first half of 2013
