Property Refurbishment

Posted by  | Categories: More R&R, Property Management

3 bedroom semi-detached house.

 The property value was increased by 15%

& sold within 14 days.

The brief was to project manage the refurbishment of semi detached house prior to it being offered for sale.  There was a strict budget and time was tight to complete the project before the heart of the summer when the property would be looking its best.

3 bedroom country cottage.

 The rental income increased by 30%.

The task was to project manage the refurbishment of a country cottage on the clients estate. The cottage had not had any major works carried out for nearly 10 years and the client wanted to modernise the property to increase the potential rental income.


What is property management?

Posted by  | Categories: More R&R, Property Management

When I mention property management you may well be thinking of a service offered by estate agents to manage your rental portfolio.  We approach the service from a slightly different perspective.

For us it comes down to saving people time and money.  Why spend your weekends trying to find a tradesman, decorator or cleaner when we can use our network to place the right person in your home on your behalf.

We will contact the person who best suits your demands, meet with them at your property to obtain detailed quotations and only when you are happy with the costings will we will proceed with the project.

In cases where a trial period is required for household staff we will monitor this on your behalf and source another candidate should the relationship not work out for any reason.

Once we have a full undressing of your requirements we then act as your single point of contact for any future projects.

Tips for moving home

Posted by  | Categories: Hints & Tips

No wonder moving home is classed as one of the most stressful things one has to undertake.  There is so much to take care of.

Not only do you have to find an appropriate removal company from the hundreds of listings but then contemplate what is going and what’s not.  What are you going to do with all the stuff that you aren’t taking and then will you have to take time off work to take care of the move?

Sorry, I could go on but I’m sure you get the picture.  Here is a short guide on a few things to consider when your house is on the market.

A Magical Christmas Evening

Posted by  | Categories: More R&R

I had been looking forward to last weekend since Christmas time last year and once again the NSPCC East Cheshire Special Events Committee’s Christmas Concert was a delight.

The evening is set in one of the most perfect locations I could think of for a Christmas concert.  The decorations and ambiance at Capesthorne Hall is second to none.  As proud sponsors of the evening and feeling rather James Bond esque in my black tie get up I opened the door for Rebecca and we were immediately greeted by  happy faces, the Macclesfield youth brass band and a chilled glass of bubbles.
