At last, moving day has arrived. After the months of being on the market and waiting for the solicitors paperwork to arrive the big day has come to pack up your house ready to start your new adventure. 

I have compiled a brief moving day checklist to help your move go as smoothly as possible:
*Have a plan and make sure everyone knows whats happening - What time the removal men are due? When do we need to vacate the property? Who is doing what? By having all this information in hand you will be able to make the whole process a lot easier and help keep any stress at bay. 

*Speak to your neighbours - Let your neighbours know what is happening. If you are in a flat there will be a lot of noise, plus there could be parking disruptions, Lorries and extra cars. 

*What do I need to do with our keys? - On moving day most people only focus on collecting keys and forget about there own keys. Discuss this with your Estate Agent a few days before you move to find out what's the best situation for you and your buyers. The chances are your Estate Agent will have some keys from when they conducted viewings on the property. So normally you are free to lock up and post through the letter box. Always best to be 100% certain though. Very important if you have an alarm make sure you leave the codes!

*Change of Address - From banks to the DVLA, there will be plenty of people you will need to inform. Don't forget to also arrange your redirection order at the Post Office. 

*Inform your suppliers - Make sure you speak to your suppliers about your move, including the local council, water, gas and electric plus phone line/internet providers. Make sure you also take final meter readings for your utility companies. 

*Leave Instructions - People love to have information and booklets about how things work. Maybe leave information about how to set and unset the alarm, how to use the cooker, information about bins and recycling. This is not necessary, but its certainly a nice thing to do. 

*An 'ESSENTIALS' box - Make sure you have a box full of essentials for moving day, from tea bags to long life milk, a kettle to mugs, phone chargers and even a packet of biscuits. This box is a must have to help relax once the move is completed. The last thing you need at the end of the day is having to root through boxes to find these items. 

*Prepare some Lunch - On moving day you will be up early and finish late so it is important to make sure you have some lunch and drinks available. The adrenaline of moving will not get you through the whole day. Take some time to recharge your batteries. A flask of tea always goes down well with your removal men too! 

*Have a Takeaway - At the end of the busy moving day, don't bother to cook. Treat yourself to a takeaway from a local restaurant. That way you can relax and put your feet up ready to begin your new life in your new home. 

*Check the house - After all the time spent packing, many people still end up leaving things in the property. So before you close the door for the last time make sure you have checked all cupboards, garden shed and most important the loft. 

*Take a minute - Moving day is thought to be one of the most stressful things you do in life, but don't forget to take a minute and remember the happy memories you made in the home you are leaving behind. Then its time to look forward to all those happy memories you will be making in your new property. It won't take long to unpack the boxes, settle down and start to enjoy making your new property, a home.
Moving home is such an exciting time and seeing people move home gives me such a buzz. The joy I see in people when they collect the keys for there new home is something I always feel honored to have played a part in helping them move home. 
If you require any information about moving day and the process please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to help.

Lovely House in Peverell

We are delighted to be marketing this lovely family home on the edge of Peverell/Mannamead border. New onto the market for a Guide Price of £240,000 - £250,000 this property has undergone a face lift inside and out.

I have attached the link and a few photos to show you whats on offer. 

Home Park Avenue In Peverell

Alan Cummings have started advertising this 3 bedroom family home in Peverell situated in the popular street of Home Park Avenue at a price of £200,000.

The property comprises 2 good sized double bedrooms and a single bedroom, 2 reception rooms, breakfast room and kitchen this property offers a spacious floor plan. 

Compared to some of the recent Peverell listings this property would appear to be a good price and neighbouring properties selling between £190,000 - £210,000 I would suggest this property will not be on the market for long. 

I have attached the link and more than happy to answer any questions you may have about comparable properties.

BUSY WEEK in the Peverell Property Market

The last 7 days have been extremely busy within the Peverell Property Market

Over the last seven days there have been 14 NEW INSTRUCTIONS and 2 Price Reductions, from these instructions 1 property has been sale agreed within the first 7 days of marketing. 

Its great to see so many properties coming onto the market within this ever popular postcode. I have attached some links below to some of the newest listings and my thoughts regarding these properties. 

Broad Park Road, £220,000
3 bedroom Terraced property, in need of some updating but a lovely spacious floor plan. 
Properties within the road have been selling anywhere between £200,000 - £250,000. 

Churchill Way, £199,950
3 Bedroom Semi Detached with driveway and garage. Beautifully presented throughout. 
This house is lovely and looking at comparable properties will not be around long. 

Belair Road, £182,950
3 Bedroom Terraced house with a lovely spacious floor plan. 
This house is sold already and to be honest I am not surprised, price to sell and beautifully presented this house was always going to sell quickly. 

Glendower Road, £180,000
A 4 bedroom property in need of refurbishment. 
This house requires a lot of work but that hasn't scared off the buyers, already attracting interest and potential for someone to either have a lovely family home or potentially an investor to buy and turn into a modern refurbished property. Recent sales in Glendower Road started at around £215,000 all the way up to £240,000/£250,000 depending on the presentation. 

Gifford Terrace Road, OIEO £120,000
2 Bedroom apartment, beautifully presented throughout. 
This is a lovely flat in Peverell, close to Hyde Park shops and Mutley Plain, this would make a great first time buy or buy to let property. Another flat in the road sold very quick so I would imagine this flat is also going to sell quickly. 

If anyone has any questions regarding any other properties within the Peverell postcode please feel free to email me and I will be happy to help.

Spacious 4 Bedroom House

Cross Keys have begun marketing this 4 bedroom spacious family home in Rosslyn Park Road for a price of £254,950.

The property has a fantastic kitchen and an enclosed rear garden. Recent sales in the area of 4 bedroom homes would suggest this property should be marketed between £230,000 - £250,000 so this property is priced at the higher level of this and will be interesting to see what it achieves.

I will keep you informed, I have attached a link to see the full details on the website.

Former Doctors Surgery in Peverell

Glendower Surgery in Peverell has come on the market with Maitlands for Offers in Excess of £150,000. 

The large spacious accommodation is arranged over 3 floors and offers a selection of reception rooms, potentially 6 bedrooms and 3 WC's. The property however at present does not have a bathroom.

This property requires plenty of work to be turned back into a family home or could even potentially be converted into 2 flats subject to planning but what a fantastic project for someone to keep them busy for the next few months. 

This link will take you through to the full details on the website

Two Peverell Semi's have come to the Market

Alan Cummings have started marketing these two spacious semi detached family home. One property in Burnham Park Road is being marketed at £260,000 and the other semi in Brean Down Road has come on at £270,000. 

Having looked at comparable properties in the area I would suggest that both of these properties are priced at a slightly higher level of where they should be marketed. However with the current interest in the Peverell property market and the fact that both of these properties come with driveway and garages these properties could find themselves a buyer. I will be keeping my eye on these two to see exactly how they get on. 

I have attached links to both

Brean Down Road, Peverell - On the Market for £270,000
3 Bedroom Semi Detached Family Home

Burnham Park Road, Peverell - On the Market for £260,000
3 Bedroom Semi Detached Family Home
