Can I rent a home with a pet?

Tue 07 Nov 2017

The quick answer is yes! However it can be difficult and it can often require extra negotiation between the applicant and landlord. Now we all love our pets and they are very much part of the family. Most of the time they bring us so much joy but when it comes to renting a home it can make it much harder. We live in Norfolk and without doubt we are a County of dog lovers, so what can we do to make it easier when renting?.

Bricks and mortar vs DIY agents by Benjamin-Thomas Ross

Thu 31 Aug 2017

We have all seen the quirky advertising pushed from DIY agents that seemingly offer deals too good to be true, and who doesn’t like a bargain? I’m the first one to hit the January sales, but selling your house isn’t quite the same. Our homes are often our biggest asset, so why would we risk a budget option, offering budget service, especially when it could end up costing more than we bargained for? To put things in perspective, let’s imagine we owned a flashy £250,000 Ferrari (if you do, good....

What will happen to the property market in 2017

Tue 07 Feb 2017

The market was a fluctuating and unpredictable one in 2016. Events such as Brexit, changes to stamp duty for 2nd home owners and the USA election delivered occasional blips in confidence. In contrast, rock bottom interest rates did encourage first time buyers and investors and therefore the lows were quickly overcome by interesting and unforeseen positive news such as the drop in unemployment figures and growth of the economy..

Max Sowerby comments post Brexit

Thu 30 Jun 2016

We have now had a week to start to see what effect the referendum has had on the Norfolk property market. To put things in perspective, since last Friday we have had more offers than in the same period last year and just slightly less sales being agreed, but many are in negotiation. Undoubtedly leaving the EU will remain in the headlines for some time to come, but looking at things from a factual basis we see no reason to be concerned about buying or selling property:.

The 7 Golden Rules of Buy to Let Investment

Wed 22 Jun 2016

I think we can all safely say that Landlords and Buy to Let regulation are two topics hot on the Governments to-do list. When I say to-do list, I mean “let’s make it a little harder”. With increased tax restrictions, stamp duty changes and a catalogue of legislative changes that seems to change almost daily, now more than ever landlords need to be rigorous with their investment choices. The Chancellor has restricted mortgage interest tax relief and made it increasingly difficult to off....

Why 95% of Home owners still use traditional Estate Agents

Tue 21 Jun 2016

The broadcast media is awash with new online estate agents who claim to sell your house for a fraction of the costs. Calculations of the potential savings are being distributed with abandon. The current statistics show that over 95% of home owners still use the tried and tested estate agency model. So are the new kids on the block just starting to attract smarter consumers, or is the enticement of a potentially cheaper fee covering over potholes that carry potentially serious consequences for....

Golden Triangle Open Day

Thu 19 Nov 2015

The Golden Triangle has been in high demand from home buyers since the 1980’s and demand continues to outweigh supply as homes don’t often come to market and when they do they sell very quickly. The open day at Havelock Road highlighted this and left some home buyers disappointed and unable to make an offer as their own houses were not ready to sell. It showcased how important it is to position yourself as a ready and able buyer. .

Is it all about location, location, location?

Thu 29 Oct 2015

The simple answer is Yes location does matter. Buying a property in the right location if you are looking to get a good return on your investment is the key to maximising the price. Why? Popular locations usually have a low supply of available properties on the market, due to high demand properties will often sell not long after the for sale board is put up. So when it comes to selling the property again you shouldn’t be short of interest and potential buyers. .

"I would just like to express my view on the quality of service delivered by Sowerbys. I had Laura Newstead over to evaluate my property at 9am on, 17th Sept. By the end of the day my property was on the market with the first viewing booked. The communications with Laura Newstead, Chana Watson and Michaela Hall have been fast and professional. I have leased property through Sowerbys in the past and was very impressed with the service then. I am pleased to say that, so far, the professionalism and efforts of your staff has been outstanding!
