Our innovative use of video gets recognised!

This week’s Estate Agency Today magazine features us in an article about how new innovative estate agents are using video to promote their client’s properties. It’s always nice to be recognised for doing things differently and exploring new exciting ways to sell ourselves and our client’s homes.

Budget Latest – New Stamp Duty Thresholds Great News for Housing Market!

Great news today from George Osbourne who has revised the dreadful stamp duty thresholds brought in by none other than Gordon Brown. The new rules mean that the percentage stamp duty does not apply to the whole sum as in the old system, but is progressive, so avoiding the huge jumps in stamp duty that used to occur at the £250,000 and £500,000 marks. The new levels are:

– Nothing up to £125,000.

– 2% on the additional sum from £125,001 up to £250,000. (So if the house is £250,000, you pay 2% of £125,000 – £2,500)

– 5% on the additional sum from £250,001 to £925,000. (So if the house is £350,000 you pay the £2,500 above plus 5% of the extra £100,000, which is £5,000. Add the two together and you pay £7,500 in total.)

– 10% on the extra sum from £925,001 to £1.5 million.

– 12 % on the extra sum…

Almost £100,000 raised for the Isabel Hospice!

 

Wow………I have just found out that we raised just shy of £100,000 for the Isabel Hospice between the 20 of us that did the hike across the High Andes (and boy – they were very high!) in Peru. Here are a couple of pictures to give you a flavour of the trip and if you have any spare cash to help us reach the magic 100k the link is on the post below! A huge thanks to everyone that has supported me to date!

Doing the Inca Trail trek for Isabel Hospice

I’m off to Peru tomorrow to do the Inca Trail trek for the Isabel Hospice. Should be quite a trip as we climb through the high Andes as high as 15,500 feet. Am hoping my knees are up to it! If you have some loose change to donate then please do so at our group Just Giving page below;
