Please support my Bed Race for the Isabel Hospice

I am organising a charity event for The Isabel Hospice and am writing to ask if you would be prepared to support it, either by coming along, or by making a small donation to support it.

There are full details on BigBlackHen.com’s Facebook page (link below) and the attached flyer but basically it is called Wacky Races and is a bed/pram/trolley/wheelbarrow race in fancy dress that we are holding at the Woodman pub in Wild Hill just outside Essendon (AL9 6EA) on Sunday the 5th October around 1pm. As well as the race there will be a BBQ, auction of pledges and sporting/music memorabilia and the bar will be open all afternoon. It should be a fun day!

Help – running out of houses to sell!

Had a crazy three weeks with ten properties going under offer – including this large family house in Hertford Heath. Running out of properties to sell! It seems that we sell things pretty much as soon as we get them so anyone saying the housing market has run out of steam isn’t selling in Hertford or Welwyn Garden City.

Capital flight causing house price rises

Yesterdays Telegraph had an interesting report from Savills saying that capital flows out of the overheating London property market are driving up prices in commuter belt and that is definitely happening in Hertfordshire. The large majority of people I show around houses in Hertford, Welwyn Garden City and surrounding areas are moving out of London to avoid the overcrowding and to cash in on the fantastic prices they are getting for their properties. The effect is that every house we sell has multiple bidders and often goes at or above asking price. http://bit.ly/1onc2MA

The top 10 reasons for a house sale being delayed

I just came across this list of reasons why a sale is delayed though in our experience the top three are 1) banks taking forever to get a valuation and then more time to reach mortgage offer 2) solicitors moving at a snails pace and 3) management companies for leasehold properties taking forever to get back with answers to simple questions and then charging through the nose for the information.
