What an interesting timeline re: property

In the 60’s, the average salary in the UK was £11k. Based on the price of properties, a person could buy a home after working for just over 4 months

In the early 2000’s, it would take a person 7 years and 4 months of working to buy their first property

The average salary in 2015 was £27k. If the value of money was regulated from the previous 50 years, the average salary should be £203k based on the average of £11k of the 60’s

You can see why its so difficult now for the younger generation to get on the housing market!

Our latest staging project in Essex

Below please see some pictures of our latest staging project in Essex.

It is a charming cottage in Colchester, larger than the average property of its type – but as it was empty, the rooms were not showing at their true potential.

We installed furniture and decorative pieces throughout the property – adding some colour, life and function to the space.

Have you ever thought of a digital business card?

I’ve just discovered a great new marketing tool – a digital business card that can be regularly updated – which is perfect for many businesses – including the Real Estate and Property Industry. It can help attract potential customers and help position your business as one thats embracing the future. You can use videos to showcase property of the week and get directly onto your customers mobile home screens.

See my link below to see how it works.

Styling your home

Not planning to move, but just want to breathe some life into your home? Maybe being at home all throughout lockdown has made you realise that the decor doesn’t work, or you have fallen out of love with your property?

We can help. We will do a full Interiors Style Consultation with you to find out about you, your preferences and lifestyle – and to view the home. This can be done in person, or via zoom online. We offer styling services on a room by room basis so you can just have one room styled, or the entire property!

Once we have agreed on the styles and decor preferences, we will create some mood boards for you to review, and approve. Once we have reviewed and discussed these options with you, we can create a full Interiors Style Consultation Report. This will highlight areas of concern and how we think they should be best addressed, and which services you may require.

It will go onto show you our furniture, decor and styling suggestions. This may include your existing furnishings and decor and enhance it, or be a completely new decor for when you want a total change! This can be delivered in a pdf with clickable links to purchase everything you require, or if you are local, we can purchase and install the items for you.

See below for some previous examples of styling ideas we have suggested to our clients.
