Spring is in the Air...

Spring is apparently in the air. Alfred Lord Tennyson, several years before being overcome by the blood-lust of the Charge of the Light Brigade, put quill to parchment and summed it up rather well. In the spring a fuller crimson comes upon the robin's breast In the spring the wanton lapwing gets himself another crest In the spring a livelier iris changes on the burnish’d dove; In the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love. There is something about the first signs of spring. The weather starts to get warmer, the days get lighter, the spring flowers come out and everyone gets that little kick of sunlight that just makes us feel a little bit happier and more positive about everything. Spring is traditionally when the property market gets into its stride and this is very much in evidence in the suburbs. West End folk are generally a law unto themselves and by and large the property market here is less seasonal than you would expect. However, it is fair to say that nothing improves a property viewing as much as a little bit of warmth, the sun streaming through a window and a general feeling of wellbeing. If you are marketing or considering marketing your property then now is the time to play to your strengths. Clean those windows, draw those curtains and place a vase of daffs somewhere prominent. If there is any outside space at all, put a pot or two of something colourful out. This is all rather obvious stuff and ultimately many of our buyers can see through the most Stygian gloom that some flats present themselves in. We pride ourselves on being able to sell any flat in any condition at any time of the year, but sometimes it is nice to have a little help. Tennyson’s wider poem is about homecoming and the pleasure the main character takes in returning home. Of course, this is how it should be and if your property is welcoming then everyone feels uplifted. If your fancy is lightly turning to thoughts of selling then please get in touch, I would love to hear from you.
