Facts are stubborn things, but statistics are more pliable

The sage of Omaha famously said 'Price is what you pay. Value is what you get'. The term value might be defined on the following basis ; i. The regard that something is held to deserve; i.e the worth of something. ii. One's judgement of what is important in life. iii. Anestimate of the monetary worth. iv. Consider something to be important or beneficial. In property terms, you could argue that all four points apply, potentially in equal measure. We value what is important to us, price is set by supply and demand. In the words of Woodrow Wilson 'One cool judgment is worth a thousand hasty counsels. The thing to do is to supply light and not heat'. So where does this leave us, in these election filled spring days' Whilst market opinion and statistics change, facts, like beautiful buildings, remain. As Alan Moore so well put it 'I don't think you can separate a place from its history. I think a place is much more than the bricks and mortar that go into its construction. I think it's more than the accidental topography of the ground it stands on.' Regardless of the outcome in the first weeks of May, we will continue to sell lovely houses to delighted buyers, who will move for their own reasons but buy because a property makes their heart sing. Country houses, townhouses and cottages alike, the appeal of Salisbury and its countryside stands. The City of Salisbury, stands proudly within the landscape and is known as the 'City in the countryside'. Salisbury is awash with historic streets and alleyways, charming half-timbered buildings, myriad restaurants, cafes and bars and characterful shopping. It is also home to some wonderful schools, including two grammar schools. A progressive, historic city, lovely houses and a wonderful spring are facts, which are undisputed. Pundit prediction and opinion fills column inches but country house decisions are made for the next five to twenty-five years - the latest market statistics are a poor substitute for finding a forever house, or at least one that can be called home for the next important period. 2015 has seen lovely long periods of sunshine and gardens awash with colour, as spring takes hold. We have sold some gorgeous properties and will launching further country houses of note this spring/summer - whatever the climate, political or otherwise. 'As full of spirit as the month of May'.
