As Christmas draws near, I am so proud to be supporting our local foodbanks. Sadly, more and more locals are needing this service and following my shift at a local foodbank last week, I saw first-hand why this is such a worthwhile cause. All my offices are a drop off point for the local foodbank with a hope we can make a small difference to this charity. My top article showcases this cause and what they are desperately in need of should you be kind enough to help.

Warm regards

I'm still here

20/10/2017
It's been an incredible month or so for us.  We have been winning multiple awards, based on extensive mystery shopping exercises across the UK, and even had a whole afternoon with the formidable Karren Brady ( from The Apprentice and West Hams CEO) which was  insightful, to say the least!

Anyway, see you in November.

Warmest regards

It's getting cold out there!

15/09/2017
So Summer has nearly gone and the Autumnal coolness is creeping in!

The housing market is starting to pick up nicely after the seasonal lull and we are seeing a big increase in motivated sales and letting applicants on our books for us to find their dream home! If you are looking to sell, or a Landlord with a vacant property, then do contact your local office for an honest market appraisal.

I hope you enjoy this month's newsletter.

Off on holiday?

04/08/2017
Welcome to August's newsletter. Whilst many are on holiday at this time, we are working hard to get our properties looking amazing for when the rush happens in late August / early September.

Many people feel that August is a bad month to put your property on the market but on the contrary, I believe it is a great time as so many people start their hunting at the end of August and set up their viewing arrangements in order to move by Christmas, which comes around quickly...yikes!

Enjoy the rest of the Summer.

At last, it's here - sorry for the delay this month!

21/07/2017
At last, Summer is here and for most, the holiday season us upon us!

Lot's of informative pieces in this July's newsletter and most certainly something for everyone!

There has never been a better time to buy or rent a property so to see our latest stock, or to understand the value of your property (both selling or renting), then click on '...a refreshing change' (top right of this page) and search to your hearts content - note the INSTANT VALUATION TOOL to gain a better understanding of the value of your property, its a clever little gadget!

Enjoy the Summer.

Bored of Brexit and Politics yet?

19/06/2017
What an interesting month it has been in the UK!

One thing is for certain, that I will never discuss politics in any of my content as the UK continues to be divided as to who should rule our great nation (far too dangerous a topic to open)! However, the future landscape could be an interesting one but the housing market continues to remain strong and stable (sorry, I couldn't resist).

More positive and interesting topics for me such as the fact that 2m people have actually seen their neighbours naked - see, far more interesting things to discuss than Brexit-related stuff!

Until next month.
regards
Simon

You will love this.... I'm sure!

10/05/2017
Lots of lovely content this month.  Mortgage fixed rates are at a long term low right now, so a perfect time to buy the home of your dreams!

If you are looking to buy, then we have lots of new housing stock to sell and even launched a few new build developments suitable for most price brackets, and can even accommodate the Help to Buy Scheme.

If you are a landlord then new tax legislation is possibly going to make life a little tougher over the coming years.  Have you ever thought of by-passing the new tax legislation and buy your next investment property under a Limited Company?

Anyway, have a great month and I look forward to seeing you in June.

Sir Clive touched me somewhere special

18/04/2017
Whilst you might think I attended a conference for those who are follicle challenged, you are wrong!

In March I was fortunate enough to secure the services of Sir Clive Woodward, the only living English World Cup winning manager, to help me in business!!

Having several hours with Sir Clive was a dream come true and lots of great ideas and aspirations to make Conran Estates and Conran Financial become an even better experience for our customers.

Enjoy the read.

We Have Come of Age

07/03/2017

On 17th March we celebrate Conran Estates’ 18th birthday. Where has this time has gone? It seemed like only yesterday I opened my first office in Lewisham and now I have four local offices encompassing five divisions: Sales, Lettings, Property Management, Land & New Homes and Mortgages!

 

As with every business, we’ve had our ups and downs and it has been a fun and exciting journey. Running a business has been the best education one could have hoped for. Back in 1999, with a head full of hair, I went into the business as an experienced Independent Financial Adviser but with little knowledge of Estate Agency. Today I sit here (without a hair on my head) as an estate agent, letting agent, marketer, copy writer, the list is endless!

 

I sign off thanking all of Conran Estates clients, customers, staff and suppliers. Without you we wouldn’t have been able to provide 18 years of first class service and with you, here’s to the next 18 years of World Class Customer Services!

Here it is again!

19/01/2017

Happy New Year.  Yesterday I was truly privileged to spend the day with Debra Searle MBE.

Debra is a true hero and I am proud to donate the top story to her most amazing journey.  She had a lot of news coverage at the time, but her story is based on her challenge to row across the Atlantic to Barbados against twelve other rowing teams.  However her husband pulled out after two weeks and she completed the journey solo, taking 14 weeks!

This little video is a must watch albeit not very estate agency but hey-ho! 

Until next month.

Simon

Just before you fill yourself with Turkey (or a veggie option)

07/12/2016

That time of year again. By now I should know the score. Eat too much, drink my fair share of booze then come January, join the gym and donate a tidy monthly sum for many months on something I know I should use but don't!  Fairly standard behaviour really.

I wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Enjoy my ramblings!

Mortgage Increases on their way?

03/11/2016

Welcome back to our newsletter.  Loads of interesting material for you this month. If you presently have a mortgage I would strongly suggest you take a review as rates may be changing - look at the top article for more information!

Anyway, no more boring chit-chat, I have a presidential election to watch over the coming week.  Not sure I would choose either of them but I have a feeling one is more dangerous than the other!

Until next month.

Simon Hughes
MD

It's that time again!

06/10/2016

Welcome back for another month of interesting stuff about anything property!!

Traditionally this month is one of the most popular months of the year as both buyers and renters look to get into their property and settle before Christmas (can't believe I have used that word as early as October!).

Anyway, whether you are a buyer, seller, renter, landlord, property magnate, investor, land banker or even just interested in property, I hope you enjoy.

Until next month.

p.s. an interesting fact for you, did you know that half of all UK renters are over 46........ I was amazed too!

September

05/09/2016

What on earth is going on?  I have to say I was incredibly concerned for the housing market (despite my brave face) especially when coupled with the expectation of the seasonal low that is August, but bizarrely it has been our best August on record!

Maybe GB's successful Olympics have put some jubilance back into the market, or maybe that society now realise that "Brexit" is simply a word and won't really change much as people still need to live in accordance with their lifestyles?  Whatever the reason is I am not complaining!

Some great news for landlords and tenants. In my top article, it turns out that our area offers the best yields to you which is great news to all of us. Furthermore it also suggests that it is well priced for tenants too! Beats storing your cash in a bank at least!

Until next month

Simon Hughes

It's August!

04/08/2016

With today's reduction of the Bank of England base rate it has never been a cheaper time to buy a house using a mortgage.  There are some serious deals to be had, so if you are looking to buy then there is no better time than right now. 

Incidentally, we have just launched our 'instant online valuation service' so if you want to know what your property is worth (it values for sales and lettings too!) then simply go to www.conranestates.co.uk

Enjoy the read.

July Broadcast

11/07/2016

What an interesting time we are experiencing in the UK presently!  Uncertainty is very much how the majority of people feel when it comes to the housing market but there are many positives such as decreasing mortgage rates making home ownership more affordable right now.

I feel that now is a fantastic time to buy as once the UK secures a few trade deals and our government settles down, confidence will return and house prices are only going one way, whether we like it or not..... that is UP.  Furthermore, a weak Pound is bringing monies in from overseas keeping prices very stable, even in an uncertain market!

I think that those who feel house prices will contract are so wrong.  We are a small island whereby demand still significantly outstrips supply and as such a reduction in house values is highly improbable.

Until next month.

April Broadcast

09/04/2016

Spring is now here (as are the April showers) which is historically the best and most common time to do 'house-stuff'.  Whether this be buy, sell, let or simply undertake minor or major renovation and home improvements. Whatever your intent, there is something here for everyone!

If you simply fancy a bit of brunch in the morning then Davy's in Greenwich can 'wet your appetite' so have a look at their offering under 'Best of the Brunch'. You wont be disappointed!

Adding Value...... What a Refreshing Change

14/03/2016

Conran Estates will be 17 years old this coming Thursday and I have to say I really don't quite know where this time has gone (or my hair for that matter!!).

My job is to ensure our customers get great value when using our services, after all, if they don't we lose them!  Therefore, we now have our very own, employed and CRB checked, maintenance man and his "very cool" A-Team style van (soon to be wrapped in our brand).  From this day onwards our landlords will benefit from 'Free call-outs and free labour for on the spot repairs'.  This is a genuine service and will reduce stress and costs for our managed landlords whilst giving us full control of all maintenance work thus ensuring happier tenants. If you are not a landlord of ours but wish to benefit from this service then feel free to contact us and we can put this right for you!

At a time when many estate agents still add money onto their maintenance contractors invoices to gain more cash from their Landlords (yes this does happen and there is a legal challenge happening against a certain London estate agent), Conran Estates have gone in another direction by helping our customers........ yet another refreshing (and unique) change!!

Until next month.

February Broadcast

05/02/2016

This month I cover a wide range of subjects from 'the most annoying neighbours list' to one of the most popular areas to now live in South-East London being Brockley, where we will shortly have our new office... yippee!

Also I have commissioned loads of really useful short videos based on 'How-to Guides' such as a beginners guide to becoming a Landlord, buying property and selling property and a whole heap more.  I cover everything you must know and these are now on www.conranestates.co.uk so please have a look, they really are useful I promise!

Until next time.

This month I am showcasing one of Greenwich's most renowned businesses being Grant Saw Solicitors. Find out more about them underneath........ very interesting stuff.

The housing market is changing big-time for various sectors such as Landlords.  If you are a landlord or thinking of joining this lucrative market then I recommend you open the article relating to this as there are 5 changes you need to be made aware of.

I hope you have a fantastic Christmas and I wish you a Happy 2016.

The November Broadcast

05/11/2015

This month I have the pleasure to introduce you to James Davy, Chairman of local wine Bar, restaurant and wine merchants here in Greenwich. They are celebrating 145 years of trading and after you read our interview you can take advantage of a special deal to help them celebrate!

On the property front, the market is simply crazy.  Prices are at an unprecedented high and if you are thinking of selling it is a great time to take professional advice and prepare marketing to take advantage.

If you are buying the good news is that Mortgages are still really well priced and lenders are slightly more flexible too.

Enjoy the read.

The October Broadcast

08/10/2015

I write this with a tear rolling down my face as England lose to the mighty Aussies (Rugby).  Still, having a Welsh surname surely I am eligible to support Wales now??

There is so much going on at the moment in our industry and if you are a landlord of ours, I hope you have read the recent emails regarding two big pieces of regulation which will affect you being a landlord. I have written my first article as a summary for landlords but if you want more information please do make contact as my teams would love to answer any questions you have.

If you are thinking of investing in property and becoming a landlord then you must speak to us or a fellow expert.  There are new EU laws coming in next year which will make this challenging and I recommend strongly you speak to an expert as you may wish to expedite this process before the new rules come in.  I will be writing more about this in the next edition. 

If you are a tenant, now is the time to check your heating works as I fear GasSafe engineers will be busy when the frost comes so beat the rush!!!

Until November.

Historically the most popular time to 'deal' in property is immediately following an election and it is certainly no different now!  The market is really strong at the moment and whether a buyer, seller, tenant or landlord this market seems to suit all which seems bizarre and yet true.

I wish you a great, and warm, Summer. Enjoy.

Welcome to the December Newsletter

03/12/2014

Lots in this action-packed newsletter however my concentration for December is to save people huge amounts of money. Therefore, if you have a mortgage and it is nearing or past rate renewal, then you must read the first article.  We are presently saving lots of people lots of money as rates have dramatically reduced recently.

Welcome to the November Newsletter

03/11/2014

Welcome to November.  As the rain lashes down there are mixed messages in the Housing Market.

Statistics are suggesting that prices are ever so slightly below the peak of the market but it is heavily suggested that in the coming months house prices will be on the move up again. 

A bit of stagnation in prices won't do any harm for a strong housing market in the UK.  At the very least it will (hopefully) stop some agents massively over-inflating asking prices......... I hope!

If only I had a crystal ball!

Warm regards

Simon Hughes
Managing Director

Welcome to the October Newsletter

16/10/2014

September brought us the lowest number of applicants looking for property in 2014 being 70% down from the peak of February.  You would normally think this means a lull in the housing market but bizarrely we sold more property in September than we did in February!

Work out the statistics for yourself but it tells me that there are more serious buyers and renters in the market than at any other point this year.

Our local market is strong despite lower numbers, which has to be good now prices have somewhat stabilised.

Enjoy the read and don't forget that we don't want you receiving unwanted mail so feel free to unsubscribe if you no longer wish to receive our newsletter.

Some great news received earlier this week as an ex-Conran member of staff has been named in the South African Cricket Test squad. I wish Stiaan van Zyl good luck with the present world number one test team (he is a better cricketer than an estate agent!!). Onto the world of property, as it continues to hit the headlines in the UK's major newspapers. It seems now the majority of the UK is benefitting from the so-called bubble we have recently experienced in London as open days seem to be the order of the day and multiple offers are presented for every property! The good news is that the London market is calming down slightly as more stock comes onto the market!!! Enjoy the read. Regards Simon

With property regularly hitting the headlines, where is the property market going? Only yesterday The Sunday Times reported on the desperate plight of purchasers and the best way to get into a strong buying position. Believe it or not, most estate agents do not like the market as it presently is. It is not a long term healthy market and if it continues with the same upward trend then we will see a bubble ready to burst which is no good for the long term stability of our economy!! In the meantime I hope you enjoy our popular newsletter (readership is over 19,000 now!!). Enjoy Simon

With the Diamond Jubilee only a week behind us, Euro 2012 kicking off last Friday and then of course the highlight of 2012 being the Olympics in London. You just have to be proud to be in the UK. Will all this help our economy though? Enjoy the read.

April

20/04/2012
Another month passes and we are almost half way through the year. April is a great month for the Royal Borough of Greenwich with the Cutty Sark being opened by her Majesty the Queen next Wednesday and the London Marathon this Sunday to which our Managing Director is running!! Enjoy the read

March

12/03/2012
Another month has flown by. Harry is back from his first Royal Tour with everyone adoring his 'non-royal' ways and loving the cheeky manner in which he conducts being a Royal. England narrowly beating the French at Rugby in their own back yard. Some politician having a drunken brawl in the House of Commons bar and of course the normal economic news which is becoming boring now. Enjoy the read and we hope you find it interesting. Until April.

February Newsletter

15/02/2012
Where did January go? This year seems as though it's going to fly-by. So what has happened since our last newsletter? Greenwich has become the Royal Borough of Greenwich, this should be good for house prices! Oh yes and still bad news in all the press (if you still read the sensational headlines)that we are heading for recession come April 2012. More importantly though, our MD is doing the London Marathon and would really appreciate your help, have a look at his embarrassing plea for help below!
