RE/MAX Sales & Lettings
How Much Is Your Home Worth?   Request a Valuation  

Potential is a magic word in property, and no wonder. As our home lives continue to evolve, we're examining every corner for how it can offer us more.

It’s widely recognised that the two most stressful events in life are getting married and moving home. Yet we often hear talk of that ‘dream wedding’ or ‘dream home’. RE/MAX Elite are estate agents, so no surprise then that our focus is on the latter of those two events.


We've all had that sense of all consuming joy when finding the home of our dreams and what a feeling it is! Excitement, anticipation and nerves all rolled into a single moment and much of it unquantifiable.

There's a lot that goes into a decision to buy, from emotional, financial and intellectual reasons to a healthy dose of gut feeling Whilst practical considerations like size, price and fittings certainly play their part, they all take a back seat to the most influential factor of all, how a home feels, is it 'the one'?


With all this sunshine mixed with snow showers, the weather may be confusing but one thing is for sure, Spring is springing. One of the biggest effects of lockdown on the 2020 property market was a massive surge of interest among buyers for gardens and balconies, and not just from green-fingered enthusiasts. People who'd never given gardens a second thought were suddenly sold on the value of being outside at home and the demand went through the roof.

“Put it on the Internet and wait for the phone to ring”. That’s perhaps how many people see an estate agent’s life, and there’s undoubtedly some mystery around precisely what agents do beyond putting a property on the market and showing people around.
