A light hearted blog from London, UK providing an insight into the British property market and the way agents work over here. Also focusing on web 2.0 technology and the power of online marketing.
Well I'm kinda overexcited right now, I just got a big delivery of groceries from my gorgeous friends Gia and Grant from Realseekr.com. I can't put into words how excited I am about my new goodies, so I made a video instead.....and to all those who have been waiting to hear my British accent - en...
I’ve harked on about it before, but it seems there are still plenty of agents who haven’t grasped the importance of property photos in a listing. Over at Real Estate Connect, it’s been a subject of debate at one of the panel sessions. Lorna Borenstein, president of Move Inc, said that their resea...
According to new figures from the Bank of England, in some parts of the UK as many as four in ten homebuyers pull out before they complete. I’m seriously resisting a sexual innuendo here, immature I know! The Bank of England said… “‘In the market for established homes, more transactions were fall...
This weekend I had a fabulous excuse to leave London for a few days, it was my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary (awwww true love). Inspired by the fabulous response to my last little walking tour, I remembered to pack the camera and get snapping as I spent some time in one of my favourite Br...
In the UK we have a site called Gumtree, it's a lot like CraigsList...an online classifieds site with ads from dating to house sales. Gumtree recently published a report examining today’s British rental market. The findings were very interesting and I'd be interested to hear if you think there ar...
I guess this would be a Localism post, but my neck o' the woods doesn't feature on Localism. That's one of the downsides of being a British gal posing as an Anaheim resident! But I thought I'd give y'all a little insight into my part of the world anyway, the glorious capital of the United Kingdom...
I love the debates on real estate business cards here in the rain. Some people thinks photos of agents with their pets are cheesy, others know some of their clients have come directly from the fact their card shows they are animal lovers. Some people say you should include a link to your blog on ...
Whilst first time buyers are struggling to get the funds to even put down a deposit, insanely rich (and quite good looking IMHO) Roman Abramovich has gone and bought his latest piece of real estate. One of those expensive London Hyde Park properties that fetch a few million? Err no. Try a £250,00...
In the Western world, Starbucks are everywhere. If you walk past a Starbucks and decide you fancy a mocha caramel extra shot wotsit but the queue looks too long, you can pretty much say ‘Meh, we’ll go to the next one’, knowing that in 5 minutes you’ll be at another one of their establishments. I’...
It’s always nice to win things, even if it’s a bit silly, so excuse us for a minute whilst we revel in our own glory. Yesterday, the month long poll ‘Euro 2008 - Portals‘ came to a close and Zoomf were crowned the champions. The poll, which was running at the Property Owl blog, was won with 35% o...
