April 2018

Welcome to the Spring edition of our View magazine.

Inside you’ll find a selection of houses and apartments

for sale and to let, both in Cambridge and the

surrounding villages. There are also details of some of

the brand new homes that we are currently marketing.

As well as available properties, we take

a look at why the kitchen is the most

important room in the house when it comes

to selling (with some stunning examples)

and Jane Bailey discusses why it pays to be

on the case when it comes to chains. We

also highlight our Feefo feedback system

which gives our clients the chance to leave

feedback on any aspect of the service they

receive from us.

Now that Spring is officially here, we’re

already seeing a big increase in viewings.

It’s traditionally the busiest time of the year

and we are delighted to have such a good

selection of properties for sale and to


both at our Cambridge office and our


in Great Shelford.

take the stress out of

buying and selling

So how do we make sure a chain stays

together? Well, here is my list of top tips to

ensure a smooth sale.

Paperwork, paperwork,

paperwork. If you are selling,

get your initial paperwork

done early – a solicitor

cannot send out a draft

contract until you have filled

out the forms they need to

check you are who you say

you are. There is no point insisting on a fast

exchange of contracts if you delay the start

of the process.

“Many people think

they have sold when

they accept an offer.”

If you’ve had work done to the house, make

sure you have the guarantees or building

regulation sign-off to prove that everything

has been completed properly.

On the buyer’s side, providing the right

paperwork on time is key to getting a

mortgage offer quickly. Mortgage offers take

more time than you think. If that utility bill is

out of date by the time you send it, you will

have to start again

I was recently asked what was the biggest

property chain I’ve found myself working in?

Last year our Cambridge office had a chain with

12 properties. Agreed, that is pretty unusual, but

this particular deal was a split chain where one of

the couples in the chain each had a house to sell,

adding to the numbers involved.

That’s 12 different sets of buyers (20 individuals,

as many were couples), 12 surveyors, 12 solicitors

and countless chances for the deals to fall flat.

Jane Bailey,

Cambridge Office

It wasn’t the most straightforward. but we got

that deal over the line. It was nice to hear from

our client afterwards that they felt it definitely

wouldn’t have gone through without us.

Many people think they have sold when they

accept an offer. However, until contracts have

been exchanged, either side can pull out of the

sale, buyer or seller. And, across the country,

35% of agreed sales fall through, not only causing

distress to at least one side but also incurring

expensive solicitor and surveyor fees.

Communication is king. With a chain,

making sure that milestones are reached at

the right time is vital. With the rise of online

estate agents and solicitors, talking to a

real person about eliminating a blockage in

the sales pipeline is becoming more

and more difficult. Having someone

on your side who can talk to (and

badger) the different estate agents,

solicitors, surveyors and other

professionals is really important

Don’t underestimate the importance of

your agent’s office. This is the place that

surveyors come to get access to conduct

the survey. It is also the place where keys

can be held, ready to be handed over to the

buyer as soon as completion takes place.

Having someone on hand who knows the

sale inside out, definitely helps to keep

things on track.

“Mortgage offers

take more time

than you think.”

smarten up your kitchen

It’s not just the likes of Gordon Ramsay, Nigella Lawson and Jamie Oliver who love spending time in the

kitchen. Over the years we’ve seen plenty of prospective buyers fall head over heels with a home after

laying eyes on a well-designed, stylish kitchen. If a kitchen has the wow factor buyers often develop the

‘we want it now factor’.

Think about it though for a minute. We spend a lot of time in our kitchen, especially if it is spacious enough

to include a breakfast /dining area. It’s often where we start the day, where families socialise and of course

it’s a great spot to hang out at a party. It’s been said that life is often created in bedrooms but lived out in


We’re often asked by vendors what’s the most important room from a buyer’s perspective. In our experience,

we’d have to say it’s usually the kitchen.

If you are going to spend money getting your home ready to market think carefully about how your kitchen

looks, feels and if it needs upgrading. If you need inspiration, just take a look at some of these stunners

from houses that have been on the market with us recently.

“We spend a lot of time in our kitchens, especially if it is

spacious enough to include a breakfast /dining area.”

Renting out property

It’s a business

not a love affair


No one loves a cheap skate. It’s

fair to say that you will very likely

be financially better off in the long

term by spending more at the

outset. It doesn’t have to be “highend”,

just reasonably good quality.

For example, when buying paint


Another thing to consider when

initially kitting out your property is

the decor, carpets, curtains et cetera.

In general terms neutral colours

usually work best since they appeal

to the masses. And they’re easy to

coordinate with when you’re new

If you’re interested in the buy

to let business for the sake of

investment and financial gain, then

it’s important to “keep it strictly

business”. Don’t take a viewer not

wanting to move in personally or get

annoyed when a tenant decides to

move out.

3We know you’ve heard it

before but location, location,

location. Tenants, especially

busy professionals, love a

good location. It needs to be

convenient to transportation

(the nearer to a train station

the better) as well as shops and

increasingly cafes and coffee

shops. And if it’s convenient

to schools, green spaces,

restaurants, cinemas or the

theatre then even better.

When making your purchase discard the


things that might be attractive to you if you

were going to live in the property. What

matters is selecting a property that will be

attractive to the masses.


When you rent out your property ensure

that it’s fitted out to a good standard. Good

quality fittings will not only attract good

quality tenants, they will also attract better

rental values. And as the years go by you

will find yourself spending less on repairs

and upgrades. Be warned though we’ve

seen many a landlord pay dearly for cheap

fittings/materials and/or cheap labour.

6Another example is washing machines. Buy a cheap washing machine (let’s face it, you can

get them very cheap these days) and don’t be surprised if you only get a year or two out of

it before you’re spending on (not so cheap) repairs. Spend a bit more on something like a

Bosch and you can typically expect to get 10 years out of it – and probably with no repairs at

all. The Bosch certainly works out cheaper in the long run, so works out far cheaper! It’s also

a better machine and more of a pleasure to use, and tenants appreciate these things. (And

we all love not having to arrange a time to let engineers in to carry out repairs and wait in for
