Walsall Property Blog on Holiday

Keeping a blog updated can be an exhausting affair so I’ve decided to take a break especially, since the children have holidays.  The wedding season is also in full swing (I’m attending two weddings next week!!).  I hope to return to the blog towards the end of the month.

 

In the meantime, why not visit these property related websites to hone your property investor acumen?

http://www.landlordlaw.co.uk/ – This is a great resource of useful information, especially on legal issues.

www.periodproperty.co.uk is, as you can imagine, the place to find a thatched, listed or historic home, while www.propertyauctions.com lists dates and reserve prices on upcoming auctions plus tips for those bidding for the first time.

www.firstrungnow.com targets first-time buyers and has information on low cost properties for sale. Young buyers wanting to pool resources can find a co-buyer on www.sharedspaces.co.uk or www.co-buywithme.co.uk.

Whilst I’m away if there is anything you would like me to pick up on/ discuss/ write about upon my return please send me an email or message me via any of my social media sites.  Take care and happy holidays…

“Why should Walsall’s pensioners be forced to downsize? A question I received via social media a couple of weeks ago.  The mature member of a Walsall society came across my article I wrote at the start of the year (see article HERE), about Walsall pensioners feeling trapped in their homes.

There are around 24,000 home owning OAP’s in Walsall.

After working hard for a life time and buying a home for themselves and their family, the children have flown the nest and now they are left to rattle around in a big house. Many feel trapped in their large homes, hence I dubbed these Walsall home owning mature members of our society, ‘Generation Trapped’.

So, should we force OAP Walsall homeowners to downsize?

How far do Walsall people move house?
How far do Walsall people move house?

 “When Walsall people move home how far do they actually go?” This was a fascinating question asked by one of my clients the other week. Readers of my blog will know I love a challenge, especially when it comes to talking about the Walsall Property Market!

 For the majority, the response is not very far. It is much more common for homeowners and tenants in Great Britain to move across town than to the next town or county. Until now, it’s been hard to say how many homeowners and tenants moved from (and to) relatively far away to buy or rent their new home. However, I carried out some research and requested some statistics from the Royal Mail. What came back was very interesting to say the least!

A 2 bedroom semi detached house in the Leamore area of Walsall, currently marketed by Goodchilds (01922 312016). The property could be rented as it is, but it does have a very unique style about it, so I would recommend making changes to the decor, but it is not absolutely essential.
