Make a splash in your home with antique salvage

Fri, 01/24/2014 - 02:20 -- Word Smith
More and more home buyers are turning to antique salvage to give their home that personal stamp.

It’s very popular to be ‘green’ and programmes such as Kirsty Allsop’s Home Made Britain have made arts & crafts popular again too. Now it appears that salvage is all the rage. It appeals to people’s sense of worthiness ie being green and the element of recyclability means it is good for the pocket, too. Designers and architects love period features and finding fixtures and fittings that fit in with the age of a house, make salvage yards increasingly popular.

How to avoid mortgage rejection by getting the right advice upfront

Fri, 01/24/2014 - 01:57 -- Word Smith

Even if a lender is prepared to lend a large sum of money, you need to know you can afford the monthly payments. If you are with a good estate agent you trust, they will be able to advise you on which lender is right for you.

How to save time and money and still get your dream home using Chimney Pots, your friendly online estate agency

Tue, 01/14/2014 - 00:53 -- Word Smith
Using chimney pots online estate agency saves you time and money

They estimate it costs between £5000 - £10,000 to move home, what with stamp duty, solicitors fees, conveyancing fees, surveys, removal costs and mortgage fees so it ‘s vital you get it right and make sure it’s the right move for you. Part of that process – I literally think of it like building the foundation stones of a new home – is getting it right from the beginning, then you’ll find the rest has a better chance of falling into place too.

The first step is to visit a website, or an estate agent, pick up a magazine or find out about houses for sale in the area you want to buy.
