Ready, Steady, Grow

May has sprung upon us, the days are getting longer and warmer which means that Summer is on its way and it’s time to tidy up spring plants, plant out summer flowers and get planning for autumn. It’s also a great time to plant herbs, as plants will establish quickly in warm soil, just remember to keep them watered if the weather turns dry.

With National Gardening Week behind us, our gardens should be a canvas of colour, you don’t need to be an expert in gardening, Charlie Dimmock and Alan Titchmarsh had to start somewhere!

May is the perfect sowing month, plants will be growing strongly in the higher temperatures and you will also be able to watch the bees, birds and butterflies in your organic pot.  Why not take part in The Big Butterfly Count? Sit in your garden or the park for 15 minutes and see how many butterflies you see! Register your results here; https://www.bigbutterflycount.org/

Buying off-plan property: what are the benefits?

Buying off-plan property: what are the benefits?

Buying your new home before it has been built, often known as off-plan has become increasingly popular. Not only for individual home owners, but for corporate investors to achieve greater returns, but some are discouraged by the idea of buying a product they haven’t seen.

As the government drives to get more new builds onto the market, more people from major investors to first time buyers are weighing up the pros and cons of buying property off plan.

Off plan purchasers are becoming progressively commonplace, although it isn’t as straightforward as traditional house-buying, with advances in technology, developers such as Burrington Estates New Homes offer computer generated images (CGIs) so the purchaser can visualise the finished product, plus virtual tours bringing the homes to life using 3D imagery. The financial advantages of investment can outweigh any uncertainty, buying off plan enables purchasers to secure high quality properties before they are built at the most competitive prices as opposed to buying second hand, meaning the best potential profits.  Buying this pro-actively during process also provides an option of personalisation, with more choice available such as kitchen ranges, flooring, bathroom and technology choices.
