And so we come to the final Househunter of the year. I have twice moved in December and I read a quote from an estate agent recently saying that December can be a good time to sell as you tend to receive (and see) only serious buyers as the timewasters are busying doing their Christmas…

And just like that it was the first day of the last month. So are you still up for a little fantasy house-hunting? The market dies down a little at this time of year although I have twice moved house on 10 December so there are people who are still looking either through desperation or…

Starting off our house tour this week with a trip to Hampstead, always pretty in an idealised Richard Curtis London sort of way. For many years it was known as the home to academics, writers and media types it has, of course the massive Heath with swimming ponds and city views. And now that you…

Over to west London first to have a look around television centre. Remember when the BBC moved up to Manchester and that fabulous round building in White City was abandoned. Well it’s in the process of being turned into 950 homes and the first residents are due to move in next month. Built in the…
