What do downsizers, a growing force in the housing market, want? Check out this two-minute read to find out.

Downsizers are emerging as increasingly influential players in the property market, with a growing number of over-55s selling up and buying less expensive properties.

Last year, 181,000 people downsized* – the highest number in five years (source: Hamptons, 2021).

Why downsizers are important

Downsizers help keep the property market ticking over as they tend to free up bigger family homes. Given the shortage of good quality housing stock, this is good news for first-time buyers and families looking for more room.

Why do people downsize?

Free up equity – Often, people downsize to fund their retirement or help their children get on the property ladder. The Hamptons study found that, on average, downsizers were £256,800 better off after making their move – so there’s probably also spare change for a cruise or swanky holiday.

Reduce maintenance – As we get older, looking after a large property can be a real burden. Downsizing means fewer cleaning, gardening and general maintenance chores.

Lower heating bills – With energy prices skyrocketing, paying to heat a large and predominantly empty home makes no sense.

Mortgage-free – Many downsizers want to work less or retire and hence want to be done with mortgage repayments.

Family ties – Many downsizers want to live near to children and grandchildren.

What downsizers want

There are always exceptions to the rule, but downsizers tend to want:

Low-maintenance garden – Rickety fences, leaky sheds and large swathes of lawn that need mowing are likely to be turn-offs.

Little or no DIY – Downsizers are often reluctant to carry out major refurbishments, so doer-uppers are a no-no.

Good storage – If you’ve lived in a spacious home for years, you’re bound to have amassed many possessions. Even after a ruthless declutter, you’re still likely to have beloved objects with which you can’t bear to part.

Proximity to amenities – They may want a quieter pace of life, but many downsizers still desire access to shops, leisure facilities and public transport.

*Downsizer definition: someone who purchases a property that is at least 20% cheaper than their previous property and has at least two fewer bedrooms.

Discover how to make your kitchen look fresh and modern without spending a fortune in this two-minute read.

Smartening up your kitchen is an excellent way to wow buyers and add value. If you can’t afford a full-scale high-end refurbishment, try these cost-saving DIY tips.

Before you start

When we’re emotionally attached to a property, we often gloss over its flaws. But it’s important to think about the impression your home will make on buyers. Remove all clutter and analyse what your kitchen really looks like. Is it warm and welcoming, or washed out and a bit grubby?

Identify the features that are in good shape and those that are knackered and need improving.

When planning the work that you’re going to do, remember that your goal is to make your property more saleable. It’s great to take inspiration from magazines and social media but avoid bold statements and opt for a neutral look.

Cabinets – If your cabinets look tired, you could:

  • Keep the framework (sometimes called a carcass) and replace the cupboard doors with new, or nearly new, ones. 
  • Keep your existing doors but freshen them up with a coat of paint. Ensure you buy the correct type of paint for the job (this will depend on the finish of your doors) and sand and prime them first, if necessary. 
  • Replace the kickplate that runs along the base of the cabinets as this shows up wear and tear.
  • Update the handles to give the cabinets a more modern look.

Tiles – Replacing shabby tiles doesn’t have to cost the earth. (Inexpensive white tiles arranged in a brick-effect pattern always look smart.) Your other option is to keep the tiles but strip out the grout (if it looks grotty) and re-grout.

Splashback – There are many great glass and stainless steel options on the market. Adding a new splashback is a quick and easy way to lift a room.

Flooring – If your existing flooring looks tired but is flat (no slopes or slants), you could simply lay new flooring on top. 

Lighting – Good lighting can make a room feel more spacious and create ambience. Consider adding pendant lights over the eating area to create a focal point.

Countertops – If your countertop looks dated, buy a good quality second-hand replacement (there are lots online) and cut it to size.

Nine times out of ten, where is the first place a potential buyer will see your home? You guessed it – in a photograph! Whether it be online through a laptop screen or mobile phone, or on the street in an estate agent’s shop window, that small viewing frame should be treated as the place to showcase all the best angles of your home and have people longing for the lifestyle they see at the end of the lens.

This, of course, applies to any house marketing photography. But with a high-value home, that features plenty of space and unique aspects, going above and beyond standard imagery will really set your house apart. And that’s where our expertise is on hand to help!

Differentiating your house from the rest of the market with creative and considered expert photography is our speciality. So, we’ve collated our best ideas for how to showcase your home in – quite literally – the best light!

Prep the space 

Any professional photographer knows that before the shutter clicks, there’s an element of house preparation required – and this involves a little help from the homeowner. So, to provide the photographer with a clean slate on which to work their magic, make sure the house is spick and span, both inside and out. In your outdoor area, clear any vehicles and bins out of shot for the day, use a bit of elbow grease on the windows to get them sparkling, and make sure the lawn is mowed and any weeds are removed.

Next, turn your attention to the inside of your house. After tidying the rooms, consider giving lacklustre walls and any worn-out furniture a fresh lick of paint. Studies show that decorating can make all the difference in the eyes of a potential buyer and will add up to 5% more to your home’s value. This is definitely something that a top-quality camera will highlight on screen too, so you can be sure it’s well worth going that extra mile.

Set the scene

Subtle styling and expert photography go hand in hand, especially when it comes to lifestyle imagery. Considered style choices will help to establish that emotional connection between the house and a potential buyer, enabling a thoughtfully framed lifestyle shot to provide a welcoming feel and give people a chance to truly envisage themselves in the space.

So, once the house is prepped, you and the photographer can work together to add a few stylish touches to really give your home a lived-in – but carefully curated – look. Bring colour to the kitchen with fruit-filled bowls, set the dining table with your best crockery, hang fresh neatly folded towels in the bathroom, place fresh blooms in coordinating vases onto sideboards, and cosy up the bedroom with luxurious woven throws and scatter cushions. These style-savvy touches will highlight the real potential of your home in imagery and give it a well-loved feel. For outdoor specific styling advice, visit our garden blog.

Get the light right

Cold or clinical lighting is something to avoid when it comes to home photography, especially with a sizeable one that might look unwelcoming as a result. So, making sure the mood of the rooms are set to warm and inviting is key. This atmosphere can be achieved with photos taken on a dry day at around dusk to cast a naturally soft and calming glow.

However, we know relying on the weather – especially British weather – isn’t an ideal option! So, you’ll be pleased to know that this isn’t the only way to capture the warm and welcoming look. Today’s post-production technology is your friend in this scenario. With a combination of accent and ambient lighting switched on around your home as well as an arsenal of subtle sepia-tinted filters, professional photographers can easily craft that sought-after early evening glow.

Oaklands – Comberbach

Capture the scale

Framing a shot to reveal the true size of your home is crucial when it comes to giving an accurate depiction of the space – and there are a few clever hacks to capture it. A whizz with full-frame cameras and an ability to experiment with varying perspectives, an expert photographer will have all the necessary equipment to hand to ensure large rooms and outdoor spaces give viewers a real representation of your home’s footprint.

Showing where your house is situated in its surroundings is also a great way to indicate the true length and breadth of your home. So, if you live on a hilltop with plenty of countryside around, or you want to show the size of your garden by highlighting boundary hedges and fences, then elevated photography, perhaps with the help of a drone or aerial mast, is another useful route to take.

Framing shots from a higher perspective will give scale and dimension to your house and highlight your proximity to stunning views or local Amenities that may otherwise not be realised. In the eyes of a potential buyer, elevated photography can take a modest cottage to a rural marvel, or a humble townhouse to the heart of a historic centre.

Show the local area

Location, location, location – we can’t emphasise this enough! When investing in a new home, most people aren’t only interested in the house itself, but also in the place that surrounds it – and rightly so.

Showcasing snapshots of the local area, whether it be well-known landmarks, a quaint nearby shop, pet-friendly parks, walking trails, or picturesque views, now is the time to bring all of these aspects together and paint a picture of what life could be like living in your home.

When searching for a new home, do you scroll past properties that look a little worse for wear? You know the ones, where the carpet hasn’t been changed since the 70s and the floral wallpaper is curling off the walls?

Lots of buyers look for newly renovated or new-build homes due to fear of the doer-upper. If that sounds like you, we’re here to tell you that you’re potentially missing out.

Older, unloved properties may look scary, but they’re often hiding bags of potential.

Here’s what to consider when buying a doer-upper.

1. Costs and budgets

Dilapidated or older properties tend to come onto the market at a lower price than their newly renovated competition. With new homes, you’re paying for the time and money someone else has put into it. While with doer-uppers, you’ve got something relatively untouched and ready for updating.

Of course, you must factor in build costs, decoration, plumbing, electrics, etc. But in many cases, these can work out at less than a new-build, especially if you do some of the work yourself.

Top Tip: If you’ve fallen in love with an older property, make sure you view it a few times, and take an experienced builder along to see it so they can advise on costs and potential issues.

2. Research

Buying an unloved property without doing your research is a fool’s game. Get yourself online and look at similar homes in the area; ask the agent as many questions as you can to get to grips with the property. Is there potential to extend? Does the property have permitted development rights? What do the other properties on the street look like? There are no silly questions when you’re thinking about a renovation project.

3. Add value

When buying a doer-upper, you can feel smug in the knowledge that any updates you do will add value. For example, many older flats or houses don’t have a central heating system, which would put a lot of buyers off. By installing one, changing the old windows, and investing in insulation, you’re not only energy-proofing, but you’re also saving money in the long run. Also, if you decide to sell, you’ll be able to command a higher purchase price.

4. Make your mark

It’s great moving into a shiny new home with a flawless kitchen and high-spec bathroom, but imagine creating your own space. There’s nothing like seeing your design ideas come to life and a renovation project allows you to do just that.

If you’re looking for a renovation project, get in touch with us at Storeys. We’ll help you find your dream home.

Find out how you can impress buyers by making each room in your home look as spacious as possible. A two-minute read.

Whether you’re marketing a one-bedroom flat or a seven-bedroom mansion, the same rule usually applies – big is beautiful.

We’re talking about big rooms, of course! It’s well known that a home that feels spacious will always fetch a higher price than a similar property that comes across as cramped and crowded.

The good news is you don’t need to go crazy with a sledgehammer knocking down walls to make a home feel roomier – a few clever adjustments will do the trick.

Here are five ways to make your home look bigger.

1.Ditch the clutter 

Carry out an audit in each room of your home and identify any items you can live without for a few months during the marketing process. Put the ones you want to keep in storage and ditch the rest (some have probably been gathering dust for years). Don’t be precious; no one’s passing judgement on your hobbies or interests. Just give buyers what they want: a blank canvas that they can put their own mark on.

2.Get the furniture right

Perhaps you have a huge sofa that’s fab for family film nights but swamps your living room, or a 14-seat dining table that you only use at Christmas? Put super-sized items of furniture in storage and hire or borrow pieces that are in proportion with the room.

3.Use mirrors

Mirrors reflect light and make a space look bigger. Positioning a large mirror at the rear of a room is a great way to make it look roomier.

4.Go neutral

Dark walls and bold patterns make a room look smaller (and don’t even get us started on dark-coloured ceilings). Interior designers suggest painting the walls and ceiling the same light neutral tone to make a room feel more spacious.

5.Let there be light (artificial and natural)

Always open your curtains or shutters before a viewing to allow natural light in. Also, dot lamps around the room to generate more light. A variety of lighting creates depth (and hence a sense of space) in a room.

Find out why it’s time to ditch your car and walk to school with your children instead. A two-minute read.

Want to reduce carbon emissions, traffic congestion, and the risk of childhood obesity? Then step right up and out for Walk to School Week (16 to 20 May).

Next week’s event, organised by the charity Living Streets, encourages children and their carers to leave the car at home and do the school run on foot instead.

So, why all this emphasis on swapping four wheels for two feet? Here are just a few benefits associated with walking to school.

  • It’s a great way to boost children’s activity levels (bear in mind that only 45% of children and young people exercise for the recommended one hour a day*).
  • Starting the day with a dose of fresh air gets the endorphins (feel-good emotions) going and increases alertness.
  • It’s an excellent opportunity to have a little one-on-one time with your child and natter about whatever is on their mind.
  • According to Unicef, in 71% of UK towns and cities, children breathe in unsafe levels of air pollution (which is linked to an increased risk of asthma and respiratory problems). Reducing cars on local streets will mean cleaner air. 
  • The roads around schools are often chock-a-block at peak times, with some parents also failing to adhere to road rules and parking irresponsibly. Fewer cars mean less stress and less dodgy driver aggression.
  • A Living Streets study found that 87% of parents with primary school-aged children have had to step into the carriageway because of vehicles parked on the pavement while on the school run. This poses serious safety and accessibility issues.

Take part 

Why not try walking your child to school every day next week and see if you notice the benefits?

If it’s not feasible to walk the whole way due to distance, consider parking about ten minutes away from school and completing the rest of your journey on foot.

And don’t forget to take note of the street conditions on your route to school and contact your local council if improvements are needed to remedy unsafe crossings or damaged pavements.

From all of us here at Storeys, thanks for reading and happy walking.

What does your garden mean to you? For us, it can be summarised in three simple words: entertainment, enjoyment and peace. With it being such a pleasurable, versatile space, it’s no wonder several studies show that it’s within the top three priorities for a potential buyer. Surrounding your house at both front and back, it’s a large area that requires just as much pre-viewing preparation as any room inside – and that’s where we’re here to help!

Tidying the garden is one thing, but styling it is another – it’s the finishing touches you add to the space with considered layouts and accessories that will take it to the next level. So, after you’ve trimmed the hedges and pressure-washed the patio, the fun can truly begin! By bringing a flourish of style to the garden, you’ll be surpassing the viewer’s expectations, showing them the true potential of the space.

Read on for 6 tested tips that will finesse your garden with a dose of charming style.

1. Frame the front door

The first area viewers will see when they arrive is the front door, so it’s worth thinking about the inviting impression you want to create. After refreshing old letterboxes, handles and knockers, consider defining a pathway to the door with flanks of flower beds or potted plants interspersed with post lights.

When it comes to the doorway or porch, draw the eye by framing it with hanging baskets and climbing plants. Alternatively, use candle-filled lanterns of varying sizes either side of the door – mix these in groups of three for visual appeal.

2. Get in the zone

Before you start accessorising the back garden, we suggest dividing it into different areas that are suited for particular purposes. Not only will this make your space feel bigger, but it will also be more organised, allowing you to show the garden in its best light.

A few cleverly positioned dining and seating areas will help to subtly delineate your garden and enable potential buyers to envisage themselves in the space. Define the centre of the main entertainment area with a weatherproof rug, and use comfy furniture to outline the borders. For a balance of cosy and sophisticated style, use a glass-topped table and cushioned dining chairs made from natural-looking materials such as all-weather wicker or Lloyd Loom.

If space allows, channel relaxation in another corner of the garden with an outdoor sofa or swing chair and a timber coffee table. To complete the snug look and feel, add a gas or electric heater.

3. Light the way

Come rain or shine, illuminating your outdoor space with thoughtfully chosen lighting that looks just as good in the daytime as it does at night will add warmth and style. Consider the theme of your interior, and expand this into the garden. A set of bronze- and copper-toned fixtures will give an aged, antique look that’s in keeping with period houses and cottages, whereas matt black and silvered patinas will coordinate with the contemporary feel of a modern home.

If you have a decking area, consider installing recessed floor lighting – for house viewings during darker months, this it will add an uplifting glow to the space. Alternatively, intertwine streams of festoon lights around an awning, hang them along the eaves of a shed or car port, or wrap them around a tree or two to enhance the relaxed atmosphere.

4. Play with mirrors

An outdoor mirror or two is ideal for bouncing light around the garden and, if you position them in a clever way, they can also make the space feel bigger. When placing a mirror outside, consider what you want it to reflect. Fixing it against a fence or wall to reflect flowers and foliage is much preferrable to a view of trailing drainpipes!

Think about the shape and size of the mirror, too. Going large will have the most impact, so when it comes to oversized mirrors, add one to your seating area to bounce light and reflect your table styling skills. Whether your garden style errs on the classic or modern side, a Crittall window mirror will suit the space. Give an arch-shaped one pride of place in an elegant countryside garden, or use a straight-framed square version in a more contemporary area.

5. Lift the space with colour

When it comes to nature, feel free to play around with colour to make your garden feel cheerful and inviting. For easy decorating, bring in container plants – they work especially well on a paved area or courtyard space where colour might be lacking. And if the flowers aren’t in bloom yet, then you can still add bright hues in the form of plant pots and baskets grouped together in coordinating colours.

For quaint, older houses, a fast-growing climber such as wisteria or clematis set against a wall or fence will give your space a real ‘wow’ factor. Or for a modern home, use trailing plants housed in hanging baskets to create a living wall of foliage for a more minimal approach. Wooden or galvanised metal step ladders are also a creative way to make a fun floral display.

If you have any bare patches among your flower beds, then now is the time to fill them. Bring in a selection of easy-to-maintain perennials that look good all year round such as hellebore, libertia, liriope muscari and cranesbill.

6. Keep it low-key

Remember, you don’t need to go OTT with styling or make it appear high maintenance. Keep it depersonalised by opting for furnishings that highlight texture over pattern and, unless it’s in the form of flowers or plants, accessorise with calm, neutral colours so you don’t overwhelm the space.

Whichever way you look at it, modern life is stressful. And the 2020s? Well so far, this new decade has caused unparalleled levels of stress.

Whether it’s the pressure of daily life, the juggling of responsibilities, or the state of the world right now, stress can have physical, mental, and emotional repercussions for people of all ages. And it needs to be taken seriously.

April is Stress Awareness Month, an initiative that has been running since 1992, designed to highlight the causes and cures for stress. This year, the Stress Management Society is focusing on community, reducing isolation and loneliness, and increasing social support.

In this quick read, we look at some of the ways you can help to support others feeling stressed or anxious.

Get talking

Sometimes, feeling stressed can be embarrassing. People can feel judged or self-conscious when struggling to cope. Help reduce the stigma around stress by talking about such feelings. Whether at home or in the workplace, those suffering with stress may feel like their issues are valid and gives them space to open up.

Be kind

It sounds simple, and it is. By showing understanding and empathy for someone who is stressed, you can help to ease the burden. Whether it’s making a workmate a cup of coffee or offering to help with a pesky spreadsheet, you can really make a difference to someone’s day.

Share coping strategies

Letting someone feeling stressed know that you’ve felt the same way may help to reduce feelings of loneliness. Maybe your way of coping is by doing some simple breathing exercises or writing ‘to-do’ lists, everyone has their own ways of managing times of stress and sharing them could really help others.

Look after yourself

If you’re feeling anxious or stressed, take the time to acknowledge and understand your feelings. Don’t berate yourself or feel like you should be able to cope. Stress affects everyone in different ways and if you need to take some time to de-stress, that’s perfectly ok.

Talk to your kids

Whether you’ve got a stressed-out teenager about to sit exams, or your little one is worried about their friendships, it’s important to open the dialogue about these feelings and try to suggest ways they can feel better.

Children are like sponges, and things like the pandemic, or the current global situation can really impact them. Looking after your little one’s mental health is just as important as putting a plaster on a cut finger or kissing a bruised knee.

If you’re taking out a new mortgage or about to refinance your property, have you considered a green mortgage? No? Never heard of it? Well, that’s what we’re here for.

A green mortgage is not actually new. In fact, the concept was first launched about 30 years ago but wasn’t used much. However, in the last few years, green mortgages have been gaining momentum, and are being offered by more and more high-street lenders.

What is it?

It’s basically a mortgage that rewards energy efficiency. Borrowers buying energy-savvy new-build properties or undertaking green improvements are offered better rates by their lenders.

A green mortgage works in the same way as a standard mortgage, but it’s cheaper. Borrowers are incentivised for being more energy efficient and are encouraged to reduce their overall energy usage.

Am I eligible?

Most lenders require a property to have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of A or B to be eligible for a green mortgage. And that’s not easy to achieve.

The current EPC rating scale goes from A (the most energy efficient) to G (the least). In 2019, it was estimated the average UK property EPC was just a D.

If you’re buying a new-build property, it might be worth exploring a green mortgage with your lender. Newer homes are typically more energy efficient than older properties which often need a lot of work to meet the higher rating requirements.

Why are green mortgages becoming more popular?

It’s all to do with the government’s aim to reach net zero emissions by 2050.

Currently, it’s estimated that 15% of the UK’s climate emissions are produced by residential properties. So, the government has said lenders must have an average EPC rating of C across their mortgage portfolios by 2030.

In simple terms, the government hopes that the target they’re imposing on lenders will trickle down to consumers who will make green improvements in return for lower mortgage rates.

How can I improve my EPC?

Unfortunately, if you own an older property, achieving a higher EPC rating could cost quite a bit. Some big green improvements include draught-proof doors and windows, roof and loft insulation, cavity wall insulation, insulated solid walls, a new boiler, and a low-carbon heating system.

You can check your property’s EPC rating here.

From left-handed loo roll to crime-fighting dachshunds, read these five April Fools’ Day pranks and choose your favourite. A three-minute read.

No one’s sure exactly how April Fools’ Day started, but pranksters have been at it for centuries.

In one early caper in 1698, an anonymous cheeky wag sent out invitations to watch the ‘Washing of the Lions’ ceremony in the Tower of London moat. When people turned up, no one at the Tower had a clue what they were talking about (but we presume someone shouted gotcha!).

Since then, April Fools’ gags have ranged from child’s play – whoopee cushions, plastic spiders, and ‘kick me’ signs stuck onto people’s backs – to elaborate spoofs. Here are five of the best.

1 – Can you put a price on history? One Kent estate agent tried to, back in 2017, when he revealed that Kent Castle, a medieval masterpiece with 32 bedrooms, a walled garden, and a thousand-year history, was on the market. In an elaborate hoax video, Sean Dickson raved about the castle’s ‘bespoke security measures’ at the ‘unique family residence’ – while leaning on a decommissioned canon. While many locals spotted the gag, many international buyers didn’t and got in touch with Sean to make an offer.

2 – Last year, South Australian police released a video announcing plans to use dachshunds in the fight against crime. A straight-faced copper explained that the vertically challenged pooches would be deployed on top of cupboards and under cars to sniff out drugs and stolen goods. They would also be attached to drones and dropped into people’s yards (while wearing super cute high-vis police vests). And the name of this new squad? Small Area Urban Searching and Guided Evacuation Dogs (aka sausage dogs, geddit?).

3 – In 1957, Panorama presenter Richard Dimbleby reported that the Swiss were enjoying a bumper spaghetti crop. He then showed viewers footage of locals ‘harvesting’ spaghetti from trees. As pasta was still quite an exotic foodstuff in the UK at the time, many people were taken in and contacted the BBC for tips on growing their own pasta.

4 – Loo roll firm Cottonelle unveiled a new product on 1 April 2015 – ReverseRipple toilet paper for left-handers. It was accompanied by the slogan ‘It cleans just like right-handed toilet paper, only now it’s made for me’.

5 – A few years later, Coca-Cola announced that its sugar-free drinks range would include three new flavours to keep the Insta generation happy: avocado, sourdough, and charcoal. Thank goodness that was a prank.

What’s your favourite April Fools’ Day prank?
