It’s often said that your kitchen is the heart of your home. For many people, it’s more than just a place to prepare meals. It’s a central meeting point, a hub of family activity.
Your kitchen can also help to define the look and feel of your home, which makes it a very personal space. That is why a lot of people will put so much time, effort and energy into getting their kitchen just right.
As Bob Dylan sang, “The times they are a-changin’”. The ways we think about apartments and townhouses now, are different to the ways they were thought about in the past. The way we think about them in the future will be different too.
To get an insight into what the future holds for people purchasing property off plan, we spoke to David Shearer, the Director of Project Planning at Independent Projects.
Have you ever wondered why 2 properties, both in the same general location, with the same number of bedrooms, bathrooms and car spaces, can be put on the market at the same time and end up achieving different prices?
There are a whole range of different factors that can influence the price a property sells for. Marketing campaigns, the method of sale and the negotiation skills of the selling agent can all have a significant impact. The particular characteristics of a property can also play a big part in its value. That’s what we’d like to focus on today.
Most people who own valuable assets, whether it be a car, a rare comic book collection, or their own home, understand the value and importance of insurance. It’s a safety net, there to protect you if the unexpected happens.
If you own an investment property, the right insurance is especially important. Unfortunately, a lot of landlords don’t realise that your typical home and contents insurance policies don’t provide the cover you need.
