What does the property market have in store for us in 2024, read on for some thoughts . . .
I was recently invited to talk at an event held by the Calder Valley Land Trust, a Public Meeting to discuss the impact of Air B & B on local housing. Unfortnately I could not attend the event in person, but I did put some thoughts down in writing to be voiced at the event. Some commentators mistakenly believed local estate agents wouldn't want to get involved in such a discussion, for fear of upsetting potential clients. I am more than happy to share my opinions and believe this is a very important issue that should be discussed openly. For those that are not aware of the Calder Valley Land Trust, they are a member-led community benefit society, with charitable status, which has been established to help address and meet housing needs in our part of Calderdale. Do check their website, get involved if you can and watch out for future events.
There has been a lot in the news recently about a certain flat and a certain refurbishment costing over £100,000.
Are interior designers really worth that sort of money and can you ever get your money back ? Read on for my thoughts and my tips on local designers, retailers and crafts people . . . because believe me, The Johnsons could have saved a fortune had their flat been in the Calder Valley!
Stay safe over the holidays and let’s all hope 2022 is finally the year we see Covid wane.
