The Heatons Christmas Festival

This coming weekend see’s one of the highlights of the Heatons calendar. On Saturday 25th November from 3pm to 7.30pm, Shaw Road will be awash with festive entertainment. There will be music, delicious food and drink and lots of gorgeous market stalls full of ideal gifts. A little elf friend tells me Father Christmas will be arriving on a special sleigh around 3pm. Around this time of year he’s very busy, so apparently he’s staying until 7.30pm, so this giving plenty of time for him to meet all the girls and boys.

This year 4HTA (Four Heatons Traders Association) has teamed up with the Rotary Lamplighters, Heaton Moor Markets and Fountain May. These hardworking organisations are guaranteed to provide plenty of festive entertainment throughout the afternoon.

Please leave the car at home – there really is no space for car parking anywhere near the event.

See you there!

If you venture online, pick up a paper, or watch the news, any mention of the property market in the UK comes with a measure of doom and gloom these days. However, interest rates are still very low and are not likely to rocket up, so it’s not a remotely dangerous time to buy or sell a home. Here are our three reasons homeowners should be optimistic about the prospects for the property market in SK4.

method of commute

Commuting patterns are a significant barometer of the profile of people in a property market. For example in areas where most people travel to work by car, there tend to be more even property price distributions across the local market. On the other hand when people mostly travel by train or underground, there are big price hot spots around the stations.

index of house prices by property type

Over the last twelve months we’ve seen pretty strong performance in the local market. We wanted to see how different property types have performed, so we indexed the values at the start of the period. Property data updates quite slowly, so we’ve estimated the last 3 months.

monthly sales rates by house type
