SECONDS TO SELL

  • A property was sold somewhere across England and Wales every 9 seconds of working hours between January and July of this year.
  • With 10 regions in the country, assuming an even distribution, this would equate to a property sale in every region within a minute and a half period. However, with regional differences including the number of available properties and volume of housing stock, there are variations.
  • In the South East and North West, a property was sold during every working minute of the day.
  • In the North East where fewer properties are sold than in other, more densely populated regions, there was still a sale every 3 minutes.

Kick the Plastic

A current project strongly highlighted by the Heatons Traders Association is to generate a greater awareness of the harm plastic is doing to our world. Headed up by local resident Jodi Flannery of Eco-Me-Consultancy, ‘Kick The Plastic’ is wanting to help reduce the use of plastic within The Heatons. Jodi is hoping to investigate recycling options throughout the area and link up with local community groups and businesses to see how we all can use more sustainable products and non-plastic alternative options. If this is close to your heart, by all means pick up a Julian Wadden bag for life from our local Heaton Moor office.

For further information please visit the #KickThePlastic on Jodies dedicated Instagram page or simply send an e-mail. jodi@eco-me.uk

Commuting distances

Measuring commuting distance might seem a little obscure but it actually offers a particularly good insight into the character of any local housing market. For example, commuter towns tend to really come alive at the weekends but are quieter in the week. Areas where most people work locally will have a stronger community feel day-to-day.
