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.
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.

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.
The property market fluctuates on a seasonal basis, and this is particularly the case for sales rates. This chart shows how the market has changed over the course of the last few months. The most recent periods are estimates based on the previous year’s pattern.
Art lovers throughout The Heatons have a feast of auctions over the next few months. Establish in 1826, Capes Dunn has recently moved from their Manchester City centre to Station Road in Heaton Mersey.
Selling a large number of Fine Art & Antiques, the auction company also host fortnightly Interiors, Vintage & Modern Auctions.
Their next auction is the ‘Antiquarian and Collectable Books and Affordable Art’ on the 26th June followed by a Free Open Valuation day on the 28th June.
2018 marks the 6th annual event of this brilliant two-day, free to visit, community-led trail where local artists and artisans open their homes and studios to showcase their work to the public.
It’s an fantastic opportunity to see what’s happening in the ever growing local arts scene and support local makers. This year, the Heatons Art Trail plan to have more studios, more collective exhibition spaces and more artist-led workshops.
Suitable for all ages and all the family.
This is one of my favourite events of the year.
This year’s trail will be held on the weekend of 7th & 8th July 2018 – see you there.
