A belated Happy New Year from us here at PropertyHants.com, we hope you enjoyed the festive season and are looking forward to 2018.
According to the pundits the property market is expected to be active for 2018, with potential small growth in prices outside of London. Hampshire should remain a very popular area or buyers, because of its excellent transport links and beautiful countryside, who wouldn’t want to live in Hampshire?
Here at PropertyHants we will keep the auctions page updated and want to improve the Estate Agents page, we will keep the Top Hants Estate Agents List, under review, we stopped updating it last June as, we were having problems with messages/tweets getting through to players and had seen engagement drop dramatically, we think this was because we were falling foul of Twitter automation rules. We also want to add a page on Homebuy, Shared Ownership and other government schemes available to help buyers.
Have a great start to 2018

We have introduced a new hashtag for our Top Hants Estate Agents on Social Media Leaderboard – #HantsEA100 which we will be using for the first time this week. We wanted to be able to identify social media posts about the Leaderboard easily and also monitor some issues with notifications not getting through on twitter to agents, so this seemed the perfect time to introduce a hashtag for the leaderboard.

The Sunday Times ‘Home’ section ran a feature this weekend on ‘Homes languishing on the market’ which included this delightful house for sale in Weston Patrick, Basingstoke Hampshire, see the article below.
Not sure why they couldn’t find the listing on Rightmove, as the property was listed back in September, with The Old Cottage on Rightmove and here is The Old Cottage on OnTheMarket with a virtual tour!
The issue of a lower ceiling in the kitchen has put off some buyers and the owners have been advised by ‘Home’ to get some plans drawn up for lowering the floor, to help any buyers who don’t expect low ceiling beams in a cottage. Hopefully the coverage in the Sunday Times will generate some interest. Contact selling agents Charters here
You can also view the listing from when the property was sold on the 1st August 2013 for £638,500 on Rightmove Here interesting to see the changes that have been made to the property over three and a bit years.
