Classic Style in Stoke

Welcome to Abode Preview April 2014


ith the changes to the OCR and the LVR both having their effect on borrowing ability of buyers, there seems to be a slight sense of urgency at present with buyers wanting to get in and secure their next home while they can still do so. In this issue I have a number of beautiful new listings. Some in Lifestyle and some in Residential. Showcasing even more stunning properties that are new to the market. Have a look, and if anything catches your eye, please click on the link and I’ll email you a copy of our comprehensive Property Information Memorandum (PIM). The flurry of activity has seen me almost run out of homes to sell. So if you are thinking of selling, or know someone who is thinking of selling soon, please get in touch with me. Whist this issue contains listing from our entire office, my listings get the special full page spread treatment. It’s just a little something more, I do for my clients properties.
