The great advances of the internet enable Flick & Son to offer much better levels of communication than any of our predecessors. We are introducing new innovations to make that even more interactive.
Having been in the industry some 22 years or so I have seen a huge change in the market and the way in which agents go about their business. I can honestly say I have seen good and bad like any industry.
Whether you have bought, sold or rented a property with Flick & Son or have shown an interest in any of the homes we have marketed in 2017, we hope you have a relaxing Christmas break. Please see our e-card and details of our Christmas and New Year opening hours.

Christmas greetings to you from everyone at Flick & Son Estate Agents. Please see our Christmas newsletter for details of our opening hours.
Chancellor Philip Hammond’s Autumn Statement has received a mixed reaction from estate agents and their clients.
Flick & Son carries out regular surveys to get feedback on our services. This helps us shape what we offer our clients in the future. One lucky participant will win a half case of Adnams champagne. Please take part by clicking the link below.
As part of the Government’s Autumn Statement, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Phillip Hammond, confirmed plans to ban letting agents’ charging fees to tenants in England. Flick and Son intends to play a large part in the consultation process, along with our professional and trade bodies.
There has been speculation in the news recently that more homes in England might now be rented than are owner-occupied. If so, might we be witnessing a structural change in the housing market brought about by the low interest economy which has persisted since the 2008 financial crisis and further compounded by the Brexit vote?
Have you been tempted to try and find out the value of your home by using one of the valuation tools now appearing online on numerous property websites?

Brexit is certainly shining a spotlight on market sentiment, but has it actually impacted on the residential property market?
Last month’s email was sent on the day of the EU referendum so a lot has changed politically since then, with the vote to leave and a change in Prime Minister.
It was great to see so many existing and former clients, as well as professionals we work with, at our recent drinks party to celebrate the 21st anniversary of Flick & Son directors Peter Watson and Chris Burrell-Saward acquiring the business.
Regular subscribers may have noticed that we asked for participation in our occasional survey in last month’s newsletter.
The East of England is continuing to see higher house price rises than the rest of England and Wales, according to latest figures from Rightmove.
The property market has been more active than usual at this time of year, partly due to the Budget announcement of a rise in Stamp Duty on second homes.
Welcome to the latest newsletter from Flick & Son where we are seeing an early 2016 surge in interest to the property market.
A theme is already beginning to emerge in the 2016 property market with reports that prices are edging up purely because of the lack of properties coming to the market for purchase.
As we near the end of 2015, there is much talk about how the residential property market performed this year and predictions of what might happen next year.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, has made some significant announcements affecting the housing market in his Spending Review announced in the Commons.

Housing stock remains the focus of attention with further evidence that rising prices are due in large part to the falling number of properties entering the market across the country. A new report for Home.co.uk claims prices in the East of England have risen as sharply as London in the past six months.
As we enter the last quarter of 2015, we’ve been reflecting on more data indicating that the East of England is now showing greater price growth than anywhere else. At Flick & Son we’ve been looking at prices in our own area. Our monthly newsletter has more.
This month we are focusing on people over the age of 55 and the results of a survey which suggests that many of those who are moving towards pensionable age are considering one more move into the property market.
The property market is continuing to power ahead with latest figures from the Office for National Statistics claiming prices in the East of England are rising faster than any other part of the UK.
