For Sale By Owner Meets Online Dating

Sellmestraight.com has just launched a revolutionary concept in for sale by owner home sales modeled off of popular online dating sites. But rather than matching people with their dream date, sellmestraight.com aims to match buyers with their dream home. Using sophisticated profile based matching, sellmestraight.com is as much an “emotion engine” as a search engine, including criteria such as buyer tastes and preferences into the home search process.

The primary deficiency with most online real estate sites, is that they focus too much on brick and mortar and pay little attention to the emotional aspects of buying a home, which are sometimes the greatest motivating factors when making a major purchase. Eric Little, the site’s founder said “the motivation behind creating sellmestraight.com came from first had experiences both as both a buyer and seller. As a buyer, I was frustrated that the intangible elements of my home search were largely overlooked. A house that looked great on paper often fell far short when viewing in person, especially when it came to personal preferences such as the type of neighborhood”.

In regard to selling a property, Little said “as a home seller attempting to sell by owner, I was discouraged that there was no good way to reach out proactively to interested buyers. I am proud to say the selling tools provided by sellmestraight.com offer home sellers the ability to proactively reach out to interested buyers, representing an unprecedented advantage for motivated home sellers”. – ecoogle

Combining an intuitive and interactive interface between buyer and seller, along with unparalleled advantage of the exclusive seller tools, sellmestraight.com may prove to be the future of for sale by owner home sales. Experience the revolution for yourself at www.sellmestraight.com.

Business travellers are switching to the value and comfort of serviced apartments to seal the deal. Edinburgh-based Ocean Serviced Apartments has responded to the growing number of business clients, looking for economy and luxury combined, by providing dedicated corporate-level accommodation.

Ocean Serviced Apartments

When the UK’s newest operator in the sector, Ocean Serviced Apartments, offered high-spec accommodation for corporate clients, they anticipated that many guests would also want to use their waterfront address to entertain too. “And why not?” asks Matthew Hansen one of Ocean’s Corporate Account managers. “If you’re working in Edinburgh for a limited time, be that a few days or a few months, there’s no needing go to the additional expense of a meeting place, when you can easily use one of our corporate-level apartments as a place to live, and as somewhere to hold an informal meeting”.

Certainly, Ocean Serviced Apartments offer an inspiring location. With views of the Edinburgh skyline and the waters of the Firth of Forth there are few locations that come close to this impressive new-build. “We’re on the edge of the city centre, rather than being out of town”, adds Matthew Hansen. “So we avoid all the usual problems, like parking and congestion, while still being close to all the city amenities”.

Ocean’s two-bedroomed Corporate Apartments all have complimentary wifi, and TV and radio so you can Wake Up To Money and doze off to the Financial World Tonight. They’re all furnished to a premium standard. With nightly rental available from £70, corporate guests have excellent flexibility and a great view of Edinburgh to impress clients.

Astute Investors Can Enlist Help Of Quality Tradespeople To Boost Returns

It has long been the case that investors have seen renovating and modernising a run-down property as a good opportunity to make money.

But in times like the present, when anyone who is still in the market for property can drive a hard bargain, such investments offer an even more appealing deal.

This is because, with good properties scarce, investors’ attention will increasingly focus on what is available lower down the market, where the potential long-term gains are greater.

Les Yates, of Bolton-based trade comparison site, LocalQuoter, believes that, with lots of tradespeople working at less than capacity due to the recession, there is also plenty of help and advice available for would-be investors.

“Competition is fierce among quality tradespeople, whose workload has slowed with the onset of the recession,” Les points out.

“So they have more time to advise on which improvements are needed to a run-down property, and which will bring potentially the highest return.”

Measures such as a new fitted kitchen, double glazing and a new bathroom always have the greatest appeal for buyers, and are one way to make money in a flat housing market, it has been claimed.

But with renewed emphasis on energy efficiency, any improvements which enhance a house’s energy-saving performance are also likely to bring good returns for investors.

Local Quoter can provide you with all the information you need to embark on any home improvment or enovation project such as Double Glazing QuotesCheap Double Glazing and Conservatory quotes.

SilverDoor Has Announced Record Figures For August After An Amazing Month For Sales Despite The Country Being In Recession

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development says the pace of the global downturn is now moderating after a sharp drop in the six months to March and that the recovery is likely to be weak and fragile for some time. However, despite hotels being hit hard during this time, the serviced apartment industry hasn’t seen the same drop in business, as shown by the figures SilverDoor has published.

SilverDoor has seen a 41% growth year on year and it has also increased its portfolio due to client demand, adding new serviced apartments in Cheltenham. Clarence Apartments, located in historic Clarence Square, is a few minutes’ walk f r o m the town centre with its selection of shops, bars and restaurants.

Silverdoor Portfolio Hits Almost 35,000 Apartments Available Worldwide

So far 2009 has proved to be a great year for SilverDoor, with the addition of even more new serviced apartments to its website.

Since Silverdoor changed its name in 2006, the Chiswick based company has seen a big expansion of its database of serviced apartments, allowing it to offer properties in over 170 locations globally. Now with the addition of a wide collection of new properties ranging from serviced apartments in Aberdeen through to serviced apartments in Prague, the number of apartments which are available has risen past the 34,000 mark to almost 35,000.

Possibly the jewel in the crown when it comes to the new additions, is the inclusion of several new Prague serviced apartments, including The Riverview Apartments and the Pachtuv Palace Apartments. Both sets of apartments are located in the centre of Prague, with The Riverview Apartments providing ideal for accommodation for budget-conscious travellers, and as its name suggests great views overlooking the Vitava River. On the other hand, The Pachtuv Palace Apartments offer luxury serviced accommodation in what was formally the Pachtuv Palace, a cultural and architectural landmark that is built around a stunning eighteenth century courtyard.

“The standard of serviced apartments in Prague is very high. Many are particularly spacious, with large windows and are architecturally interesting. We are pleased to increase the number of serviced apartments in Prague we offer as the number of business-related visits continues to rise there”, said Chris Gee, Sales Director at SilverDoor.

With the quality of apartments continuing to rise and SilverDoor now representing almost thirty five thousand apartments worldwide, it looks like SilverDoor is going from strength to strength.

The Heat Wave Hitting The UK This Summer Increased The Demand For Serviced Apartments With Some Form Of Outdoor Space

SilverDoor has revealed that, with temperatures soaring in London and the South East this summer, there has been an increased demand f r o m customers for serviced apartments with some form of outdoor space, be it a balcony, a terrace or a communal garden.

“In Central London where the temperature has been known to soar as high as 33 Celsius, the advantage of outside space is very important,” said Marnie Delaney-Parker, Head of PR and Marketing at SilverDoor. “No one wants to be inside when the British weather is as wonderful as it has been recently and a terrace or a balcony is perfect and makes a serviced apartment seem a much better option than a hotel room with no outside space.”

Key areas for Silverdoor which have seen increased attention are the towns of Newbury and Croydon. Serviced apartments in Newbury have always been a popular choice and the Library Apartments building features a communal roof garden as well as a comfortable lounge area with a dining table and chairs for entertaining or working at, along with high specification AV equipment and television with Sky satellite channels. The Maresfield Apartment, which is a serviced apartment in Croydon, has also received a great deal of increased interest. Located within a residential area only ten minutes walk f r o m East Croydon mainline station, the apartment features one double bedroom, a separate bathroom and an open plan kitchen/lounge area that leads onto a patio and communal lawns.

While the recent heat wave, which has seen night-time temperatures remaining above 18 Celsius in some areas leading the Met Office to raise its heat wave alert, has been bad news for many people across the country as they try to sleep, it has provided a welcome boon for Silverdoor.

Balli Real Estate Sees Return Of Activity In UK Property Market

Balli Real Estate has revealed that fluctuations in the world’s currency exchanges and the fall in the value of sterling caused by the global financial crisis have once again made the UK’s property market a lucrative proposition for investors.

Recent statistics have revealed a rise in market activity and increased levels of mortgage approvals market as buyers return to the market after months of inactivity. This increase in market sentiment is not restricted to the occupational market and has been mirrored with an increase of investment activity.

Balli Real Estate, the private property company, has witnessed an increase in levels of interest in the UK market from domestic and overseas buyers during the first quarter of the year, as a window of opportunity, which opened with the fall of the pound against the world’s major currencies, has been spotted by investors.

Vahid Alaghband, group chairman of Balli Group, observes that the fall in sterling earlier in the year made the UK an attractive proposition for overseas investors and comments: “The relative weakness of the pound against other currencies and the fluctuations of the exchange rates are proving to be very beneficial to buyers from overseas, looking for new opportunities thrown up by the turmoil being experienced by real estate markets around the world. With low prices and yields at up to 10%, property has become a good investment again. In particular the housing market in the UK, of which around 50% is underwritten with government money, and with supply at record low we expect the market steadily through to 2014. The return to the market of competitive mortgages will prove a further boost.”

Balli Real Estate suggests that the pound’s relative weakness on the world’s currency markets will make the UK particularly attractive to buyers from the USA, Hong Kong and the United Arab Emirates.

Alaghband continued: “The argument for an influx of overseas investment is compelling when you combine a 30% fall in the value of the pound with, in some cases, a similar fall in property values. This inward investment is helping to bring an increase in liquidity to the market, which will be an important factor in the recovery of the residential and commercial property markets in the UK.”

Balli Real Estate expects that established and mature markets will prove particularly attractive to foreign investors as the fundamentals of location, accessibility and communications will remain key drivers for occupiers and investors.

David Reid of Balli Real Estate said: “The old adage of ‘location, location, location’ holds good whether the market is good or bad and the established and proven locations of our towns and cities will continue to draw occupiers and purchasers.”

“This has been witnessed at ‘Latitude’ our 172 apartment development in central Birmingham a short distance from New Street train station and the Bullring. Sales in the third and fourth quarters of 2008 were negligible but we have seen a steady increase during the first quarter of 2009.

About Balli Real Estate:
Balli Real Estate is a leading multi-national real estate investment and development company operating in the UK, the Middle East and other lucrative markets. In the United Arab Emirates the company operates under the Peacock Ventures Ltd brand. The company focuses on four key activities: fund management, joint venture developments, direct developments and bulk purchase investment, and is involved in some of the most prestigious real estate projects in the world.

SilverDoor Has Spoken Out On The MPs’ Second Home Scandal With Recommendations For Alternative Accommodation

Rather than take on a second home in the capital, MP’s could take a serviced apartment and SilverDoor has taken on some new serviced apartments in London. West End Quay apartments are located in Paddington and are part of the Paddington Waterside development which is s e t around the Grand Union Canal. The location offers excellent access to the City and the West End f r o m Edgware Road Underground stations while the Heathrow Express operates f r o m nearby Paddington Station every 15 minutes. The modern and stylish studio, one and two bedroom apartments provide spacious living areas and quality furnishings and feature separate dining, living and sleeping areas. There is also a 24 hour concierge service and a courtyard seating area.

Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh have also been in the spotlight recently. Andrew Mitchell, Birmingham MP, claimed for furniture for his second home in Birmingham yet had the furniture delivered to his London home – something that could have been avoided if he had used a serviced apartment in Birmingham. The Arc Apartments are a new addition to SilverDoor’s serviced apartments in Birmingham. Located in the centre of the city, each open-plan one or two bedroom apartments is furnished to a high standard and features the use of a concierge service as well as complimentary broadband and on-site parking. “The Arc Apartments are in a perfect location for someone wanting to stay in Birmingham, whether it be for a short time or an extended stay” said Marnie Delaney-Parker, head of PR and marketing at SilverDoor.

In Manchester, SilverDoor has numerous serviced options and The Edge apartments are located in one of Manchester’s most significant residential developments situated on a key riverside location in the city. The apartments offer a stylish spacious lounge/dining area and a fully equipped kitchen with a range of integrated modern appliances. Guests will benefit f r o m free internet use and a welcome pack on arrival as well as on-site parking. These serviced apartments in Manchester complement the rest of the SilverDoor portfolio.

Clive Betts, Labour MP for Sheffield claimed over £6000 for furnishings of his second home, again a cost that could have been avoided, had he used a serviced apartment.

Recently added to the Edinburgh portfolio is Grove Executive. Opened earlier this year, the development includes a choice of studios, one and two bedroom apartments and two bedroom penthouses. These modern serviced apartments in Edinburgh city centre are located within the West End district and are a short walk f r o m Princes Street, Edinburgh Castle and the mainline train station. John Barrett, Liberal Democrat MP for Edinburgh West claimed £1138 per month mortgage interest on a second home in a building in London where SilverDoor represent serviced apartments.

Crown Apartments in Reading offer one and two bedroom accommodation and are just a few minutes’ walk from the town centre and the rail station. A great selection of shops, restaurants and bars can be found in the town centre along Broad Street and within the Oracle Shopping Centre.

Some of the apartments also have access to a private rooftop terrace with sea views.

“These locations are very popular for SilverDoor and the serviced apartment market and we’re delighted that we now have some more options to offer,” said Chris Gee, sales director at SilverDoor, “The provider we use in these locations also has serviced apartments in Glasgow and Bristol, again very popular locations for us.”

A new addition, opened earlier this year is Meridian Apartments in Cardiff. These serviced apartments provide modern serviced accommodation and are housed within a purpose built development with a choice of studios, one and two bedroom apartments. All of the apartments are tastefully furnished and come complete with state-of-the-art kitchen facilities, comfortable living areas and luxurious bedrooms with king size beds and modern bathrooms. The development also has a reception desk manned throughout office hours.

“We are finding that more and more companies are opting for serviced apartments over hotels so availability can be limited so to get a provider to invest into key locations and with high quality accommodation is just perfect,” said Marnie Delaney-Parker, head of PR and marketing at SilverDoor.

SilverDoor offers serviced apartments in more than 160 locations globally and offers a range of accommodation to suit all budgets.

SilverDoor Increases Its Portfolio With Larger Apartments Due To Client Demand

Generally the trend in serviced apartments has been either one or two bedroom apartments and the larger apartments have been for training groups or perhaps relocation with a family, but SilverDoor has seen a recent growth in the need for larger apartments of three and four bedrooms.

“Companies can reduce accommodation costs by getting colleagues to share a serviced apartment rather than booking three separate hotel rooms,” said Marnie Delaney-Parker, head of PR and marketing at SilverDoor, “It’s not just the accommodation costs that are reduced but also all additional costs such as costly restaurant bills and laundry bills. All serviced apartments feature facilities to allow guests to cook for themselves and to do laundry. We estimate that for a longer stay, guests can save around 30% on additional costs compared to staying in a hotel.”

SilverDoor has seen significant growth in Scotland and offers some larger serviced apartments in Glasgow. Central Apartments are housed in a refurbished Victorian townhouse and offer modern furnished accommodation in a fantastic city centre location. As well as offering three bedroom apartments, the property also has one and two bedroom options. All apartments are stylishly decorated and comfortably furnished while still retaining many original features.

Serviced apartments in Belfast have also seen a growing trend recently in larger apartments. Willowbank apartments in South Belfast offer two and three bedroom accommodation and have full kitchen facilities, a separate lounge area and a garden area, too. The apartments are a ten-minute drive from the airport as well as a short taxi ride from the city centre.

It’s not just in the UK that SilverDoor has spotted a trend, with Amsterdam serviced apartments becoming larger to meet demand of clients wanting to share and save costs. Dutch Masters Apartments located within the city centre form part of an exclusive development within the historical district.

The development is situated on the Keizersgracht canal, and there are plenty of shops, bars, restaurants and transport connections nearby. Each apartment is themed on a famous Dutch artist to offer guests a variety of truly unique apartments.

The development offers one, two and three bedroom apartments, all comfortably furnished. Some apartments have a roof terrace, while some have access to the tranquil gardens at the back of the property and others have views of the canal.

Silverdoor Has Announced That It Has Added To Its Extensive Portfolio Of Accommodation By Introducing New Apartments In Cardiff And London

Meridian Apartments are a range of studios, one and two bed serviced apartments in Cardiff. They opened in February 2009 and are located in Cardiff city centre, near to the Millennium Stadium and close to both Cardiff Central and Cardiff Queen Street rail stations. The apartments are housed within a purpose built building and boast luxurious bedrooms, bathrooms, living areas and kitchens.

Since 2005 when Cardiff celebrated its centenary as a city and 50 years as capital of Wales, “Cardiff serviced apartments are becoming more and more popular due to the regeneration of the bay area and key parts of the city centre,” said Chris Gee, Sales Director at SilverDoor.

Another property recently added to the SilverDoor portfolio is Templeton Place in London, which is housed within a newly completed residential development in Earls Court. The apartments are conveniently located for Earls Court Exhibition Centre and the underground station, providing easy links for other parts of London. These serviced apartments in London offer a spacious, contemporary living area, with fully equipped kitchen and integrated appliances.

“This part of London is such a popular location. Trying to accommodate people who need to be near this area has been a challenge as we have not had enough serviced apartments here before. There are many apartment buildings in the surrounding areas but there weren’t enough in Earls Court and many have restrictions on lengths of stays, some with minimum stays of ninety nights. One of the benefits of Templeton Place apartments is that they will offer shorter stays,” said Chris Gee. “We’re delighted that we can now offer something in this area and are confident it will become a huge success.”

Also new in London is Gloucester Place Apartments in Marylebone. It is housed within a newly converted Georgian townhouse located less than five minutes walk from Regents Park and Baker Street underground stations. All of the one bedroom apartments have air conditioning, a fully equipped kitchen with a range of integrated appliances and a comfortable lounge and dining area.

“Marylebone is a really popular area for serviced apartments in London and we get many requests, especially from overseas visitors who intend to stay for a while,” said Stuart Winstone, Head of Business Partnerships at SilverDoor. “The whole area has the feel of a small village to it and is so close to Regents Park offering the best of both worlds, yet is ten minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street and the West End.”
