Top Property Trends For 2013...

At Intercounty we like to keep at the forefront of the property market, so we thought we would share with you some of the property trends for 2013:
• More people will be thinking about moving to the country, but will be looking at properties that offer a commute to London in less than ninety minutes. Essex and Hertfordshire is a perfect place to live for people wanting to commute to London easily each day.
• Renewable energy is becoming more and more important to families as keeping the cost of running a property is key to lowering expenses. Properties offering an eco-lifestyle or with a good energy rating are very important to people considering buying a new home.
At the moment we have this fabulous eco house for sale in Ware, Hertfordshire, this family home offers an outstanding energy efficient eco-friendly advanced timber frame. It also offers superb road and rail links to London. Some of the main features of its eco credentials are; minimal running costs, 2.8 kw grid connected by PV system, rainwater harvesting supplying all water (excluding drinking water), hot water supplied by solar panel plus immersion heater. It has a heat recovering ventilation system and a room sealed log burning stove which offers carbon emission savings and a high level of insulation.
• There are more buyers who are interested in generating an extra income from their homes, sparking an interest in buying potential or existing B and B or Guesthouse properties. We have some great properties for sale around the Stansted area, offering great potential for someone wanting to set up a guest house.  
• Being within walking distance of a good school is also top of the list for buyers. Intercounty Saffron Walden have this four bedroom, beautifully presented three storey house for sale, in the heart of this wonderful market town and within easy walking distance from some of the best schools in the Country.
