Social media has influenced almost every business sector and has changed the way in which organisations communicate with their customers and clients. By far the biggest social network is Facebook which will be celebrating its 10th Birthday next week with over a billion users. However,  today it faces strong competition from the ever growing number of rival social networks. Estate agents have always kept up to date with new technology from putting listings online to creating apps for smartphones and tablets. At abbotFox social media has always been an important part of the way we communicate with our clients and engage with the local Norfolk community.

It has been a very busy start to the New Year here in the abbotFox office. We have seen a huge volume of phone calls coming into the office and we have taken on several new members of staff to meet the demand for housing. The combination of the Help To Buy scheme and growing confidence in the housing market meant that house prices increased by 8.4% in 2013. Prices are also expected to rise a further 8% this year and continue to rise over the next five years. This confidence has meant that a lot of people are currently looking to move up the housing ladder or purchase their first property. We are constantly taking on beautiful properties across Norfolk as more people enter into the housing market. As an independent estate agent our focus is solely on Norfolk.

During December 2013 we ran a Christmas calendar competition to get everyone in the mood for the holidays and also to give out some great prizes every day in December up until Christmas Day. We simply asked people to name one of Santa’s reindeers and to enter via the abbotFox website. The response we had was outstanding and we had over one thousand entries to the competition. Twenty five winners were then chosen and each day a door was opened from our specially designed advent calendar which revealed the winner of the day.
