Have you ever thought that the unlucky number 13 may apply to the property game? Researched statistics will hasten to agree with this assumption. 

Have you ever wondered why people use for sale boards and are they really worthwhile having? Well read on to find out. 

There is a common misconception that listing a property online through Rightmove and Zoopla will automatically sell. We like to challenge this belief and have the results to prove it. 

How long do you think you would spend looking at a property before deciding to buy it?

I'm exploring the feeling amongst many that technology has replaced the need to speak to an estate agent with all the information we need being at our finger tips instead.  

Finally after years of waiting, there has been a reform over the controversial stamp duty thresholds. But what could this mean for the market and you?

Ten years ago house hunting would've been very different, today because of technology things are different. Here at abbotFox estate agents we consider ourselves early adopters of all new marketing methods, however we know what still works when it comes to traditional marketing.

Technology is changing everything from how we communicate and now how we live. There will come a time soon when we'll all be living in "smart" homes.

As our abbotFox brand grew and developed we were seeing an increasing demand for high end, luxury properties in Norwich and Norfolk from clients who were frustrated with the traditional methods used by traditional agents.

The website has also been optimised for laptops, tablets and smartphones so that you can continue to search for properties even whilst on the move.

Horning is also home to some iconic buildings including the beautiful Horning Church and the Swan Inn which dates back to 1696. Today, the Inn is seen as an important landmark in the village which has appeared in several films and books. The Church of St Benedict goes back even further to 1220 and there is also ...

The city of Norwich is becoming an increasingly popular place to live and this has been reflected in the growing number of house buyers from outside the area looking to purchase a property here. This increase in interest from outside buyers is not surprising because although Norwich may not be the biggest city in the UK it has a lot to offer including a lively town centre rich in history, a choice of beautiful beaches only an hours drive away and strong transport links with London. The city is also one of the safest in the UK with significantly lower house prices compared to London and the Telegraph recently included ...
