I want to live in Brighton and Hove

For the next few months it is bound to be cold, already we are seeing heavy frosts and by February those cold evenings and icy mornings will no doubt have set in. No one likes being cold, and no one likes a cold house.


But these days we are all conscious not only of costs but also of being ecologically minded. We use timers to control the heat in our homes to suit our personal needs, of course we do. But if you’re trying to sell your home then your personal needs will have changed.


Those needs will now be dictated to in part by the timings of those essential viewings. If you plan to be at home for these then no doubt you can control the heat to suit those appointments as and when but if you are going to be out and the viewings conducted by your agent then you need to plan ahead and make sure that your home is warm and welcoming.


In a recent episode of Latest Homes Live: I Want to Live Here we were joined by James Powell from specialist building and restoration company DMB. Over the years we have looked at a great many projects that have been executed by DMB and all have not only been impressive to us, but have certainly won the approval of their clients. On our last visit we saw how DMB had installed a remote internet controlled system into a home so that the owners could control a great many aspects of their home, from music to cooking – and most importantly the central heating.


How useful would that be to a home vendor, but also what an attractive add on to any home for sale. There are several products on the market that offer this facility and any good builder or heating specialist will be happy to advise you on the one most suited to your needs.
