Moving and Estate Agent Sites
I got a call this evening off our landlady to inform us that her boyfriend was on his way to give us our notice. Long story clearly, we weren’t told much. Suffice to say he never appeared and she called soon after and it seemed that they’d been arguing, on the brink of splitting up etc. etc. So despite no one officially coming round to tell us to move out, I’m not about to sit here and get a bombshell dropped on me. Annoying to be honest as our housemate is moving out to live with his girlfriend and we had a few plans on reorganising the rooms and the house. Now of course that’s all out the window and instead I’ve just spent the last 3 hours looking at house and flat rentals. Luckily Lord of the Rings was on TV so I wasn’t really interested in that 😉
I don’t know if it’s just the sites I happen to look at but 99% of the Estate Agent websites I look at are so badly designed it’s depressing. It’s bad enough having to look through them under the circumstances, but they are either something out of the 90s or has some really cheap bad flash animation as a splash page on them. I’ve set up a couple of estate agent sites in the past, and I know that they do all seem to like their flash! Thankfully there are sites like Right Move and Find A Property which are fairly okay when it comes to design so you rarely need to get to an actual Estate Agent’s site. Which is lucky, as these days when you search for “Area Estate Agents” the first 10+ results are for directories or accumulated sites (such as Right Move). On a search for “Wirral Letting Agents” I didn’t get one direct link to an actual estate agent! Perhaps this is the niche to get into for SEO? Estate Agents!
So, I’ve found a handful of places that we can afford and will hopefully be a reasonable enough size for us to live in. I’m going to have to say goodbye to my garden and almost everything in it 🙁 Next job is to start looking round these places. Well that’ll be home number 31. Not bad eh, on average I’ve move more than once a year for my whole life… 🙁
