Welcome to The Bowler, the property and lifestyle magazine from Hat and Home.   

You will find each edition packed full of articles, market commentary and interviews, alongside seasonal recipes, cocktail masterclasses and of course some wonderful properties from across our branch network. 

Please take some time to explore our advertising partners as well. We have a strong relationship with every single one of them so you can be completely confident in the services and products they offer.   

The property market is rarely out of the newspapers and the past few months have been no different. Multiple interest rate hikes led to mortgages becoming more expensive and as a direct result, affordability for many buyers in the market changed overnight.  As a new Prime Minister took office the financial markets were settled and we are seeing normality return with all commentary suggesting the cost of lending is stabilising and likely to soften in the first half of 2023.  Prices have remained resilient due to the lack of available properties and in popular areas such as Wokingham, Crowthorne and Bracknell, I am confident that any softening of house prices will be muted in comparison to many areas of the UK. 

The rental sector, despite the constant legislative squeeze on landlords, continues to perform extremely well.

Driven by a shortage of available homes and a wealth of demand, rents have increased 13% in the past two years and show no signs of heading in any other direction.

The challenge for landlords is to keep one step ahead of regulatory change, so appointing an experienced agency with the necessary knowledge base has never been so important.   

At Hat and Home, we take property marketing to a whole new level to ensure we maximise the exposure of our clients properties to the most relevant audience which produces a quicker sale or let at a fantastic price. 

Our brand marketing is designed to evoke a reaction and drive engagement with Hat and Home, which in turn exposes our clients’ properties to a wider audience. The campaigns have a playful nature which reflect the brand personality and get people talking. 

Our team of experienced property professionals know how to navigate the challenges and opportunities of any market condition with a sole focus on delivering an exceptional result for our clients.  If you would like to talk to me about selling or letting your property, or about any of the other services we offer please call me on 07523 106 629.   

For now, please enjoy the first edition of The Bowler.
