Our free gift to Hertford this Christmas!

Breaking news ……We’ve teamed up with a children’s author and are giving away digital versions of his fast-selling book, Spot the Different.

Jerry Lyons originally wrote the book for his seven-year-old daughter as a bedtime story to show that being different is something to be proud of and to embrace.

It tells the story of a young girl called Lucy, who has is being bullied at school. She meets a magical ladybird called Spot, and he takes her on an adventure where they meet an array of unique animals.

These include Freddie the Flea who doesn’t jump, Charlie the Camel with no hump and Cassie the Crow that doesn’t like flying.

Andy Willard, a talented artist, wonderfully illustrates the book. It is currently sold out in print format, but we’ve been gained permission to share digital versions of it with families across Hertford as a Christmas gift to younger members of our community.

Jerry Lyons said: “I want to get Spot’s message of inclusivity, diversity and being proud of yourself into as many young hands and minds as possible. And thanks to the generous support of Abel of Hertford we are doing exactly that by offering the digital version for free.”

Abel of Hertford is delighted to be playing a small part in spreading the book’s message, and if you would like to get your free E-book, please email us at ah@abelestateagents.co.uk .

Remember folks sharing is caring, so if you know a young person who would enjoy reading a digital copy of Spot the Different, please share this article on social media and tag a friend or forward it to them.

Why the Big Boxing Day Bounce is Great News for Home Sellers!

 

In this two-minute read, we unwrap the staggering statistics and reasons which make Boxing Day more than just a time for food, family and friends.

Picture the scene -It’s the afternoon after the night before. It’s Boxing Day.

The presents are all open, the wrapping all recycled, visitors entertained and time for a bit of festive telly. Or is it?

December 26 is traditionally a time when people relax and breathe a little easier knowing that Christmas Day has passed.

And while people would often use the day off as chance to lounge around watching Only Fools and Horses repeats or the original Wizard of Oz for the 48th time, the digital age sees us doing different things.

A lot of people will be sitting on their sofas, spending their downtime searching for things on their smartphones and tablets.

And according to statistics from property portal Rightmove more than 25,147,701 pages featuring homes were visited on their site during last year’s Boxing Day.

That’s a staggering amount with high visitor numbers being reported by all the property portals, making it the busiest day of the year for people looking for new places to call home.

But what causes the Big Boxing Day Bounce of visitors onto these sites?

Well, the festive ‘free-time’ is a period when many people realise a few things that the busyness of daily life masks.

Such as:

Their home is too small to entertain visitors comfortably.

Or too big as the kids have flown the nest and the available space seems wasted.

Or that they’re too far away from loved ones (or too close in some cases).

These thoughts and emotions drive the Big Boxing Day Bounce, and that’s why putting your property on the market before the Christmas break is a very smart move.

Especially when you time your marketing to start online on Boxing Day.

This savvy sales approach means you do not need to be disturbed during the holidays but WILL benefit from your home being seen by the biggest possible buying audience.
