Get ahead of the competition

So, we have all heard that spring and autumn are the best times to sell your home, haven’t we? This simply isn’t the case all of the time.

If a large proportion of would-be sellers are “waiting till spring” to go to the market, why then wait to copy them when competition is at its highest?

The myth that spring and autumn are the best times to sell your home can be misleading. It is based on the assumption that families aren’t looking to move around Christmas, and are all on holidays in the summer!

These traditional selling periods have gone out the window in recent years and here is why:

Less Competition

Fewer properties on the market will result in increased viewings of your home. As stock levels remain low, interest levels remain high. Don’t wait to join the competition – get out ahead of them.

Holiday Activity

The Christmas holiday season is a time people take stock for the year ahead. Decisions are made at home by the fire. Buyers do not take time off house hunting during the holidays, viewing activity can actually increase, predominantly online. Online property hits can increase over the festive season so make sure your agent has a strong online presence.

Returning home for Christmas

It is always great to see familiar faces over the festive season, faces you may only see once a year. Ask yourself how many of them may be considering a move home in the next year. Put yourself in the shop window and don’t miss out on potential buyers.

So, for anyone contemplating selling in the spring, perhaps it is worth considering bringing it forward? Why not plan a January launch? Properties are scarce at present so consider getting ahead of the competition. Remember big household decisions for the year ahead are made at Christmas.

It may sound too good to be true but fat dissolving injections are as effective as the name suggests.

They are administered by our in-house Dr. Micheal Flynn who has been attending our salon for the past 10 years. It is the double chin and neck area that is treated and is suitable for both men and women. If you haven’t heard of fat dissolving, it is a very popular and relatively new treatment that is used to target stubborn pockets of fat on the jaw line and chin area. The injection dissolves and eliminates fat cells in a safe and effective way, making it perfect for dealing with stubborn fat that simply won’t budge with exercise.

The main ingredient is a fat dissolving substance sodium deoxycholate, which is found naturally in the body. This is injected into the treatment area which over time will destroy the fat cells. These are then removed from the body by its own lymphatic system, a complex network that rids the body of unwanted toxins and waste.

It is important to understand that fat dissolving injections are not a weight loss treatment. The injections should only be used on people who are a healthy size or carrying a little extra weight. It’s most effective on the pockets of fat stored under the jawline, known as the double chin, a migration of fat cells from the cheeks to the jaw line.

The injections work at a slow pace. It can take serval weeks for full results, but once it’s gone, it’s gone. The results are permanent, once you don’t gain a massive amount of weight.

The next clinic is Monday August 22. To book an appointment or more information, call Jill on 064 6632966.

Six members of the Killarney Valley Classic and Vintage Club will set out from County Meath on Wednesday on vintage tractors.

They are participating in the annual Eastern Vintage Club’s Ring of Kerry Tractor Run which is raising funds for the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association.

Over 50 vintage tractors, including the six Killarney examples, will leave Nobber in County Meath at lunchtime on Wednesday.

After an overnight stop in the midlands on Wednesday night and Newcastle West on Thursday night, the tractors are expected in Killarney town centre just after lunchtime on Friday.

The ‘spectacular show’, now a regular feature of the Killarney summer, will bring the town to a standstill for around one hour.

On Saturday morning the group will depart Tony Wharton’s farm in Fossa before a nine-hour drive around the Ring of Kerry.

The run will finish with a spectacular drive through the Gap of Dunloe.

“We hope to pass through town around 3.30pm on Friday,” said local organiser, Tom Wharton, who is one of the six Killarney-based drivers who will undertake the 400km journey from County Meath to Killarney. “It is always a spectacular show.”

On arrival in Killarney, tractors will be joined by a group of classic cars that will depart Nobber at 9am that morning.
