Busy time welcoming new tenants.

Busy time welcoming new tenants.
It has been a few weeks since my last introductory article about myself and Jaq being the new “Meeters and Greeters” at the Blue i office but it has been so busy with lots of people popping in for viewings, now that lectures have started again. It was quiet during the first part of January but the last week of January and February meant that we were getting up and down from our new basket, which is now in the middle of the office. The picture shows us having a bit of a relaxing moment from a busy Valentine morning welcoming people.
 
We are very surprised at all the activity and the lovely people that we have been seeing. They have all been very understanding about our white hairs and the fact that despite Maryvonne and Debbie removing all our hairs from the blue chairs, we do seem to leave quite a lot everywhere. We realise that jumping on to chairs is not really the done thing but how is one supposed to welcome people if you don’t jump on to the chair next door to them and offer up a paw of friendship. I am sure that you agree that there is nothing like a friendly paw at a time of uncertainty as house hunting can be really stressful.
 
What I must say is that whenever I give some body a paw they all shake it and give me a stroke. As far as I am concerned this is real friendship and both Jaq and I agree that this simple welcome helps calm everyone down for the viewings that they are going on. We also agree with the market research that patting us and giving us a stroke really helps the wellbeing in this stressful world we live in.
 
One thing though that Jaq and I are a bit upset about is the biscuit tin. It has some very nice chocolate, shortbread and ginger nut biscuits in it and when they are passed around to visitors, we are never included. We think that as part of the European Dog Rights legislation we should be included in the sharing of tasty morsels. I must dash .. take care and do pop in for chat, a pat and a friendly paw… they are all good for the soul and we love them.
 
Woof, woof..
 
Chip and Jaq

Derby Property Summit - June 2016

Derby Property Summit - June 2016
Just like the previous three years, this annual event was held at the iPro Stadium and, again like previous years, was well attended with over 300 people present, including standing room for about twenty people at the back. Last year there was a lot of talk about student accommodation and so this year there was even more about student accommodation, plus plenty more about graduate retention accommodation. As you may be aware, Cathedral Court has had its scaffolding removed and this massive building stands very proud in front of the Queen's Baths. The University has signed a 30 year lease with Prosperity Capital and from the way their CEO was talking, this won’t be the last deal they do with the UoD. More of this later.

Derby Property Provides A Higher ROI Than Monaco!

Derby Property Provides A Higher ROI Than Monaco!
There was a very interesting article in Bricks and Mortar in the Times recently about the different costs of buying property around the world based on the costs of flat in Monaco. The 2.02km2 principality hosted the F1 Grand Prix yesterday in driving rain, has a population of 37,800 and property prices are going ever upwards due to the lack of space. At the top end prices are £62,600/sq.m. just below those of Hong Kong of £75,530/sq.m. whilst a middle of the range flat would cost about the same as in Mayfair, £30,000/sq.m.
