Are there any agents out there who think Christmas starts a bit too early these days?
It’s only November 15th but the inevitable (but loveable) John Lewis Xmas TV ad has just landed, complete with a fire burping, Christmas-pud lighting dragon, preceded this week by other heart-string pulling ads from ASDA, Iceland and Sainsbury’s.
But one estate agent has had to engage more (and earlier) than others with Xmas.
Spare a thought please for Lawrence Anthony Homes in Rayleigh near Chelmsford in Essex, which has just won an instruction to let a three-bedroom terraced house.
The pictures for the property, which is available for £1,300 pcm and was uploaded yesterday to Rightmove, comes ready for Christmas with a distinctly purple theme including a huge Xmas tree, several stockings hanging on the mantlepiece and snowflakes on the wall.
No mention is made of the move-in date for the property, which is presumably in the New Year, or at least 12 days after Xmas.
